Have you ever wanted to touch up your photographs but were afraid of commonly used editing programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom? This is the class for you! We will examine a program named “darktable” which is not only free but written and maintained by volunteers. We will also work with Luminar which is a very inexpensive alternative to better-known editing programs. A gentle introduction with plenty of time to ask questions. But experienced photographers will also have fun comparing experiences.


A desktop or laptop computer. Access to YouTube videos would be very helpful for viewing outside of class. Have some digital photos ready you would like to work on.

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away I was the photo editor of my high school yearbook and spent many hours in the school darkroom. During my working career, I founded and was Chief Technical Officer of a computer graphics software company. After retirement, I took up digital photography and have been actively pursuing it for over 3 years as my primary retirement activity. This will be my third time teaching a Senior College course.
