Smithsonian Live: Fun for your brain

Experience  Photoshop  with Smithsonian  Live!

Digital photography has overtaken the photography world.  It also has spawned remarkable software products that allow you to enhance your images and create a variety of ways to store and display your photos to keep your memories alive.

“Chaz” Chumley, from the Office of the Chief Information Officer, will be demonstrating how to use Photoshop tools to turn average digital photos into rich images you will be proud to show your friends.  The basic tools available with all Photoshop releases may sound strange—dodge and burn, navigation, cropping, color correction, healing brush—but they are easy and fun to use. Take your photos to the next step with Smithsonian Live!

Join Chaz Tuesday,  Sept. 13 at noon in the Hirshhorn’s Ring Auditorium. The presentation will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour and will include time for Q & A. Smithsonian ID required; no need to register in advance.
