Hi gang! Hope everybody had a great weekend. Here’s what up this week:

  • Matt Kloskowski’s “Adobe ACE Boot Camp” (which he has taught live as a pre-conference workshop at Photoshop World), is now available as an online class over at KelbyTraining.com. The class is designed to get you prepared to pass the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) test, and just like in his live workshop, Matt does a phemoninal job of getting you prepped to take the test (Matt and Dave Cross worked directly with Adobe in preparing their pre-conference workshop, and it was a HUGE hit at the conference). Click here for more details.
  • Want to see some really inspirational photography? Check out this year’s winners of National Geographic’s 19th annual “World in Focus” photo competition. Here’s the link.
  • I’m over at PPA’s Imaging USA at the Tampa convention center today, doing a couple of sessions in the KelbyTraining.com booth on the Expo Floor. I’ve got sessions at 1:00 and 3:00 pm today, and Matt, Dave, Corey and RC will all be doing training sessions in the booth, too. If you’re there, make sure you stop by and say “hi.”
  • Want a quick chuckle? Check out this “For Better/For Worse” comic strip (click here), for another example of how Photoshop has become a part of our culture. Thanks to Les Holz for sending this our way.
  • If you’re into Final Cut Pro (The hottest video editing app today), check out our buddy Richard Harrington’s newly launched “FinalCutHelp.com” site. His site is packed with great posts, tips, and video techniques, and if you’re into FCP, this is going to be a must-stop every day. Rich is the perfect guy for a site like this, because he knows Final Cut Pro at a scary level (which is just one reason he’s been a fixture at Photoshop World’s video track for years), and he’s one of the best, most engaging and talented trainers out there (which is why he’s already working on a number of training classes for us at KelbyTraining.com). Here’s the link to FinalCutHelp.com

That’s it for today, gang. Hope I’ll get to shake hands with you at Imaging USA today. Have a great Monday! :)
