The boys over at PixelGenius LLC are set to release a host of free custom paper profiles for Epson’s just announced Signature Worthy Exhibition Fiber Paper (the paper I talked about in the previous post), and you’ll be able to download them direct from Epson’s new Pro Imaging Site starting on October 15th. Here’s the link to the profiles download page from Pixel Genius.
Here’s a coupla Monday quickies:
I found this over on PDN’s Pulse; it’s a list of “The 15 Best Magazine Covers Since 1960” (as chosen by YourCover.com), and it includes a category called “Best Use of Photoshop.” It’s a fun, quick little article, and will start your Monday off right. Here’s the link.
Rod Harlan, over at the new site DV Confidential, posted a different perspective on my new “Photoshop 7-Point-System” book (I wasn’t going to unveil this brand new book until tomorrow, when I hope to post a short video about it, but apparently, the word is already out), and you can read it here. Also, if you’re in the Tampa Bay area, Rod is speaking tomorrow night at the Media Professionals of Florida meeting. Here’s the link for info on when and where, in case you can go.
If you’re not sure which version of Photoshop you should be using, Adobe has posted a page that will help. Click here to go there.
That’s it for now. I’ve got three other posts today, so scroll on down to check ’em out. Have a great Monday!
There’s a brand new source for buying Fine Art prints online, called “Digital Photo and Art” which debuted at Photoshop World Las Vegas. This new site features some of my own photography for sale, along with fine art prints from Bert Monroy, Ben Willmore, and Jim DiVitale (here’s the link to my images on their site).
I’m offering two sizes of prints, 13″x19″ and 16″x20″ prints, and 100% of my proceeds from the sale of my prints go to “Springs of Hope Kenya,” which is in the process of building an orphanage and clinic for orphaned and homeless children in Kenya, so if you do buy one of the prints, you know you’re helping an incredibly important cause, and one that I hold dear to my heart.
Note: If you do buy one of my prints, please let me know because there’s something I’d like to send you, as my way of saying thanks for your support of Springs of Hope, Kenya.
There’s an excerpt from my book, “The Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers” posted over at CreativePro.com, which shows you, among other things, how to crop in CS3 using the photographic rule of thirds. I know what you’re thinking; “Cropping. That sounds exciting!” but it’s actually a really helpful technique, which makes use of the Custom Shape tools. Here’s the link to the tutorial.
