Tips and Tricks in Photoshop

Presenter: Peter Green, Mac Advice

Photoshop is one of those key applications that most of us would have used in a limited way, and a few of us would have delved deeper into the almost unlimited techniques and menu items.

Peter Green is regarded as one of the most proficient users of this application and has developed a very enviable reputation.

In tonight's session, Pater has brought along his bag of tricks and will delve into a fascinating aray of techniques and applications.

Peter’s involvement in photography goes back a long way. Peter trained as an art and craft teacher when he left school, and majored in Gold and Silversmithing. After teaching for several years, he worked at the Publications branch, designing and laying out Education Department magazines (pasting columns of dummy type and black and white photos onto art boards).

He spent several years getting a Sociology degree at Latrobe University, and teaching Sociology at Prahran Tech and Toorak college. At that time, he also shot and edited a 15mm film on the closure of the Whyalla shipyard, in South Australia.

It was the Macintosh that brought him back to graphic design – first MacPaint and MacDraw, then Pagemaker, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Peter was also one of the founding members of the first Macintosh User Group in Melbourne.

In 1991 he set up Mac Advice. His brother joined him a few years later. He has been teaching Pagemaker, Illustrator, and Photoshop at his business, and at the CAE, for 25 years.

He is currently doing a PhD in Sociology at Victoria University.

Mac Advice is still going strong.
