PostworkShop is unique and easy-to-use software for artistic image transformations. With auto- and manual modes of operation based upon an unparalleled collection of built-in Style filters and brushes. The user can create signature artwork in simple workflow routines, using either the standalone application or an Adobe® Photoshop® plug-in.
The participants In this webinar will be provided all information needed to complete two specific projects. Initially though, the presentation will begin with short reviews of several example outputs, looking at the “before-and-after” aspects of each and covering some of the primary artistic characteristics which PostworkShop has brought to each one individually.
In the first project exercise the concentration will be on using the built-in Style filters in combinations (essentially building up multi-layered transformations, based upon both Drawing and Painting components). A second, and more complex, work effort will then be covered. Here attention will center upon assembling a custom Style from the PostworkShop Building Block filters. Finally, PostworkShop’s manual painting engine (the Bitmap Editor) will be reviewed, focusing on its use in image enhancement(s) either via the production of masks or photo-sampled painting.
John Stevenson has been taking photographs since childhood, first experimenting in the early 1960s with an Agfa Isoly roll film camera (producing square format transparencies in glass mounts). He first produced digitally composed images in 1995, printing his own work on canvas using a Hewlett-Packard DesignJet machine. Some of this pioneering work was exhibited via his participation in the Art League at the Torpedo Factory, in Alexandria, Virginia. A first solo exhibition of all-digital work – A Shifting Light – digital photorenditions – was presented at the Foundry Gallery in Washington D.C. in 1999. Currently he is the Director of Business Development with Xycod Kft., developer of the PostworkShop digital art studio platform, http://www.postworkshop.net, and also a columnist for Digital Paint Magazine. Some of his most recent exhibited work has featured backlit digital transparencies – a retro homage to that very first camera
