August 16, 2018 Marcia Brandes Will Present “Photoshop for Photographers”

The Smyrna Chapter of the GNPA is excited to have Marcia Brandes present Photoshop for Photographers. The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm at the Smyrna Community Center. Members as well as interested potential members are invited.

Many of us use and love Lightroom for processing our photographs, but are intimidated by its big brother, Photoshop. There are wonderful features in both, and together they make a great package. Yes, Photoshop is complicated, but you don’t have to learn everything – just what you need to enhance your images.

Marcia Brandes was in the art business before she became a photographer, and has been using Photoshop for over 20 years. Step by step, she will introduce you to the tools that Photoshop offers, demystify layers, and show you how to print diptychs and triptychs. She will show how to remove unwanted telephone lines, objects, and even people; how to remove lens distortion and how to straighten a parallelogram into a right-angled rectangle. Among other things, she will demonstrate some simple fixes with Blending Modes, and show how to turn your photos into greeting cards or other projects.

Marcia is a member of the Roswell club and a charter member of the new GNPA Conservation Committee.
