Saving, Enhancing and Sharing your Photographs Workshop with photographer Cal Rice on Saturday, February 27 and March 5, 2016

This workshop is for:  the family historian wanting to make digital copies of photographs from that old shoebox, the artist wanting photographs that look as good as their art, and, everyone who would like to share their images digitally on the internet.

Saturday, February 27, 2016:  Bring your laptop (desired but not required) so you can be “hands on” with the Picasa software which will be available free to everyone.  Cal will provide images so everyone can follow along together.  Getting the photo into a digital form may involve the use of a scanner, copier (perhaps you have one on your printer) or camera (including the smart phone).  We will  consider various techniques to transfer the images into the computer.  Photo correction includes:  correcting color on faded pictures, lighten images if needed and adjust contrast.  Finally, we will straighten and crop the image for maximum impact.

Homework:  take 3-5 of your photos, digitize them onto your computer, bring them into Picasa, correct the color and crop them for maximum impact.

Saturday, March 5, 2016:  Bring your images on your laptop, or on a jump drive, to share with the class and receive comments/assistance from the instructor.  Also bring any questions/problems from your individual work.

Cost of two day workshop:  $75
