Did you see...

Its An Odd Day

Hello again.

First of all, appologies if you came here yesteday, I was out and about and didn’t get back to the wood until late. 

I’m going to start with a couple of moans:

Something that is really irritating me is reflections. I have nothing against the ‘Apple Reflection’ as such, it is the awful reflections that have appeared. Straight copies don’t always work, 3D objects have an under-side.

I saw one today where an open laptop was reflected. The reflection showed the screen , where in fact it would be obscured by the keyboard. Before you ask, I’m not going to link to it, I have my reasons.

Next: All the video training houses do Introduction to Photoshop, Basic Photoshop or Essential Photoshop. So why every time I go to learn something new either for the web or print or suite integration do I have to sit through lessons on Panels, short-cuts, color space etc? 

I know, I could skip over them, but I don’t. I never know if there is going to be something task related hidden in there. Please training video producers, get to the point of the course before I pull ALL my fur out!

After 14 weeks Deke hits us with another song, this time  “A Love Song to a Lost Feature in Photoshop”. Completely bonkers, un-necessary and over the top. We love you Deke, don’t ever change.
