Passing It On – News and Events

I’m really slammed right now working on the new book, which is now available for pre-order, but I wanted to take just a couple of minutes to pass along some current events and other items of interest.

shameless self-promotion

Google+ Conference for Photogs in USA Today – There’s a nice little write-up in the technology section of the USA Today that explains all about the conference that starts on Tuesday. LINK

Google+ for Photographers – The Book. If you weren’t able to swing a trip to San Francisco but still want to hop into all the photographer goodness of Google+ you are in luck. For a limited time you can buy a copy of Colby Brown’s eBook – Google+ for Photographers. Peachpit is selling it for half off. LINK

Epson has put out some helpful tips on printing summer images on the R2000 printer along with some handy videos. The R2000 is a great printer that handles media up to 13″ in width. If you have been looking for an upgrade to a printer that will give you professional results you definitely want to check out the R2000. TipsLINK | VideosLINK

Easy Online Galleries – My buddy RC Concepcion posted about this new product the other day and I got a few minutes to check it out and it looks very promising. It’s called Juicebox and it lets you create HTML5 photo galleries that will look great on almost any Internet device out there. It is highly customizable and even resizes things depending on the device that is being used to view the gallery. There is a free version that you can try out or you can go with the Pro version for $49 US. Oh yeah, they also have a plug-in so you can create your galleries from Lightroom, Photoshop, WordPress, Picasa, and more. LINK

Get to the summit with Nat Geo – Have you ever thought about climbing Mount Everest but just never could squeeze it into your calendar? Well now it’s a little easier to do, at least in a virtual sense. National Geographic is helping you tag along with a group of climbers. You can get daily video dispatches and voicemails from the climbers, extensive photo galleries, and an Instagram feed. I can already feel the frostbite. LINK

Okay sports fans. That’s all I have for today. Have a great Tuesday and I’ll see you when I see you.
