Two Upcoming Lightroom 5 and Printing Workshops in Long Island, New York, and special offers that end on Mon. 9/9

Hello and happy almost end of Summer! The very cold weather is not something I’m looking forward to, but that’s for another blog post and season! It’s been a while since I’ve announced my workshops here on ImagingBuffet.com (I often announce them on my Facebook Page at facebook.com/andrewdarlow and on Twitter at twitter.com/andrewdarlow if you’d like to connect).

Even though I mentioned it on Facebook and Twitter, I wanted to make sure that I tell everyone here about the “early bird” offers that will expire at midnight tonight for two of my upcoming workshops in Long Island, New York on Sat/Sun November 9 and 10, 2013. I’ve been doing similar workshops on Lightroom and Printing for many years, and I look forward to sharing many of the new tools and features that can be found in Adobe’s Lightroom 5, as well as many of my “tried and true” printing and “screen to print” color matching secrets. If you are unsure at this time whether you are free on either of those dates, there’s no risk because  a 100% refund is given for cancellations made by 10/10/2013 (50% by 11/3 or 11/4 depending on which workshop you reserve).

In this photo, I’m demonstrating a few things things during a full-day workshop in New Jersey: the look and feel of a specific inkjet-printable canvas material mounted on an easy-to-assemble stretcher bar kit; and the importance of lighting in a gallery, home, etc.

In this image, I’m demonstrating the differences between two different inkjet papers during a full-day workshop in New Jersey. I’m also demonstrating the value of using a standard calibration image for print testing.


Monday, 9/9 is the last day to save over 20% on my 2.5 hr. workshop: “Lightroom Printing Techniques for In-Home/In-Studio & Pro Lab Printers” being held from 2-4:30pm on 11/9/2013. See the link below for a full description or to register: https://www.longislandphotogallery.com/proddetail.php?prod=2013-DARLOW1

and Monday, 9/9 is also the last day to save $20 on my upcoming full-day workshop: “Using Lightroom for Inkjet Printing and Color Management,” at the same location in Long Island on Sunday 11/10/2013.

Facebook Improves Timeline Post Viewing on Facebook Pages

I woke up this morning, posted something to my Facebook Business Page, and was happily surprised. After expressing my thoughts on Facebook and some blogs about a little blue box that would “hide” recent content on my Page (see screen shot below), all of my recent posts and images that I now see on my Page are lining up nicely, and all older stories are loading nicely as I scroll down the page. Hooray! This is just my observation and your milage may vary. However, I checked a few other Business Pages and they appear to have the same updates and functionality.

This is a screen shot of my original post that expressed my thoughts on the old Facebook Page format:

The previous Facebook Timeline layout would "hide" recent posts behind a small blue button.

The previous Facebook Timeline layout would "hide" recent posts behind a small blue button that read "See More Recent Stories.".

This is important to me (and I would guess many others), because it was so easy to just skip over that little blue box, thus missing out on many stories, links, etc. from the recent past. In essence, the old approach made me feel as though I was wasting my time sharing information about which I was passionate.

Thanks Facebook. I’d like to think I was part of this decision, but it really doesn’t matter who gets credit for it (maybe Mark Zuckerberg has me on his “must read list.”) This may just inspire me to upgrade my personal page to the Timeline format. But wait, I may not have a choice, as per this Techcrunch article.

If you’d like to see what I’m seeing now on Facebook Fan/Business pages, feel free to visit my Page. My Facebook Photo and Printing Tips Page has over 1000 posts on the topics of Photo and Printing Tips, links to images that impress me, photos from events I attend, and more. You can find it here: https://facebook.com/andrewdarlow.
