Free Webinar: Photoshop Tips and Tricks

Free to SNPA Members


Most people work WAY too hard at adjusting in Photoshop and there are tools and techniques that make it easy, quick and give you better quality than what you might be getting right now. This isn't new to CC 2018, either. These tools have been around for awhile, hidden away so most people don't know to use them.

You will learn how to adjust multiple images simultaneously (better than Actions), how to balance color with a click or fine-tune with two simple sliders (goodbye Color Balance or Variations), convert photos to black and white in a click, but still control contrast, shadows, and adjust specific colors to shades of gray, save the same images as both color AND black and white, resize images during save, crop multiple images with focal length simultaneously (image cropping 500 portraits at once), and much more!

The coupon code needed by SNPA members for free registration has changed.  Please email Paulette Sheffield at for the new code to register at no cost.  Your newspaper's SNPA dues must be current for 2018 to receive the new coupon code. See below for details about registering free.
