Sure, the training is excellent! But, the best thing about Photoshop World is the people. These people are not only talented, intelligent, and passionate but they’re also one of the nicest groups of people to work with anywhere. You get this feeling everyone here: with the instructors, the staff, and the attendees. The folks at NAPP are an exceptional organization, not just professional, but personal. I told Scott Kelby how impressed I was with this when he welcomed me to my first Photoshop World. His response said it all, “They’re not customers; they’re members.” The sense of community is very strong here.

Adobe announced today  that CS Next is coming soon.
What’s Next? John Loiacono highlighted three key concepts that characterize the new release. Timesavers (real speed increases), Integration (transparently with Macromedia products), and Cutting Edge (daring new features).
Sign up for advance notice on upcoming announcements 9-23-08 here.

For me one of the most interesting things at Photoshop World is the keynote address. Adobe always unveils new technology / features that are either soon to be released or might be slated for future release at a later date. You get futurecasting about new possibilities in photography based on what’s actually in development now. It’s these presentations that make me feel like I’m truly in the 21st century.

John Loiacono and John Nack did a great job this morning. Their presentations were so smooth it was almost easy to overlook that what they were showing you were radical new ways of making photographic images. A tsunami seemed like a gentle wave. This may have helped many of us overcome a feeling akin to vertigo as we watched our photographic world change before your eyes.

1    Adobe’s free online service PhotoshopExpress soon to be compatible with mobile devices – store, share, adjust your images online – free … think Facebook meets PS
2    Configurator – a soon to be release utility that lets you customize and share your PS interface
3    ultrahigh resolution (multi-gigabyte) stitches with zooming capabilities – zoom into any part of an image and reveal amazing detail you couldn’t see with the naked eye
4    context sensitive scaling – scale an image without distorting key image areas
5    360 degree stitched panoramas that can be easily retouched or even rendered as a globe
6    paint directly on 3D renderings
7    super-fast preview and rendering of filters

Congratulations to today’s Photoshop Hall of Fame Inductees – John Nack and Martin Evening!

Everyone had a good time at the Epson Print Academy today. We always do.

This special half day version of the Epson Print Academy Track Two for Photoshop World runs lean and fast with fantastic content by Photoshop Hall of Fame Inductees – Andrew Rodney, Jeff Schewe, and John Paul Caponigro.

Rodney         Color Management
Schewe         Image Optimization
Rodney         Printing to an Epson Printer
Schewe         Advanced Black and White
Caponigro    Fine Art Printing – Performance Printing & The Art of Proofing

The handouts (for attendees only) are phenomenal. They’re electronic! So they’re green (no wasted paper), accessible anywhere, portable, with no limit to length, able to accomodate many file types (text, images, actions), and frequently updated. After you attend, you can always get the latest versions.

But wait, there’s more! Bonus prizes are often given to a few lucky attendees, like prints by Schewe, posters and DVDs by Caponigro … sometimes printers are even given away.

If you were there, tell us about it. Comment!

The Epson Print Academy is gearing up for a national tour again.

Stay tuned for important announcements at the end of the month.

I’ve started an experiment.
Here’s the idea.
1 – Invite movers and shakers at Photoshop World (link) with blogs to make one short post a day during the event highlighting something that excited them that day.
2 – Invite those movers and shakers to invite other movers and shakers to join.
3 – Invite attendees to participate by commenting on the movers and shakers posts and include links to their blogs in their comments. Yes. If you’re at Photoshop World, you’re invited to post and link from your comments on any of the posts from the list of blogs below.

Photoshop World is so jam packed its impossible for any one person to do (or grok) it all. The diversity of experience and perspective collected here should be very exciting. Let’s see how long the list grows.
