Photoshop World
Today is the last day to register online for Photoshop World! But that doesn’t mean you can’t come to the event and register in person. It’s not too late to get your Pro Pass upgrade, sign up for a pre-conference workshop, or snag an After Hours Party Ticket for an evening of fun at House of Blues.

You can also grab your FREE Photoshop World Expo pass right here! Come check out bonus classes from people like Dave Black, Jeremy Cowart, Jack Reznicki and get your hands on the latest gear from Wacom, Westcott, and Manfrotto in between seeing demos from Adobe, Nik, and OnOne.

And if you’re already registered, make sure you download the Photoshop World App (iOS | Android) to create your own custom schedule and keep up with all the latest news. And check out the Photoshop World Blog to grab the 2012 Insider’s Guide!

I’ve heard that there are still some rooms available at Mandalay Bay, so book one of those while you can and stay where the instructors stay!

Photoshop Hall Of Fame
One of the big announcements that always happens at Photoshop World is the newest inductee into the Photoshop Hall of Fame. A brand new website that’s dedicated to this has been launched, just in time for the announcement of the 2012 inductee at next week’s conference in Las Vegas! Head over to to see everyone who is part of this very exclusive club.

Kelby Training
Shooting Fall Landscapes, the latest class from Moose Peterson, has just been added to the ever-growing library of classes on Kelby Training! Go with Moose to the Eastern Sierras and watch as he shares his decades and decades (and decades ;-) ) of wisdom with you as he creates stunning images of fall color. Once the images have been have been captured, Moose will then take you into the digital darkroom and show you how to finish them.
