GIMP the Photoshop skimp

Western Riverina Arts are offering photography workshops at Leeton and Narrandera libraries this month. 

In addition to sharing tips and skills, attendees will be able to take home free software to edit digital photographs on computers running Windows or Mac operating systems.

"Digital photography is one of the most accessible forms of artistic expression," said Derek Motion, Regional Arts Development Officer. "Many people have a camera, whether it's part of their mobile phone or a dedicated device.

"These workshops will assist photographers to realise their potential."

The workshops will be run by Jason Richardson, who has decades of experience as a published photographer and has exhibited in Wagga Wagga and Leeton.

"We'll be looking at the program GIMP," said Mr Richardson. "It's a free alternative to Photoshop that has tools to crop, scale, and touch-up images.

"If you'd like an introduction to editing digital photographs, as well as software, join a workshop and I'll help get you started."

Bring a USB drive and take away GIMP.

"You may remember Gimp as a character in Pulp Fiction? I should add that he has nothing to do with this workshop," said Mr Richardson.

Workshop at Narrandera Shire Library on Friday 23 January from 2pm to 3pm. Cost is $5, book your place by phoning the Library on 6959 5585.

Workshop at Leeton Shire Library on Tuesday 27th January from 11am to noon. Cost is $5, book your place by phoning the Library on 6953 0945.
