But I’m smiling. My head is saturated with tons of Photoshop tips, tricks, techniques, and tools. I learned so much – little of which I could just whip out, but most of which is in my notes or in the two immense books that come with attendance here.

Jim DiVitale galloped through the preconference workshop here at Photoshopworld. My brain isn’t full, but it’s getting saturated (small photo editing joke there – very small).

I am sandwiched between the long trip, back just a week ago, and my departure tomorrow for Photoshopworld, so no time to properly blog this article on Log and Capture Workflow from the irreplaceable Ken Stone.
