default Image Editing course using Gimp 2.10

Clarborough and Welham IT Group will be running their first, dedicated, digital image editing course in Clarborough Village Hall for five Friday evenings from 4th January to 1st February, 2019 at just £30.00. Classes run from 7.00pm to 8.30pm.

Starting with basic image cropping, exposure correction and sharpening, we will explore some of the multitude of options provided by this most recent update to open source Gimp image editor. Gimp 2.10 is a free alternative to Adobe's Photoshop CC and is completely free! We will even provide members with the download ready for installation on your own laptop. Alternatively, you can use one of our Windows 10 laptops for this course.

Members of our regular daytime classes (Tuesdays 1.30pm to 3.00pm and Wednesdays 10.00am to 11.30am) will recognise our 'Gardeners Question Time' approach which gives members control of lesson structures, but preliminary planning for this digital editing course already includes topics such as those mentioned above as well as:

Exploring various image file formats and their particular strengths.

Exploring the wide range of colour management options and simple conversions of colour into black-and-white. We will also explore the use of quick mask techniques to render parts of an image in colour while others are black-and-white.

Using layers to colourise black-and-white images - similar process to the recently released WW1 video.

Taking screen shots and incorporating them in text or presentations.

Copying and pasting parts of one image into another and also techniques for adjusting the appearance of parts of an image.

Introduction to Gimp's Filters including some of the artistic options.
