Friday News Wrap-up

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Well, I’m back home and back in the saddle (I have no idea what that means). Anyway, here’s what’s going on:

  • By now you’ve learned that my link to Moose Peterson’s News Blog (referenced on Wed.) was missing a letter, and that made the link broken. Sorry about that. The correct link is here.
  • Renown Landscape Photographer Stephen Johnson has just released his June 2007 Newsletter, and you can read it online from his site (while you’re there, make sure you check out some of his amazing photography).
  • I just ran across a great site with Web Gallery templates for Lightroom, including some very cool Flash templates. It’s called LightroomGalleries.com, and if you’re into Lightroom, you’ve gotta check it out.
  • Apparently, you’ve gotta be really quick if you want one of B&H Photo’s “Scott Kelby Location Kits.” I saw this comment posted by “Ade” yesterday: “I got the “location kit available” e-mail late on Tuesday morning, and placed my order as soon as I could. I’ve got a UPS tracking number. On Wednesday, I wanted to buy a second kit for a friend and was suprised to find out that it was out of stock again! So, it would seem that whatever kits B&H had probably sold out on Tuesday!” So, if you want one of those kits, I would go to the page on B&H’s site (here’s the link), and click the “Notify When in Stock” link. Then B&H will email you when it’s in stock, and when you get that email; go right then and get yours.
  • Dave Cross, like you’ve never seen him (even more animated than usual), and how to quickly create your own animated “you.” You’ve just gotta see it (click here).
  • A really great, insightful interview with our buddy, and world class photographer Joe McNally over at GulfNews.com. Joe is one of the hottest photographers on the planet (this guy is everywhere), and the article gives you some great background and insights into the artist and his work (I think this interview was conducted while Joe was in Dubai recently teaching a workshop on shooting from a helicopter). Click here to read it online.
  • Digital Artist (and Photoshop World instructor) Fay Sirkis was at my Lightroom Seminar in New York yesterday, and she just released an in-depth DVD called “A celebration of art; Paint like a Master.” She had the DVDs available for sale on the breaks yesterday and she completely sold out!!!!! Fay’s classes at Photoshop World are standing-room-only, and her pre-conference workshop is always among the first (if not first) to sell-out in advance. Fay is just a gifted, passionate, and engaging instructor and her DVD is already getting rave reviews. If you didn’t pick up a copy yesterday, you can order it online right here.

That’s it for my Friday update. Have a great weekend everybody! :-)

Update From Gate E-66

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Yup, I’m on the road again (this time off to New York for my Lightroom Tour tomorrow, where we’ll have just over 800 photographers learning “The New Digital Photography Workflow using Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop CS3). Here’s what’s going on:

A very kind person posted that yesterday they got an email from B&H Photo letting them know that the Scott Kelby Location Kit is now back in stock. If you’ve been waiting for it, here’s the direct link (also, here’s the link to my video on how the kit works.

Moose Peterson, Joe McNally, and Laurie Excel are, right this very minute, out in Oregon holding their Digital Landscape Workshop Series (DLWS) that you’ve heard me talking about here on the blog. I SO wanted to be out there with me, but it ran at the same time as my NYC Lightroom Tour, so I had to miss this one. To make matters worse, Moose has posted some just beautiful images from their shoots on his News blog. Click here to feel as jealous as I do that we’re not there.

Time to board. Gotta run! :)

The Monday News Thingy

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Good Monday everybody!!!

First, a quick thanks to everyone who came out to the Atlanta stop on my Lightroom Tour last Friday. I met some really great people (they definitely rolled out the Southern Hospitality), and I really had a great time all the way around. Thanks for making me feel so at home up there. :-) Now, onto the news thingy:

  • Congrats go out to our friend, digital video genius, and Photoshop World instuctor Richard Harrington, the proud daddy to an adorable bouncing baby girl (Mom and baby are doing just great) Way to go, dad!!!! They named the baby “Sorenson Codec Harrington” (not really, but you know he probably considered it).
  • By now you’ve heard that Adobe released a major update to Camera Raw, and the new 4.1 adds a number of very cool features. Well, Jeff Schewe over at PhotoshopNews.com did a wonderful in-depth article on all the new features and if you use Camera Raw, this is absolutely a must-read article. Click here to go there.
  • I’m up in New York on Thursday with my Lightroom Tour, at the Jacob Javits Center. If you haven’t signed up yet, click here to get on board with the New Digital Photography Workflow using Lightroom and Photoshop CS3. :-)
  • If you haven’t downloaded the free Adobe Media Gallery (AMG) for creating Flash and HTML Web Galleries from directly within the CS3 Bridge, it’s really well done and a big improvement on anything Photoshop’s offered before. You can (Note: you’ll need the download it from Adobe Labs.free update to Bridge 2.1 before you can use AMG, so download that first, then download AMG).
  • Next week I begin my week-long workshop at the amazing Santa Fe Workshops in Santa Fe New Mexico. If you’ve never had the chance to take a workshop there—I highly recommend it. I can tell you, as an instructor, teaching there is one of the most fun, energetic, exhausting, and exhilarating experiences an educator can have. One can only imagine what an incredible experience it must be for a student to learn in such an energy-charged creative environment). It’s a first class educational experience top-to-bottom and if you’re serious about photography, or Photoshop, or both, click this link to see the list of their upcoming classes for the rest of 2007.

That’s it for now, gang! Have a great Monday (well, have the best Monday you can), and we’ll talk again tomorrow. :)

Friday News Update

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

It’s Friday; I’m teaching Lightroom in Atlanta all day today, so how is it that I have news? It’s because I posted it at 1:00 am on Thursday night (I shouldn’t have had that fifth cup of coffee). Here’s what’s goin’ on:

  • The Inside Digital Photo internet radio show (Podcast) did an in-depth interview with me, and it just got posted (you can just go to their site and click to listen to the interview right there on their Web page—no iPod necessary). Scott Shepard’s the host, and he asked some questions, and brought up some topics I don’t normally get asked, so I hope you’ll find it interesting. Here’s the link.
  • Adobe has released a free update for the CS3 Bridge (Bringing the Bridge to version 2.1) and beside addressing some issues, it has streamlined and enhanced some existing features. For more details, and to download the free update, click here for the Mac version, or here for the Windows version.
  • If you’re using Photoshop CS3 for Web Design, and you’re wondering where all the Web features that used to be in ImageReady (which came with every version of Photoshop since around Photoshop 5.5), went to, then check out this tech doc from Adobe, and the cloud of mystery will be lifted.
  • The Photographers Journey blog did a cool article for Firefox Browser users, called “The Top 10 Firefox Extensions for Photographers.” You can read it right here.
  • Matt’s GAPW Photography and Photoshop workshop in Banff has just a few seats left (it’s coming up on June 13-17, 2007), so if you want learn from one of the top pros in the business, in one of the most beautiful settings for landscape photography in all of North America, sign up quick at GAPW’s Web site (The Great American Photographic Workshops), at GAphotoworks.com
  • Looking for some free, cool grungy Photoshop borders for your images? Look no further (click here).
  • The buzz is already HUGE over the new features in yesterday’s release of Camera Raw 4.1. If you didn’t download it yet, scroll down to yesterday’s post (from Gate A17) and check it out.
  • On the heels of Adobe’s Camera Raw 4.1 release, if you use Lightroom you should DEFINITELY go and read Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty’s Adobe blog. Lots of fascinating details nestled among his details.
  • If you’re wondering if people are diggin’ Adobe’s new CS3 Creative Suite, and Photoshop CS3? Check out Forbe’s online article titled, “Adobe Rises With Positive Analyst Notes” (by the way, the answer is—–they are. BIG TIME!).

Well, that’s it from the Marriott in Atlanta! Hope to see some of you in class tomorrow! :)

Greetings (and news) From Gate A-17

by Scott Kelby  |  0 Comments

Ya know, it seems like only yesterday I was in this airport (actually, it was, as I returned from San Jose on a red-eye), but now I’m on my way to Atlanta for my Lightroom Live! tour tomorrow (Friday).

There is some big news today: Adobe released a pretty significant upgrade to Camera Raw today (taking it to version 4.1). Adobe had announced it earlier in the week, but now it’s actually available for download, and besides adding support for some of the newest cameras, it adds new sharpening controls, better noise reduction, and really slick new features that make it a must-download upgrade (especially since its free!). You can download Camera Raw 4.1 (for Mac and Widows) by clicking here.

Well, it’s time to board, so we’ll catch you tomorrow with my Friday News Update. Have a great day everybody, and to everybody who’s coming to my Lightroom seminar in Atlanta—we’ll see you there!!
