Not only is it here (the eBook version is available now, and the print version is right behind it), we’ve got a screamin’ deal on it, too! (More on that in a sec).

First, here’s what the book’s about (it’s only 33-seconds long – come on – you’ve got 33 seconds – hit play).

So, this Photoshop book is a follow-up to my book “How Do I Do That in Lightroom?” which really resonated with a lot of users as it gets you right to the thing you want to do, and just that, so it was natural to follow up with a Photoshop edition. Just like in the Lightroom book – you’re not learning everything in Photoshop; just that thing you need to do right now (like the video says). Also, it’s not for brand new beginners. It’s for folks who kind of already know their way around the program a bit and kinda know what they want to do, but can’t remember (or just don’t know) how to do it (or where it’s hidden). That’s who the book is really for.

OK, check out this rockin’, smokin’ (add your own adjective with an apostrophe here) deal for both KelbyOne members and non-members (courtesy of the book’s publisher, Rocky Nook):

KelbyOne members can get the eBook for just $10 NOW, pre-order the paperback for $20, or get BOTH for $25 at this link – This is a 10-day-only special offer. Once you enter your KelbyOne info, you’ll receive access to the exclusive coupon codes.
If you’re not a KelbyOne member, you can get the eBook NOW on Amazon or pre-order the paper back on Amazon or Barnes & Noble
OK, that’s the scoop
Tomorrow on The Grid I’ve got a special guest, and a new product reveal, but if I mention who it is, it might give it away, so I’ll share that tomorrow, but it’s cool stuff. :)
Have a great Tuesday everybody!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! It’s a happy Tuesday because I’m stickin’ a fork in this series because I think both of us (you, and me) have had about enough of this series. It sounded like a good idea at first, but after 7 posts and a combined total of just 10 comments between all of them (so, an average of 1.43 comments per post), I figured it’s time to bail on this fairly lame idea, so I put the final three all in this one video.

This last one is actually better than it sounds, ’cause I’ve got three good little things in there, but if history is an indication, it will raise a collective yawn, and perhaps 1.43 comments, so…..here’s the video.

OK, now we can put that behind us, and enjoy a wonderful Guest Blog Wednesday tomorrow from the awesome Stacy Pearsall.

Have a great Tuesday folks!

P.S. Next week I’m in Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale with my seminar. Ya’ll come out. :)

Happy Friday everybody! Long weekend coming here in the US (whoo hoo!), but we still have time for another quick installment of my “Things you didn’t realize, or forgot, were in Photoshop” and this time it’s a somewhat obscure selection tool. You’ve probably heard of it, but there’s a good chance you’ve never used it, but it’s actually a nice little tool to keep in the back of your mind — ya never know when you’ll need it.

Hope you have a great weekend!

P.S. I posted all the source images for download that I used in my new “Photoshop: From Flat to Fabulous” so you can follow along with me, using the same Raw images I used in the class. Hope you find that helpful. 

There’s a bunch of ways to remove the background behind your subject or product or logo, but I betcha didn’t know about this one (or it ya did, I bet ya forgot about it):

Do you live in Ft. Lauderdale?
Are you at least within driving distance? OK, how about a short flight? In either case, you should come out to my seminar there on June, 9th. It’s going to be epic! Ticket info here.

Have a great one everybody, and we’ll see ya back here tomorrow for another in my 10-part series. :)

Best,

It’s Monday — and #5 is a alive! This is kind of an obscure feature, and it doesn’t always work 100% of the time (what does, right?), but when it works, it’s pretty awesome. It allows you to match the overall color and tone of one photo to any other one you pick. It’s cooler than it sounds.

Hope you found that helpful. :)

Hey, can you help me spread the word to Orlando photographers?
That’s because I’m heading there in a few weeks with my one-day seminar, and I want to see lots of old friends, and make some new ones. I’m there on Tuesday, June 7th – if you know a friend in that area, can you let ’em know. Much appreciated. Here’s ticket info. 

Good a pretty cool tip for tomorrow, so come on back for #6 in the series. :)

Best,

-Scott

OK, we’re back with another — this time it’s three little features/options/shortcuts/whatever for the Move tool and they are actually pretty darn handy (One I use multiple times every single day — don’t know what I’d do with out it). Check ’em out below (it’s a really quick video):

Hope you found that helpful.
