1. If this is your first time to Photoshop World, make sure you:
(a) Watch the series of short videos we did for you to help you get the most out of the event. They're called "Insight" and they’re only a minute or so a piece but you’ll learn a lot. I posted one above, about the party Wednesday night.
(b) Make sure you attend Larry Becker’s first-timers orientation meeting today. You will learn a ton! He teaches it twice today, once at 3:15 pm and again at 5:15. It’s free and open to any attendee (even if it’s not your first time). It's held in the Tradewinds Ballrooms C-D in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
2. Don’t miss the “Meet Up” tonight at 9:00 pm
It's in the lobby bar at the The Renaissance Hotel (attached to the convention center). It's just a fun, casual hangout with the instructors, staff and KelbyOne crew and everyone's invited (see the 45-second video above). There may be liquor involved. I'm just sayin.'
3. You can still come to the Expo
If you just want to check out the Expo floor (and visit some vendors, see Adobe's booth, watch some expo floor classes or live shooting demos, thanks to friends at B&H Photo you can visit the Expo free (see yesterday’s post for times and days).
3. Go download the free App right now
We have a really handy App (for IOS and Android) that has details on pretty much everything (including a full customizable conference schedule). It's free, and you'll totally dig it. Here's the link.
4. These two guys seen here with me are trouble. Trouble I tell ya!
They’re from England (that’s Dave Clayton [Senior Household Steward and Personal Footwear Consultant to Lady Camilla Bowles] on my left, and Photoshop World instructor and British Underground gang member Glyn Dewis on the right), and it’s highly likely at some point during these next few days they’ll wind up in the Fulton Country Jail. If you want to avoid being incarcerated right along with them, don’t get sucked into their world of bangers and mash and just go about your business at the conference. Also, don’t look either directly in the eye. They sense fear. ;-)
5. No Guest Blog Wednesday, but lots of cool photos from PSW!
There's no Guest Blog Wednesday tomorrow as we'll be sharing photos here from Photoshop World, and other conference fun stuff, so check back here to stay on top of any (ahem) announcements at the show. :)
6. No “The Grid” episode tomorrow either
We’re all in Atlanta, including our video crew, so there’s no one to man the store (note the sad, empty Grid set above). We’ll be back next week though, same bat time, same bat channel.
Cheers everybody and let’s rock Atlanta!
Is there a live streamed keynote???
this is the one week of the year I’m sad. I always want to go to the East Coast PSW but can’t because of school schedule. Vegas, here I come. You guys have fun. Teach & Learn a ton!!!
PAINFULLY jelly over here. I hope to make it to Vegas <3 Have a wonderful time, Scott!
Did not realize that Larry Becker was still around.
Wow, I can’t believe I’m here. Having an awesome time that will only get better, I’m sure
Can’t wait till I can come back!
