Last week, Adobe hosted a “virtual” launch party for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. I was invited to attend in person at Adobe’s Minnesota offices in Shoreview, MN. As you can see, the weather was very, uh, Minnesotan. Listed in the story are Lightroom Resource URLs as well as links to movies of the Lightroom “Virtual” Launch Party.

We’ve been working on it for a while, but wanted to wait until Lightroom was announced before taking it live, but here it is…Lightroom-News.com the sister news site for all things Lightroom (and some other stuff thrown it for taste).
Martin Evening will be sharing duties as Editor in Chief with Jeff Schewe. Contributing Editors are; Ian Lyons, Sean McCormack, Seth Resnick & Andrew Rodney.
So, how will Lightroom-News be different than Photoshop-News.com? Both sites will cover their own product exhaustively and there will be a little bit of useful overlap. Clicking on the various story links will just move you around to the most comprehensive sites on Photoshop and Lightroom you are likely to find.

An End User’s Champion, Fraser’s Contributions to the Digital Imaging and Desktop Color Industry will be Celebrated in an Upbeat, Inspirational Multimedia Event on January 10
Press Release: January 2, 2007 – San Francisco – Visual arts connoisseur, proud and humorous Scotsman, masterful musician, tireless digital imaging scientist and author, and peaceful Buddhist with more than a passing fancy for astronomy — Bruce Fraser was a renaissance man whose most outstanding characteristic was his humanity.

Bruce Fraser, noted author and lecturer, passed away on Saturday, December 16th, 2006. He was at home with his wife Angela and friends. Bruce, a Buddhist, will be cremated and his ashes returned to Scotland. Friends and family are working on an industry tribute to Bruce to be held at Macworld on the evening of January 10th, 2007.
When the mind is at peace,
the world too is at peace.
Nothing real, nothing absent.
Not holding on to reality,
not getting stuck in the void,
you are neither holy or wise, just
an ordinary fellow who has completed his work.
– Layman Pang-yun

Some of our visitors to PhotoshopNews may already be aware that Bruce Fraser, noted author, lecturer and “color geek”, was diagnosed several months ago with terminal lung cancer.

I’ll be taking some personal time off this week for family reasons, so PhotoshopNews will have only spotty coverage. However, you -WILL- want to tune into PhotoshopNews this coming Friday, December 15th-I can say no more…

For the last few years, a small exclusive group of people have been invited by the Pixel Mafia to attend a special dinner during PhotoPlus Expo (see the PSN Pixel Mafia story from 2005). Who is the Pixel Mafia you may ask? Well, if you have to ask, you really don’t want to know…The Rules of Omertá, ya know?
This year, the Pixel Mafia Dinner was held on Thursday, November 2nd at Jovia Restaurant (135 E 62nd Street near Lexington). The guests were comprised of the “Usual Suspects” as well as some new blood.

I’ll be on the road to California, the Bay Area to visit Adobe in San Jose, go to the Wine Spectator Wine Experience and do Greg Gorman’s Digital Photographic Workshop in Mendocino…oh yeah, then I’ll be in Phoenix (well, ok actually Chandler) AZ for the Epson Print Academy. Busy couple of weeks! And, if that’s not enough I’ll also be joining Martin Evening, Seth Resnick and Andrew Rodney (and a few thousand other photographers) for PhotoPlus Expo in New York City.
Needless to say, the amount of posts on PhotoshopNews might be a little light.
