Progress is measured in steps both big and small. The smaller ones may get less attention, but they are much easier to take.

It’s been a year of big steps for Apple. The company dropped the “Computer” from its name in January as a way of showing Apple was no longer just about the Mac, and the clear priority for 2007 in Cupertino was to get the iPhone out the door and selling briskly. Then, perhaps for kicks, it decided to overhaul its entire lineup of iPods.

Later today, Apple will take a smaller step, with the launch of Mac OS X 10.5, code-named Leopard. Leopard’s coming on scene later than expected, almost 30 months after Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4) launched in April 2005, in part due to the push to get the iPhone out in time. CNET’S review is in, and my colleagues Elsa Wenzel and Robert Vamosi are positive.

Scott Kelby’s 7-Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3 breaks the Photoshop process down to just seven simple, yet powerful, techniques.

Scott begins each lesson with an untouched, original photo just as it came out of the camera and then takes the reader through each of the seven steps so they can see and learn The System in context.

Scott’s 7-Point System gives Photoshop users a road map that they can easily apply to each and every photo they open, so they know exactly where to start, what to do next, and so on until they have a beautiful finished print.
