Martini Hour 001, In Which Colleen Spills Her Drink
Today at dekeOnline we prove that a tech podcast can be warm, friendly, and inviting. Welcome to the first episode of our semi-regular, very-possibly-close-to-weekly, audio-only podcast, Martini Hour. Here's an insanely large graphic to honor the occasion.
Think of it as a mid-season replacement for dekePod, only completely different -- by which I mean unscripted, conversational, altogether relaxed, video-free, and with three olives. The video portion occurs only in your mind as you listen to me and Colleen sip cocktails in the dekeLounge and discuss the digital imaging issues of the day.
In this first episode, I spontaneously answer davep's question(s) about why file size has a tendency to dramatically increase in Photoshop before you create a single layer or apply a single edit. Then Colleen questions the Illuminati-like Conspiracy of Photoshop and why the program makes the simple act of straightening a photograph so absurdly complicated. Hear how you, our beloved dekeItarians, are honored in our first ever Toast of the Week. After all, you are so supportive, intelligent, and good looking.
Here's the regular-quality (192kbps) audio file. For best results, right-click and choose Download or Save. Though, who knows? You might be able to stream.
