Get ready to throw your creativity into hyper drive! Working with photographic textures has become all the “rage” in the photo editing world. Kate Silvia will walk you through the process of choosing the images you’ll want to try textures on, where to find textures on-line, how to make them yourselves, and finally, how to process the images. She will be demonstrating these techniques in Photoshop CC, Topaz Texture Effects, and the new program by MacPhun called Luminar! You can even use textures in Lightroom! It’s sure to be a fun and informative presentation. Links to Topaz and Macphun can be found on the bottom of any page of Kate’s website
