You’re Invited: Live Q&A Webcast Latest Photoshop CC Update with Scott Kelby

Hi gang—BIG NEWS! Today, Adobe released a major update to Photoshop CC with lots of amazing features, and of course, we want you to be on top of all of this (which is what this is all about), but we’ve also got some important Lightroom news, too.

Less than an hour from now (Tuesday, June 21nd, at 11am EDT), Scott Kelby is doing a LIVE Q&A session streamed on Facebook about the new release—come join us. We’re taking your questions and comments live!

IF YOU CAN’T MAKE THE QA: go check Scott’s blog—he’s got full coverage & videos posted there at scottkelby.com.

NEW CLASS: On Friday, we’re releasing a brand new class on all the new Photoshop CC 2015.5 features (yes, it’s called 2015.5 even though this is 2016. Yes, it’s a mystery).

ANOTHER NEW CLASS: Remember that poll we sent you where we asked which specific Photoshop class you wanted to learn next? Remember we said that whatever your #1 pick was, we’d produce that class next? Well, that’s what we did. Your #1 pick was Compositing, and on Friday we’re also releasing Scott’s new class on Masking Hair and Compositing (and yes, Scott had to redo the hair masking part because that’s one of the big new improvements in today’s new release of Photoshop).

MORE COMPOSITING LOVE: Scott’s compositing class is on the essentials, but we also have a new online class (just recorded literally yesterday), from the awesome Corey Barker, on Advanced Compositing techniques, and that will be rolling out within the next few weeks.

LIGHTROOM MOBILE KELBYONE MEMBER-ONLY WEBINAR TOMORROW: Adobe’s own Lightroom Mobile product manager Josh Haftel is at our studios this week, and it’s going to be a busy one:
He’s doing a LIVE special Lightroom Webinar just for KelbyOne members tomorrow (Wednesday)
He’s here taping a new Lightroom Mobile online class just for KelbyOne Members
He’s Scott’s guest this week on “The Grid” (Wednesday at 4:00pm EDT at http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

Lots of exciting stuff, and we’re so glad you’re here with us. BTW: We’ll send you a reminder tomorrow about Josh’s live KelbyOne member’s only Webinar.

Don’t forget to join us at 11:00am EDT at http://facebook.com/skelby—it’s a new Photoshop love fest!

Shared publicly – Yesterday 10:11 AM

Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities — from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

The goldfields are everywhere as are the fiddle neck and mustard, the poppies are coming up.

More stormy wether coming so I think the flowers are going to get better.
