Steve Caplin, Photosynthesist and author of a myriad of books including the “How to Cheat in Photoshop” series. These books are considered by many to be the best and easiest Photoshop tutorials available today and Steve is coming to North Wales to share his skills, knowledge and techniques of Photoshop from these books. This is a rare chance to see Steve in North Wales so don’t miss this excellent opportunity to improve your Photoshop skills. Listed below are some of the topics that Steve will cover during the day.

1. What’s new in Photoshop: covering Content Aware Fill, Puppet Warp, Perspective Warp, Refine Edge dialog, Blur Gallery filters, and Adaptive Wide Angle filter.

2. Live photomontage: taking photo of audience member, cutting out head, moving eyes, adding beard, adding new body, placing body into scene (usually the room in which the talk is taking place).

3. The ethics of photomontage: an interactive talk in the run-up to lunch, involving an illustrated lecture on how much Photoshop can be held to be to blame for image manipulation in the media, together with a situation-led discussion of ethical practice.

4. 3D Photoshop: how to leverage Photoshop’s 3D modelling capabilities to produce entirely new artwork.

5. Camera Raw: How to get the most out of the technology.

6. Smart Objects: How to improve your productivity workflow.

7. Day for night: a live photomontage turning a building from day to night, mainly using Adjustment Layers.

8. Questions and answers - dealing with specific issues raised by members of the audience.
