Gary Ombler, Photoshop, CS5.5

A big thanks from all of us to Gary Ombler for exploring some advanced tricks for creating stunning images in Photoshop, and all after a hard day’s work in a hot London. We covered a lot of ground with colour profiles, adjustment layers,dodging, burning, proofing, perfect focus from multiple images, and much more. I’ve got to stop using the I’m Feeling Lucky button in Picasa now then!

Thanks too, to Janet, for bringing us swag from the Flash Camp Midlands.
