8. Using textures both handmade and purchased.
9. How I store my images on the devices and use iCloud
10. Printing directly from the Mobile device to the best Canon or Epson printers.

Part 2

Jerry will also be demonstrating the use of three applications for post-processing images on the phone - Snapseed, Touch Retouch and Lightroom Mobile (available for iPhone and Android) All apps are free except Touch Retouch, which is under $3 on the App and Play Stores.

Although Jerry will be using an iPhone, the functionality of the apps across platforms is virtually identical, so Android users will have no problem following along on their devices.

Participants are encouraged to download and install all three apps on their devices in advance of the workshop. A link will be provided so you can download the same images that Jerry will be processing, allowing you to work alongside him in real-time if you wish.

A complete set of speaker notes in PDF format will be provided and the workshop will be recorded allowing registrants to replay it at their convenience.
