    THE NEW PHOTOSHOP CS4 DOWN & DIRTY TRICKS COVER UNVEILING! OK, this is the official unveiling of the completely new cover for my Photoshop CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks books (shown above), created by my wonderfully talented in-house book designer Jessica Maldonado. This new cover came about after I did a post last month about finishing up my writing on the book, and a number of you mentioned that the old cover looked pretty dated (we had just updated the old CS2 cover with new colors and a slight modification to the type). We all agreed that it did look dated, and so Jess started from scratch and created the entirely new cover you see above (which we at NAPP HQ all love, so be nice to Jess). Thanks Jessica for all your hard work on this total redesign! NOTE: Although the book is…

    After Joe's release of what became the huge hit of 2009, his landmark book, "The Moment It Clicks," everybody was asking for more Joe, and specifically "when's he gonna do a book on small flashes?" Well, the wait it just about over! On Monday, Joe announced on his blog that he has finished all the writing for his new book, "The Hot Shoe Diaries," (Big Light from Small Flashes) and now it's in the final production stages, with an anticipated shipping date in mid to late March. I askedĀ  Joe about his new book, and here's what he said: "Up front I dedicate a section of the book to the great shooters who taught us all, and those who are following in their footsteps to create a learning and sharing environment on the Web. Then, I do a thing on holding cameras and also…

    First, thanks SO much to everyone who shared their ideas for what they'd like to see covered in my new Photoshop CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks book. The good news is: A lot of the techniques you guys asked for are already in the book (which is really good news for me), and some of your ideas are going to be added to the book (now that I know what you're looking for). After reading your comments (over 150 of them), I did realize that I haven't done a good job of making it clear exactly what the book is about, which is why I included this Photoshop World poster at left. Creating that poster from scratch, including putting the collage together which includes the field, the stadium, the lights, the helmet, the reflection of the stadium in the helmet, adding the shadows, creating…

    I'm just 8 days from the deadline to turn in my "Photoshop CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks" book, and before I turn it all in, I wanted to see if I could get some input from you on what to include in these last chapters. First, a little background on the book. This is the book that started my whole career, as it was the first book I ever wrote, and the first edition was on Photoshop 5.5 (the Photoshop 6 cover is shown above, because it was essentially the same book). The book is a special effects book, and is based on teaching the reader how to create the same looks and effects you see in magazines, on the Web, on TV, etc. I've been planning on doing a new edition of this book for years now (the last version was for Photoshop…

    I don't normally do book reviews, because I don't think it's right for me, a Photoshop and photography book author, to publicly criticize another author's Photoshop or photography instruction book. It just ain't right. Luckily, with this book I don't have to (which is why I'm making an exception and doing a book review). I just got a copy of "Footprint Travel Photography" by Steve Davey (published by FootPrintBooks), and I have to tell you, I'm very impressed. Here are seven things I love about this book: The author is a great travel photographer, and this book is loaded with this beautiful images. It's got a nice, clean layout that makes you want to read the book It's broken down into short, digestible one, two, and four page sections on a particular topic or idea. The author writes in a very conversational style, and…

    I'm finishing up the update to, "The Photoshop Elements 7 Book for Digital Photographers," (co-authored with Matt Kloskowski) and each time I update a book, I always use all new photos throughout the book, which means I have to be shooting pretty much all the time (which gives me a great excuse to use with my wife, "Honey, it's for work." ;-) Anyway, I shot a number of new images just for the book, and I thought it would be cool to do an on-location sports portrait of some local kids who play Soccer (which is called football about every place else on the planet). My buddy Jim Workman is president of the local Soccer (football) league and he set-up a shoot for me with a family that had three talented, fun, and really sweet kids. This was my first location shoot with Brad…
