Over at O’Reilly Digital Media, Derrick Story has posted an interview he did with Deke at last Spring’s Photoshop World, wherein Deke enlightens O’Reilly’s evangelist on the mysteries of smart objects. It’s a fun conversation, with Deke the graphics guru and Photoshop connoiseur enlightening Derrick the photographer and Photoshop anarchist. (I like the audio only when my eyes need a break from the screen, or you know, I’m driving a car.) OK, so this picture is actually from last month in Las Vegas (y’all are going to figure it out from the dekePod logo on the screen anyway). But it is, in fact, Deke and Derrick, and they are talking about something related to Photoshop. It could be smart objects. And my shots from Orlando were apparently affected by humidity.
It just so happens these are the two guys I’m putting out there for my Photoshop CS4 book offerings this fall. You all know what Deke has to offer, and the Adobe Photoshop CS4 One-on-One book will be ready as soon as the project launches (thanks to Deke’s amazing amazing team—Carol, Spink, Ron, Julie, David, Toby—woohoo!). Derrick’s book, The Photoshop CS4 Companion for Photographers, will be day-and-date with CS4 as well, providing photographers with a streamlined plan for Photoshop that gives them everything they need, and nothing they don’t. See? I gotcha covered. ‘Cause I know smart when I see it.
