Cs5book1

I just got word that Amazon.com has my brand new book: “The Photoshop CS5 Book for Digital Photographers” in stock now—-ready to ship (here’s the link).

Also, Barnes & Noble.com will have it soon as well, and it’s available for pre-order on their site.

I just got my first copy off press this week, which is really exciting for an author, and I hope you guys will have a copy soon, too!

My bestselling Book/DVD combo: Photo Recipes Live: Behind the Scenes Lighting Techniques, is now available as both an iPad and iPhone App from the iTunes Store.

The cool thing is: the App is only $9.95, and includes all the same videos and content. One of the reviewers on iTunes wrote this about the App:

“His technique of showing the shot, and then breaking it down how he did it, is very productive. The narrative is fun, not dry. $10 for pro instruction on lighting is a deal, the price of some digital photography magazines.”

Anyway, if you’d like to check it out, you can find it right here. Thanks to my Publisher, Peachpit Press who developed the App and got it out there. They really did a great job with it, and I’m super psyched to have it available both as a App, and for such an affordable price.

When I announced my new Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers (shown above), I listed where you could pre-order the book, but at that time Amazon.com didn’t have it available yet, so I wanted to let you guys know that not only is it available now for pre-order, but I expect to have the first copies any day now (it’s just about off press, so it won’t be long now).

Here’s the link to preorder yours today from Amazon.com (Note: if you didn’t get the scoop on the new book, I did a quick video all about what’s different in this new major update to the book. Here’s the link to that video).

I’m happy to announce that my “Lightroom 3 book for Digital Photographers” is already on press, and should be in bookstores very soon, but one of the things people ask most is “What’s different in your new book, from the old Lightroom 2 book?” (which is the world’s #1 bestselling book on Lightroom).

Of course, I included all the new important Lightroom 3 features in the major update of the book, but I also added some other really important things to take the new version of this book to a whole new level. I did a short video (below) with all the new stuff, and I hope you’ll take just a moment and check it out.

You can pre-order the book, and be among the first to get yours, at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, KelbyTraining.com, or wherever cool Lightroom books are sold.

I snapped the shot above with my iPhone after a box of foreign translations of my books came in to our offices a few weeks back, and I just ran across it while looking through my Camera Roll (that’s what it’s called on an iPhone anyway).

I get such a kick out of seeing how they’ve laid out these translated versions, because in most cases the size is different (often times they’re hard cover as well), and they often completely redesign in insides and in particular the front cover to suit their market (I complain about them redoing the cover, but my publisher swears that each market feels like they know the kind of cover that appeals to their demographic, so I let it go, but it still kind of drives me crazy).

What’s in the Stack
Taking a quick look at the stack, I can see various versions of my Digital Photography book series, my iPhone book (co-authored with Terry White) gets translated a lot; I see my Mac OS X Leopard books in there, and my Lightroom 2 book, and a couple of copies of my Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks books are in there as well. I see Russian, Korean, German, Turkish, and my first Photoshop book translated into Japanese. (NOTE: If by looking at the spine of the book you recognize any of the languages here, let me know in a comment).

Anyway, I just want to thank all of you who buy these translated copies of my book, and help my books reach a wider audience. I get emails from all over the world each week (sometimes telling me about the quality of the translations, which they say is usually very good, but I have gotten a few that let me know that the people of their country don’t get my jokes. I don’t feel so bad. People here don’t get my jokes either). :)
