    I've talked about Alltop.com before (which is basically a site that does a very clever job of gathering blogs about specific topics and it puts them all on one handy page, but that's just part of the story). They call it, an "online magazine rack" that they update every hour. Anyway, just recently, they introduced a feature called "MyAlltop" where you can set up your own Alltop page, with your own favorite blogs on it. So, I put one together with blogs about Photoshop, Photography, the Mac, and other stuff I check each day, and of all the things like this I've tried (various RSS readers, blog aggregators, Google-this, Yahoo-that, etc.), this is the quickest to use and easiest to set up. One of my favorite features of Alltop is that you can move your cursor over a headline and it shows you the…

    Hi folks. Before we get started you can see that standing in for "Embarrassing Photo Thursday" is "Embarrassing Photo Friday." The shot above was taken in Corfu, Greece (an island near the coast of Albania) when I was 19-years-old, playing in a funk band called "Loose Change," (You can see the "Loose Change" t-shirt under my way cool sweat jacket that we all wore back then for no apparent reason). I spent the summer of 1980 playing with Loose Change at an outdoor rooftop lounge atop the Regency Hotel in Corfu (not a bad gig for a teenager). Pictured left to right are Loose Change's bass player Alan Carmen, lead vocalist Marshall Gillon, and yours truly (on keyboards). But before we get started..... The award for most supportive Guest Blogger ever has to go to my buddy, sports photographer Mike Olivella, who spent most…

    After my review here on the blog of the Lucis Pro 6 plug-in (link), I had a number of readers asking if I had tried the Topaz Adjust plug-in, as they felt it gave a similar high-contrast look for a fraction of Lucis Pro's nearly $600 price tag (Topaz Adjust sells for $49). So, I downloaded the Topaz Adjust Photoshop plug-in a few months ago and have been using it when I got the right type of image to edit, and I wanted to share my thoughts on the plug-in and give some examples. DISCLAIMER: If you hate this high-contrast, under saturated, over-sharpened looking effect, please just skip this post altogether. Initial Thoughts When I first started using Topaz Adjust, it was still on version 2 and while I liked the effects themselves, the interface was....well....it needed some work. Luckily, the latest version (version…

    >> Dead MacBook Crisis: Day 14 Howdy folks! That's right, I'm still battling with the massive hard drive crash I had the day before my Lightroom Tour in Denver last month, but after jumping through a few hoops (and with some help from Apple), I believe that by the time you read this my MacBook Pro will have been fully restored from my Time Capsule backup, and my work life will be somewhat back in order. There are half a dozen reasons why this restoration took so long, most of them are my fault, but I'm just glad it appears to be behind me (for the most part), and I can get back to full speed. >> The Review That Could Have Been I'm still working off a stripped machine for this post, so I don't have my review of the Topaz Adjust plug-in…

    Hi Everybody! It's a beautiful Monday and I'm back and totally refreshed thanks to a few days off doing nothing but playing golf with my big brother Jeff (that's him shown above). We headed out to the West Coast last Thursday for a long golf weekend (to celebrate his 60th Birthday), and we had such a great, relaxing, fun-filled time. I took a lot of photos; none of which are worth a darn, because we had gray foggy weather every single sunrise and sunset, but luckily during the golf itself---it was beautiful (plus, I probably had my best round ever), so it was about as much fun as two golf-loving brothers can have. Now I'm ready to get back to work! Thanks For Your Ideas First, a big thanks to everybody who shared your thoughts about my "Down & Dirty Dilemma" on Friday. It…
