Photoshop: Layers & Sharpening
CPAUG Member Lynn Garwood will be covering why, how, and when to use layers (normal and adjustment layers) within Photoshop to enhance images. She'll also cover different methods to sharpen an image.
About the Presenter: In 1995, Lynn began to work with a PS guru of the time, which began a love affair for Photoshop & photography. After years of taking workshops, reading volumes of PS books, and practicing photography, she began to teach PS & PSElements to photo clubs and photographers. She loves to share anything about Photoshop.
