PRESENTER / WORKSHOP EVENING TOPIC: John Burnett – “Photo Editing”.
“Photoshop ELements” is very good. This is the program that John used for this evening’s topic. Photos in JPEG are limited for what you can do to modify them while the Raw format allows more options to make edits. The Raw files have the most information of the pictures that you have taken.

1)    Blue Rocks Shanty. First, set highlights/ shadow/ white/ black/ saturation/ etc.  Then you can work with layers and graphics to adjust colour of sky/wood/glass/etc. You can then paint on the layer and it does not affect the original photo.
2)    Torso of a woman. John showed how adjusting highlights/shadows/etc. affects the skin tone and colour of hair.  Although you have to be careful when adjusting you can work around the eyes, mouth, etc., even take folds out of the blouse.

There are many tools that you have to work on your photo.
