Here is the comment I left:  (I meant it all!)

In 2001, right before 911, I attended my very first Photoshop Seminar Tour with Scott Kelby in NYC. He literally “changed the course of my life.”  

About 7-8 years ago I discovered I had a flair for digital design. I started with Paint Shop Pro like most on the web. Found out quickly that Photoshop was the industry standard. Thought it would be a breeze. WRONG!!!

I thought it would take forever or never to learn all the cool stuff people did with Photoshop. WRONG!!!

In ONE DAY with Scott Kelby I learned that “I could learn quickly and that it was all a few clicks away!” IF I could bottle the feeling I had when I left the Jacob Javits Convention Center that day, I would make millions.

It was what Dr. Phil would say “A Defining Moment!” I am a dedicated NAPP Member and in my book: “If Scott Kelby does it, it has to be good!” (sight unseen). I already have my ticket to the June, 2007 Photoshop Seminar Tour in NYC. IF Scott will be there, so will I! Scott Kelby makes a long and tedious day of learning, fun with his humor and Photoshop expertise.

NAPP: Master Photoshop CS2 with Deke McClelland – NYC

NAPP: Master Photoshop CS2 with Deke McClelland – NYC
Once again the NAPP Photoshop Seminar Tour is coming to NYC.

These tours are recommended for anyone involved with Adobe Photoshop, remotely involed with Adobe Photoshop or “even thinking of becoming involved with Adobe Photoshop.” It is not only an extensive day of learning, but CAN BE an eye opener. My very first seminar tour (with Scott Kelby) in 2001 was what Dr. Phil would call a “definitely moment” for me.

REVIEW: Plaid Lite – Magic or Art

You gotta love this… Instant Plaids!

A while back I got the bright idea to create a collection of digital designs with Plaid as the theme.  The problem was, I was clueless as to how to make this happen.

After a bit of research and help from colleagues I was off and running to explore the list of websites I had been presented with.

The very first website I visited and the one I kept coming back to was:

Plaid Lite – by NameSuppressed Design

“Plaid Lite” has the flexiblity and good sense to allow one to create their own unique plaid patterns using almost any image that is inserted into the filter.  The results are phenominal and limited only by ones own imagination and/or images used.

From the website Plaid Lite’s features include:
