LocationThe Syston Council Offices, School Street, Syston

This well-established group initially concentrated on using the free editing tools in Windows. Needing to expand our techniques we then moved on to another free editing suite ‘GIMP 2.10’. This suite has many of the editing tools found in 'Adobe Photoshop' and easily provides sufficient tools for our needs at present.

Initially the group spent most sessions using different tools found in GIMP to ensure a fuller understanding of photo editing concepts. Latterly we have been working individual projects calling on our collective skills to provide help where needed.

When a group is well established it can appear challenging for newcomers and we attempt to alleviate this by providing ‘one to one’ tuition to ensure the basics are understood. Luckily Youtube has many tutorials online and these can be used to aid learning.

We all take hundreds of photos either by phone or camera and sometimes the results are less than perfect but with a bit of careful editing we can make acceptable changes.
