Presets – Spring Color, Flare & Haze

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,...
