That picture has been photoshopped! Or maybe you have been photoshopped. Adobe Photoshop is considered the gold standard for editing digital photos. From removing, adding or adjusting parts of the photo; Photoshop can do it all, but at $600 plus, it’s over budget for most people. What’s the alternative?

For less than $100, you can get Adobe Photoshop Elements and have more than 90% of the features of Photoshop. Jim Evans, Greater Cleveland PC Users Group & APCUG will give us an overview of Photoshop Elements. He will show how to use layers (think of parts of a pizza) to clean up and edit your photos and turn them into works of art and treasured family photos.

Orv will discuss why 2014 is the year that Linux starts to win the desktop, which is the final Linux frontier. “Linux won. The penguin has achieved world domination, and the usual commentators completely missed it even after years of predicting it because it’s not something that happened in a single flashy event, but rather has been the product of years of hard work and steady improvement,” he said, quoting his friend Carla Schroeder, at Linux.com.
