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).
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).
