  1. nicely done, easy to follow & well illustrated, useful/usable info
    bet your book’s written in the same style, i’ll have to have a look at it, perhaps my students will want it too.

  2. Thanks, Keith. I appreciate the compliment. The book is nearing wrap-up phase, and I’m very excited. I’ve tried to put together a collection of tips that can help take students all the way through a digital workflow that includes both ACR/Lightroom and Photoshop, catching some of the best new features along the way. As time nears I will be tweeting about it and hopefully getting 1 or 2 excerpts online at Peachpit. Will keep everyone posted. 🙂

  3. Very well explained. Do I understand you have a book coming out? I’m interested!

  4. Thanks Dan for the great video! I have been curios about to go about the single color selection with a mask. Thanks again, I’m off to practice this!

  5. Just a quick announcement: the book shipped to outlets last week, and I’ll be tweeting about a new contest this starting this week (@Colortrails), where I’ll hopefully be giving away several copies between now and the end of the year. Thanks to all for the kind words and support. -Dan
