Exploring Photoshop CS4 with Mark Fitzgerald

Join us for an evening withMark Fitzgerald, Adobe Certified Photoshop Expert and author of “Photoshop CS4 After the Shoot”, as we Delve into the recently released PhotoshopCS4. Our exploration will begin with Photoshop’s redesigned user interface. Mark will also demonstrate some of the new and improved features, including:

• The new Adobe Kuler panel that allows you to explore, create, and share color themes with an online community. • Two new panels - the Adjustments panel for quickly creating adjustment layers, and the new Masks panel that allows you to painlessly create and manage layer masks in ways never possible on previous versions of Photoshop. • The cool new Content Aware Scaling feature lets you to protect parts of an image as you scale its size. • The Auto Blending feature that allows you to selectively choose tones, colors, and focal point from a range of images as they’re merged into a single image. • New soft-proofing feature for the color-blind individuals using Color Universal Design Organization profiles. • Updated print dialog that provides superior color management and the ability to preview out-ofgamut areas of the image in the print dialog.

Mark will also give us a tour of the new and faster Adobe Bridge CS4, and show us a few secrets to speeding up the workflow using some of the nifty tools buried in the menus. We’ll also be looking at Adobe Camera Raw 5 and some of its new tools, including the localized corrections and post-crop vignetting. If you’re already using Photoshop CS4, this presentation will point out many of the new features that you may not have seen yet. If you haven’t seen CS4, this will be your chance to get a close look at what all of the excitement is about.
