Photoshop 2019 One-on-One: Advanced Updates

Hello, dekeTriots. Since many of you have been asking, I wanted to let you know that Photoshop One-on-One: Advanced, the second installment in Deke’s series has been updated at LinkedIn Learning. (At the bottom of this post, I’ve created a linked list of all the new/updated videos for your quick reference.)

To celebrate, here’s a free sample from Chapter 18, “Scale, Rotate, Skew, and Warp” that explains the new and somewhat puzzling behavior of the reference point when you’re transforming an object in Photoshop. You know, this thing:

Most notably, Deke reminds you to turn it on and why you’d want to. I unlocked the this classic Deke explanation for your enjoyment:

Because you’ve all been so patient, and I know long-time Deke fans might want to skip to directly to the new stuff, I made this linked list of all the features/movies that have been updated for 2019.
