Photoshop, editing and retouching - TBA
Its time to bring your laptops! We will be working with Adobe Photoshop, and for those that don't have a full version, Elements will be fine. Purchase elements on line at www.warehouseexpress.com or elsewhere. It's the industry standard editing/retouching software, and it will accomplish everything we need to make our portraits print ready, and yes there will be vino for those that linger beyond 4:30 for a natter or a portfolio review, and no you can’t stay over or camp in the garden... How many times have I said that?
