Today I’ve got a couple of maintenance type issues, along with some some crisp-crunchy news, with just a hint of lightly sweetened wheat, soy and rice flakes.

Think Tank Free Bag Deal Link Has Changed
A friend contacted me yesterday to let me know that he was going to buy some Think Tank Photo gear, and that he wanted to make sure he used this blog’s Affiliate link, so the affiliate fee would go to ‘The Springs of Hope, Kenya Orphanage,’ but the link wasn’t working. I figured out why—the link has changed. Sorry ’bout that (somehow I missed the email). Here’s the direct link for the free bag deal.

Vol. 3 Video Review
I ran across this review of my book, “The Digital Photography, Volume 3″ and I thought it was particularly cool because rather than a written review (like usual) it’s a video review, with the reviewer sharing his thoughts live on camera (over at the Cherry 555 blog). You can check it out right here.

Dave Cross & RC Kick Off New Creative Suite Tour
Two of the industry’s best instructors, Dave Cross and RC Concepcion (shown above) have teamed up for a new one-day Adobe Creative Suite 4 Unleashed workshop that’s headed out this fall to:

  • Miami
  • Austin
  • St Louis
  • Kansas City

  • San Diego
  • Boston
  • Washington, DC.

This new fall tour (sponsored by Adobe Systems) features classes on all the new features of the Creative Suite 4, including Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4, InDesign CS4, Acrobat and Flash CS4. Along with covering brand-new features they’ll also be showing how to integrate the Creative Suite Applications and how to take things to the next level in Photoshop Extended.

The seminar is only $49 ($39 for NAPP Members) AND you get a FREE copy of Dave Cross’ DVD, Adobe CS4 Creative Suite Integration. (which normally sells for $69.99 by itself). For more details, or to sign up, click right here.

Tomorrow’s Special Guest Blogger is….
…a very talented photographer and teacher, and one really scary guy when it comes to wielding a tablet and wireless pen, Wacom’s own Wes Maggio.

I’ve known Wes for a number of years now (and many of you have met him in hands-on Wacom training sessions or their booth at Photoshop World, where he’s been a fixture for years), but I have no earthly idea what his topic is for tomorrow, so make sure you join me here so we can both check out Wes’ special guest blog (good to have you here, Wes!). :)

That’s it for this Tuesday
I hope you all have a beautiful day, with the sun shining, and blue skies, and….aw, who am I kidding? Just try and not kill anybody today. (kidding!). Have a great one!
