Andrew Rodney Guest Blogs on Photoshop Insider


Scott Kelby has our own Andrew Rodney of PixelGenius on board as a guest blogger on his Photoshop Insider blog. Andrew talks about “getting old” along side Photoshop and how he, as a Photoshop user of 18 years has learned to love Lightroom. Check it out here. BTW, the image above is a shot Andrew did of his late dog Tosh. He still has 3 dogs (hence the “Digital Dog“ moniker), Zia, Mela and Brisket.

Photoshop Disasters Web Site


For those of you with a bit of time on your hands (or want to check out just how bad some people’s Photoshop skills are), check out

Here you’ll find some really shoddy Photoshop work. So bad in fact that it’s really rather amusing…such as this Hungarian ad for Red Bull.

Red Bull: Gives You Nightmares


Comment: Red Bull in Hungary makes you wish you had never seen this image. Scrubbing your eyeballs doesn’t work, I tried.

A YouTube for artists


Source: CNET
Written by Ina Fried

DeviantArt gets 1.5 billion page views a month, making it one of the most popular Web sites that many people have never even heard of.

Despite the name, only a fraction of the art on the site is what might be labeled deviant. In reality, the site boasts millions of user-uploaded works of art, everything from photography to 3D digital conceptual art to old-fashioned canvas-and-paint portraits.

Ok, it DID finally Air!


On Thursday, Scott posted on his blog (Photoshop Insider) that Photoshop User TV DID finally air on the Fox Business channel.

From Scott: “Hard to believe as this must sound, but Photoshop User TV actually did air on “real” television last night on Fox Business channel. Now, as you might expect, besides the date problem, there was apparently a time slot issue in some parts of the country, and as soon as I’m back in the office (tomorrow), I’ll track it down and hopefully get you the right info for next week, but hey….it’s a start. :)

So, some people in some parts of the country got to see it, others may not have. The good news however is that regardless of the Fox Business channel’s scheduling “issues”, you can STILL be assured of seeing each and every episode on Photoshop User TV‘s web site!

Worth1000 Taking Liberties with the Classics

347712ubdy_w.jpgWorth1000, the perennial Photoshop contest web site has just posted a recent contest titled Counterfeit Art 11–How to tell your fine art is a forgery. The contestants have been taking liberties with the classics…

From the web site come these contest rules: “The rules of this game are thus: You will take any famous painting or artwork (any period is fine) and alter it in such a way that it is obviously a forgery, as in the themepost. As always, quality is a must. We will remove poor entries no matter how much we like you. You’ll have 48 hours to submit for this contest, so make your submission count.”

Hit list: NO celebrities. NO guitars. Use them and get disqualified.

The entry shown here is Goose by MissChief

“Although she couldn’t quite put her finger on it, the museum’s curator became suspicious after viewing the back of the latest acquisition for the ancient, Roman, sculpture galley.”

Helping the Help: Photoshop now on LiveDocs

Source: John Nack’s Adobe Blog

The Help files that ship with Adobe products seem to catch a lot of slings and arrows from users.  There are some fair points to be made, and one small team of writers can never be as specific, detailed, or personable as the many third-party books out there.  This is especially true when the Adobe writers are trying to finish their work far in advance of shipping the product, in order to have time to localize the content into multiple languages.
