Picnic Sunday 27 January 2019, 11am

Another reminder for our club picnic on Sunday 27th January 2019 at the Belmont Foreshore opposite Deck 56, (56 Brooks Parade, Belmont). Bring your own everything including your sense of humour. We have suggested 11 am start but a few of us will be there early to secure the position and get a parking spot. If no parking just off load your gear and maybe park in Coles or the streets opposite. As well, the Belmont baths are now open for any children (large or small) who might like to cool down.

Thank you Roy Killen

Thank you Roy for a very thorough and interesting presentation on basic editing techniques using Photoshop, Luminar 3 and Photolemur.

Until last night, I was very confident that I had this all under control. However, Roy demonstrated the importance of going back to basics, to look at the new features of an editing program and to research other very viable image editors.

I would recommend that everyone visit the following sites, which offer free trials.

Luminar 3

Photolemur 3

Thanks to Roy, it was a a great start to the 2019 Presentation Programme.
