5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

  ***  The recording will not be sold separately.  ***


From color corrections on scanned paintings and oopsie corrections, to "from scratch" digital painting, veteran Photoshop user and illustrator Kathryn Ault Noble will introduce some of the tips and best practices she has learned and taught over the last 20+ years. Kathryn will walk us through setting up an optimum workspace, tools, customizing brushes, working within the correct color space for printing, image adjustments, layer blending modes, alpha channels and more.

This webinar will consist of a presentation, painting demonstration and Q+A session. It is for Photoshop users who have a basic understanding of the program but would like to deepen their knowledge and get the most out of it. Kathryn will be using the latest version of Photoshop.
