Hi Gang: We're around 60-days or so away from the biggest Photoshop event on the planet:The Photoshop World Conference and Expo (in Las Vegas on Sept 4-6 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino), and if you're going (and I hope that you are), here are the sessions I'm teaching (there are over 100+ sessions but I hope you'll check out a couple of mine while you're at the conference).

Designing With Type for Photographers
(Wed., Sept 4th, 12:00 noon)
Bad type can ruin a really great photo and in this session, I'm going to show you how to create photo book covers, posters, web graphics and more  and how to have your type really compliment your work, rather than destroy it. You'll learn everything from the basics of typography including which fonts to use, when, and why, and how to create simple, beautiful-looking designs (it's easier than you'd think). This class will change the way think about, and use type and photos together from this point on.

Creating Your Own Custom Photo Book in Lightroom 5
(Thurs., Sept 5th, 12:00 noon)

In this session, updated to include the new photo books features added in Lightroom 5, you'll learn how to create beautiful photo books from right within Lightroom 4 itself. You'll see the entire workflow, step-by-step and exactly how to create your own custom books the easy way. There are lots of little inside tips, tricks, and time-saving techniques that you'll learn that will make creating photo books one of the most-fun, easy, and enjoyable parts of your photographic journey.

Portrait Retouching Techniques for Photographers
(Fri., Sept 6th, 1:00 pm)

Learn professional portrait retouching techniques for photographers from the guy who literally wrote the book (hey, that's me!). You'll learn my latest portrait retouching techniques and the fastest, most efficient, and most realistic-looking retouches for anyone who shoots portraits, and need to spend less time behind the computer and more time making images.

Now, if those three sessions from me aren’t enough reason (and honestly, they probably aren’t, right?), check out the quick video below that gives you 10 actually compelling reasons. ;-)

If you're going, I hope to see you in one of my classes. If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late: Here's the link.

Also, we've designed this year's event to have Seven very distinct FULL training tracks, so you can pretty much pick what you want to learn and get immersed in that topic for the entire conference, every day, all day long if you like (for example, if you're into Lightroom, you can take Lightroom classes every day all day â” it's like its own separate Lightroom conference within a conference. Same thing with Lighting, or graphic design, or business, and so on).

I put together a short video (below) that describes this "Seven Conferences in One" concept. Hope to see you in Vegas in September.

Wow — What an incredible week! I’m gonna skip the 1,000 words and just let these short videos tell the story. Our video crew (led by Erik Kuna) produces these each day during the conference, and then at the Wrap Up Rally at the end we show them as part of our closing ceremonies and it really gives you a wonderful day-by-day insight into what happens during the Photoshop World Conference & Expo.

My personal thanks to everyone who was a part of our East Coast Photoshop World Conference & Expo — can’t wait to see you all again in Vegas in the fall. Hope you enjoy the videos till then. Cheers, —Scott

Hey gang, Brad here with a few shots from our day of pre-conference workshops at Photoshop World Orlando. I’ll be sharing photos from Photoshop World here throughout the week every chance I get. No guest blogger or Free Stuff Thursday this week since we’ll be sharing news and events from the conference!

Of course, there was plenty of fun to be had at the Real World Concert Photography workshop with Alan Hess and Scott Diussa (and Big Electric Cat, who performed for the class and will be performing at tonight’s After Hours Party!)

Corey Barker talked about all things Channels, Selections, and Masks.

RC Concepcion helped people prep for the ACE Exam

Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch talked self-publishing in their APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur workshop

Dave Black tackled Lightpainting 101 with live models and various sets

And we ended the day with the Poolside Meetup, where attendees and instructors had a chance to mingle and get to know each other before the start of the conference!
