lynda.com, the leader in video-based training for digital media and design software, today announced its new relationship with author and instructor Deke McClelland and the immediate availability of Deke’s training title Photoshop CS2 Actions and Automation.
Author of more than 100 books and videos, Deke McClelland is a popular expert and lecturer on Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, and on the broader realm of computer graphics and design. Since he began writing in 1987, his best-selling books have sold more than 3.5 million copies in 24 different languages.
One of the most revered writers in the business, Deke has received more than 20 honors, including seven independent citations from the Computer Press Association. He is a member of the Photoshop World Instructor Dream Team, and a contributing editor for Photoshop User magazine. In 2002, Deke was inducted into the National Association of Photoshop Professionals Photoshop Hall of Fame.
“We’re honored that Deke has joined our esteemed team of authors. He’s a one-of-a-kind talent who makes you want to learn more, and is certain to be quite popular with our discerning audience,” says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Deke’s first title of many to be published in the lynda.com Online Training Library™ is Photoshop CS2 Actions and Automation, which explores ways to do more with Photoshop in less time. “This is some of the most exciting information I’ve had the pleasure to share,” says Deke. “The degree to which you can turn Photoshop into an image-crunching machine is just astounding.”
“This is a remarkable training tutorial, as Deke McClelland takes a subject that could be boring or mundane and infuses it with humor, enthusiasm, and clever examples. He shares numerous techniques and tips that are extraordinary, and outside the bounds of what people might realize is possible,” adds Lynda.
