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!!

I’m proud to announce that Nikon, Inc. has just come on as a co-sponsor of my new Lightroom Live U.S. seminar tour (joining Epson, Westcott, Peachpit Press, and Dell). During the day, we have three live shoots (A bridal shoot, we shoot live Calla Lillies, and we have a live portrait shoot), and I shoot with both a Nikon D2Xs and a Nikon D200 during these shoots.

The next stop for the tour is Friday in Atlanta, and then I’m up in New York City on Thursday, June 7th at the Jacob Javits Center. For more info, or to sign up, visit PhotoshopSeminars.com

If you’re at one of these next two events, please join me in welcoming Nikon (and don’t forget to come up and say “hi” if you read this blog). :-)
