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.
