I first met Alan when I was doing some tutorials for the Lexar Pro Corner web site, and being a musician, I was instantly drawn to his concert photography (though he does a wide range of topics---not just concerts). Alan's also a frequent commenter here on the blog, and is one of the first to jump in to answers questions and give advice to other readers, which I think says a lot about him.

We've been doing Learning Centers now for years, but what RC, Corey, and the Layers magazine team have done with their Adobe Creative Suite (CS4) Learning Center, is beyond anything we've done before. They've teamed up with more than 30 instructors, authors, writers, and Creative Suite experts to bring you a vast collection of videos on all the new CS4 Creative Suite applications, including InDesign, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, Illustrator, and of course, Photoshop. If you're a creative suite user, you've gotta stop by and check out what they've done over there, because it is off the hook. Here's the link to the Layers Creative Suite Learning Center, the most comprehensive CS4 learning anywhere, and it's all free!!!
...Photoshop World instructor, DV guru, the author of the DVconfidential blog (link), the Director of the Photoshop World opening keynote presentation, and one of my oldest and dearest friends, the "MacDaddy" himself----Rod Harlan. If you've ever seen Roddy (as I call him) training at Photoshop World, or NAB, or any one of the conferences he appears at, you know he's always coming up with some cool stuff, and I can't wait to see what he's got cooked up for tomorrow (no, he hasn't told me). So, check back tomorrow and see what's up from Roddy. (er, Rod). ;-)
