If you're a NAPP member, not only will NAPP have a booth on the show floor at PPE, we've arranged a special deal where NAPP members can get a FREE expo pass (you can click here for the link to sign up free as a NAPP member, but you have to use the special VIP code which is posted on the NAPP member Website). We are also offering a special deal where, if a member brings by a non-member and they join, the referring member gets a free book or DVD of their choice. Sweet! NAPP's Executive Director, Larry Becker, will be in the booth (along with some other NAPP folks), so if you see our booth, be sure to give Larry some love.)

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. He's got a very cool blog post for tomorrow, and it goes in a totally different direction than previous Guest Bloggers, which is one of the things I enjoy most ---that each brings their own style and ideas, so make sure you check back tomorrow.

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). ;-)
