Reminder: Upcoming SAQA meeting at Smiling Turtle Art Spot, June 13th

This is a reminder about our upcoming quarterly meeting to be held at the Smiling Turtle Art Gallery in Omaha on Saturday, June 13th at 11:00 a.m.  Shea Wilkinson and Rhonda Baldwin will be talking about basic photo editing.

They plan to cover basic photo editing needs, such as adjusting an images for the correct file size, or pixel size, brightness and contrast, cutting out the background for pure white, and more. They will also look at batch editing, which allows you to make the same adjustments to multiple images at once.

This should be an informative meeting on a topic that we have had many questions about.

Also, remember the deadline for the regional show, “Deeply Rooted” is fast approaching (entry opens June 16th, final deadline for submission is July 15th).  Hope you are planning to enter something!

As always, you may bring your own beverage and lunch if you want.  Also, and show and tell or kudos!

Hope to see you all there!
