If you can't remember what they were it could include trips to Lee Valley, Heybridge Basin and the memorabl...

This week is billed as a technical evening and we have put Phil and Joe head to head to demonstrate how they would improve images that could do with a little help. We have given them the same three images each and left them to do some magic and then tell us how and why and what they have done. Since...

Hi all, this is an early reminder that we have a guest speaker, Anne Miles, coming to us in June. Could everyone make a special effort to be there, not just so we look good but because she is really good.
More later

Re: Slice Watch

So Trevor asked which two I sold. Always a surprise and I believe no help in deciding what sort of image to display!! I will try and attach so you can ponder the question. :)
