Roy Killen presents “Analysing, Evaluating and Improving Your Photographs” Wednesday 14 August 7.15pm

This presentation will help members to evaluate, analyse and improve their  own images, at the time of capture and in end processing.  Please be prepared to take notes during this presentation because Roy is not uploading a tutorial for it.

Roy gave a brilliant tutorial on resizing images presentation at the end of July. Those of us who thought we knew it all, were given a wealth of hints and tips. You will find Roy’s tutorial on his website.   Thank you Roy.  Your presentations are always appreciated.

Wednesday 24 July 7.15pm Roy Killen presents “Resizing Images”

Our club competitions require digital images to fit within specific size limitations (1920 x 1200 pixels and 2MB file size). Our print competitions place limits on print sizes. Do you know how can you transform the photographs that you capture into high quality images that meet the limitations of our EDI and print competitions?  In many cases you will need to reduce the size of your image files, in other cases you will need to enlarge them. Do you know the best ways to do that? Get answers to these and many other questions at next Wednesday’s presentation by Roy Killen
