New Photoshop CC Features and Cool New Lighting Stuff
While out was out in Chicago (Brrrrrr!), RC and the gang had a great show on “The Grid, deoming the just released new features added to Photoshop CC, and we had Brandon from Westcott on to talk about some cool lighting gear. The whole show is right above.

seven7A big shoutout and thanks to for not only naming KelbyOne as one of their “7 Awesome Sites for Learning How to Use Photoshop” but for writing:

“If you’re looking for one Photoshop-centric subscription, KelbyOne should be it.”

We’re excited and honored and doing a major happy dance. Their post is found right here. 



Chicago Today — Tampa on Monday
Today I’m teaching my “Shoot Like a Pro: Part 2 (Reloaded)” seminar in Chicago, and on Monday I’ll be on my home turf with my last seminar for the year — I hope I’ll see you in one or the other (it’s not to late to get tickets for my Tampa seminar).

Hope you have a great weekend (Go Bucs!), and we’ll see you back here on Monday.



When I was up in New York for Photo Plus Expo, one morning I got a chance to do a shoot at the incredible Morgan Library and Museum an hour before they open the doors to the public. I usually share stuff like this on storytelling site “” but this time I used the just introduced Web-editing feature of “Adobe Slate.”

Here’s the link to my shots (including behind-the-scenes shots and camera settings):



Hey everyone, RC here reporting from Adobe MAX in Los Angeles California. Over 7000 people are in attendance here to check out what’s new from the world of Adobe – and they are not disappointing over here.

For those who were not able to make it to Los Angeles, Adobe streamed the keynote live for all to see – a full 2+ hours. There were a slew of updates that were posted so let me share with you a couple of the ones that really stood out to me.


In the Photoshop space for Mobile – Adobe has merged the powers of their current apps Adobe Brush, Adobe Shape, Adobe Color and Adobe Hue into one app called Adobe Capture CC. Using the camera, you can create shapes and color themes and use them as jump points into your creative projects. I could totally see this being useful in one app.


Following the grouping of powerful components together into apps, we see now Photoshop Fix – a new program that brings together great features like Liquify, smoothing, and content aware healing into one application.


I think Fix will go over very well in a roundtrip scenario with Lightroom for the tablet and phone. Both of these apps got a new release as well. In addition to including Dehaze, you can now use the Targeted Adjustment Tool to make selective changes in color or make changes in black and white. Adobe has even included a camera inside of the app which i thought was another solid add.

I think this is a great move by Adobe here. There are a lot of people using phones and tablets – individuals that could totally benefit from powerful apps on their computers. By offering their apps on mobile devices for free- you can get a bunch of people interested in the Adobe ecosystem, and make them more willing to become members of the Creative Cloud. Big props to them here for that.


The photos that you have on the mobile app can be sorted by date, and can be sent over to Adobe Premiere Clip – a program designed to make videos. Now, you have a picture to slideshow workflow right from within your phone.


The Lightroom Desktop did get two updates as well. First – the import process has been improved, giving you a multi screen view helping you select pictures from your devices and place them into the areas that you need them. You’ll also get access to Dehaze on an adjustment brush – a welcome addition since Dehaze was just a global adjustment previously. Very helpful. Make sure you check out the Lightroom Killer Tips website soon as we start playing around with these new additions.


The Adobe Stock service will now add videos to the list of assets that you can use in your projects. You’ll also have the option to browse for the collateral you’ll need right from inside of the Creative Cloud Libraries of Dreamweaver CC, Muse CC, and Flash CC (though they were already available in places like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign)


The other big thing for me was the introduction of Adobe Portfolio. This tool appears to have some underpinnings in Bechance and aims to let creatives set up their portfolios with little ease. I could see this trying to go toe to toe with the likes of Squarespace but time will tell. As soon as I get into the program i’ll go ahead and kick the tires on it.

There are plenty of things to see here in Los Angeles. With Corey Barker and Pete Collins also out here, We’ll keep our eyes peeled for things that we can share with all of you. If you want to check out a full list of all of the things that were released, you can see the full press release here!

Have a great morning!
