News, Tips and Inspiration

I figured I’d throw a bunch of stuff into one post today. Here goes: Tips Scott Kelby posted an article on his blog about shooting tethered into Lightroom. You’ll definitely want to check it out when you get the chance. Speaking of Mr. Kelby, his Digital Photography Book Volume 2 flew off the shelves at Photoshop World. Before my classes, I could look out and see people reading it right there as if they couldn’t wait...

Friday Tip – PSDs and Drive Space

Here’s one right from my past experience this week. Here’s the story: a few days ago I was trying to free up some drive space on my laptop (I know, this doesn’t happen to anyone else right?).

Friday Tip and Weekend Reading

Once again, I’ve been shown a tip by one of my readers. That’s one of the reasons why I’m really happy that I turned comments on way back. Okay, here’s the tip. I’ve written about the fact that you can hold down Alt/Option and drag on the Exposure and Blacks slider to get a temporary clipping preview. But I never knew you could do the same with the Recovery slider. It sounds silly but it’s kind of...

Friday Stuff

Here’s some quick Lightroom news, websites, inspiration, and yes… one of Matt’s blatant plugs (I know, we haven’t seen one of those in a while). Let’s get started. First up, let’s start off with my blatant plug. I’m ecstatic to report that I held a copy of my newly printed Photoshop Layers book yesterday. See, I wrote this book back in June of 2007. Because of some publishing schedules and a...
