    I've had lots of emails and posts about when I'm going to release the CS3 version of my "Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers." Well, I'm delighted to let you know that I'm just wrapping up the latest edition and the book should be available in late June. I made an awful lot of changes since the last edition (for CS2), with completely "rewritten from the ground up" chapters on The CS3 Bridge, Camera Raw 4.0, Color Correction, and printing & color management. I guess what surprised me the most was how many new techniques I've learned since the CS2 version of the book came out over two years ago. So, I not only added in the new features of CS3, I also updated a lot of the existing techniques with new settings or faster, better, easier or more effective ways to pull them…

    I'm excited to introduce you to the “new kid in town,” and the latest addition to NAPP’s in-house team of Photoshop gurus, Rafael Concepcion (he prefers to go by just “RC”). We first met RC a couple of years ago at Photoshop World Miami during a preconference workshop based on the TV Show “So you think you can dance?” called “So you think you can teach Photoshop?” This pre-con was designed for Photoshop instructors, and besides teaching NAPP criteria for becoming a Photoshop World instructor, each student would give a 10-minute presentation in front of the class and each session would be critiqued by the instructors (Matt, Dave, and myself). Then, at the end of the day the class would choose the best instructor, and that instructor would then get to teach a 30-minute session in the NAPP theater on the Expo floor. Well,…

    Before we get into the main news, at the absolute insistence of my wife I have to include this first: >> Yesterday my publisher (Peachpit Press and Pearson Education), announced that for the third straight year I am #1 bestselling author of computer and technology books across all categories (according to Nielson Bookscan data for the calendar year 2006). You can read the full press release here (which will make my wife very happy). Now, onto the news: Panos FX has released "Analysis" another way cool set of 10 Photoshop Special Effects Actions (my hats off to Greece-based Photoshop expert Panos Efstathiadis, who continues to amaze me with the incredible stuff he comes up with). Here's how he describes his latest set: "They break down an image into a number of elements such as book pages, individual photos, filmstrips, stripes, and more. At the…

    What an amazing time I had yesterday at my Boston Lightroom Seminar (photos by Terry White, the top one taken during the first live shoot that kicks off the day--scroll down ot the next post to see the shot I was taking). The people of Boston were just absolutely great (what a fantastic crowd to present to), and I met so many wonderful photographers who are really excited about Lightroom. Even more so after Adobe Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty gave the sold-out crowd of nearly 500 the first public look at the cool new features included in the Lightroom version 1.1 upgrade (which is coming soon), which included improved sharpening and noise reduction as well as improved file mobility. Also, Tom was gracious enough to field one-on-one questions all day long (as did Terry White from Adobe, who was there helping out as…

    Here's one of the shots taken during the live shoot shown in the previous post, of our model Debbie Stephenson (who is actually our Seminar Team Leader, so she works double-duty during the seminar). I lit it with just one light; a Westcott TD-5 SyderLite positioned in front and to my right.

    If you've already signed up for the now sold-out Boston stop of my "Lightroom Live!" tour, (it's this coming Monday at the Hynes Convention Center), I've got a special treat for you, as Adobe's Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty will be there helping field questions, and he just might give attendees a sneak peek at.....well...I guess you'll just have to be there. I'm really honored to have Tom at the event (and thankful to have his help, too!) ;-) I'll post some photos from the seminar on Monday, and give you the scoop on what Tom showed the crowd. Also, if you read this blog, make sure you come up and say "hi" when you're at the seminar. See you there! P.S. The next stop on my tour is Atlanta on June 1st.
