First Flickr Photo

July 27, 2007

I've been meaning to check out Flickr  for a long time, so today I posted my first photo . Flickr has a ton of cool features — most of which I'm still exploring — but it seems like a great way to share photos.

Anyway, if you're a Flickr member and have a passion for photography like I do, drop me note or feel free to comment  on my photos.


Minor Site Updates... Keeping Busy

July 26, 2007

I've been quite busy with client work (mostly custom Photoshop scripts, and website design), but as time permits, I've been making minor improvements to this site. For example, you can now do local site searches using the custom Google search field in the navigation pane (on the left).

I've also posted several new photos, some from client sessions, and others shot just for the enjoyment of it.


Several Updates Available

Adobe Photoshop Security Update

Tons of Tips... and Some Shortcuts

July 6, 2007

I've posted more than 50 Interface Tips in the Photoshop section. I have several hundred more tips to post (in various other categories), but it takes a lot of time to compile and edit them, so it'll be a while before they're posted.

There's also a minor update available for the Photoshop CS3 keyboard shortcuts cheat sheets (for both Mac and PC).
