Photoshop User magazine column teaser

Teaser alert! Here's one of the three techniques I'm writing about today for my Beginner's Workshop column in the November issue of Photoshop User magazine. It's a classy yet simple promotional / ad design for photographers, all done in Photoshop. The stock imagery is from Fotolia.com. In fact, you can visit http://www.lesa.in/fotoliaoffer to sign up for a Fotolia account and get 10 free images (new customers only; offer does not expire).

Photoshop CC 2014 New Features

Everything new is new again

This morning, Adobe announced and shipped the 2014 release of Creative Cloud, which includes a new version of Photoshop CC! It has the most enhancements for designers that I've seen in years — which is a great thing!

At 1pm Eastern time (10am Pacific), Adobe is hosting a live event about the release (tune in here), and they’ve posted a list of what’s new in Creative Cloud here. Be sure to click through to the blogs and videos about the individual products.

Below is my roundup of the new features — you’ll be able to learn everything about them in the upcoming update to my book from O’Reilly, Photoshop CC: The Missing Manual, 2014 edition.
