Here’s a few news tidbits and links for you:

• Some of you may remember my post when I asked for your thoughts on sharpening in Photoshop and Lightroom. Well, as much as I wanted to get that class done right away, several other things (books, etc…) got in the way. I’m happy to say that I recorded the last part of the class this week and it should be up early next week on There’s a few stories to this one which I’ll post about next week. I did incorporate A LOT of your feedback too (again more on it next week). I’m still not sure of the title. I’m thinking something catchy like “Tack Sharp! in Photoshop and Lightroom” or “Mastering Sharpening in Photoshop” or some combination of the two. If you have a vote (or any other ideas) please post a comment 🙂 Here’s a quick screen capture of the lesson outline in case you’d like a sneak peak.

• Speaking of books getting in the way ;), my Photoshop CS5 Layers book has been out for a few months now. I’ve started to come across a couple of reviews in case you’ve been holding off on buying it. Here’s one.

• Here’s another from Blogcritics.

• An interesting article on using some text snippet utilities in combination with Lightroom to speed up metadata, copyright and keywording.

• Lens Pro To Go is running a special discount through the end of February. You’ll get 15% off any lens rental. The code is: FEB15

Have a great weekend!
