  • I thought that after all these years it would be impossible to top my most magical of all tag lines (the now famous "Matt Kloskowski is Rockin' the Houseski"). Not only did it help turn Matt into a household name, it helped untold thousands around the world properly pronounce Matt's last name---a name which Matt himself will tell you has been mispronounced again and again ever since he was a young boy in the streets of Gdansk. But this week, lightning struck once again while I was chatting with Photoshop Hall of Famer Eddie Tapp, who was at the Kelby Training studios working on some online training classes for us. We were talking and all of a sudden it just hit me. The tag line that will propel Eddie into more fame and fortune (if that's even possible), is.....(wait for it......wait for it.....)......"Holy Crap---It's…

    Hi Everybody: I just thought I'd pop in here real quick just to let you know something that I hope you already know, but just in case you weren't sure: I absolutely, positively read each and every comment you post here on the blog. In fact, not only do I read them here on the site, each comment is emailed directly to me, and even forwarded to my iPhone as well, so I often read them even when I'm away from my computer. Unfortunately, as much as I'd like to, I usually can't respond to individual comments or technical questions, or I wouldn't have time left to teach classes, write articles, or books, do Photoshop User TV, play with my kids, go to dinner with my wife, etc. There are so many times where I really want to jump in and answer a question…

    Looking for an incredible learning opportunity? Here's one: Our buddy, (and Photoshop World and Kelby Training instructor), Ben Willmore, is doing an special three-day hands-on workshop on High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography at the Palm Beach Photographic Workshops in Delray Beach, Florida on January 11-13, 2008 Ben is the master of HDR (that's his image shown here), and if you've really wanted to get your arms around it, there is no better way. Here's the link for more info, or to sign up (space is very limited, and this workshop is coming up fast, so if you're planning on going, I'd sign up now)

    A number of people asked to see the unretouched car shot as it came out of the camera....well, here it is (click for a larger version). I was able to darken the sky by setting the Recovery slider to 100 (in Camera Raw), and throwing the rest of the Seven Point System at it. The car didn't get that much attention (except for the "painting with light" steps from the Seven Points), but cloning those wires over the roof the hotel was a HUGE pain. Retouching the ground and those wires took 90% of the retouching time (I used a combination of cloning and copying those wires up onto their own layer and using that copy of them to the right of the car to cover up the hotel roof). Hope that helps. :)

    Chicago-based photographer David Cuerdon, who designed the cover art for the June 2007 issue of Photoshop User magazine last year, has already won numerous awards for his cover design, but now Lisa Gumz (a professional makeup artist who did the make-up for the shoot, and is also David's wife) has now won an award for the same cover, as she took the "Best of Category" award in "The Create Awards" Photography Support (make-up) category. Our congratulations to Lisa and David for combining their talents to come up with such a striking cover. Way to go, you two! :-)

    If you're going to PPA's Imaging USA (which kicks off Sunday in Tampa, Florida), I'm going to be teaching a retouching session in the Kelby Training Booth on the show floor on both Monday and Tuesday. Then, Tuesday afternoon, "The Photoshop Guys" (Matt Kloskowski, Dave Cross, and I) are taping a special episode of Photoshop User TV from the booth, and both RC and Corey Barker (our NAPP cohorts), will also be doing live sessions in the booth, so if you're at the show, I'll hope you'll stop by and check it out. Here's the Kelby Training Booth Schedule: SUNDAY 12:00 pm: Automating Photoshop for Photographers (with Matt Kloskowski) 1:00 pm: Creating Flash Galleries in a flash (with RC Concepcion) 2:00 pm: Photoshop for Wedding Photographers (with Matt Kloskowski) 3:00 pm: Photoshop & Dreamweaver Integration (with RC Concepcion) 4:00 pm: Photoshop CS3 Channels (with…
