Special Bonus Episode of Photoshop TV

“The Photoshop Guys” take you live On Location to Adobe’s CS3 Launch Event in New York City (held earlier this week), in a special bonus episode of Photoshop TV. It features a look at the sights and sounds of this amazing event, plus we were honored to have one-one-one interviews with Adobe’s CEO Bruce Chizen, and Adobe’s VP of their Creative Solutions Business Unit, John Loiacono (who’s also the featured keynote speaker at Photoshop World Boston next week!). You can watch this episode right now online at

O'ReillyIf you were thinking of taking us up on that offer of a FREE Expo-only pass at Photoshop World in Boston next Thursday, here’s another reason to come: O’Reilly Publishing is hosting a series of free Photoshop sessions at their booth on the show floor, featuring some of the leading Photoshop authors, including Photoshop Hall of Famers Deke McClelland, Katrine Eismann, and Eddie Tapp, along with authors Derek Story, and Peter Krogh. You can find O’Reilly’s class schedule by clicking here, and you can get your FREE Expo pass at the Photoshop World Web site.

My new book on Adobe LightroomHere’s the news (or at least, the news I know about).

⢠Debbie Grossman over at Popular Photography magazine posted her review of Photoshop CS3, along with her top five reasons to upgrade. Click here to read it online.

⢠Derek Story has a helpful article on using Photo Rescue to recover erased photos from a memory card (Here’s the link).

⢠Want a free lens hood for your digital camera lenses? Well, this is the next best thing (it’s free, and it’s a lens hood, but….). Well, just check it out.

⢠Got a minute to watch something really cute? It’s a really clever animation (sent my way by Julie, our Photoshop World conference director), but I don’t want to spoil it by telling what it is, other than I promise it will make you smile). Then click right here

⢠My new book on Adobe Lightroom (The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers—shown above) is off press and will be making its debut next week at Photoshop World, where we’ll have copies for sale in the official bookstore. The book will be showing up in bookstores any day now, and if you’ve preordered your copy, you’ll be among the first to get yours. If you haven’t ordered yours (and I hope you will), click right here.

⢠Adobe has posted the latest edition of their cool PDF-based magazine called “Adobe Edge” and you can download it free from their site.

⢠Want some really cool free Photoshop Brushes? These are brushes that look like water stains (like you left a cold drink on a newspaper or fine wood table). They’re cooler than it sounds, and….we…. they’re free! Check ’em out by following this link.

⢠If you’re a photographer and you’re already signed up for Photoshop World next week, you’ll want to snag one of the remaining spots for the Lightroom hands-on pre-conference workshop, held on Tuesday, April 3rd. It’s called “Photoshop Soup2Nuts” and it features a who’s who of Lightroom development, including Thomas Knoll (the man who wrote Photoshop and Camera Raw), plus Mark Hamburg (the “Father of Lightroom”), plus Jeff Schewe, Andrew “The Digital Dog” Rodney, and Adobe’s Pro-photo evangelist George Jardine, among others. To reserve your spot, call 813-433-5005.

{cs3launch} Our Photo Gallery From Adobe's CS3 Launch Event In New York City

The Photoshop Guys were in New York yesterday at Adobe’s CS3 Launch Event, taping a special bonus episode of Photoshop TV (which is set to air tomorrow) from the launch event, complete with one-one-one interviews with Adobe’s CEO Bruce Chizen and an interview with Adobe’s Senior VP of Creative Solutions Business Unit, John Loiacono (who’ll be doing the Photoshop World keynote next week), among others. But in the meantime, I posted a flickr gallery where you can check out these photos from the event (taken by our man Matt Kloskowski).

BH Photo The Adobe event isn’t starting until 3:00 pm today, and it’s 8:53 am and we’re in NYC, so it’s time to go to B&H Photo’s Superstore!!! We brought a video camera with us, so if there’s something you’d like to see us do as an “On Scene” report from B&H, let me know and we’ll try to shoot it for Photoshop TV.Here’s some other news:
