    Default Possible Workshop on Photoshop?

    Right.. I've seen quite a few photos posted here in this forum, with some degree of photoshop done to them. Some of them well done, some of them not. Some of the nicer ones, everyone will wonder how it's done, but won't really know even if explained to.

    Many of the photos can definitely look better after proper photoshopping. Many times, I also tell people my photos only look presentable because photoshop.

    As it is, I'm just wondering if anyone will be interested in attending if I conduct a Photoshop workshop (for free).. Aim is
    1. to teach you the basic power usage of photoshop
    2. to expose you to layers/masks, and the power of non destructive editing
    3. to focus on photo-retouching, in particular, portraits (photos with people in them)
    4. to run thru some very basic concepts of photography
    5. to run thru some "mildly bad photos" and how to save them.
    6. to teach how to touch up people's faces, how to do airbrushing/skin smoothing until it's similar to magazines..
    7. to teach you how to slim down/fatten body parts etc.
    8. to maybe answer the most commonly asked qn.. how to select hair/eye/clothes/material/etc, change its colour etc. Just to let you know, I almost never use the magic wand to do this.
    9. NOT to teach you how to draw or paint because I can't do either..

    disclaimerI'm only perhaps a slightly more advanced user of PS. I'm just thinking of sharing some of my knowledge with you.

    This way, cosplayers will be able to do something to improve their photos..
    It'll also resolve the problem of a few cosplayers asking me to teach them PS.

    Yet to settle the location, it'll depending on the number of people. The date.. will have to depend on when I can speak again. As some people here are aware, I went for a minor throat operation, I can't really speak now for the pain. It'll have to be after I feel sufficiently better.

    Well feel free to vote for the idea, or perhaps start a list of interested participants.

    *edit* this workshop will NOT be for those against spoonfeeding newbies, because by demostrating to you how to use those tools in practical situations IS spoonfeeding..

    sounds interesting. But of course you need to give a brief description on which level should attend the photoshop workshop since there are so many photoshop gurus around here which I believe wont benefit ( or just benefit too little ) if they attend the workshop. Better let those that does not really know about the program to take the seat n benefit from it.
