My Lightroom book is finally (finally!) hitting books stores this week. Peachpit had copies for sale at Photoshop World last week, and although Amazon.com sent out an auto-email saying it wouldn’t be in stock until June, it was just one of those crazy “email bot things” and they’ll actually have it any day now (I guess they’re working on sending out a “it’s on its way” bot email maybe as soon as today). So, thanks to everybody who pre-ordered the book (we had record-breaking pre-orders). If you haven’t seen the book yet, you can get a cool interactive look at the layout and feel by going to this site, and checking out this really slick Flash-based look inside the book (a shot of which is shown above). My thanks to Nancy Ruenzel, Scott Cowlin, and everybody at Peachpit Press who worked so hard to make this new book a reality. Way to go!!!! :-)
I had all these plans to be posting all sorts of show coverage from Photoshop World, really giving loads of coverage, but I have been just running around like crazy. I’ve only got one session today (my brand new “Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks 2007” session), so hopefully I can get a few shots or posts up. Here’s a few quick things in the meantime:
â¢ My buddy (and Photoshop TV co-host), Dave Cross had the coolest thing happen yesterday: OnOne Software announced immediate availability of the “Dave Cross Digital Frame Collection,” which adds more than 20 professionally designed frame edges to OnOne’s popular PhotoFrame Pro edge plug-in for Photoshop. Read the full scoop at OnOne’s site.
â¢ We taped a Live episode of Photoshop TV from the Expo Floor yesterday, and we really had a blast. The episode will air on Monday.
â¢ My Lightroom Book is here! Peachpit Press was selling them yesterday in the Expo Bookstore, and I was really psyched to see it! It should be in bookstores any day now! :-)
â¢ Yesterday’s Keynote from Adobe was just amazing. I hope to have some photos and more info later today, but it totally energized the standing-room-only crowd! It was the first in-depth look at Photoshop CS3 Extended–plus they showed some new technology that pretty much blew everybody away. More on this soon.
â¢ Lots more to report, both about Photoshop World and about other things in the industry, so hopefully I’ll get a chance to post more, but I’ve got to get to class, so have a great day everybody!!!!
“The Photoshop Guys” take you live On Location to Adobe’s CS3 Launch Event in New York City (held earlier this week), in a special bonus episode of Photoshop TV. It features a look at the sights and sounds of this amazing event, plus we were honored to have one-one-one interviews with Adobe’s CEO Bruce Chizen, and Adobe’s VP of their Creative Solutions Business Unit, John Loiacono (who’s also the featured keynote speaker at Photoshop World Boston next week!). You can watch this episode right now online at http://www.photoshoptv.com
If you were thinking of taking us up on that offer of a FREE Expo-only pass at Photoshop World in Boston next Thursday, here’s another reason to come: O’Reilly Publishing is hosting a series of free Photoshop sessions at their booth on the show floor, featuring some of the leading Photoshop authors, including Photoshop Hall of Famers Deke McClelland, Katrine Eismann, and Eddie Tapp, along with authors Derek Story, and Peter Krogh. You can find O’Reilly’s class schedule by clicking here, and you can get your FREE Expo pass at the Photoshop World Web site.
