Grassroots - The next step!

All of the fine editing has now been done and the finished product has now been sent to VDC Group for replication. We now have a nervous wait for it's completion, during which time we will be planning the next step...... You can have the best product in the world but if no one knows about it then it won't sell.

We are now in the middle of figuring out the best marketing plan for ALL 3 products, all of which we think are fantastic. All four of us have a number of idea's that may produce results but as always, until we try them them we will never know. Will put some of those plans into action over the next few weeks and will let you all know how we get on.

Everyday Digital Photography - Released.

5 months in the making, with 4 trips out filming, many tough sessions in the Woodcote studio creating the Adobe Photoshop Elements lessons and with a lovely sunny session at Witenham Clumps, our 2nd DVD entitled simply Everyday Digital Photography was released nationwide on Tuesday 16th June 2009.

It`s a great product, designed again for the novice upwards, it takes the viewer on a journey from selecting a compact digital camera and extras, onto taking great photos using simply techniques. From there, the main body of the DVD is using your computer as a photo gallery and creative workhorse. Watch how to transfer photos, create a well structured media library with tagging, cropping, adjusting brightness/exposure/luminance, red eye reduction plus more. We then move onto restoring old damaged photos and managing your memory cards and media library.

What good is a cracking photo if you can`t show it off ? That`s what we thought, so there`s extensive lessons on how to create an online Photo Gallery and share to your mates, how to print out photos and gifts, and how about create an online slide show video for uploading to YouTube. This is all on the 1st DVD, there`s so much more I couldn`t possibly keep your attention that long!!

Bonus time, there`s a 2nd DVD. Adobe Photoshop Elements and Google`s Picasa. A great place to get started with both programs, and we show you functionality from basic up to intermediate stages in easy to follow lessons.

All this on easy to navigate menu systems. We loved our 1st DVD Everyday Home Computing, we are even more pleased with this and already we`ve had really good feedback.
