I just want to give a huge shout out of thanks to +Scott Kelby for being our +Photofocus® Lightroom Hangout guest today. He rocked it! You can catch the archived recording here: http://photofocus.com/2015/01/26/lightroom-hangout-bodacious-book-layouts-with-scott-kelby/

He's really got a great perspective on making the Book module work for you, even if you don't actually print the books. Lot's of questions got answered, and prizes were given away. Scott even shared the fact that a class he did on the Book module in Lightroom 4 (core features and functionality is the same in LR 5) is totally available for free on +KelbyOne, just head over here and rent it for $0.00:

Big thanks to my buddy +Levi Sim for pulling it all together and making it happen. See you next month!

I hope you'll join +Levi Sim and I on our +Photofocus® Lightroom hangout tomorrow (Thursday, Jan 29) in welcoming our special guest +Scott Kelby! Our topic this month is the Book module, and I know Scott has a ton of killer tips to share. We're super psyched to have him on the show, oh, and there will be prizes! 
 
Lightroom's Book Module is a powerful tool, and there's nobody better to help us unleash it's secrets than +Scott Kelby. If you're like +Rob Sylvan and +Levi Sim, you're familiar with www.ScottKelby.com where we've been dazzled by Scott's photo book layouts for years. Besides his photo books, he's also the world's number one best selling author (here're some of Scott's books: http://amzn.to/1CoUTgm). His comprehensive style has revolutionized the way we learn technical skills like photography and photoshop. Levi's shelves are overflowing with Kelby titles.

We can't wait to have him on the show!

We highly recommend learning with Scott, and you can catch loads of his video lessons over at www.Kelbyone.com.

Join us live this Thursday to ask questions and be entered in our live giveaways, including full apps from Adobe and onOne.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Photofocus®. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

This Thursday I'm super excited to hangout with my buddy +Levi Sim and our special guest +RC Concepcion from +KelbyOne to share our favorite things about the latest version of +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I hope you can join us for our April +Photofocus® Lightroom hangout!
 
I don't know which I'm more excited about, that +RC Concepcion is coming on the show, or that he is going to help us explore the incredible new features in Lightroom CC and Lr 6. I'm stoked about both.

Can you believe that we can now make Panoramas and HDR's and get a RAW file??? Can you believe how much faster Lightroom is??? Can you believe we've got brush-able filters??? We'll show you how to use these features and more. It's gotta be a party for sure.

Join regular hosts +Rob Sylvan and +Levi Sim  live to ask questions about the new tools and be entered to win some terrific prizes to boot.

This episode will be useful for all levels of Lightroom users from beginner to advanced.

We'll see you here on Thursday!
