Firstly I will touch on Photoshop World – I could write so much about this event that happens twice a year on the East coast and West coasts of the USA. Usually Vegas and Orlando, occassionally the East Coast one changes location, being held in Washington DC this past March, which I attended with a group from the UK. We will be descending on Orlando in April next year for the next East Coast event, although the West Coast one in Vegas will take place between 5-7th September – I seriously recommend a visit to a Photoshop World – THE best Photoshop experience you will have. Corey always has his own classes and luckily for all you designers, not a single photography class. You will see from the above graphic that Corey covers different aspects of design from basic selections to more complex 3D – Corey has a very easy and enthusiastic style of presentation, a real pleasure to follow and completely inspiring.
One of the classes is for the Down and Dirty Tricks, the title of Corey’s first published book written by himself. I actually have two copies myself, one on my iPad and a hard copy so that I have two options of reading, wherever I am, and follow the tutorials. The great thing about this book is that you can follow the tutorial but try these skills out on other projects which Corey covers at the end of each chapter. This book is full of “Wow”. You will certainly take your own design arsenal up a notch if you get your hands on this fantastic book – available here
Full details of the book are here
