On Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., Vail Public Library invites photography enthusiasts to come and learn the basics necessary to edit your digital photos. The class will be taught by Rick Spitzer.
There are many computer software products that can be used to edit digital photos from cameras and smart phones. They all use the same strategy to enhance photographs. The purpose of this two-hour class is to demonstrate basic editing options found in virtually all photo editing programs.
Participants will learn how to use these features to edit exposure, enhance colors, sharpen images and more. A basic computer filing system will also be discussed. File size, file type and resolution will be included.
Spitzer is a local photographer who wrote and published “Focus on Photography: A Simple Guide to Better Pictures” and authored a book titled “Colorado Mountain Passes: The State’s Most Accessible High Country Roadways,” published by Westcliffe Publishers. He is a frequent contributor of photos to many periodicals.
His favorite job was 15 summers as a seasonal supervisory park ranger naturalist at Rocky Mountain National Park. During his park service summers, he sold photo prints to gift shops in Grand Lake and Estes Park. He is also one of the co-founders of the Vail Valley Art Guild.
