Description of program: Two digital artists exploring the WOW and the HOW of Photoshop. We had two Photoshop experts who use the program differently show their work and demonstrate what they do. One was a retoucher who does work for photographers and ad agencies. He was the left brain, very technical. The other was a photographer who uses Photoshop creatively. He was the right brain. (Or maybe it was vice versa? Anyway, one demonstrated the technical part and the other demonstrated the creative part.)
