Using Photoshop to prepare scientific figures

Photoshop is the most powerful image manipulation software that exists and great care must be taken when using it to manipulate images for publication in scientific journals. This workshop will familiarise you with the basic functionality of Photoshop and will provide you with an image preparation workflow that does not violate image manipulation rules as laid down by science publishers.

We will discuss image size, resolution and colour. Basic universal image adjustments using levels, curves and brightness and contrast will be explored. Compositing of several images into figures for publication will be done using layers and masking techniques.

Organised by John Runions.
