For those of you that were interested in a photoshop "class", what day works best for you all? Please get back to me asap so I can book a place for is to be.

Also, before the class, try and pick out some photos to work on.

For those that werent able to be at the meeting, we are going to get together and go over some photoshop stuff. This is open to anyone that wants to come, from those that have never used photoshop to those that just wanna drink and goof off with photos. I will bring both of my laptops so if you dont have a laptop or photoshop, you can play around on mine. Those that have laptops and photoshop, please bring them.

No, I hope not to go solo. I was thinking we would all learn from eachother kind of thing.

Im going to be busy until next Friday, so I probably won't be able to make it. As for holding it at Primrose, I'll check tomorrow and get back to you.

If Primrose isn't available I'll offer up my place as an alternative. No box wine but I've got lots of space and a pc running CS3 & Lightroom hooked up to the TV.

Can I have a show of hands how many will be coming and if youre mac or PC? I have some print outs and want to make sure I have enough.
For those that cant make it, if Wednesday goes ok, maybe we could hook up another night and repeat?

I am feeling a little out of my league now. At first this was just going to be for a few that had no idea about photoshop. Now a lot more peeps are coming that know a little to a lot more. Not sure what direction to take this.
Would you all just want a raise your hands and ask "how do you do this" kind of thing, or a set speech going over some basic stuff with some Q&A after? Or maybe smaller groups going over basics??

I'll be there and I'm on pc. I think a how do you do this might work well. I'm up for anything though. Whatever will be more beneficial to PS beginners.

PC. I'm self-taught PP, and I know there's basic stuff I don't know how to do, or I do the hard way that there's probably an easier way to do. I'm just looking to hang out and maybe pick up a few new tricks... Any format is good.

I'll bring my laptop as well. It has CS3 & Lightroom. Me & PS are old friends so I'm more on the hanging out side. Anything I can contribute or pick up is bonus.
