It's Time to say Farewell

Seven and a half years ago, the 8th January 2007 to be exact, I sat down and recorded my first ever video tutorial – a demonstration of how to create a realistic lightning bolt in Photoshop and add it seamlessly to a photograph I’d taken the year before in Utah, USA.

Happy Holidays 2012
The clock has just struck midnight officially making it Christmas Day (or morning) and so I wanted to come on here to wish all of our members a happy holiday season and a successful 2013.
My view on Christmas is simple. It’s time out from the usual hectic schedule of life to spend some well earned hours with family and close friends.

A Beginner's Guide to Fixing Photos - Coming Soon!

I’m currently working on my next video series for release in late August entitled ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Fixing Photos’. It will be based on the ‘Basic Photo Edits’ chapter from my previous series ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Photoshop Elements 9’, detailing the basics every user needs to know, expanding into additional topics that I’ve not discussed before.

This is a great opportunity for me to work with photographers who use Photoshop Elements 10 to enhance and adjust their images.

Site Update - May 2012

Whilst using you may experience some minor periods of downtime and restricted access between the 31 May and 5 June 2012.

During this time we will be migrating the site to a new server, which has the potential to cause a short period of downtime. We will also be suspending the creation of new accounts, our web store, forums, and commenting system so that when we copy the database over it will be completely up to date, and therefore cause as little disruption as possible in the long term.

Five Year Anniversary

Exactly five years ago today, January 8 2007, I uploaded my first ever video tutorial to YouTube. I remember sitting down at midday and recording a tutorial looking at how to create a bolt of lightning in Photoshop CS2, and then uploading it to an old YouTube account I already had going. It took me two takes to record the entire thing, a far cry from the hours of preparation, recording, editing and presenting that my videos take nowadays.

A Beginner’s Guide to Photoshop Elements 9 - Coming Soon!
Over the past few months I’ve been thinking about re-recording my popular video series ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Photoshop Elements’, updating it from version 6 to 9. It’s a lot of work so it wasn’t a decision I could take lightly, as not only would I need to update parts of the course that had changed through the versions, but also add additional content on other essential commands and new features that came along with version 9.

Tobago 2010- Blog Post
A couple of weeks ago I booked a weeks’ holiday in Tobago, then, without warning, some volcano in Iceland decided to erupt resulting in the UK and other European countries closing their air space. The saga began as an understandable reaction to some kind of volcanic dust entering our skies and ended with the longest and most expensive grounding of flights in European history.

10 Free Applications That Make This Site Possible
Only this morning I was out walking when an elderly gentlemen stopped me and asked if I could direct him towards Long Melford. It being a town only 20 minutes from where I live, and one I regularly drive through while on my way to Portman Road (the home of my favourite football team) I immediately suggested he turn his car around, take a left at the mini-roundabout, follow the road for around 3 miles until he sees a signpost for Clare, take the left and keep going until he cruises down a big old hill and into the town of Long Melford.

The Facebook 100 -Blog Entry

Today, Sunday 14 March 2010, saw our 100th person become a fan of the official fan page on Facebook.

Having launched on 21 October 2009, I have to say I'm immensely proud of attracting that many fans in the space of 144 days, especially considering that after a relatively slow start we saw 72 people become fans inside the last 72 days, indicating that as we grow, the rate of fans clicking on that little 'become a fan' button has grown too.

Quicktime Out - Flash In - Blog Post

Over the last few weeks I've been busily compressing our entire quicktime video collection to flash. Even though there's no change to the size, the collection itself, or the way they play on the site, I figured for full disclosure of what the site is going through (aka a site blog), I'd keep you updated on the latest why's and how's. For the technical stuff, read on.

Out with the old Blog Post

After nearly a year in the making, welcome, finally, to the new and improved 3photoshop website. If you’ve visited before, you should notice a considerable difference (and improvement) between the old site and the new. If it’s not apparent from the look and feel, then let me assure you, things behind the scene have not just been updated, but completely ripped out and rebuilt. Why would I do such a thing? For two (main) reasons! One, we now have a community instead of just a website, and two, it’s made it so much easier to update and maintain.

Have Your Say Blog Entry

Long before I converted this site to Drupal, back in the days of the static-HTML version, I longed to place a poll on here to give me some sort of idea as to what the viewers of the site wanted to see more of. At the time, building a complex poll way surpassed my capability and perhaps was too intense to pull off easily with the software I was using, so I looked for a free service on the world wide web.
