Lynda.com Announces Photoshop CS3 Beta One-on-One Preview
lynda.com, the company specializing in self-paced career and computer training in digital media and design, today announced the availability of free online video tutorials, titled Photoshop CS3 Beta One-on-One Preview, with best-selling Photoshop One-on-One book author Deke McClelland.
On December 15, 2006, Adobe announced the first-ever public beta for their upcoming version of Photoshop, its flagship image-editing software. In addition to many new features, this simultaneous Mac and PC release will be the first version of Adobe Photoshop that is optimized for use on Intel-based hardware, and has huge speed enhancements as a result. Best-selling author and Photoshop guru Deke McClelland has teamed up with lynda.com to create the first professionally-produced instructional training on every new feature in Photoshop CS3 for this landmark release. Photoshop CS3 Beta One-on-One Preview offers a personal video tour through a series of real-world examples that illustrate each of the key features and enhancements in the Photoshop CS3 Beta. Major and minor features alike are covered in meticulous detail.
"For the first time in history, Adobe has released a public beta of their flagship product, Photoshop," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com. "Deke McClelland has been the top selling book author on Photoshop for years, and has authored, in partnership with the lynda.com Online Training Library, the first thorough training on this subject in the industry. Two exciting firsts! Video publishing makes getting our learning tools to market as fast as software can be released; we are watching history in the making as software releases and training releases accelerate beyond what has ever before been possible."
In another first, lynda.com is also publishing this title free to anyone, for a limited time. Exercise files are included as part of the free downloads.
