Sky Replacement Techniques using Photoshop/Elements
(and Plug-ins such as Perfect Layers from On-One and Luminar from MacPhun)
Instructor: Betty Wiley
Date: Saturday, November 18
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Cost: $70 Member/$90 Non Member
In this class, Betty will show you how to replace bland, boring, colorless skies focusing on using Photoshop/Photoshop Elements.  The techniques that Betty will demonstrate in this session are relatively easy and fast and create a believable look.  This is a popular class that Betty has taught to many groups and organizations.  Learn how to jazz up your images by replacing those ugly, bland boring skies easily and quickly!
This class will be focused on techniques using Photoshop/Photoshop Elements however Betty will also demonstrate other ways to replace skies using plug-ins such as Perfect Layers from On-One and Luminar from MacPhun software.  Perfect layers and Luminar are great alternatives if students do not own or use Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
This is a hands-on class because we believe everyone learns best by practicing and doing instead of simply watching a presentation.  Therefore, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.  Basic computer skills are required and students should be able to find and access files on their own computers.  Since this class is primarily geared toward techniques using Photoshop/Elements, students should be familiar with using this software although proficiency is not required to take this class.

We will provide sample images for students to work on during class.

Life after NIK/Google– Exploring other plug-ins such as Luminar (and others) w/ Betty Wiley 12/2

December 2, 2017 1:00 pm

Life After Nik/Google – Exploring other plug-ins such as Luminar (and others)
Instructor: Betty Wiley
Day: Saturday, December 2
Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm
Price: $70 Member/$90 Non Member
This class will be focused on using Luminar (by MacPhun Software which is a great alternative to the popular plug-in Google/NIK plug-in suite used by many photographers.  As many of you know, Google recently announced that they would discontinue further support of the Google (formerly NIK) plugin software suite. Luminar is a plugin for Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as a standalone image editor. This means that there are lots of ways you can use this software in your editing workflow.
Luminar is very easy to use and comes with presets for quick editing and you can change the effects for the exact look you want.  In this class, you will learn how to add Luminar to your Lightroom and Photoshop workflow and how to use Luminar in place of Nik/Google’s Color Efex Pro filters. There are a wide variety of presets that you can apply to create quick looks or add finishing touches. You can even use it in lieu of Photoshop if you are a Lightroom-only user. Luminar was initially only a Mac product but a Windows version (currently beta) was just released. Betty will show you how the Luminar interface works and how she uses the many filters, presets, and features to give her images extra pop or a special look.  You can quickly create an Orton effect, add a golden hour look to your images, extract details, create a grunge or dreamy look in seconds plus much more!
This is a hands-on class because we believe everyone learns best by practicing and doing instead of simply watching a presentation.  Therefore, students are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
Prerequisites:  basic computer skills are required and students should know how to find and access files on their own computers.  Luminar should be installed and running as there won’t be time during class to install the software.  Please see the link below to download the software.  Note that a trial version is available.
