The Just Show Me How Professional seminar series helps photographers improve their digital workflow

Industry-leading imaging companies share professional digital workflow secrets to photographers in 10 cities nationwide

NEW YORK, January 10, 2005 – How do digital photographers handle thousands of pictures, maintain quality and efficiency in their work, and stay competitive? Several leading digital photography companies - including Extensis, GretagMacbeth, Lexar, Mirra, Nik Multimedia, Wacom, Microsoft, Adobe, and Blue Pixel - have partnered together to address these questions. While most professional seminars focus on the camera, editing, or printing, the Just Show Me How seminar gives photographers the tools and knowledge they need to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the complete digital process - after they’ve taken the picture. The Just Show Me How Tour for professional photographers begins in February 2005 and will visit 10 cities through April 2005.

The seminar will be taught by Rob Galbraith, professional photographer and digital photography educator. Rob will guide attendees through the process of creating an endto- end solution that really works, using the best features of the hardware and software available today. The goal of these seminars is to help serious and professional photographers refine the process after the picture is taken, so that they can direct their creative energies into what they really love - shooting pictures.

Specifically, Rob will teach attendees how to:

* Automate the transfer of digital images to the computer
* Sort and select digital images efficiently
* Construct a complete, color-managed editing environment
* Select and effectively use the correct tools and plug-ins for Photoshop
* Backup and catalog digital images for easy searching and retrieval
* Print digital images quickly and effectively
* Implement goof-proof methods for making files available to clients
