Digital Imaging Group

The aim of the group is to further knowledge of Post Processing Techniques and caters for members of all skill levels from absolute beginner to advanced. The most commonly demonstrated editing programmes are Photoshop and Lightroom.

The group is open to all members of Chichester Camera Club. New members of the club will be especially welcome, as will visitors and those on the club waiting list.

Meetings are held on the evening of the 4th Tuesday of the month in the small hall at Tangmere Village Centre and start at 7.30. The charge for members of the club is £3.00 with £4.00 for non-members. Mid-evening refreshments are included in the cost.

The usual format for the evening is for two speakers to demonstrate skills on particular subjects for approximately 40 to 45 minutes each with a break for refreshments between each tutorial. The meetings are informal and both questions and discussion are encouraged. Notes on the tutorials are made available following the meetings.
