Creative Editing Techniques:

A series of monthly sessions. If you would like to try new creative ways to interpret your photos, this course is for you. The course is about making photos more “artistic” or “impressionistic” using the editing tools in Photoshop, Affinity Photo, Topaz plug-ins and the new Topaz Studio and other apps that use layers.  

The  session topics are as follows:

  • October will include a short slide show of images created using these techniques as well as a YouTube video on the basics of layers.  
  • November- Texturizing  and creating images using a technique  called “Line and Reveal”.
  • December- Using Topaz Simplify with one of my favorite workflows.
  • January - Creating “watercolor”  and other “painterly”  images using Topaz Simplify.
  • February -Using textures in a variety  of ways.
  • March - Frames, borders and edges.
  • April and May - These sessions are freeform, responding to needs, wants and new ideas from members.

 While digital art is the objective learning more about the use of layers and other editing tools will be useful for “normal” editing as well. There’s a lot to learn and it’s a lot of fun!

In this session I’ll do an introduction that will include a short slide show of some of the images I’ve created using the techniques that I’ll be demonstrating . I’ll show a YouTube video on the basics of layers to build a foundation for the creative techniques.
