RetouchPRO LIVE "Smart Objects" with Steve Caplin

On our next all-new RetouchPRO LIVE, watch live via your web browser as author and professional photo-illustrator Steve Caplin explains and explores working with Smart Objects in Adobe Photoshop. He'll be answering questions and inviting audience participation along the way.

From Steve:

"Most Photoshop artists tend to ignore Smart Objects, assuming they're only meant for handling imported files or for creating complex artwork. But they're a technology we can make full use of in our everyday Photoshop lives.

In this webinar we'll look at how they can be used to give us more editing flexibility, how we can create a special perspective effect once and then repurpose it with different content, and how we can use Smart Objects as an easy way to create infinite recursive shots - a portrait within a portrait within a portrait, for instance.

After viewing this webinar, you'll find that working with Smart Objects makes your entire Photoshop workflow smoother and more manageable."


Wednesday, September 22, 2pm CDT (see link below for other time zones)

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Smart Objects" with Steve Cap

I just finished our pre-show tech check with Steve. He's going to be covering a lot of material, more even than in the initial description.

A few additional things that came up (there will probably be more):

Using external files
External file types that can/cannot be used
Non-destructive filters
Filter reordering
Common myths

We're also allocating plenty of time at the end for general questions about Smart Objects, so feel free to write your questions in a text document now so you can copy and paste them into the Questions box tomorrow.

Doug, sorry I missed this one. Do you know when you'll be rebroadcasting it or putting it on youtube?

I'm curious, it's unusual to see zero feedback for a Steve Caplan show. How was it?

Re: RetouchPRO LIVE "Smart Objects" with Steve Cap

We had some lag problems, but overall it went very well. I'm equally puzzled about the lack of feedback. We got a lot of positive and enthused comments in the questions box at the end of the show. But Steve tends to attract pretty much the same group every time, so they probably got tired of posting "good show".

I know I was surprised at how much I learned.

My current plan is to rebroadcast on 10/2 and put up on YouTube after that.

Thanks Doug.

Any chance of posting schedules in two week blocks or so, or are these things too touch and go, with last minute reshuffling, etc?

The loose schedule is one of the things that makes this possible. This week I've already changed the next 3 weeks' schedule 3 times.

Guess I missed the "Smart Objects". When I saw the announcement I thought it was for today. Mid week and mid day are impossible for me. Please let me know when there is the rebroadcast. I see you have mentioned that it would be next week, but at what time?
