  • If you prefer to take notes (without a laptop)
    • The cost is $50, but you are encouraged to pick up on any tips given to individual users
    • arrange with another guild member to share theirs. (Due to space constraints: maximum of two people per computer)
  • Adobe Photoshop
    • If you have Photoshop
      • Make sure it’s installed and functioning before the start of the workshop
      • It must be a “CS” version (Photoshop LE and Photoshop Elements are lacking some of the features that I will cover)
    • If you don’t have Photoshop
      • Download a free and fully-functional 30-day trial from : http://adobe.com/downloads (hover your mouse over Photoshop CS4 Extended and click “try”)
      • The download file is 815MB. If you do not have fast internet access, contact me and I will sent it to you on a DVD disc.
      • Do not install the trial before Feb 1, 2010. If you do, the 30-day trial will expire before the workshop starts.
  • Adobe Lightroom (technically called “Adobe Photoshop Lightroom”)
    • If you have Lightroom
      • Make sure it’s installed and functioning before the start of the workshop
      • Version 2 preferred, but v.1 will still cover most of the features. (Adobe has released a beta version of v.3 if you want to experiment with it.)
    • If you don’t have Lightroom
      • Download a free and fully-functional 30-day trial from : http://adobe.com/downloads (hover your mouse over Photoshop Lightroom and click “try”)
