Your Work Hanging In A Museum (Well, At Least it Looks Like It Is)

by Scott Kelby  |  2 Comments

museum1.jpg

Jeff Revell (from Jeff’s Photo Gallery), sent me this link to a very cool site that lets you upload one of your photo, and then you choose one of four different museum layouts, and it takes your uploaded photo (or a photo from a Flickr gallery), and puts it up on the wall, like my photo you see above. It’s really a no-brainer; it does all the work. Check it out right here.

A Note From The Book Publisher of my “Seven Point System”

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

peachpit.jpg

Hi Friends of Scott,

This is Scott’s publisher, and I just heard that some of you who pre-ordered the book at Amazon may have received an automated email message from Amazon stating that The Scott Kelby 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3 Book has been delayed. The book has already released from our warehouse and is already selling, but because Amazon hadn’t fully received the inventory before the trigger to put in place an automated email date change message went out, you may have received that automated email saying the book wasn’t yet available. Please ignore Amazon’s email, as the book is available from us, and will be shipping from Amazon within the week.

Thanks to all of you for your patience. And I can tell you now, after having read the book myself, it’s SO worth the wait of a few days from Amazon. Enjoy.

- Nancy

Wednesday News Stuff

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

It’s Wednesday; here’s what’s up:

  • Ben Willmore sent me a link to a video demo he did on the Think Tank holster belt-based system I mentioned last week, but it was Ben’s comment, that “I’d rather change camera brands than use a different bag system… it’s that good.” That really made an impact with me. Here’s the link to watch Ben’s review on YouTube.
  • If you’re ready for one of those once-in-a-lifetime photo workshops, here’s one I’d love to take; it’s Santa Fe Workshop’s “Australian Photographic Journey,” hosted by Jerry and Julie Courvoisier, coming up on November 7 – 17, 2007. It just sounds like an amazing experience, and the details are right here.
  • I recently got a really fascinating photography book, called “In Katrina’s Wake: Portraits of Loss From An Unnatural Disaster” by Chris Jordan (shown above). It’s really surprising in how it creates images that are almost beautiful out of such a tragic event. It really shows a side of Katrina that I, for one, had never considered, and you can see some of these images on Chris’ web site. However, I encourage you check out his “Running the Numbers” gallery while you’re there, which uses a very clever method to relay his message. It’s pretty amazing, and well worth the visit. Here’s the link to Chris’ photography.
  • Don’t miss next week’s episode of Photoshop User TV, as our special in-studio guest is renowned outdoor photographer Moose Peterson, and he brought along the newly announced Nikon D3, and he gives a quick demo on some of its coolest features. The show will be posted on Monday afternoon at PhotoshopUserTV.com
  • UPDATE: Don’t miss the current issue of Photoshop User TV, with special guest Wedding Guru David Ziser. David showed us more cool stuff than we could actually fit on the show, so we’ve created a special bonus segment with him, that’s only available on the Web. Here’s the link.

That’s what’s goin’ on. Have a great Wednesday everybody! :)

Tuesday News Nuggets

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Here’s a quick look at what’s going on:

  • NAPP’s own Bert Monroy has just posted another episode of his Pixel Perfect podcast, and in it, he features a photorealistic slash technique he credits to another of our in-house experts, Corey “The Photoshop Lad” Barker, (co-host of Layers TV) and it’s just way cool (plus, Corey is totally psyched to have Bert showing one of his techniques). Click here to watch it online.
  • Here’s an amazing opportunity; world famous digital landscape photographer (and author of the highly acclaimed book, Stephen Johnson on Digital Photography), is holding a special “Digital Black & White” hands-on course in his lab, coming up on November 8-12, 2007. Because of the incredible advances in paper and ink recently, this is a course I would dearly love to take myself. If you want the chance to learn B&W from one of today’s true masters, snag one of the few spots now. Here’s the link for more info.
  • I’ve gotten a number of emails from readers and NAPP members, asking when it’s OK to upgrade to the soon-to-be-released (three days from now), Mac OS X Leopard. I have an easy answer to this one: “When Terry White says it’s OK.” When I go to Terry’s Tech Blog, and he gives it the full OK (meaning all the key Adobe apps work in Leopard without a hitch), then I’ll make the full switch (instead of running it just on a testing machine).So far, Leopard seems very stable (by the way; you’re going to LOVE Leopard–it’s like getting a whole new Mac), but again, I look to the power of the great and powerful guru of technology on when to make the full switch. Here’s the link to Terry’s blog (which yesterday featurd a great article; 50 things he’d like to see added to the iPhone. Today he has some shots from Dave Moser’s highly photographed wedding).
  • Here’s two more winners of signed copies of my iPhone book: Friday: John Marsh. Monday: Cyndi Clark. Don’t forget, this Friday we’ll be drawing for a winner of an Apple iPhone (not the book—the phone. Well, the winner will get the book, too, but at this point, it’s really about the phone). If you haven’t entered the free drawing, do so right here. If you haven’t bought the book, do so at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

That’s it for now. Have a great Tuesday everybody!
