Matt Kloskowski and RC Concepcion will be your hosts for this free event.
RSVP here and we’ll send you a reminder, AND you’ll be entered into a random drawing for these prizes:
- One-Year Subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud
- Scott Kelby's Digital Photography Library Bundle & Slipcase
- One-Year Membership to NAPP
- $25 Gift Certificate to the NAPP Store
See you today at 3:30PM ET!
Win a NAPP Membership!
If you use Photoshop and you’re not in the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), you’re missing out on some KILLER CS6 tutorials along with other key information about how to make the most out of Photoshop in photography, design and illustration. Plus Scott Kelby is the President of NAPP, so you know it’s a cool organization to join! :-) Leave a comment to win a one-year membership to NAPP for you and one for an active duty U.S. service man or woman or a retired member of the military. If you don’t win and you want to join NAPP now, here’s how you can get 2 extra months added onto your one-year membership free: use code SOCIAL1 when you checkout online.
Win a Copy of Scott’s new Lightroom 4 Book!
Leave a comment to win a copy of the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Book for Digital Photographers. This book will have you up to speed with everything that’s new in Lightroom 4 and it will also show you how to create your own efficient workflow in Lightroom. As always, if you don’t win it you can buy it here. It just arrived in the warehouse this week so get ’em while they’re hot!
Win Matt’s CS6 DVD
Who’s taken the plunge and upgraded to CS6? If so, Matt Kloskowski has a killer DVD out in a week or so that shows you all of the coolest new features â” it’s called What’s New in Adobe Photoshop CS6. Win it here before you can buy it and we’ll ship it to you the first day it arrives! Leave a comment and we’ll pick 2 lucky people. If you don’t win and you still want to have Matt at your workstation* showing you the ins and outs of CS6, just order your copy here. *You can win a copy of Matt’s DVD, not Matt.
Since I skipped last Thursday’s post, there are a bunch of new classes on Kelby Training to let you all know about!
First, Ben Willmore has two new classes on Mastering Curves: Correcting Color and Adjusting Tonality.
Next up is RC Concepcion with an introductory class on Adobe’s latest creation, the Creative Cloud.
And, last but certainly not least, is Jerry Ghionis with Perfect Posing Techniques for Wedding Photographers! Of course, a lot of the techniques in this class are applicable to any portrait situation, not just weddings. If you have people in front of your camera, this is definitely one to watch!
