Well, now that Photoshop World Vegas is in the history books, I guess it's time to get back to "real life" and the ol' blog-a-roo. In that spirt, here's what's up: Update on the New "Photoshop User TV" We're just about finished building-out the new studio, with its totally new look, and new way-cool format for the show, and in just a couple of weeks, we'll be launching our new season of Photoshop User TV, with loads of new Photoshop tutorials and tricks (and more content than ever!). We're just getting so close now I thought I'd better check in and let you know it's moving along really well. We've been running some "mini-shows" during the construction phases, but we're almost there. Also, Matt Kloskowski and I are launching a new digital photography show as well (the one that's taking the place of D-Town),…

I certainly don't think so (I'd rather see airlines regulated as to how they treat their passengers), but according to an article in Yahoo's Shine magazine, a governing body in the UK thinks things have gotten so out-of-hand that maybe photo retouching should be regulated. Here's what the Shine article said: "In what’s poised to be the biggest uproar yet over the ongoing issue of Photoshopping in mass media, members of the British Parliament are calling for a ban on digitally altering ads aimed at children under 16, and disclosure of these modifications in ads aimed at adults, reports Jezebel." Here's the link to their article to read more.

My video crew was on hand at my recent Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks seminar in Orlando, Florida, and right before the 2nd session kicked off, I did a quick little "howdy," but beyond that, they included a behind-the-scenes look at the seminar, so if you've never been to one of our one-day workshops, take a look at the video clip below for a quick glimpse at the day.

Just a quick heads-up: we have well over 600 people already signed up for my seminar on Friday, and so we're totally sold out for this workshop. Thanks to everybody who signed up---we're gonna have a wild day!!!! See you guys in Orlando! -Scott P.S. My Lightroom 2 Live Tour is coming to Detroit on Friday, October 16th, and then my last Lightroom 2 Tour of the year will be in Tampa, Florida on Monday, November 16th. Here's the link for more details or to reserve your seat now!

Yesterday I found out that over 500 people are already signed up for "Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks" one-day workshop in Orlando, Florida (held next Friday---one week from today), but somebody's missing. You! It's not too late to register---follow this link, where you'll find out the full class schedule, and how to reserve your seat (It's only $99, or $79 if you're a NAPP member) for a day of nothing but the latest Photoshop special effects (these are real commercial effects---the same ones you see in print, on the Web, in ads, on TV, and in Hollywood----techniques you can really use in your own everyday work). Hope I'll see you there next Friday---we're going to have a blast!

I got an email yesterday from a reader of one of my books, and it's an email I've gotten dozens of times before, and it always puts me in an uneasy position. Uneasy enough, and yet common enough, that I wanted to share it with you guys. He had read something in my book "The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers" where I said to do something a particular way, but then he found someone on a Web site somewhere who said to do it differently (in fact, they said to do it the exact opposite of what I said in my book). So, basically, he was emailing me to ask me to defend what I written in my book. Ugh. As I've done dozens of times in the past, I set out to write a lengthy explanation of why what I had stated in…
