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.

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):

Tomorrow, my guest blogger is none other than Amsterdam-based Fashion Photographer, Book Author, and Educator, Frank Doorhof
I love Frank, and have learned a lot from him — make sure you check out this post tomorrow (PLUS: if you live in Santa Cruz, he’s doing a one-day workshop there that will blow your mind. What an opportunity! Here’s the details).

Have a great Tuesday everybody, and we’ll see you here tomorrow for Frank’s Guest Post. :)

Hi folks – sorry I missed posting on Friday – I was out in San Diego for my seminar, and by the time I got back from a dinner/meeting and the seminar and all, I was too whipped to write so I called in “lame.” However, I’m tan, rested, and ready (well, ready anyway), so here is #2 in my series.

This one (below) is a feature Adobe snuck past a lot of folks — they didn’t make much noise about it at all, but it creates a lot of the cross-processed and film looks that are all the rage these days. Check out the video – it’s actually pretty cool, and gets you those looks without having to buy a plug-in.

Hope you found that helpful.

Quick shout out to the photographers in San Diego
Many thanks to all the folks who came out to my seminar there – had a great time meeting everybody and just love any chance I get to be out there. What a great city! My next seminars are in Orlando, Florida and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida next month.

Hope you all have a great Monday, and I’ll be back tomorrow with #3 in our series. :)

Best,

-Scott
