- Congrats to Scott Kelby & his whole crew on the launch of their new video training subscription service. It looks like a terrific resource for the design & photography community. Annual subscriptions cost $199 ($179 for NAPP members), or you can pay $19.95 a month ($17.99/mo. for NAPP members). Previously, Scott writes, "Our online classes used to be around $70.00 each." Check out Scott’s blog post for all the details.
- Photographer and Photoshop/Lightroom expert Ian Lyons has posted a wealth of info on the subject of printing from Lightroom on OS X Leopard.
- Design a video game cover, win fame and prizes. That’s the promise of PhotoshopCAFE’s 8th annual design challenge. Organizer Colin Smith writes, "This is possibly the largest and longest running design contest on the web.
By the time we are done the prize pool will total somewhere above $12,000 in prizes. Best of all, it’s all for fun. There is no entry fees and no one makes a penny (except the winners). It’s a true community event." You can also check out last year’s winners & finalists.
Speaking of Photoshop contests, I groaned while watching Die Hard 4 last night and said to my wife, "Man, they must have been feeding the screenwriters ‘Preposteroni, the Pasta for Hacks.’" I was all proud of my little funny, but upon Googling the term I found that, yep, someone already thought of it–and amidst a Photoshop contest, and on my birthday, no less. ;-P
