Come see Russell Brown talk iPad portfolios, HDR Jan. 11
If you’ll be around San Jose next Tuesday, the evening of Jan. 11, come see Russell Brown present a double session to the Photoshop User Group at Adobe HQ:
Using your iPad, iPhone or Galaxy Tab as a Photography Portfolio
In the first part of the evening Dr. Brown will spotlight an incredible collection of useful tips and techniques for publishing your photo portfolio to your favorite portable devices. Learn some techniques for exporting images from Adobe Photoshop CS5 as an album without having to navigate through iPhoto.
Also discover the wonders of PDF export from Adobe Bridge CS5 and learn to publish your own portfolio books that you can share with others.
Creating Natural Toned HDR Images, and the Wonders of Camera RAW & Smart Objects
OK, we have all seen the classic over saturated, and super sharpened HDR techniques, but now it’s time to move to the next level of HDR imaging.
In this presentation, Dr. Brown will discuss some of his favorite new techniques for a more gentle and realistic looking HDR toning. This process may have you revisiting some of your earlier HDR shots and processing them again. All these techniques will be done using HDR Pro in Photoshop CS5.
Also covered in this part of the evening will be Dr. Brown’s Photoshop techniques for working with Camera Raw images in combination with Smart Objects.
Learn the true art of Photoshop creativity with these nondestructive techniques.
As always we’ll offer free pizza and drinks starting at 6:30, with the session commencing at 7. Please RSVP online if you plan to attend.
