Hi Everybody. I didn't expect for this to be a "No Blog" Monday, but I was up all night finishing up a project (more on this soon), and now I'm in a meeting, and everyone's staring at me because they're talking and my laptop is open and I'm typing. I'll be back tomorrow, cause I've got lots of news, and a pano from Monument Valley I found yesterday while looking for something else. Have a great "no Blog" Monday! :) -Scott Blogging, but not really
Sorry I didn't get this posted sooner (I've been in meetings all morning), but Adobe released Lightroom 1.2 a FREE maintenance (bug-fix) update, which also adds support for some new digital cameras (like the Canon EOS 40D, the Fuji FinePix IS-1, Olympus EVOLT E-510, and Panasonic DMC-FZ18 among others). You can download it here for Mac, or here for Windows. That's it---short and sweet. It's an update. It makes things better. Mmmmmm. Better. :-) Adobe also released an update for Camera Raw (bringing it to version 4.2), which add similar support for these new digital cameras. Here's the Mac link; here's the Windows link.
Hi everybody. It's Friday and time for a Photoshop News Fiesta (by the way, I have no idea what that means exactly, but it sure sounds good). Here we go: Wacom introduced a new Special Edition widescreen tablet last week at Photoshop World, (seen above) to celebrate 25 years of tableture (tableture? OK, 25 years in the biz). This new sleek 6x11" metallic black special edition tablet looks exceedingly cool in person (we had one to show off during our live taping of Photoshop User TV last week), and comes with some nice freebies thrown in, including a free Classic Pen, transparent overlay, and a pro accessory kit. They started shipping this week. The full scoop is over at a special microsite set-up by Wacom over at wacom.com/specialedition Wilhelm Research published a downloadable 8 page report on Epson's DURABrite Pigment inks and Epson photo…
Terry White, over at the "Adobe Creative Suite Podcast," video-taped the full Photoshop World opening keynote, and you can see not only Adobe's full keynote (including the sneak-peek at the online version of Photoshop, called "Photoshop Express,") and some very cool 3D plug-ins that extend the power of Photoshop, but the "Photoshop CS3 for iPhone" spoof that we created to introduce Adobe's VP Johnny L, (who's not only a really great guy, but an absolute first-class presenter and totally "not a suit." That's him pictured above during the keynote [photo by Terry White] ). You can watch the keynote right here. (Thanks to Terry for making this available).
Â We got our "Live from Photoshop World" episode of Photoshop User TV up online last night, and this episode (taped live on the Expo Floor of Photoshop World), is an all-Photoshop Tips episode, where Dave, Matt and I go back and forth sharing some of our favorite Photoshop tips. You can watch it online right here.
Â Epson America has just launched a very well-done site for pros using Epson's pro line of printing products. Besides being the home of some stunning photography, there are direct links to Epson drivers and support, links to their pro-quality archival papers, inks, a list of upcoming events, along with success stories, and info on their new line of wide format printers (I'm drooling over the 7880 myself). It's very well done and definitely worth bookmarking. Here's the link.
