Tuesday News Stuff
Hi gang: It’s Tuesdays—here’s what’s up:
- My Books On The Free Kindle App For iPhone
I saw a review on Terry’s Tech blog about the new free Amazon Kindle app for the iPhone, so I downloaded it and bought my book, “The Digital Photography Book, Vol. 2” from right on my iPhone (Yes, I had to buy it, but luckily the downloadable version was only $9.99). Anyway, I have the full Kindle reader (the original, not version 2), and while this free iPhone app didn’t have all the features (or as large a screen) as the Kindle, it did have one thing even the Kindle 2 doesn’t have—color images! The formatting on the iPhone’s screen even looked pretty decent (as seen above), and I think the advantage is (for iPhone users anyway), that you can look up a tip while you’re out on a shoot, right from your phone. Anyway, it’s worth checking out (here’s the link to it on the iTunes Store). By the way; the iPhone itself up there isn’t a photo. That’s an illustration created from scratch by NAPP’s Creative Director Felix Nelson, and it’s all done in Photoshop. That guy is just sick!
- I found a Cool Photo Blog with All Unretouched Photos
This past weekend, I came across a photography site called “Unqualified to Blog” and in their tag line they mention that all the photos are unedits straight from the camera (no Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture, etc.). Anyway, the guy has some nice stuff, and I just thought it was kind of different. Here’s the link if you’ve got a sec to check it out.
- Interviewed By My Publisher
I did an audio interview with my Publisher Nancy Reunzel, and it’s up live over at the Peachpit site. We talked about everything from photography to what my upcoming books are for the year, to Photoshop World, and about everything else. If you’ve got a couple of minutes, check it out right here.
- Are You Coming To Boston? Now there are TWO Photo Walks
If you’re coming up to Boston for Photoshop World (Hey, it’s still not to late to join us up there: Here’s the link with all the details), there are now TWO Photo Walks planned; one from Jeff Revell (of PhotoWalkPro fame), and one being put together by a group of NAPP forum members, so if you’re coming, make sure you bring your camera! (check on the NAPP member forums for details on the NAPP walk).
- New Photoshop and Illustrator Integration Online Class from Corey Barker
Photoshop graphics wizard Corey Barker has a brand new online class at Kelby Training about creative ways to use Photoshop and Illustrator together. It just went up and it’s already created quite a buzz. Here’s the link with all the details.
OK gang, that’s it from here. I’ll be back on Thursday with more stuffage! Don’t forget to check out the Guest Blog tomorrow. Have a great one!
