JPEGmini

JPEGmini is a great utility for making your images smaller so they take up less space on your computer or for transmission online, all the while ensuring no quality is lost.

I started using JPEGmini a couple of years ago and have recently upgraded to JPEGmini Pro because my newer camera, the Canon 5DsR, has a 50 megapixel sensor and JPEGmini (non-pro version) has an upper limit of 50 megapixels. 

The folks who make JPEGmini are adamant that this reduction does nothing to affect the quality of the image and that the resulting file can still be used for printing, after all, it has done nothing to affect the pixels that make up the image. What JPEGmini does is removes a lot of "junk" data from the file, reducing the file size, often my more than 50%.

OneLight 2.0

Zack Arias' "OneLight 2.0" is a pretty cool video workshop. Zack doesn't play favourites with tech, using many cameras and a few different methods of connecting to his one light.

Workshop: Matt Cutting

To help out members who don't regularly mount their printed works we're putting on a special informal meeting a week prior to our official start so you can enter prints into our first competition of the year. There will be folks who regularly matt their own work in attendance to help us out and they'll have the equipment and matt board required for you to use. 

Bring along the prints you wish to make matts for and go away having made your first matts and armed with the knowledge you need to enter prints throughout the year.
