Does Artificial Intelligence make you feel stupid? Get smarter about the crazy new AI functionality in Lightroom Classic (v13.3) and Photoshop 2024 (v25.9). At its best, Artificial Intelligence works to improve and speed up editing techniques that in the past could be accomplished with mere mortal ingenuity and elbow grease. Generative Remove, Point Color, and Lens Blur in Lightroom may be all the voodoo you need, but Photoshop’s Remove Tool, Generative Expand and Fill, and Backscatter Exterminator plug-in can work real magic with your underwater photos. Learn how to channel AI powers for good and of course for a little bit of evil too!

Erin Quigley is an Adobe ACE certified expert specializing in customized workflows and editing strategies using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. She is an award-winning underwater photographer and editor, and creator of GoAskErin.com, which provides one-on-one instruction, custom video tutorials, and post-production resources specifically developed for underwater shooters. Along with one-on-one consulting, Erin writes the Imaging Techniques column for Scuba Diving magazine, leads trips, and teaches workshops worldwide. She is a member of the Boston Sea Rovers and the Women Divers Hall of Fame.

Erin began her career as the resident costume designer for Chicago’s famed Steppenwolf Theatre Company, during which time she earned two Tony Award nominations for her work on Broadway. In the ensuing years, she returned to her hometown of Los Angeles and designed the television sitcom “Roseanne”, along with many other stage, television, and film projects, eventually working as a producer and development executive in collaboration with 20th Century Fox and Warner Brothers Television.

Concurrent with her work in television and film, Erin became an avid scuba diver and underwater photographer. She immersed herself not only in the art of underwater photography, but also in the art of digital imaging and post-production. She left the entertainment world to study at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, where her passion for learning new technologies evolved into a passion for teaching underwater photographers how to maximize the potential of their images via post-production.

Erin is motivated by her strong belief that exceptional imaging inspires awareness and stewardship of our fragile marine environment.
