Well, summer is upon us and we have had a night photo shoot with our generous photographer and member, Chip. Today I joined a group for a downtown shoot for Scott Kelby's Second Annual Worldwide Photo Walk. It was such a hot day that I didn't have the energy to keep walking, so after 1.5 hours I folded my tent and came home. I didn't even hang out and talk about my photos with others. I did want to say that while in Europe last month I took a great number of door photos. I am going to create a poster of them. I am rather excited to see that project through. What are you working on photographically speaking???
This Web site has some very cool photos. Be sure to click on "series" and check out the paint-in-water photos. He photographs paint poured into clear water. The results are mesmerizing.

It's late but wanted to say I enjoyed the last meeting 3
I just wanted to thank everyone for being so welcoming at the last meeting. I had a great time meeting the people I did and look forward to attending more in the future. It was worth the trip from Ephrata! Hope all is well.

Paula Varner, our librarian/book review coordinator.
We want to congratulate Paula on this much coveted reward for her faithful and frequent service to our user group. Paula joined us about a year ago and has come every month. She is in charge of the book reviews and has earned extra points (which equals extra tickets at drawing time). Tonight she was chosen as the recipient of the Deluxe Suite. She is ecstatic. A teacher and a hobby user of photoshop, she spends much time keeping her family album up dated. Now she can do it easier and with style.
We are so lucky to have her in our group. Paula suggested today that she knows a S. Cal family that lost everything when their home burned to the ground recently. They were able to save some severely damaged photos. Paula is purposing that we each take a photo and work on it for the couple. We could share our processes at a meeting, and the couple would get back restored images. A worthy project indeed... and suggested prior to her winning. Now she'll be able to help, too!

Michael quickly sent his presentation. I, on the other hand, have been slower. Lots to do. But here is the presentation he gave with links. Enjoy.
Below is an image of a postcard distributed at live music performances. It lets people know about upcoming shows. Photoshop works well for this. Sweeter still, once the propaganda is assembled in a PSD file, all the parts are ripe to be formatted for a web page. Wow!
How could this, aside from the obvious electronic distribution aspect, be useful? Links. Links. A simple postcard can be opened up to offer people new vistas of information. In this case, when you click links, there is music, another web page, another web site. Even the trailer to a new movie. Wow!
Check out the web version. See where it takes you.
Thanks for visiting.
Integration Bliss with Adobe InDesign CS4
and Flash CS4 Professional
You’re peanut butter is in my chocolate! You’re chocolate is in my peanut butter! InDesign has always been a best-in-class layout tool for print media. And of course Flash is the tool of choice used to create and deliver interactive content. Now, with their CS4 releases, Adobe has delivered killer integration between these two flagship products that enables traditional print designers to participate in digital publishing. Designers can take advantage of the rich layout and typography tools in InDesign CS4 to design rich interactive documents that can then be opened in Flash CS4 Professional for further development. Flash CS4 has made it easier than ever to add video, animation and interactivity to deliver engaging experiences.
In this session, Michael will take you through a whirl wind tour of current digital publishing trends, highlighting compelling examples that will inspire you and get you to rethink what a “document” is. Afterwards, he’ll walk you through the various features available in InDesign CS4 and Flash CS4 Professional that make it easier to create rich interactive documents. You’ll leave this session seeing how Flash and InDesign are better together.

Our member Roy Douglas will begin our meeting by sharing how he burns labels onto cds. Not onto label stock, but the cd itself. This is one of the only ways that doesn’t degrade the cd- which the glue/adhesive does on label stock. He will share how he laysout the labels and then burns them.
The next part of the meeting will be a rep from Wacom Tablet. She will be showing us the ins and outs of using a tablet while working in an illustration type application. Creating drawings using vector and raster artwork. We know you’ll want to excape the house and tax issues, so come and try your hand at creating a vector image. See how the new CS4 can draw like in raster applications. This has revolutionized vector creation. Learn when to use vector vs raster. If you don’t have a Wacom tablet there will be a few to try.
If you have one and want to get the most from it, plan to come early for some one on one time... and bring your tablet (we can hook it up to a computer somewhere to help you if you don’t have a portable computer. If you have questions be sure to contact us.
This is a great video interview on how to get super shots!
