Rapid Group is holding the next round of its popular free photography and design workshops in July.

The events are designed specifically for anyone in creative imaging production, so it's good for photographers, graphic designers, ad agencies or anyone producing high quality images for printing.

Attendees can expect a full free day of in-depth product seminars. They will meet experts from leading manufacturers in the space: Adobe, Apple, Fuji-Film, Extensis, Sony, The Colour Collective, HP and Epson.

Key seminars include an Apple UK overview of its latest developments: Xserve, Xserve RAID and Mac OS X 10.3 Server. Also expect an introduction to the productivity benefits of Extensis Portfolio 7, the latest version of the digital asset management software.

Photoshop CS, camera RAW files, image retouch and manipulation, advanced imaging techniques, InDesign CS and more features will also be covered. The day ends with a tips and tricks session offering advice and tips for using Adobe CS.

A break-out area will feature the latest imaging products on display to allow hands-on experience of a digital workflow. See the latest cameras, Power Mac G5s running Mac OS X 10.3, Wacom tablets and the latest print solutions from EPSON and HP. See sample prints from these quality printers – if you want to see one of your own files printed out, bring along a CD and HP will print it for you during the day.

The travelling event visits London's Cafe Royal at 68 Regent Street on July 1. It hits Bracknell – Grange Bracknell Hotel, Charles Square, Berkshire July 6 and travels north to Birmingham on July 8. (The latter date is at Edgbaston Cricket Ground).
