Adjustment Brush is one of my best friends in Lightroom. Still, it looks like I didn’t know all its secrets. Scott Kelby reveals a quick tip for all of you who, like me, didn’t know that you can draw a straight line with the Adjustment Brush. In this video, Scott will show you how in just under a minute.
I have always been a big fan of Scott’s concise, open and honest approach to photography education.
My first Kelby book was the The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book back in 2008 (which I still refer to once in a while) and I regularly follow Scott’s Photoshop Insider blog and catch The Grid when I can.
I’m even more impressed after touring the KelbyOne space and finding out more about what goes on behind the scenes to produce all of that KelbyOne content and Scott’s approach to photography education.
I can’t begin to count the number of times I’ve taken a photo of someone with glasses only to have a reflection ruin the shot.
Adobe’s next version of the popular editing and cataloguing software will finally be released tomorrow.
There have been several expected release dates in the past due to product pages launched on various retailer websites, but this time it’s a done deal.
The only question is, will there be a boxed version?
I posed a question to the DIY writing staff last week. I was wondering how many of them still read hard-copy photography magazines, and if so, I wanted to know if they subscribe or just purchase the occasional issue. It’s something I’ve been curious about for a while. After all, when you think about just how much information is out there and readily available, you almost have to wonder how traditional magazines are still making a go of it. The results of my informal survey were a bit underwhelming, but it was as I suspected– most people simply don’t subscribe to traditional magazines anymore. I still get a few, but then again, I also remember a pre-internet world where you had to put forth some effort and seek out knowledge and information.
The reality is, however, that while traditional magazines may no longer have the same widespread appeal they once had in the photography community, the same cannot be said for books on the subject. Again, I’m not talking about e-books or any other electronic conveyance. I’m talking about an actual collection of pages, all bound together in a single unit, containing all kinds of useful information and insight. It’s something I can hold in my hands. I can highlight it and bookmark it. Flip back and forth between sections. Compare and contrast different chapters without having to swipe, scroll, pinch, or flick my wrist for anything other than turning pages.
