Workshop to Demonstrate Efficient Use of Photoshop

A brand new course from the Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association (LEVA) has been designed by and will be taught by two highly respected members of the FVA community: George Reis and Jimmy Schroering.

"AUTOMATION FOR FORENSIC VIDEO ANALYSTS: From Photoshop to Scripting" will be conducted in the LEVA Lab December 17-20, 2012 and again May 20-23. 2013.

This four-day hands-on workshop will start with methods for working more efficiently in Photoshop for the Forensic Video Analyst. It will begin with concepts and exercises with Presets and Workspaces, but will quickly move into the use of Photoshop Actions - from the simple to the complex, as well as using The Configurator to truly customize the Photoshop workspace and workflow. From there you will move into scripting in Photoshop - from understanding the differences between Actions and Scripts to writing basic scripts from scratch. Participants will then apply these concepts to scripting using WinHex, broadening their automation toolbox. At the completion of this workshop, the participant will have the knowledge and experience to create simple and complex actions, basic scripts, and work more efficiently in their FVA workflow. With successful completion of this class, 32 hours of training can be applied towards LEVA Forensic Video Analyst certification.

Registration is open and further details available on the LEVA website. From the Home page, click the TRAINING tab then select Training Schedule.
