Join Me for a Free Photoshop CS6 for Photographers Webcast Today

First off, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who came out to my Lightroom 4 Live seminar in Minneapolis yesterday. There were almost 350 photographers there. We had a great crowd, lots of laughs and everyone I spoke to seemed to learn a lot throughout the day (in spite of my poor drinking habits – sorry inside joke… you had to be there – and no, it has nothing to do with alcohol) :)
If you’re in LA or Chicago, you can still sign up for seminars this week (Thursday in LA and Monday in Chicago).

In other news, Adobe officially announced CS6 yesterday. In celebration of the announcement, the Photoshop Guys over at NAPP are doing some free live webcasts called 6 Days of CS6. It started yesterday and continues throughout the week (schedule is below). I’ll be on today with a free webcast that goes over Photoshop CS6′s new features for photographers. I’m traveling the rest of the week doing more Lightroom seminars, but you can catch the guys doing webcasts all week. Here’s the schedule and I hope you’ll be able to join us.

  • Have missed something, isnt this supposed to be a Lightroom Blog

    • It is but I also teach and use Photoshop (as do most Lightroom users). So hopefully you’re okay with me letting you know when I have something Photoshop-related going on. You can always ignore it if it really bugs you that much ;)

      • I find that a lot of photographers want to move away from Photoshop….Journalist ethics and all of a original base photo, with some darkroom like adjustments…..and not to mention the additoinal cost of Photoshop ….LR is on the right track as a stand alone program…

  • The Minneapolis Lightroom seminar was awesome! I would definitely recommend going, especially if you’re on the fence about upgrading to LR4. Matt did a great job of answering questions and making the day interesting and informative with opportunities to laugh rather than dull and overly technical.

    • Thanks Amy!!! :)

      • It’s already 1:30am and I’m still at this new soratwfe. The ADOBE TV videos are worth the time to get quick ideas about what needs to be explored in this BETA.Initially I am very interested in looking tomorrow (and having several others look) at prints from the 50 photos I’m playing with this evening. ACR has been altered/modified/updated to improve rendering. So far it looks good in most cases on the screen.The radically changed input interface will require play time’ to see if it all works well together. There is now a browser type interface, but it is very LR in implementation. Far better control over what to import and how.More tomorrow, or later today.

  • Hi Matt

    Been away on business, missed day1 & 2. Will there be a a way of catching up on them.

    Thanks

    Tony

    • Hey Tony,
      Yep. They’re all replayed for free on Saturday and then they’ll also be available on the NAPP member website after that.

      • I missed Scott when he gave his Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It sneimar in Toronto, Canada this past July.So I did the next best thing and purchased a copy of his Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It book a week ago, and I must say, as with all Kelby Media and NAPP books its another excellent read and resource with much valued material!What I enjoy most is the post-processing and retouching techniques. I’ve used some post it notes as tabs, to refer to some specific sections. A fine example is Page 159 when using the Quick Selection tool there’s an excellent description about how to use the Refine Edge button in PS-CS5 with the Smart Radius tool, to get all the single strands of hairs when you copy and paste an image to create a composite image. I can use these techniques for other areas too!Lots and lots of excellent tips! Thanks for a great book guys!Cheers,Frederic in Montre9al.

  • I really enjoyed your seminar in Minneapolis! It’s the first time I’ve attended one of your seminars. Very informative and great tips I’ve already put to use! Look forward to attending more in the future! :)

  • What about this? LR 4.1…. nothing really on the upgrade area of the adobe :http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/lightroom4-1.html

  • Matt, see you in Chicago! I am really looking forward to it, especially since the first digital photography seminar I ever atended was your LR2 LIVE Tour seminar … in the same location quite a while ago …

    • Great Stu! Make sure you come up and say hi. See you tomorrow!

  • Tried PS6 Adaptive Wide Angle Filter perspective correction on a raw image captured with my 14-24mm lens on a Nikon D3s, used for real estate interior photos. PS6 distorted the image more than the original, with some bowing at the outer verticals. Didn’t work for me. Am I missing something??

  • There is one very easy solution to all this – FREE remote desktop software Ammyy Admin
    http://www.ammyy.com/en/admin_overview.html

    Works well, doesn’t require installation or specific config, works behind gateways NAT as well as within one LAN.

    Good alternative though!

  • Woo Hoo! The Bradster is back with the Pimpyness! Glad to see you posting again, Brad. There was only so much more I could take of Pete and Matt siningg, It’s Pimpy, It’s Thursday . (Just kidding!)Can’t wait for Ben’s class in Boston. It should be great. John
