As a photographer, you are probably familiar with Adobe's family of editing software, including Lightroom and Photoshop. But are you leveraging them for an efficient workflow? Or if you only use the same few functions, how about delving in to take your editing to the next level? At Imaging USA 2017, there are five Adobe-sponsored classes, designed for beginners and masters in mind.

In this Adobe Photography Solutions track, renowned photographers and Adobe experts will teach you tips that make retouching your photos fast and fun!  And best of all, these courses are FREE with your Imaging USA All-Access pass. So make sure you add some of the Adobe-track classes to your program at Imaging USA this January!

Jared Platt
January 9, 8am-9:30am
Whether you are shooting portraits, editorial or weddings, you spend a lot of time behind the camera, only to be followed by even more time behind the computer. It's time to reverse that equation and spend your time doing what you love and where you make your money. Join wedding and portrait photographer Jared Platt as he shares tips that accelerate your speed and increase the quality of your work. A better workflow doesn't just affect your photography; it improves your life.

Bry Cox, M.Photog.Cr., CPP
January 9, 10am-11:30am
Most photographers waste long hours fixing images. Bry Cox will show you how to rise above the crowd, giving you the gift of time every day by learning some simple techniques (like his one-minute system for retouching), and how to use the latest features in Lightroom and Photoshop to solve common challenges quickly. He'll share how these features are perfect for fashion-type images, but also great for solving issues with real people, like flyaway hairs, wrinkles, blemishes, skin tone, and more - fast. Plus he'll show you how to create and apply your own creative styles and looks to make your images stand out and wow your clients.

Jared Platt
January 9, 5pm-6:15pm
Learn about the changing landscape of the stock photo industry and how you can showcase your work to millions of potential buyers through Adobe Stock. Join photographer and Adobe Stock contributor Jared Platt to discover how to kickstart your career in stock photography with existing images from your portfolio and generate meaningful revenue with stock. Jared will teach you how to streamline your workflow and share practical tips for succeeding in the industry.

Dave Cross
January 10, 8am-9:30am
Join Photoshop and Lightroom expert Dave Cross as he demonstrates his proven techniques for solving common photography problems like sensor dust, warped buildings, distracting objects, harsh light or shadows, haze, backlit images, and more. You'll see how to fix most of these issues in Lightroom, and when a quick trip to Photoshop can help. You'll also learn some key strategies when working with crooked images, dealing with lens distortion, and how creating presets can save you time for commonly used fixes such as white balance, color adjustments, and more.

Julieanne Kost
January 10, 10am-11:30am
If you're tired of weeding through hours of tutorials trying to find practical Photoshop techniques, little-known features, and hidden gems that are relevant in your work, then this class is for you. Geared towards intermediate to advanced Photoshop users, Adobe Digital Imaging Evangelist Julieanne Kost will demonstrate a combination of new features as well as time-tested techniques to help you gain efficiency and reach your creative vision. If you're looking to deepen your Photoshop skills and unlock the power of image editing to take your Photography to the next level, then this master class is for you.

Imaging USA 2017 in San Antonio is all set to provide three days of workshops, classes and opportunities on the trade show floor to kick off a new year of profitability for you. But, did you know that you can take advantage of more intimate, hands-on classes the day before? 

The Hands-On track at Imaging USA is part of the Pre-Convention schedule and takes place Saturday, January 7th. These classes require an additional registration and fee, but offer you a chance to dig deeper and make even more out of your time at the world's oldest and strongest photography convention. During the class, students have the opportunity to get advice and lessons from instructors thanks to more one-on-one time. You will go out on an actual photo shoot and practice with your own camera (which means that bringing your equipment is a must)! Since the classes are hands-on, you will be expected to do more and be an active participant in the workshop. These classes are for those with the strongest desire to get up and learn!

Hands-on classes are shorter, so you can attend multiple sessions during the day and get all the practice you want. There are three different sessions for each Hands-on program held on Saturday, January 7, 2017, so you can sign up for up to three classes for the day! There are also special pricing offers available for participation in Hands-on sessions. Attend one Hands-on Class for $79, two for $129 or three for $159. Space is limited (max. of 35 participants in each class) for the benefit of students, so classes sell out fast.

Check out this list of Hands-on classes to see which fits you best, and then head over to ImagingUSA.org/Register to sign up now!

Imaging USA in San Antonio is right around the corner, January 8-10, 2017, but there are a few ways to save money if you get started NOW! Here is a list of tips to put in place and ensure that you show up in Texas with even more spending money...

1. REGISTER EARLY! Aren't registered yet? Imaging USA is the world's strongest and longest-standing professional-photography convention, with hundreds of classes, tons of networking opportunities, a huge photo exhibit, and a giant expo floor. Over 10,000 photographers attend to be taught by the industry's best. Register by December 8, 2016 to save $50 with the Early Bird Rate! 

2. BOOK YOUR HOTEL EARLY! If you're not staying at the host hotels, chances are good you'll have to spend some money on a taxi or parking to come over for some of the events. Why bother? Stay at the host hotels and be at the center of it all. They're filling up fast, though (especially for Pre-Con) so BOOK NOW at our easy, one-stop-shop booking platform.

Imaging USA Host Hotels

•  San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk
•  Hilton Palacio Del Rio
•  Grand Hyatt San Antonio

3. FIND A ROOMMATE! Get on theLoop, PPA's exclusive social network, to post about and find a roommate. Everything's cheaper when you split the cost. 

4. MAKE AN EXPO GAME PLAN! Create a shopping list of the things you need for your studio in 2017 and grab those items first. The trade show floor is the best place to find exclusive deals from vendors, so save your holiday cash for January 8-10. 

Get ready to enjoy an amazing trip to San Antonio and rest easy until then knowing you're saving money!
