    Corey Barker turned me onto this amazing flash video (it's only about 90 seconds long), at the MGM Grand web site and I have to tell you; it is absolutely just about the most amazing Flash-based promo I've ever seen. This should have been a SuperBowl ad (it blows most of the others away). Take 90 seconds, follow this link, then click the ENTER MAXIMUM VEGAS link on the right side of the photo; sit back, and just watch. Incredibly creative, seamlessly edited, and flawlessly executed. My hats off the designers/video editors who dreamed this up.

    Since I released my "7-point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3" book, I've had a lot of questions from Lightroom users about how to open an image processed in Lightroom as Smart Object in Photoshop. Unfortunately, that feature wasn't available in Lightroom 1.4, so while there was a clunky workaround (which I covered earlier this year on the blog), it wasn't the real integration we wanted. Luckily, one of the features Adobe added in the public beta of Lightroom 2.0 made part of my Seven Point System for Photoshop CS3 work that much better with Lightroom because of its direct support of Smart Objects. Just go under Lightroom 2.0's Photo menu, under Edit in Adobe Photoshop CS3, and choose Open as Smart Object in Photoshop. Once the image is opened as a Smart Object, to reedit the image just double-click on it and it opens…

    I gotta tell ya; I was pretty excited to see this press release in my email in box yesterday, as Peachpit Press announced that according to figures obtained from Nielsen Bookscan, my book, The Digital Photography Book, Vol. 1 is the best-selling book on digital photography ever (selling over a quarter-million copies thus far). You can read the full release here, but something that's not in the release (which I learned in a phone call from my publisher), is that Volume 2 of that book is selling between three and four times as many copies as Volume 1 did for the same period of time. I'm speechless. My humble thanks to all my readers for their trust, support, and for making darn sure there will be a Volume 3. :)

    Here's waz up: One of my readers (I believe his name is Earl) posted a really useful comment here on Tuesday; he mentioned that on every removable drive he has (like a flash drive for example), he always puts a folder named "Property Of" and it contains his contact info. It's how he got back a flash drive lost in a snowy parking lot. Anyway, I thought it was a great tip and I wanted to (a) pass it on, and (b) thank Earl for sharing it (I'm sending him a signed copy of my 7-point-system book). If you're looking for a really unique photo workshop, with a famous photographer/trainer, check out the "Focus on Nature" workshops in Iceland. We're talking big name trainers like Stephen Johnson, National Geographic photographer Chris Rainer, Rick Sammon, Vincent Versace, and John Paul Caponigro, among others. I saw…

    I decided to use my recent trip to Dubai to field test Hoodman's RAW high-speed 300X 8GB UDMA memory cards, and I also used their high-speed UDMA card reader (because without a high-speed reader, you're not getting all the benefits UDMA brings). The main thing I'm (we're) always concerned about is reliability. It doesn't matter how fast the cards are if they fail, and so far I've put thousands of images on the cards and they've performed flawlessly (which I expected because of my experience with Hoodman products in the past). Beyond that, I've been very impressed with the speed. It writes to the card very fast, it downloads back to your computer very fast---in fact, I didn't realize how big a difference UDMA Cards would make, but now I see what all the fuss is about. OK, so they're really fast and they're…
