Chuck Uebele Photo Manipulation


Our own Chuck Uebele will be presenting some examples of photo manipulation that range from in camera, to analog darkroom processes, to digital imaging, with an emphasis on digital photo compositing. 

He is both a photographer and illustrator, and has been working in the photo industry for over 40 years.  For the past 30 plus years, Chuck worked as an industrial photographer in the aerospace industry – now retired. 

His work has been seen by several Presidents and has been in numerous congressional briefings.  He was on the board of directors of a Scientific and Technical Imaging group in Los Angeles.  Currently, Chuck is an Adobe Community Professional, who helps people with Adobe products – mainly Photoshop, and volunteers as a teaching assistant at many Adobe training conferences.

Every meeting showcases a Main Program and a Show and Tell (where each member may bring up to 5 images on any subject, whether to ask for some ideas on how to make them better or just to show us what you've been up to. At some meetings Field Trip images will be shown, featuring photos taken by our members at a recent outing.

Submissions For "Field Trip Shows" & "Show and Tell"

Digital images (JPGs only) must be submitted on a Flash Drive clearly marked with your name. Images must be in the sRGB color space and sized to at least 1024x768 pixels and no larger than 1800 pixels on the longest side of the image. Use your name as the first part of the file name. An example of naming your image files would be as follows: if your name is Mary Smith, then you would name your files: marysmith1.jpg, marysmith2.jpg, etc. File names for the Field Trip images should start with "FT": FTmarysmith1.jpg, FTmarysmith2.jpg 

For more assistance, see our tutorial on How to Prepare Digital Images for Projection.
