Camera Raw 6.1 is Here, too!
Earlier in the week Adobe released the latest version of Camera Raw (version 6.1) for Photoshop CS5 users. It’s been on Adobe labs for a while, kind of marinating in testing mode, but now it’s fully baked and ready for downloading (you can use the built-in updater inside Photoshop CS5—go under the Help menu and choose Updates), or go to Adobe’s Website and download it here (Mac | Windows )

Supreme Makeover Contest
MacMall has got a really clever (and really sweet) contest that can re-equip your Large or Small studio with up to $17,000 of really juicy gear (Including CS5, of course). You gotta check his out (here’s the link).

My Moab Workshop is Sold Out
I found out on Wednesday that my Moab workshop with Bill Fortney (the one I mentioned here on Tuesday) had sold out the same day we announced it. Thanks everybody for helping me spread the word about the workshop, and for those of you who signed on (30 or so of you), I can’t wait to meet you all in person, and to go shooting together!

CS5 In The City
On Monday I announced that we’re hosting the Photoshop CS5 Summit in New York City, and by the end of the day we had nearly 1,000 people already registered (of course, it helped that we let NAPP members have the first crack at tickets), but if you want to be there with me, Matt, Dave, Corey and RC for an incredible of night, where we’ll show you how to work CS5 into your existing Photoshop workflow, make sure you reserve your free seat right this minute (before it’s too late). When you hear it about it afterward, you’ll wish you were there. (Here’s the link to save your seat).

The Topaz Bundle goes CS5, and 64-bit Compatible
Like many of you, I use plug-ins from Topaz, and many of you have been asking if they’re going to update their plug-ins for CS5, and when and if they’re going to be 64-bit compatible. Good news—it’s yes and yes. Here’s the link.

McNally Takes New York
It’s gonna be a hot summer in The City, as Joe McNally is back with a series of one day workshops in New York, and I can tell you two things: (1) It will be a day of learning and laughing you’ll never forget, taught by literally the best guy in the business, and (2) All of his workshops will be sold out way, way, way in advance. You’ve always wanted to learn from him in person. Now you can. Here’s the link with all the details (from Joe’s blog).

Have a Great Thursday Everybody!
I’m kickin’ off a new tour tomorrow—hope you’ll stop by catch all the details. Have a great Thursday gang!

  1. Scott,
    While your’e here in Utah, I wonder what it would take to get you up to northern utah for a seminar…? We’d fill the house if you came to the new Marriot Conference Center in Logan!


  2. I have registered for the NYC event, did not receive any emails. Can I confirm in any way.


  3. Scott, I have been using the 6.1 beta and its great! Where do we sign up for the workshops in Vegas? I can’t find the application at PSW.com.

  4. Scott, have you seen the news of the Ipad hack. Goohl the Ipad 36 hacking and you will see how 114000 ipads are vunerable to hack. You can also read about it on Valleywag.

  5. 1. Check your email for a Kelby Training book extra, its a mystery to me.
    2. McNally’s pearls of wisdom are subtle but hit you like a Celtic forward when you drive the lane. Well worth the admission.
    3. Thanks to my anti-virus checker, it took an extra 45 minutes to finish the CS5 PS 1g download. Hint: read the download instruction pdf.
    4. Still waiting for this week’s Photoshop TV download.

  6. Good for Topaz. Now, when is NIK going to be 64 bit compatible?

  7. Hey, Scott,
    Have you tried to run the Topaz Bundle in Lightroom 3 for Mac? I have been unable to get it to run, and haven’t found anything on the Topaz Labs site to help answer the question.
    Also, you didn’t mention that to run CS5 on Mac, you have to run it in 32 bit.

    Thanks for any insight on this problem.

  8. Hi Scott,

    What happened to your alltop-page?????
    I used to check it a couple of times a day and now it’s gone????

    Hope it will soon be up again.

    Greetings, Marco

  9. Moab is going to be a fun ride. Can’t wait to see you again Scott!

  10. Contest for makeover is not for individuals. Boooo.

  11. Dave Cross visited Toronto Today and did a whole day on CS5. The place was packed and I have to say it was one of the best days of learning I’ve had from NAPP.
    I learned techniques that not only expand my knowledge in post, but also we really learned how to record actions which I thought was just brilliant.
    The day flew by.
    So thanks for bringing Kelby Training to Canada.
    Why not skip the northeast US and do a PS world in Toronto?
    Lots of international photogs would come and it’s a great city.
    There would be a ton of places to run a Photo Safari.
    Think about it for one year.

  12. Thank you Scott,
    I downloaded the new Camera Raw. Learned how to check for updates in CS5, and found that Bridge had a small update too.
