Monday News Quickies from the Photoshop Insider
Happy Monday everybody!
- Sunday Was Super!
OK, so this first thing has nothing to do Photoshop, but I’ve got to share it; a good friend of mine hooked me, and my best buddy Dave Moser up with Super Bowl Tickets. Not just Super Bowl tickets; but Club Seats on the 45 yard line!!!! (Believe me; I know I’m an incredibly lucky guy). It was an amazing night (with perfect weather for football—just beautiful!), and even though my team lost, it was still a blast!!! (Dave took the shot above with my iPhone). As much fun as the game was, what was really amazing to see was how they put that huge stage, video wall, massive audio system, and lighting together for that Springsteen halftime show. Incredible!!! It was a sea of people really hustling, and seeing the halftime show live is a whole different experience! OK, now for some real news.
- New Dates for My Lightroom Live Tour
I’m coming to Denver and Portland, Oregon with my Lightroom 2 Live Tour at the end of April. I still have to check on the exact dates, but I think Denver’s on the 29th, and Portland’s on May 1st, but I’m not 100% on the exact dates (I’m not sure they’ve posted them yet). Anyway, I’m also launching a new Photoshop Tour, which will kick off in Washington, DC, in May (more details to come about that, too). Either way, we’ll post all the dates for our upcoming Kelby Training Live events later this week, so keep an eye out (here’s the link for now).
- How to Clean Your Camera’s Sensor
Moose Peterson has done a really great two-part video series on how to clean your camera’s sensor, and it is just fantastic. He really did a kick-butt job with this, so make sure you check it out over at Moose’s News Blog (here’s that link).
- Only 18 More Days to Save $100
There are just a couple of weeks or so left to take advantage of the $100 off Early sign-up registration for Photoshop World (Hey, a hundred bucks means more than ever now, eh?). Here’s where to sign up now.
- Learning CS4′s Camera Raw
Just a quick update: I finished up my CS4 Camera Raw online course this weekend, and although it’s 3 hours and 15 minutes long, I honestly think it’s one of the best online classes or DVDs I’ve ever done. I tried something new in how I’m teaching it, and it turned out even better than I had hoped. I’m taping a video clip about it this week, so when it’s done I’ll run it here on the blog, but I just wanted to give you a “heads up” that will have it up live at Kelby Training Online very soon. Thanks to everyone who suggested the idea for this course. I’m psyched!
That’s it for today, folks. I hope you have a really great Monday!
