A Great Photoshop Weekend In LA!

The Visualville crew, (Scott & Nancy), spent this past weekend teaching Photoshop in the beautiful "Old Town" area of Covina, California. A very special "Thank You" to Kathy Trerotola of Portraits by Kathy for hosting the class and Dennis Nisbet of Meridian Professional Imaging for sponsorship.

Nancy and I would also like to say "Thanks" to all of the students, several of whom traveled long distances to be part of the class.
