Upcoming Half Day Lightroom 4 Workshop in NJ with Andrew Darlow

For more than two years I’ve been teaching photographers and other artists how to get the most from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, including editing, organizing, presenting and printing images using the application. It’s a very powerful tool, but it definitely takes time to learn, and Lightroom 4 brings with it many new features and a new processing engine.

In the upcoming weeks and months I will be teaching some Lightroom workshops in New Jersey. Here are some details and a link to more info on one of them. I will post information on some others as they get closer (my workshop/events page will generally have all of them listed):

Class Title: LIGHTROOM 4 WORKFLOWS: How to Organize, Retouch and Print Your Images

Location: duCret School of Art, Plainfield, NJ

Date: Sat. April 7, 2012
Time: 10AM-2PM

Fee: $50 ($39 for those who register by April 4)

A full description and online registration information is available here: https://lr47.eventbrite.com/

To show an example of what I’ll be covering, this particular image will be shown step-by-step from raw capture to the final edited image. I think it shows what’s possible when you use Lightroom’s Develop Module to recover highlight data and use the application’s selective adjustment options:

Adobe Announces Photoshop CS6 Beta (Now Available for Download) Plus Video and Web Links

Many (including me) have been anticipating the release of Photoshop CS6, and it has officially arrived as Photoshop CS6 Beta. That means you can download it for free from this link on Adobe’s website (the download is 984 MB for the Mac OS, and 1.7 GB for Windows). There are quite a few new features, as well as a new interface (that came as quite a surprise to me, and I’m slowly getting used to it). This important note about the Beta from Adobe’s site is worth highlighting:

Photoshop CS6 beta includes all the features in Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CS6 Extended. Take this opportunity to try out the 3D image editing and quantitative image analysis capabilities of Photoshop Extended*, but note that—while these features will be included in the shipping version of Photoshop CS6 Extended—they will not be included in the shipping version of Photoshop CS6.

Until I have more time with the Beta, I thought I’d share some impressive videos and helpful links to more information about it. First, below is a fantastic 10 minute video by Russell Brown of Adobe, who covers six new features of PSCS6:

Next, is this page with great information (including videos and screen shots) on Photoshop CS6 Beta by Colin Smith of PhotoshopCAFE.

And last for now is NAPP’s excellent coverage of Photoshop CS6 Beta (free for members or non-members of NAPP):

What surprised me most about Photoshop CS6 Beta? The video capabilities. Russell Brown’s video shows a quick overview, and I’m guessing you’ll be surprised as well when you see what’s inside.

And while you’re learning more about Photoshop, I have a number of Lightroom 4-related workshops coming soon in New Jersey and New York City. Links for full descriptions and registration information can be found below:

Adobe Lightroom 3 Available for Just $79 Today at Adorama.com

I just came across this offer and wanted to share it with you. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 (Full Edition, not the Student/Teacher Edition) is available today only (2/14/2012) for $79 at Adorama.com. Lightroom 4 will probably be released sometime in the upcoming 8 weeks or so, but if you don’t have a full edition, you will need to pay for a full version. I assume any full edition of Lightroom to date (LR1, LR2 or LR3) will be eligible for the upgrade price, but I don’t know that for a fact. Having a full edition allows you to upgrade for less than the application’s retail price. In the past (as shown in the screen shot below from the Adobe Store), the upgrade from LR1 to LR3 and LR2 to LR3 has been $99 (it may be less elsewhere). It is both Mac and Windows compatible.
