Howdy, folks. Ready for a fun coupla weeks? Good – me, too!

Today I’m launching a new 10-part series called “10 Things You Didn’t Realize (or forgot) Were in Photoshop” and we’re kicking it off today with #1: a short video on a little known, yet no less awesome tool called “The Color Replacement Tool.” (BTW: if you just said to yourself, “The Color Replacement Tool!? What the heck is that?” well, you’re going to feel right at home in this new series).  Here we go!

Each year, we have loads of teachers who come to Photoshop World, and even teachers who bring groups of students to the event, but here’s an opportunity for both:  if you’re an educator and you have a star student that you think could really benefit from attending this summer’s Photoshop World 2016 Conference in Las Vegas (July 19-21st), you can submit them for one of the twenty-five student full-conference pass scholarships we award each year. Here’s the details:

The Photoshop World Student Scholarship Program has been created to give promising students the opportunity to expand their Photoshop, graphic design, photography and creative skills by attending the Photoshop World Conference, a three-day conference offering invaluable training sessions led by the world’s leading experts in the creative industry.

Each year, KelbyOne awards scholarships to talented students from across the country. The recipients receive free full conference admission, as well as a one-year membership to KelbyOne (which includes a digital subscription to Photoshop User magazine). The scholarship is valued at $998.

The scholarships are awarded to 25 students based on a direct recommendation from their teacher. We’re looking to award these scholarships to the most deserving students based on talent, potential and passion and if you would like to nominate one of your best and brightest for a scholarship, please share a few words (below) about why the student you are nominating would make an excellent choice as a scholarship recipient. 

Applications are being accepted up to June 6th, 2016. If you submit an application prior to June 6th and are chosen, you will be notified by June 10th. If you do not hear from us by the 10th, please try again next year for Photoshop World Conference 2017.

Here’s a link to the submission form.

New Panel Discussion For Students
This year, for the first time ever, we have a special panel just for students about getting photography work after graduation, and the panel has some of the best working pros in the business (open to all registered students at the conference).

That’s it from here in sunny Florida today. Looking forward to meeting a bunch of you at my seminar in San Diego this Thursday – hope I’ll see you there!

Best,

Happy Friday, everybody! I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to write about today, until I saw this tweet yesterday, and then I knew I had to do a short video (below), which is part studio technique and part retouching in Photoshop (the Photoshop part is really simple. Heck, the studio technique is really simple. It’s all simple — you just have to remember to do it during the shoot or you may not have much of a prayer afterward.

Hope you found that helpful.

Hey, are you coming to see me next week in San Diego?
I hope you are – I’m there teaching my new seminar. Come out and spend the day with me. :)

Have a great weekend,

-Scott

Don’t worry — if you’re not a KelbyOne member, you can take the 10-day Free Trial and join us tomorrow live for this groundbreaking Webcast. Kristi is awesome (KelbyOne members LOVE her current class on high-end skin retouching), and she’s here taping some new online classes. Tomorrow, I’m excited to be joining her as we talk about the “Unspoken Rules of Retouching” and I think you’ll find this really helpful.

This isn’t one big tutorial — this is a discussion where we talk about the stuff we don’t get to talk about during a tutorial. Of course, we’re taking your questions live, and looking at some real world retouching scenarios and we can’t wait to share all of this with you tomorrow. Here’s the details:

Who: Kristina Sherk and yours truly
What: Live Webcast on the “Unspoken Rules of Retouching” and the state of the retouching industry
Where: http://kelbyone.com/webcast
When: 1:00 pm EDT
Why: We love giving our members a creative advantage

Hope you can join us tomorrow (if you can’t be there for the Live Webcast, we’ll rebroadcast it in its entirety exclusively for KelbyOne members).

Look forward to seeing you then!

Best,

-Scott

Hey gang – this quick little video (below) is about an awesome portfolio feature that already comes with your Adobe Creative Cloud subscription (even with the $9.99 a month photographers bundle). It’s called “Adobe Portfolio” and it’s so easy to use that you can have your own custom online portfolio up and running in about 10 minutes without any additional fees (or any web programming experience whatsoever – anybody can do this easily). Check out the video below to see how this works:

Hope you found that helpful — it’s one of those things that Adobe kind of snuck in there and it really adds value to their subscription (especially if you’re just paying the $9.99 a month, because you can pay more than that for a portfolio alone).

Hope that starts your Monday off right. :)

Best,

-Scott

P.S. In 10-days I’ll be in San Diego with my new seminar (on Thursday, May 12th) – hope you can come by. Also, a big shout out to all the photographers in Seattle & Portland who came out to my seminars there last week. Really enjoyed getting to meet so many nice folks. Thanks for making me feel at home so far from home :)

Well, at least it is on the KelbyOne Facebook page, where each Friday, we post a quick photography, Lightroom or Photoshop tip (either from me, or one from some of our awesome instructors), and they’re all just 1-minute each (or less). Well, at least thats’s the goal.

If you missed any from the previous few Fridays, you can check ’em out on the KelbyOne YouTube page (ya know, you should subscribe to our YouTube page).

Greetings from Portland, Oregon
I’ve spent the past few days out in Oregon taping some classes on Essential Techniques for Landscape photographers, and Essential Post-Processing techniques for Landscape photographers, and we just wrapped up today, and then we drove to Portland last night for my seminar here today (hope I’ll get to meet you in person here today).

Yesterday Brad posted about my new class on simple Fashion lighting, but we didn’t have the class trailer. Now we do, and it’s right there above (it’s just a minute, so I hope you’ll check it out).

OK, that’s it from here in chilly Portland. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Best,

-Scott

P.S. Did you see the awesome team of instructors we have lined up for the Lightroom training tracks at the Photoshop World 2016 conference this summer in Vegas? Check ’em out below.
