It’s CS5 Monday!!!!
It doesn’t get much more exciting around here than this!!!!
>> At 11:00 am EST this morning Adobe will unveil the new features in Photoshop CS5, and all the products the entire Creative Suite (here’s the link to be a part of their free online launch event).
>> Once Adobe makes their official announcement, we’ll be launching NAPP’s own Photoshop CS5 Learning Center—the largest and most comprehensive learning center and first-day training initiative in our history.
Here’s a peek at what’s in NAPP’s CS5 Learning Center:
• 16 Videos covering all the new features (from NAPP and friends)
• Exclusive Video Interview with Photoshop Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes
• Exclusive video Interview with Adobe Camera Raw Product Manager Tom Hogarty
• Full feature list that outlines the 100+ new Photoshop CS5 features and enhancements
• CS5 FAQ
• Special video segment on “What the Pros are Saying” about CS5
• Full Pricing Info, which versions are eligible for upgrades, and more important details
• Special Photoshop CS5 Tips video for Wacom tablet users
• Comparison of features to show what you missed if you skipped CS4 and are coming from CS3
• Links to other important CS5 learning resources
• Special content for NAPP Members only, including a special “Upgrade kit video” to help makes the transition to CS5 fast and easy, including how to move your stuff, PS/Illustrator integration video, and a video on “10 Little-Known CS5 Tips”
Here’s the link (just remember—it doesn’t go “live” until 11:00 am EST).
>> Of course, we have a special “All CS5″ episode of Photoshop User TV going live this week as well, and well…every week after that, too! (here’s the link so you can watch our free weekly online Photoshop how-to and Q&A show).
>> That will be followed by a Week-long series of Free CS5 Online Webinars hosted by Matt, Dave, Corey, RC, and me, (the times and all the details will be available on our Learning center when it goes live this morning). Also, don’t forget, we’ll be giving away a FREE upgrade to CS5 every day as part of our Webinars.
>> Of course, we’re rolling out all sorts of CS5 support and training throughout our sister sites later today, and this week, (like PlanetPhotoshop.com, LayersMagazine.com, and the NAPP Member Website, among others) so during the week I’ll keep you up-to-date on what’s news (it’s going to be a BIG week!).
>> Lastly, if you’re a Kelby Training Online Subscriber, we are releasing 14 brand new CS5 online classes starting today! That way, we can get you up-to-speed fast on how to use, and leverage, all the new CS5 features (before Adobe even ships the product, no less).
>> NOTE: Tomorrow I’m planning a Photoshop CS5 Q&A here on the blog, so if you’d like, post your questions here today, and I’ll pull from some of those tomorrow.
It’s a really exciting time to be a Photoshop user, and we very grateful that you guys give us the opportunity to share this great new stuff with you. See you online!
