Scott Kelby is Dumping My Apple Watch

Here’s the breakdown:

* Apple wants you to charge your watch at night.

* Apple wants you to charge your watch *every* night.

* Scott didn’t like to watch his watch at night, every night.

* Scott’s watch couldn’t make it through the day.

This doesn’t mean that the watch is a “bad” product, or that Scott isn’t “using his watch right”, but it does mean that the Apple Watch isn’t for him.


Scott Kelby Tells his Most Embarrassing Photography Story Ever

This story is so, so good. If you are a photographer, take a few minutes and give it a listen.


Adobe Quietly Allays a Big Creative Cloud Concern in Lightroom 5.5

Great move by Adobe. Now, if your subscription runs out, you can still pretty much use all all non-develop module parts of Lightroom to manage, print or export your photo collection.


Scott Kelby Breaks down the Adobe Creative Cloud Options Available to Photoshop Users

I think this is the most important part:

> **2: You owned a previous version of Photoshop (any version from Photoshop CS3 to CS6)**

> For you, Photoshop CC is $9.99 a month PLUS you get Lightroom 5 as well and 20GB of cloud storage and a Behance Prosite (custom web portfolio) as well. Sweet!

> *NOTE: This deal is only available until Dec 31st of this year. If you wait until after the first of the year and miss locking in this insanely low price, whining is strictly forbidden (well, at least here anyway). *

For all that you get for $10, this seems like a complete no-brainer deal. Just sign up and be done with it.

Scott Kelby’s Take on Adobe’s Announcements Yesterday at the MAX Conference

A really good, level-headed explanation of the pricing changes coming to Photoshop and other Adobe products. I am pretty sure I will be subscribing to Creative Cloud once the new versions of photoshop show up in a couple of weeks.
