We’ve been getting a lot of frantic calls and emails about our Photoshop for Photographers seminar next week in Houston with Ben Willmore, because a few days ago it sold out.

The good news is; we were able to expand the ballroom in the Convention Center to accomodate more people (so everyone on the cancellation waiting list will be now able to attend), and if you weren’t already signed up—now you can (although there are already less than 40 seats left, so if you’re thinking of going—-I’d sign up now. Here’s the link.

Adobe and CDW are hosting a series of events on the Creative Suite (CS4), and they’ve given us some invites which we’re allowed to pass on, so here are the upcoming cities, and the links to download a PDF of the invite (details are included in the PDF).

  • Boca Raton, FL: Wednesday, March 18th (Morton’s, The Steakhouse) Invite Link
  • Tampa, FL: Tuesday, March 17th (at Maggiano’s Little Italy) Invite Link
  • Washington, DC: Friday, March 13th (at Morton’s, The Steakhouse). Invite Link

By the way—lunch is included (Sweet!). Should be a great experience, so if you can get out to one of these,  I’d download the invite and RSVP while they’re are still seats available.

Dave Cross, Matt Kloskowski and I put together a quick little video for people who are going to Photoshop World next month in Boston to help them get the most from their experience. If you’re going—definitely check out this clip.

Also, I learned on Friday that they’re extending the Early Bird $100 off registration until next Friday, so if you missed your chance last week, you’ve now got ’till Friday (here’s the link).



Hi everybody. It’s Friday, and here’s what’s up:

  • Apple, I’m Begging You!
    I don’t usually ask Apple for, well…anything, but today I’m begging; please, please, I implore you, give us an option to turn Gestures off on the new MacBook Pro laptops. Besides Photoshop CS4 rotating my canvas and zooming in/out all day, now I’m using Adobe InDesign CS4 as well, and now my text blocks rotate when I least expect it. Of course, it’s not just Adobe products (or I’d be pleading to Adobe here instead). My font sizes change in Safari and Email a dozen times a day. It is driving me crazy!!!! OK, that’s it—-just had to get it off my chest. I’m OK now.
  • My New Tour Dates, and Our New Tour Site
    We launched a totally redesigned (and vastly improved) version of our live one-day Photoshop seminars site (now called “Kelby Training Live”-–one of the site’s headers is shown above), and we’ve got the new dates up there for not only my Lightroom 2 Live Tour (Denver on Wed. May 20th, and Portland, Oregon on Friday, May 22nd), but also my new “Photoshop CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks Tour,” which kicks off in Washington DC on Friday, May 8th. Here’s a link to check out the new site, and the upcoming dates for all our tours (including Bert Monroy’s Creativity Tour, Ben Willmore’s Photoshop for Photographers Tour, Joe McNally’s new Off Camera Flash Tour, and Dave Cross’ Maximum Photoshop Tour).
  • My Original “Photoshop Insider Blog” Site is Still Online
    I started this blog over at back in 2005, and I was searching for something the other day, and realized that the old site is still online, so if you’ve got a minute, go take a quick look at the “old blog.” There’s still some decent info over there (along with stuff that’s totally outdated). Here’s the link to my original Photoshop Insider blog.
  • Versace’s “Finish the Sentenence”
    One of my favorite things on my buddy Dave Cross’ site is his “Finish The Sentence” feature, and last week he had Vincent “Vinny, V-man, Vin-man” Versace,” finishing the sentences.  Here’s the link to “Vs” thing. (Also, while you’re there; check out Mike Fulton’s Finish the Sentence this week. Very well done).

Well, that’s all I got. That’s it. I’m tapped out. Have a great weekend everybody, and if you use Photoshop CS4, don’t forget to scroll down and take this week’s CS4 Tool/Feature survey.


I just learned this week that our friend, photographer, artist, Adobe evangelist, and Photoshop Hall of Famer Julieanne Kost is featured in an exhibition of her work (made famous in her highly acclaimed book, “Window Seat“) at the Modernbook Gallery in Palo Alto, California.

Her exhibition called “In Flight” is featured along with the exhibition “Urban Constructs” by Richard Stultz, and both run through March 1, 2009 at the gallery. Here’s a link to see some of Julieanne’s work (taken from the window seat of commercial airliners) which are featured in the gallery, and here’s the link to the gallery for more info, times and directions. I am so tickled to see Julieanne’s amazing work getting the recognition it so richly deserves with a gallery exhibition like this. Way to go! :)

If you’ve got a minute and 40 seconds, check out this clip (below) that our video team put together to give you a glimpse of what it’s like in a class session at Photoshop World. There are a couple of funny moments, including one with Joe McNally (what an engaging teacher!), and there’s a very cute Photoshop tip from Dave Cross that totally cracked me up when I heard it, but at the same time—-I’ll never forget that keyboard shortcut! Definitely worth checking out.
