Recent audio podcast tip on

tmup_album_200.jpgI recently contributed an audio tip segment to the Typical Mac User Podcast. The tip covers printing in Apple OSX (Tiger and Leopard) and the main item I cover is how to save print presets in OSX. The whole show is very informative, but if you’d like to go right to my audio, you can click on the play button at the top, wait a little while for it to load, and then move the scroll bar to 23 minutes in.

Here’s a link to the podcast.

And here’s a link to a previous show in which I spoke about color management.

I think that the website is a fantastic resource, filled with helpful information for Mac, iPod and iPhone users. Enjoy the shows!

Photoshop CS3 Power Tour in New York City-11/6/2007

Scott Kelby will be returning to New York City on Tuesday 11/6/2007 for the Photoshop CS3 Power Tour. I’ve attended many of Scott’s sessions, and I’ve always learned valuable tips and tricks. He is a fantastic presenter, and based on the schedule of topics, it looks to be a great day of Photoshop learning.

Here is an outline of the main topics that will be covered throughout the day:

Digital Photo Correction Secrets
Photoshop “Photo-Finishing” Techniques
Yet Even More Down & Dirty Tricks

How to Show Your Work Like a Pro

Photo Tips Worth a Look from Derrick Story

As you can tell from my last post about Adorama’s 100 photo tips in 100 days, I love reading tips from other photographers. Some of the best tips I’ve highlighted in the past have been from Derrick Story, and I just came across this great compilation of tips that Derrick has shared with his audience on his excellent blog and podcast, The Digital Story. The tips range from how to protect your camera in the rain with an inexpensive accessory, to how to use iPhoto, Aperture or Photoshop CS3 more effectively. Most are Derrick’s tips, but some are tips that Derrick credits to other photographers and/or magazines. You can find the 50 specific tips on this page. Most importantly, I think the tips just might entice you to grab the nearest camera and do some phototography. Enjoy!
