I’m gearing up for Photoshop World next week. In the meantime, here’s a few links and what-not to keep you busy. Have a great weekend:

• Word on the street is that Scott Kelby rocked! his first (and sold out) Light it, Shoot it, Retouch It seminar yesterday. Congrats to Scott. Make sure you sign up quickly for the next few tours (Indianapolis, Minneapolis, and Chicago) if you want to snag a seat.

• Jason Lykins did a review of my first app done with Kelby Training. The app is called the Photoshop CS5 Crash course and it’s basically a Photoshop beginners training video in app form. You can read the review on Terry White’s Best App Site here.

• Speaking of apps, our buddy Rick Sammon has a new HDR app to check out.

• I guess I’m really app happy today. Check out the upcoming iPad app Photosmith (The mobile companion to Lightroom).

• The folks at ExpoImaging continue to put out some of the best flash modifiers out there. I just got a look at the new Rogue Grid. If you’ve used the Rogue Flashbenders before, then you’ll love this one.

• In case you hadn’t heard, Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 is out (and available for Lightroom). Here’s the link.

• Back in February, I did an interview with Digital Photo Experience on photography, Photoshop and Lightroom. Here’s the link.

• Russell Brown has a great script for automatically opening a layer from Photoshop into Camera Raw. Very cool!
