Thanks, as always, to Scott for having me back…whether I’m popping up in member-only events, recording courses or writing here, I always enjoy access to Photoshop’s most passionate and knowledgeable users (you guys teach me at least as much as I teach you – thank you).

In just days, I’ll see many of you at Photoshop World in Las Vegas! This month marks my 17th year at Adobe; anniversaries are a reflective time, especially for a sentimental fool like me. During that time, I’ve been to more Photoshop Worlds than I can count – for over a decade, I’ve visited regularly as an instructor, keynote speaker and attendee. Like releases of Photoshop, the memories all sort of blend together…but they’re all remembered with a smile.

The industry has changed a lot over the years: from film to digital; from desktop to laptop; from applications that were once individual, separate islands, to a deeply connected creative universe. Photoshop World has changed quite a bit too, social media connects and informs attendees and shares the experience with those who can’t be there. In many ways, Photoshop World represents the Creative Cloud Photography Plan, as courses are the ultimate boot camp for not only Photoshop, but Lightroom too…and increasingly, the growing body of apps and services which connect them. With more ways to capture images than ever before and a more affordable and flexible inroad to editing, it isn’t a surprise that I meet attendees both older and younger than in years prior – I love that we all have so much in common.

This year, I’m thrilled to teach a combination of my favorite courses. I’ll start with a full session on Photoshop Mix, our free, mobile app which allows you to create powerful composites, wherever you are. Even exploring all of Mix’s hidden tricks, I’m sure to have plenty of extra time, so that’s just some of what I’ll showcase on mobile – there’s a LOT more.

My next course is a deep-dive on the Creative Cloud Photography Plan, not only is this the best deal going, but the offering has grown far beyond just Photoshop+Lightroom.

For many years I’ve taught a course on black & white in Lightroom and Photoshop, this too has expanded to mobile apps and third party solutions.

Last, I’ll teach my favorite course, highlights from the Photoshop Playbook. The Playbook is a year-long series that I recorded, designed to solve problems quickly; with millions and millions of views, it’s proven very popular…this link is both a great preview and resource.

So, as you can imagine, I’m more excited than ever for Photoshop World. I love that so many people are able to enjoy photography and creative imaging. For all that changes, my favorite part about the show is the people…so whether I’m fielding questions for a large group, having a hallway chat or enjoying my breakfast with Scott…the conversations always lead to fixes, features, insights and understanding.

See you in Las Vegas!
