    Join us at the next DSLR Users Group meeting where Steven Stewart will be demonstrating Topaz image editing software.  

    Topaz is well known for its collection of sophisticated photo-editing plugins that can be used with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. A relatively recent addition to the Topaz family, Topaz Studio, not only provides an integrated user interface for your collection of Topaz plugins, but also provides basic editing features and even some more advanced features such as masking and layering.

    Steve will give a demo of using Topaz Studio as stand-alone editor, comparing its capabilities to Lightroom and Photoshop. He will then show how he integrates Topaz into his workflow to create images that would be difficult to achieve with Lightroom, Photoshop, or Topaz alone. Time permitting, he will also give a whirlwind tour of the many available Topaz plugins.

    We are set for an outing to the Baltimore Basilica!  Meet at the Long Gate Park & Ride at 11am, Saturday, August 25th.  

    We plan to spend an hour or two at the Basilica (mostly inside). We will then go up to the Eutaw Place area, where there are two former synagogues in the Neo-Moorish style and one in a more modern style, to photograph the exteriors.  The 1st two were designed by Jos. Sperry, who also designed the Bromo Seltzer Tower.

    2.  (former) Oheb Shalom, 1305 Eutaw Pl

    3.  (former) Baltimore Hebrew Cong., Corner Madison and Robert Streets
