Digital Photography SIG
This SIG meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7.p.m.
Taking pictures has never been easier. Make use of your Virtual Darkroom and join us!
We play with digital photos from cameras or film scanners. We try to improve them with good software,
and then display them either in print or on screen. It's lots of fun and we all learn together!

ZOOMing Some things Every Photographer Should Know! Batch Convert - Resample vs. Resize - Batch Process .

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at 7 PM

Digital Photography Special Interest Group Tuesday, April 27,2021 What are these words and what do they mean? Resize and resample are words we often hear but what do they mean? Frequently these words are used interchangeably but they mean entirely different things. Batch Process – reduce the size of many pictures at once to send to someone. Or turn a bunch of photos to black and while in a few easy steps. Batch rename- Just took a trip Africa and all my pictures are identified by img_.00002 or DCS0789. I want them all to be labeled something like Africa 001, Africa002. How can I do that? For this meeting, I will be using a free program called FastStone. It does a great job of things mentioned above. I will also show you how to get the program. Other programs such as Corel PaintShop Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Irfan view, etc. offer similar ways to do these processes. This month’s photo contest topic is "Wildflowers". Wildflowers are in bloom everywhere! Check through your photos or head out and get some new shots! Send your photo to no later than April 26, 2021. ZOOM with us at 7 PM, April 27, 2021 at CKCS.
