Adobe Debuts New Photoshop Tutorial Series on YouTube for Beginners

Here’s a link to FastStone Image Viewer a freeware program that I use as my default image viewer. It loads quickly and is very easy to use. It also has some basic editing capability but be careful as I believe it’s edits are destructive (permanently change the file).

Next month’s meeting will be held on Sept. 15 at the OLLI building. Check the front table for location if we are not in the Auditorium.

We will look at some Lightroom and Photoshop quick tips, any recent program changes and whatever other goodies I have found.

An hour at the end of the meeting will be available to work with anyone who needs help with Lightroom from our experienced users.
