Thanks for all the kind words on our new newsletter format. We are continuing to evolve based on your comments.

Thinking. An Internet firestorm arose last week over Apple's release of ad blocking software for Safari. Plenty of ox being gored over this.  However, this brings to mind that, once again, the Internet wants to eat its young. More below.

Webinars. Last week's webinar covering color correction in Final Cut Pro X set a record for attendance. This week, I show how to color correct in the latest version of Adobe Premiere. Adobe's added a lot of new features - so be sure to register today. It's FREE!

Training. My newest training on Photoshop for Video Editors is proving popular. If you need to enhance your Photoshop skills or have a friend who's struggling to master the app, check out my training.

Articles. I have four new articles for you this week, covering color correction, archiving and the latest display of the Law of Unintended Consequences. And, as always, I've updated our list of most popular articles, interviews and webinars.

See you next week.

Color Correction in Final Cut Pro X
There's nothing worse than getting back from a shoot only to discover all all your images are blue, or green

In this webinar, I show how to display the video scopes, then use them to analyze your images. Next, we look at how to make gray-scale and color adjustments and end with power tools such as color and shape masks.

Color Correction in Premiere Pro
Last week, we looked at color correction in Final Cut. This week, we do the same thing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015.

In this week's presentation, I show you how to access the brand-new video scopes in Premiere, then how to use the color corrector effect to make your images look great. Color is one of my favorite things to teach.
