January 2014 - Gloria Whitney

Gloria gave us a wonderful presentation on plug-ins and showed examples of her work. There are literally hundreds of different plug-ins from different resources so it is a good idea to experiment with trial versions before purchasing. It valuable to have a clear vision of what you want your end product to look like and then select the plug-ins that will give you the desired result. Use plug-in to finish, not fix our images. Capture them in the camera correctly first.
