It was standing room only in New York, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles -
the first four stops of the Just Show Me How Professional seminar tour, where
attendees learned a variety of tools and techniques that address digital workflow
issues of the professional photographer. Only six cities remain on this popular
ten city tour, so only a limited number of attendees will get to benefit from
this valuable information. The remaining cities are:

· Dallas, TX: March 13th

· Boston, MA: April 3rd

· Washington, DC: April 10th

· San Diego, CA: April 17th

· San Francisco, CA: May 1st

· Orlando, FL: May 15th



Several leading digital photography companies -- including Extensis, GretagMacbeth,
Lexar, Mirra, Nik Multimedia, Wacom, Microsoft, Adobe, and Blue Pixel - have
partnered together to address critical workflow issues that help professional
photographers stay competitive. While most seminars focus on the camera, editing,
or printing, the Just Show Me How seminar gives photographers the tools and
knowledge they need to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the complete
digital process - after they've taken the picture.



The seminars are taught by Rob Galbraith, professional photographer and digital
photography educator. Rob teaches attendees how to:

· Automate the transfer of digital images to the computer

· Sort and select digital images efficiently

· Construct a complete, color-managed editing environment

· Select and effectively use the correct tools and plug-ins for Photoshop

· Backup and catalog digital images for easy searching and retrieval

· Print digital images quickly and effectively

· Implement goof-proof methods for making files available to clients
