Photography Club to meet Feb. 12


By Gregg Heid

Special to The Preview

The Feb. 12 meeting of the Pagosa Springs Photography Club will be held at 6 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church, 434 Lewis St. Our speaker will be Doug Coombs on “Creating a signature for digital artwork.”

Join us for socializing at 6 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting and presentation at 6:30 p.m. Club members are encouraged to bring up to five photos on a thumb drive to share with the group after the presentation, if time permits.

Coombs will show how to create a signature for your digitally produced photographs and artwork using Photoshop. Such a signature can be stored as a .png image to be used from any post-processing tool including Lightroom and Photoshop. He will discuss downloading and adding additional fonts to Photoshop, concepts related to font customization, and will demonstrate in real-time creation of a signature and how to use it in Lightroom and Photoshop.
