There are several new tutorials/classes available on the Education page. On Dec. 28 and on Dec. 17 I posted videos from PhotoPills about what to shoot in 2023 and shooting lighthouse and stars at night. They both look like good tutorials and will not only give you ideas for the coming year but if you are into night shooting it may be just the ticket for you. It can be found here. Scroll down to the second group of tutorials and it will be the top one. Also, Blake Rudis of f64 Academy has a new tutorial about using the color curves inside the curves adjustment. It is quite comprehensive and worth looking at. I personally don't think this is for Photoshop beginning users, but if you have used curves to adjust your images, I think you can handle it. The tutorial is quite comprehensive and explains the color theory behind adjusting color quite well.
Additionally Matt Kloskowski has published templates for creating calendars for 2023. These free templates are available here. And he includes a tutorial video as well.
The Education Chair updates online classes as they become available.
