    Another great show.
    Now let’s talk about your lighting of the set (again). Last show it was too dark in Pete’s corner, now it is too hot. I’ll be happy to donate a light meter if you’ll use it.

  19. Chris Helms says:

    Holy Crap, Corey! That segment blew my mind!

    RC, I had no idea you can drag the drop shadow in the document to change it in the dialog!

    Great show with a ton of tips I had no idea about. What a way to end out the season! Happy travels and see you in the next season.

    I definitely would like to win the book, and I love how you keep clearing out old discontinued software (PhotoFrame, NIK Color Efex Pro 3, etc…).

    Much love!

    I hope Photoshop World will come to Australia in the near future. We have some great scenery and a generous amount of heat

  21. Denys says:

    I liked warping videos effect, I need to try some video editing in Photoshop some time.

    Have a good day,

  22. George Kwain says:

    Cracks me up everytime :-)

  25. Justin Roush says:

  26. Justin Roush says:

    I would love to win the portrait retouching book

  27. Now that I’ve upgraded from Elements to CS6, it is really nice to see tips on how to use it.

    It would be helpful to hear a few more mentions on what the differences are between Mac and PC though.

    Thank You!

  28. Rob Bring says:

    Good show. Have you thought about doing an astrophotography (landscape) episode?

  29. Kevin Metallic says:

    Love the show, lots of good into!

  30. My God, how I love these classes :)

  31. linda says:

    Pete needs to be reminded that his audience is not exclusively male… some. little wives might prefer photoshop world over babysitting at Disney

  32. Jane says:

    Loved Pete’s quote: “sometimes our best learning happens when we play”.

    Let the play begin!

  33. Ralph Pruitt says:

    What about a discount on NAPP membership for people residing outside the US? Seems unfair that they pay the same even though they don’t get the physical Photoshop User mag. On-line access is certainly not as enjoyable!
    Kind Regards, Ralph. Buckeye AZ. and Lawford UK.

  34. Peter harklau says:

    I love how all of you have such a fun time and making learning Photoshop fun! keep up the great work!

  35. Wayne Robinson says:

    Love the video tips. Another great show. Thanks guys!

  36. clive davies says:

    great show (again)
    Have a good break guys!

  37. Gary Elliott says:

    Great show and great season. Enjoy the break and bring back some more of those awesome techniques.

  38. Phil says:

    Hi. I enjoyed the show, as always.
    I have one comment- you probably already know this but just in case… In Camera Raw (at least in the version that shipped with CS 5) if you have multiple images selected in the thumbnails on the left, any change you make will be applied to them all. You can select by pressing the “Select All” button or by the usual methods- command + a to select all (provided the thumbnails area is the last place you clicked within Camera Raw), command + click to select specific thumbnails, or shift + click to select a series.
    Thanks again for a great show!

  39. Sandy says:

    THANKS RC just what I was looking for!

  40. Ron Elkins says:

    Great season. I can’t wait till may.
