Adobe has added an online Lightroom Support Center on the Adobe.com site (click here for a direct link), where you can get troubleshooting help, with a searchable database, and lots of answers to frequently asked questions.
Just a quick heads-up: tomorrow’s the last day to use the Advance Registration discount to save $100 off a Photoshop World full-conference pass (The conference itself is April 4-6, 2007 at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center). So, if you’re going, but you haven’t signed up yet; I’d get on it. You can register on the Photoshop World Website, or you can call 1-800-738-8513 here in the States, or 813-433-5005 outside the US. Hope I’ll be seeing you in Boston! :-)
P.S. There’s a short video clip now on the Photoshop World Web site that gives you an idea of what it’s like actually being at a Photoshop World. It’s on the right side, and it plays right there on the page. Give it a quick look if you get a chance.
It’s 6:24 am, and I’m in Chicago (Ted flight; row 6, seat C) heading home (it’s my third flight today, after a red-eye home from San Francisco). I’ll have a full Yosemite recap later once I have a cup of my wife’s incredible coffee, and give my little baby girl a big, big, hug! :)
If you watch Photoshop TV, they’ve by now you’re very familiar with Dave Cross’s tradition of wearing a “Canada-shirt’ of some kind on every single show. In fact, it’s a different Canada shirt nearly every single episode, which means Dave must spend a significant amount of his discretionary time searching for new and different Canada shirts, and in fact Dave himself points to this is the reason why he hasn’t had the time to get his Masters degree (kidding). Anyway, Dave is auctioning (via eBay) some of these “worn once on TV” shirts (which come witha signed copy of Dave’s latest book), with the proceeds going to a wondeful cause; St. Judes Children’s Hospital. So, if you’d like to feel closer to Dave than you already do now (if that’s even possible), then get the full details by clicking here.
Yesterday, CNET reported that Adobe’s CEO Bruce Chizen noted that a free Web-based version of Photoshop would be released this later this year, and that Adobe would make money off it by selling Web advertising (ala Google). Apparently, this version won’t have the full feature set of either Photoshop CS3 or Elements 5, but will be a special version created just for the Web. Either way; I gotta tell ya—I didn’t see this one coming.
