Complaints. I get them now and then, and the theme at the moment is that I don’t provide enough example files and demos for readers to work on. In fact, that is the overwhelming criticism about my work (the other is that it’s too advanced for some – I’ll write about that another time). My…Details

While most Photoshop users have gotten used to the idea of making image corrections with it, I wanted to use the Clone Stamp in a more artistic way. Coupled with a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet, I…Details
Now with 5% more things! Ok, don’t hold me to that; I just needed a number. What I really want to share is that I will be taking time to revamp this blog over the next few weeks. The first phase will be to add new features and resources – something I’ve always appreciated in…Details
I just wrapped preliminary recording for a new DVD with my publisher, Peachpit.
