Hey gang! I (Deke) am here to announce two things:
First, I never did get around to posting the very first dekePod pilot, “It’s Your Money, Scan It!” in which a chubbier version of me explains how to capture and edit money (as sponsored by the good people at iStockphoto). Not because the technique is illegal (check out rulesforuse.org) or that it features the Bushes emerging from the bushes (they used to do that). But because the video is out-of-date and low-res. Even so, it’s an entertaining episode. And in Photoshops CS3 and CS4, you can reproduce the technique by opening your money in Camera Raw instead of ImageReady.
Second, as you may recall, dekePod recently suffered an untimely death. But the concept isn’t so much deceased as undead. And on Tuesday of next week (mark your calendars for July 14, Bastille Day!), dekePod claws its way out of its gone-too-soon grave and emerges as an entirely new creature. One filled with AM vim and teeny-bopper vigor. It’s as if dekePod has been squeaky-cleaned by an issue of Tiger Beat magazine.
Keep your eyes glued to this spot. In just a few days, it’s going to get exciting.
