Very confusing leh, I registered with Avatar previously, is it the same but don't see my name in your list. Have PM you again. Thanks

Please note: If you have been confirmed under the Nikon list by Avatar, there is no need for you to re-submit your name to me.

Collection of Invitation Cards
For those of you who are confirmed, please go to Eastgear in Peninsula Plaza to collect the invitation cards.
Technically speaking, you do NOT need the invitation cards as your names have been pre-registered with Epson, but if it makes you feel less kiasi, you may want to collect a copy of the invitation.
The invitation card is also available in the current issue of Photoi thus its basically a generic card - thats why you do not technically need the card, and just trust us that your name has been pre-registered.

Gee, never thought that I would be able to get a placing...
Anyway, out of curiousity (and kiasi-ness) how do we ID ourselves?
EDIT: Received an email from Epson as well...

Registration was done with your real name - use that to ID yourself to Epson.

Back.... Kudos to Epson for organizing this event, and to Clubsnap for giving out free invitations out to us!
It was a perfect session for digital imaging retards like yours truly...
Anyway, I tried out the tips that John Cosgrove was presenting during his segment in Photoshop CS, but there's this portion on the "Colour" segment that I can't seem to get. Was wondering whether anyone could correct me.
White Balance adjustment using Curves
1) Image > Adjustments > Curves
2) Double-click on the white point dropper, a pop-up will appear.
3) Select a non-highlight white point (ie, the eyes)
4) Set the A/B channel to 0.
5) Click on "OK" (using "Tab" key)
Absolutely nothing happens when I try this out.
Any Photoshop guru can assist?
