PhotoPlus Expo is just around the corner and I’m busy preparing my seminar and hands-on class this afternoon. My first seminar is on Thursday morning October 25th from 8:45 – 11:45 where I’ll be discussing The Photographer’s Workflow: Using Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6 to Accelerate Processing and Improve your Photos. We’re going to cover everything from presets and templates to batch processing with droplets and variables. It’s sure to be an action packed 3 hours!
If you’re a beginner to Lightroom, and want some hands on experience, then be sure to join me on Saturday morning, October 27th from 8:45 – 10:45 to learn the Fundamentals of Lightroom.

Adobe has updated the Adobe Exchange panel for CS6. Use the Panel to discover and install new plug-ins, extensions, and other content for Photoshop and other Creative Suite Products.
Click here for an overview of the Exchange Panel.
Adobe has released 2 pre-production plug-ins that extend existing functionality inside the Develop Module in Lightroom: Adobe DNG Flat Field and Adobe DNG Recover Edge. These plug-ins are provided free of charge, but without an official support program.
• Adobe DNG Flat Field plug-in in a tool used to correct an optical phenomenon called shading, also known as “lens cast”.
• Adobe DNG Recover Edge plug-in is a tool used to recover image data typically lost when using the in-camera crop mode.
Like other technologies on Adobe Labs, these tools are not finished products, but rather beta or prototype utilities that may work in your particular environment. To download the plug-ins and for more information, please visit Adobe Labs.
There are two new filters for Photoshop CS6 (currently for Mac only) that have been posted to Adobe Labs – Interpolate and Match Edge. The Interpolate filter fills the transparent areas of the current layer with a smooth mix of the colors in the opaque areas while the Match Edges filter changes the colors at the edges of the targeted layer to match those of the layer below it, and smoothly distributes this change through the layer. Like other technologies on Adobe Labs, these tools are not finished products, but rather beta or prototype utilities that may work in your particular environment. To download the plug-ins and for more information, please visit Adobe Labs.
Adobe is looking to talk to teachers, professors and instructors to gain a better understanding about student assignments, software and technology use. This unique and fun opportunity will allow educators to work with Adobe and share how technology is being incorporated in the way students complete assignments in their classrooms. There will be several PAID research opportunities. If you’re interested in these opportunities, please fill out a preliminary screener. You’ll be contacted if you are eligible to participate!
Now that Single Edition is included as part of an Adobe Creative Cloud membership, and Creative Cloud members can submit an unlimited number of iPad apps to the Apple App Store, I thought I would link to a few resources for additional information:

· Series of Adobe TV videos featuring Digital Publishing Suite Evangelist Colin Fleming
· More information is available on the Digital Publishing Suite page
· For further information on Creative Cloud, check the FAQ page on adobe.com
Note: Creative Cloud membership does not include the annual fee for the Apple Developer Program. Mac OS is required to use DPS App Builder.
