It’s been two years since the last major update to my bestselling Photoshop book, and since then, lots has changed — and not just new features in Photoshop CC (and there are plenty of them), but with how I do my Photoshop workflow today, so I went back and reworked the structure and design of the book to reflect how photographers are working today.

I take an update to this book very seriously, as it’s used in colleges and universities all over the world (it’s translated into many different languages) as their classroom text and curriculum. While it took longer than anticipated, it has to be right, and that’s why I am so excited about this new edition – I think it’s the best, most useful version of the book yet.

Here’s the trailer where I explain the book:

Amazon says it will be in stock on Dec. 22nd, but my sources are telling me it will actually be shipping by the end of next week (if not sooner), so if you want to get your copy first, now’s the time to order it.

Here’s the link to preorder it on Amazon

Thanks for letting me share this with you, and if you have any friends that would find a book like this helpful in their Photoshop journey, I hope you’ll share this post with them. :)

Have a great Monday and we’ll catch ya back here tomorrow!

Best,

My guest this week on “The Grid” was the most awesome dog photographer anywhere, Kaylee Greer (who, by the way, has the cover shot on the new National Geographic magazine “Nat Geo Wild“). On the episode (you can watch it above), she answers viewer’s questions; shares her techniques for dealing with hard to photograph dogs (and tougher to deal with dog owners), and well…she was just awesome. You will love it and learn a lot (she shares some great tricks, too!).

Kaylee is here at our studio filming another online course for KelbyOne that should be released in about four to six weeks. Her first class was such a huge hit, and she shared everything from lighting to post processing, but she’s got so much more to share, so we were out on location with her today filming her next class and we’re super psyched to be bringing more Kaylee your way.

Hope you all have a great weekend, and we’ll see you back here on Monday (well, I sure hope). :)

Best,

Howdy everybody. A few quick things to share with you (including a really slick Lightroom trick), but before we get to that stuff, just wanted to mention that in case you didn’t get to take advantage of our Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, we’ve extended the deal for 24-hours. You have ’till midnight tonight and then they’re gone. Here’s the link to take advantage of our best prices of the year.

(Note: it’s $50.oo off a KelbyOne one year membership and $300 off a Photoshop World 2017 Full Conference pass).

OK, onto my tip: I did this tip on Friday over at my other blog (lightroomkillertips.com), and I wanted to share it with you all here. It’s a quick, easy trick for creating a shallow depth-of-field effect right within Lightroom. It looks pretty good, and it’s super simple, and I even tossed in a couple of extra Lightroom tips, too! (check it out below):

Tomorrow it’s gonna be a GOOOOOD episode of “The Grid”
Dog photographer extraordinaire, wonderful educator, and just an absolutely delightful person all around, Kaylee Greer, is my guest tomorrow on “The Grid” (my weekly talkshow for photographers) at 4pm ET. Hope you can join us.

Hope you all have a great Tuesday (that’s a thing, right?).

Best,

Today in the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving; a national holiday where we give thanks for the many blessings we enjoy (and I truly feel like the most blessed guy on earth).

Traditionally this is a day where families come together to eat a Thanksgiving turkey feast, and then we watch the Cowboys lose to the Redskins. It’s just about a perfect day. Our offices are closed today for Thanksgiving, but I’ll be back here tomorrow with some insane deals on all our stuff in honor of the biggest shopping day of the year (known as Black Friday).

In the meantime, please enjoy the stock image above (nothing brings the warmth, togetherness, and joy of Thanksgiving together like a stock image with 3D-Rendered pumkins).

In all seriousness, here’s wishing you and your family a joyous, happy, and yummy Thanksgiving.

All my best,

-Scott
