Here is the latest tipfrom Glyn Dewis
Updates to Photoshop are great, but…
Creative Cloud means updates appearing on a regular basis and although we all like to see updates and enhancements, sometimes there are things we wish were left well alone.
For me one of the recent changes I’m not too keen on is the ‘New Document’ interface…I just prefer the older version so much more…
Photoshop Preferences Panel
Thankfully we can still use the old version and it’s very easy to bring it back.
1) Go to Photoshop Preferences (in Mac, Photoshop > Preferences)
2) Tick the Use Legacy ‘New Document’ Interface checkbox.

Glyn regulalry posts useful tips, tutorials and new items on his web page here. Further tips will be published as we are notified.
This month there is a good post on a retouching workflow.

For the first half of the evening Ken Worrall will give a tutorial on understanding Histograms and Curves. Ken is a new member of the club and we look forward to his contribution to our evening.
After the break we have great pleasure in welcoming back to the Digital Group Ann McDonald. This will be the second tutorial in the series where we ask one of the highly skilled members of the club to demonstrate how they developed on of their successful images from viewfinder to award winning image.
Ann is an excellent communicator and all those who admired her images of Japanese fishermen at the North Mundham Exhibition will have the chance to see just how she made them.
An evening not to be missed.
