    I have just gotten adobe premier pro for my pc, so I am hoping that by keeping in touch with these tips will rub off!

  4. Larry Robinson says:

    Love this type of show, thanks guys.

  5. Great set of tips on editing photos. Thanks !!! Let me know if I won the contest and I will send you my shipping info.

    Great show. I tried the levels trick with an adjustment layer and was pleasantly surprised to find it worked there as well.

    Great show guys. Pete, you’re right; you can’t explain your color-blindness to anyone else. There is no common reference. It is easy to tell someone that green looks grey but you and I know that is not quite true. An example for me is that I can tell that brown is a color, it does not look grey, but I can’t tell you if it is brown, green or dark red, unless of course, it actually does look brown…. Drives other people crazy but doesn’t bother me a bit.

  8. Nice show, nice “what do I do wrong” list!!

    Nancy, not really into posting my shipping information here, in a public forum, but I can do that very quickly by e-mail 😉

    9 minutes and 35 seconds and finally you are ´jumping right into´ the topic… I am watching the recorded video. If I where watching the live session, I´d have been gone during the first minute…
