SF Photoshop User Group kicks off this week

I’m pleased to see that this Tuesday marks the first San Francisco meeting of the San Francisco Bay Area Photoshop Users Group.  According to the Evite, here’s what’s planned:

Photoshop Power Users with Kelly McCathran: In this session we will wow you with some new hot features and double wow you with some little known and under utilized tools… Adobe Bridge: Batch renaming multiple files; The Image Processor to batch convert to different file formats; Photomerge for building Panoramics. Creating and Batching Actions; Vanishing Point Filter; Placing Smart Objects; Image Warping; Patch & Spot Healing Brush Tools; Red Eye Removal Tool; History palette and painting with snapshots; Layer Masks; Setting the best Preferences Tips & Tricks as well as Keyboard Shortcuts.

Kelly McCathran is the Service Provider Evangelist for Adobe.  Her mission is to maintain relationships with the top print shops in North America. To fulfill that roll, she is the primary contact for printers to get the support, training and information they need to successfully work with Adobe’s line of products. In addition Kelly is a Certified Technical Trainer and an Adobe Certified Expert in InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, GoLive and PageMaker. Kelly has traveled North America and abroad teaching applications to the largest print shops in the world.

The meeting starts at 5:30pm at the Adobe SF office (601 Townsend St.).  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to so that they can get the right amount of pizza and drinks.

    There’s a similar group that recently started here in Los Angeles:
    I’m sure there’s groups all over & it’s great to see that there’s such a strong interest in PS.

    You can do it using the website. Take a look to see what others have done & create one of your own. Perhaps there’s one in your area already or one nearby. Contact other PS meetup groups for assistance. Before you know it you’ll be sharing pizza & brews with other Photoshoppers & talking about why the default stroke color is red.

    I attended one of Kelly McCathran’s seminars at the PINCShow 08 in SF earlier this year and can’t for the life of me find my notes with her contact information. I am a bit desperate to ask her a technical question. I would be eternally grateful if you could give me her email or phone number contact info. Many thanks, Suzuki Cady, Creative Director, Marin Community Foundation
