I took a class from Alma Loveland and it really helped to get me started in Illustrator. She does one day crash courses on Saturdays, and it's great! She also teaches 102 and does private lessons too.

Scott Kelby has a great book called "The Adobe Photoshop CS4 book for Digital Photographers." I LOVE it. They have it at the library (SL County at least) and it has helped me a TON. CS4 is fabuloso.

PS: My first comment here! I L-O-V-E your photography and style. Thanks for sharing all of your talented-ness. :)

I LOVE CS4!!! There is a great tutorial by Chris Orwig on Lynda.com that is focused on how photographers can use it.

My biggest timesaver with cs4 is I open in bridge then open with the raw editor. the raw editor is so easy to use and I can do all of the basic edits in a couple clicks and all the pics at the same time. that has saved me gazillions of hours.

Jaci said...

I am also looking for good info on illustrator and CS4. I have been trying to teach myself how to use CS4 since December and I feel like I am missing out on so much I could be doing with it! I want to learn how to use bridge! tips?? please share any class ops, books, or websites!
