Members Practical Session – Workflow – 9th November 2017

The next practical session will be covering the basic workflows from beyond capturing your pictures to processing them on your computer. Ian Pettit will walk briefly through the basic workflow that he uses, as an example and then we are going to split up into smaller groups. Bring your laptop, power cable, mouse and an example of one picture that you want to use.

We realise that you all use different software and versions, but we will try to help cover the following areas

  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Adobe Photoshop / RAW
  • Adobe Elements
  • Nikon View NX and View NXi
  • DXO
  • Fuji Wifi & Snapseed on iPad

We can’t promise to cover every operating systems / software versions permutations, but there is plenty of experience in the room, and the basic workflows remain basically the same.
