PHOTOGRAPHERS. DESIGNERS. Have you ever attended a Photoshop workshop in which attendees were using various versions of the software? It slows down the pace of instruction and the relevance of the question-and-answer session. That’s why a new offer initiated by Scott Kelby of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals is a stroke of genius.
Kelby Media Group and NAPP have announced that Adobe will provide a free one-year Adobe® Creative CloudTM membership to all registered attendees of the 2013 Photoshop World Conference and Expo from September 4-6 in Las Vegas.
Photoshop World, which is produced by NAPP, attracts creative people from all backgrounds and skills levels. Teachers, students, amateurs, and pros convene at Photoshop World for classes on Photoshop, Lightroom, photography techniques, lighting, graphic design, and building a creative-services business.
With Creative Cloud memberships, all Photoshop World attendees will have access to the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Lightroom, Acrobat, and more. Plus, attendees will get new features and upgrades as soon as they are available. Creative Cloud memberships also offer file sharing services and access to publishing apps and websites. Creative Cloud members can publish a customized portfolio on their own URL and plug into the Behance creative community.
The one-year Creative Cloud membership is valued at $600. Until August 2, a full conference registration for Photoshop World is $598 for non-members of NAPP and $499 for NAPP members. Photoshop World alumni get a $50 discount, and non-members get a one-year NAPP membership which includes 10 issues of Photoshop User magazine and access to online classes and tutorials.
