Ok, there's availability NEXT week Wed and Thurs (Dec 9th and 10th). We can do this at around 7pm, which will give people enough time to get downtown (if they need to).

Please let me know if you can make on either or both days. I will choose the most popular date and go from there.

Here's a short list of items I can cover in the beginner session:

1. Basic navigation
2. Managing workflow - flagging, rating, compare view, keywording, metadata
3. Develop tab - using presets!, basic editing, brushes (soften skin, brighten teeth)
4. Exporting to web, jpg, Photoshop (for further editing)

I don't really use the Slideshow, Print, and Web tabs to be perfectly honest. For the more experienced users, the last workshop I did the veterans just sat at a table and learned from each other...that worked out really well.

Neil
Neil,

Both days will work out for me. Thanks for setting this up. I bet the everyone will appreciating this learning session.

Yes, cost is $50 for the room. Another option would be to do it in my condo, but I'm in a ridiculously small bachelor unit.

I can do Wednesday, NOT Thursday, and so won't put my name in case someone else can use the slot.

well we only got <4 people right now.

we could just huddle around a laptop? Instead of renting a room.

renting the room is probably better if we had at least 10 people...

but we barely have 3.

Im up for anything Neil.
You call the shots! :)

as far as i know i am fine with these days, i agree we dont need a room if we have such a small group

maybe we can go to u of t and steal a tutorial room/lecture room? i remember doing that a lot back at the days

Ok guys, I am looking at next Thursday as the date. Should I go ahead and book this?

The other option is to do it in my condo, but it is SUPER small. I am going to try to hook up my laptop to the TV in the party room so that people can actually see.

Remember that if I book this and only two people show up...they're responsible for the room between them...so don't let the other RFDers down if you've committed!

Neil, I really would not mind the living room haha, im such a cheapskate. But I want everyone to commit before you book the room. Is there a way to pay you in advance? EMT an amount? After you receive the $50, you book it?

I dont want to end up having 1 person show, and having to pay $50 all on one guy. I would definitely postpone this until people pay up.

Give me an EMT address, and I'll EMT you the amount depending on the split.
It should be 6 people right now, which means it's $8.33 / person
