Some people learn best by reading then doing and some prefer to watch a tutorial then try to replicate it. While there are many sources for video tutorials to be found online, few come close to the offerings of Lynda.com. In this months meeting we will view a special selection of their videos so members can not only get to learn something cool but also get a sense of how they are presented.
If you have any special requests from the Lynda.com library please note them in your RSVP and I will try to get those videos. Examples of the offerings can be seen below. Three of the biggest names in Lightroom and Photoshop training. (these may not be the videos shown at the meeting)
After the video demonstrations we will have some open Q&A time which seemed to go quite well last time, so once again gather your thoughts and post them to the forum.
Samples from Lynda.com (note: these are not the presenters)
