I’m Giving Away Five Copies of My New Photoshop CC Book (and here’s a handy LR shortcut, too!)

Hi gang – and happy Thursday! My new “Photoshop CC Book for Digital Photographers” is on-press and it will be shipping shortly (you can actually pre-order it right now from Amazon and be among the first to receive it). To celebrate the launch of the new book, I thought I’d give away FIVE free copies to some folks here on Lightroom Killer Tips.ย But first, watch my official book trailer aboveย (it’s only like 55-seconds):

Just leave a comment here and you’re entered for the giveaway. We’ll pick a winner tomorrow (this is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Note: it is the English-language version, but if you’re reading this blog, I’m guessing reading English is probably not a problem). ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s the link if you want to ensure you’ll get a copy by preordering it from Amazon. It will be available in Print and eBook formats.

OK, how about a Lightroom keyboard shortcut?
Sure!ย Here’s one of my favorites, and I use it literally every day: Shift-Tab. That simple shortcut hides all the top, bottom and side panels and just shows your image on screen, uncluttered on a gray background, without going all the way in to “full screen” mode. To get your panels back; press Shift-Tab again. Easy peasy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you have a great Thursday, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow.

    The first of your books I bought and used was “Classic Photoshop Effects” First Edition 2004. I think an update of that classic would sell great in 2017. How about it? I know I would buy it!!!

    I’ve been using Scott Kelby’s books on both CC and LR for years and they have helped me improve my work and work flow.

    Need this! I’m a LR pro, but Photoshop is a scary mystery, especially the newer versions. Thanks, and have a great book launch!

    I see I’m a day late but I’ll still add a comment of support, Kelby books and videos are the best! I’ll just add this one to my Christmas list!

    Really high on my which list. I bought the last one too, but the binding was not strong enough to cope with a heavy book like this.It was only meant to look good in the bookshelf. I spent quite some money on a new wiro binding to make it a book for use. Hope the new book is much better. I love the books from Kelby.

    Congrats on finishing another book! Now I have a new project for you: write a book on photography for beginners. Kinda like your handbooks but with less flash and more composition and theory slipped in with that painless technique you have. And do it fast! I’m scheduled to show a 13-year-old how to use her new Rebel T6 she’s getting for Christmas and even my eyes glaze over when I think how I’m going to explain stuff.

    This would be perfect right about now. Scott your books are always very informative and entertaining. Not your typical overly technical I can’t sleep so let me grab the 10,000 page photoshop book :O

    Everything I know about Lightroom and most of Photoshop (especially the useful stuff) I learned from you, Scott Kelby! Thank you for writing amazing books!

    Can’t wait for it to come out. I have been using your older books CS2 and CS5. CC is fantastic, just so hard to keep up with the changes.

    What a wonderful Christmas Gift this would make, for all those aspiring Photoshop uses (like me, hint hint). I have a couple Lightroom Kelby books at home, and I find them both extremely educational and fun!

    Sadly is that taxation is extremely high when you order items from USA and buy outside Denmark, I think skipping this book, although I already bought some your books to double price incl. tax. But it it send as a gift … there is no tax

    I am so looking forward to this one Scott. I have purchased a number of your books over the years (Elements, Lightroom, DP Books 1,2,3 etc) and I can assure you they are all pretty dog eared from being read by family and friends. There is no doubt you have made a difference to us here in Brisbane, Australia.

    As with your other books, The Photoshop CC book would be an awesome tool to someone becoming a more experienced with photoshop.

      Hi there from Sunny South Africa. Would love to win you latest book. I have basically self taught myself on Photoshop using you-tube and watching the Kelby One videos. I don’t think we in South Africa are able to order from Amazon as delivery seems to be a problem to SA. Therefore this would make it sooo much easier to get my hands on your new book. Take care and have a great day!

    I’ve enjoyed your books in the past and would love a copy of the new one. I’ve been using LR for a couple of years now, but am just starting to branch into Photoshop, and this would be a great way to get started.

Yeah, like everyone else, I too have all your other books and will gladly buy another bookcase to put this one in. How do you find the time to do these books and all the other stuff too?

    Have read almost all your books on PS/LR for Photographers since CS2 and LR4 and have learned a lot. Have passed on older versions of the books to friends when I bought the newer editions for the new app versions and they have enjoyed them too. (sorry if you lost sales there, hopefully they also saw how good the books are and bought the newer ones..)

    Would be great to continue the streak with this new version as I have recently upgraded from CS6 to PS/LR CC package. Keep up the great work!

      I need that book so badly! I purchased a subscription to Adobe that includes lightroom and photoshop, and been learning LR bit by bit, but never touched PS yet because I find it very daunting. I can say my post processing improved using only LR because it is relatively easy to use, but I still wonder of it could improve more with a little PS. It would be exciting!

    After suffering a stroke recently I am finding it easier to learn from a book than online video material. This would be just what I need right now. I still enjoy watching Scott’s videos but I struggle to retain the info anymore.

    I’m determined that, one way or another, I will learn how to use Photoshop properly.

Have enjoyed reading and challenging myself using the tips described in the books. This new edition would just add another new learning curve.
