I've been doing a lot of custom Photoshop scripting lately, and here's what some of my clients are saying:
“Trevor was very easy to work with: he was clear, patient and quick to respond to queries, which made the project straightforward. He was also very helpful at putting forward suggestions that I would not have known to be possible in order to improve the capabilities of what we were working with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend working with Trevor.”
“From the outset, working with Trevor has been brilliant. Everything from asking for a quotation to the delivery of the goods. Even when there were a few teething problems, Trevor was able to provide a solution. Even with Trevor in Canada and I in the UK, everything was handled as if he lived just across the road! Thanks a Million. I can recommend working with him anytime.”
“It was great working with Trevor as he created a script for use in my movie series, Photoshop CS3 for the Web, on lynda.com. Trevor was fast, responsive, and gracious, and his product was right on.”
If you have a project that you'd like to discuss with me, please contact me with the details and I'd be happy to provide you with a free estimate.
Speaking of scripting, here are a couple of new tutorials that I've written to help you learn how to script Photoshop for yourself:

This article provides an overview of what scripts are, how to install them, and what resources are available for learning more about scripting.

A Pleasant Shopping ExperienceNovember 25, 2007
It's not often that I post this sort of thing, but I gotta tell you; I recently purchased a few digital camera accessories from B&H Photo , and it was the most pleasant online shopping experiences I've ever had!
First off, I really like the B&H website : it's well-organized, easy to navigate, the filters are brilliant and easy to use, and everything I was looking for was available and in stock.
I was also impressed with how quickly my order shipped (the same day) and then arrived at my doorstep (in Canada) a mere few days after I placed the order.
Anyway, if you've never ordered from B&H Photo before, why not give them a try? I know where I'll be making my future camera purchases. Your mileage may vary.
