As the second half of our opening meeting, Paul Eggermann presented a tutorial on four basic tools everyone should know how to use in Photoshop. Paul starts with Image Adjustment which changes attributes like exposure and shadows. Next comes Cropping to remove distracting elements and fit the image to the mat size for prints. Step three is Sharpening, something that helps nearly any image. Finally there is the addition of a Border. Judges tend to prefer a narrow white border although Photoshop has many more creative options. Come to the next critique session with your own images demonstrating your use of these techniques.
