Hello All,

I just purchased a Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDRE1TB from NewEgg.  The normal price of $249.99 is discounted $40 with the promo code that NewEgg e-mailed me.  Apparently, that code is user-specific since I had to enter my e-mail address as well as the code before the discount was applied.  My final cost, with shipping and tax was $225.74.

General Discussion / Notes from the August 21, 2016 Photo Group Meeting

Hello All,

Here are my notes for the SLO Bytes Photo Group meeting of August 21, 2016

The focus of the August 21st meeting of the Digital Photography Group was Using the Tools of Photoshop Elements
For this session, we tried something different. Members brought a laptop and used Photoshop Elements to improve the sample images provided.
(See for these sample images)

Ralph Sutter began the meeting following up on Don Jones' recommendation of using the Blend mode. Sutter provided several related links
   Photoshop Blending Modes;
   and Ralph's chart on blending modes Blending Modes Chart;
Ralph then demonstrated how to display metadata when viewing images in Irfanview. Simply open the image in that program and hit the e key on the keyboard.

Sutter then mentioned the Photoshop Elements add-on, Elements+ and gave a quick demo of how to use it to display metadata as a graphic on an image.
Learn more about Elements+ at

Members then found a comfortable work surface and each edited selected images.  After about 45 minutes, we viewed our handiwork with each member commenting on what steps he or she took to modify the originals.

The next meeting of the Photo Group will take place on September 11th at 4:00 pm, two hours later than usual.  It will also meet at a different location, the ocean end of Pier Avenue in Shell Beach.  The assembled members will then go on a live photo shoot, photographing scenes of their own choosing.  We will compare our images when our meeting returns to the home of Ralph and Connie Sutter on October 9th at 2:00 pm.
