Frederick asks the question if Adobe should modularize Photoshop and sell it for $100 and sell add-ons to add functionality as needed.
Richard mentions that he has two photo apps on iTunes: Understanding Photoshop: Panoramic Photos; and Photography and Understanding Photoshop: Quick Fixes.
Richard is also working on a new book, “From Still to Motion,” which teaches photographers how to move from stills to videos. The book also comes with a DVD of the video clips used in the book. They have three chapters left to go and will be ready in March. Pricing will be around $59 USD.
This lead into the never ending discussion about the merging of still photography and video.
