    Advanced editing of photos. 

    1. Photo resizing – practically we can use any software we like, but I personally prefer MSPAINT as that typically give me easier interface. This is not very hard to grasp, so we should be okay with what the participants are comfortable with and can cover multiple software if need be.
    2. Type of files – we will cover JPEG, JPG, TIFF, GIF, PNG, BMP, RAW.
    3. Calibration – we will talk about it, however for this we typically need hardware. I have a datacolor spyder5 express to calibrate my monitor.
    4. We can to use PhotoScape for further editing. I have PhotoScape X Pro installed in my laptop. If participants are more comfortable in another one please let me know. I don’t really think that we need paid software to edit for our needs. In fact – I would also have not bought LightRoom had I known about PhotoScape or Gimp before J
