Graphic Image Classes by the Photography Guy, Ronald Madson

Copyright © 2015 by California Genealogical Society and Library

Some of you know him as the “Photography Guy." Ronald Madson has been photographing CGS events for several years. He is also passionate about family history, his own and anyone else’s. 

Come hear Ron Madson present a series of graphic image classes this spring and summer. Sign up for one, some, or all. Learn the skills to label and clean up digitized family history photos, documents, and images. Then, learn the skills necessary to create basic Graphical Family History Charts. There are a number of image-editing software programs that allow you to do this work; Ron will teach you about three different systems, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Irfanview. 

Introduction to Photoshop™ for Family History will be taught April 25, 2015. A laptop with Photoshop installed would be helpful but is not required.

Creating Graphic Family Trees With Photoshop™ will be held June 13 (new date).  

Using Photoshop Elements™ for Family History will be held May 9 and Creating Graphic Family Trees with Photoshop Elements™ will be on June 6. These sessions are similar to the classes above but using Photoshop Elements software.

Irfanview™ Basics and Creating Graphic Family Trees with Irfanview™will be taught as a single class on June 27. 

Using Family Tree Maker™ will be held on July 25.
