There are many ways and programs available to create cards. In this workshop you will learn how to create quality, custom photo cards using Adobe Photoshop.
In this “hands-on” workshop, Judy will lead-off with a demonstration on creating high quality photo cards with your images using Photoshop. You will learn about formatting, printing images for your cards, presentation, pricing, materials and supply sources. This workshop will take you step-by-step through the process. You will have the opportunity to print your own card.
A basic understanding of Photoshop is necessary. Participants must understand layers. Photo editing and image processing is not covered in the workshop. However, we will cover how to size your images for your cards.

My interest in photography began when I was given a Girl Scout Brownie camera as a young girl. From then on, photography became a way for me to capture the moment, the emotion, and the beauty of a subject and make it mine. This interest became more serious while I attended San Francisco State University, where I earned a degree in Fine Arts. Life required that I put my art on hold while I pursued a career in commercial real estate, but I never stopped “seeing” with my camera. After leaving the corporate world and relocating to the Sacramento area from the San Francisco Bay Area, I investigated Sierra College’s Photography Department and there rekindled my interest in the photographic arts. Photography is a way for me to speak artistically – to offer new views of “ordinary” objects or places. In truth, there is nothing “ordinary” about anything if one opens their eyes to the world.
