Photoshop World 2007

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:

⢠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.

⢠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.

⢠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! :-)

⢠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.

⢠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!!!!

Special Bonus Episode of Photoshop TV

“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

O'ReillyIf 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.

{cs3launch} Our Photo Gallery From Adobe's CS3 Launch Event In New York City

The Photoshop Guys were in New York yesterday at Adobe’s CS3 Launch Event, taping a special bonus episode of Photoshop TV (which is set to air tomorrow) from the launch event, complete with one-one-one interviews with Adobe’s CEO Bruce Chizen and an interview with Adobe’s Senior VP of Creative Solutions Business Unit, John Loiacono (who’ll be doing the Photoshop World keynote next week), among others. But in the meantime, I posted a flickr gallery where you can check out these photos from the event (taken by our man Matt Kloskowski).

Photoshop World 2007

I’m just so excited to announce that for the first time ever, the Photoshop World Conference and Expo is SOLD OUT! We have absolutely shattered our East Coast attendance record and that just shows you the incredible interest in Photoshop CS3, Adobe Lightroom (which both play starring roles at the conference), and the entire Creative Suite (this year we’ve got an entire conference track dedicated to training on the Creative Suite applications, and of course Adobe will be demoing all the new CS3 goodies in their both on the expo floor).

Another thing building buzz for the show are Adobe’s special interest events (added in Boston for the first time ever), which include a special plug-in Developer pavilion, Birds of a Feather meetings for Medical and Scientific Research Professionals, and a Developer’s Kitchen workshop featuring Adobe’s own Photoshop engineers. This brings a whole new dimension to Photoshop World.

TIP: Even though the conference is sold out in advance, we’re still allowing the public onto the Expo Floor for one-day only: Thursday, April 5th, so if you’d like to come and check out all the exhibits (and attend some cool show-floor training sessions), go to the Photoshop World Web site to sign up for your FREE Expo-only pass (if you wait until you get there, the Expo-only pass is $25.00, so you’re better off to sign up free in advance). Hope to see you all in Boston for this record-breaking, history-making event!!!!

I’m pretty darn excited to announce that I’m kicking off a Nationwide U.S. Lightroom tour, starting next month, where I’ll be teaching “The New Digital Photography Workflow” using Lightroom and Photoshop. If you’re a pro photographer, or a serious shooter, then this day was designed from the ground-up for you, and you’re going to see everything done step-by-step, from start to finish. I begin each seminar with a live in-class portrait shoot, using a full studio lighting set-up (you’ll get all the details), and I take you through each step from initial shoot, through sorting, developing, presenting the proofs to the client, and even outputting the final prints live in class. The tour is sponsored by Adobe, Westcott, and Epson, and is produced by NAPP. We’re adding more cities, but the first cities, dates, and a full class schedule is now online at PhotoshopSeminars.com I hope to see you on one of my stops, because this day will change the way you work with Photoshop and digital photographey from that day forward. You’re going to learn a lot, and we’re going to have a blast! See you there. (Note: don’t miss the Friday wrap-up post, which follows this post below).
