    […] ScobleShow (at least part I is, Part II will be up in a few minutes). This is actually not a “walking” one, but we sit down in my home office (Thomas says it’s my mansion, butreally isn’t) with Jan Kabili, who produces the excellent Photoshop Online TV and has written a ton ofbetter (the techniques discussed will work with pretty much any photo editing tool). If you’re using a digital SLR, this is one hour that’ll make your photo workflow a lot better. Filed under: blogging @ 6:36 pm # […]

    Yay! I’ve been anxiously waiting for this one when it was mentioned way back on the first photowalk.

    Hey, I bought my latest batch of photo stuff from B&H Photo, too. Great service!

    The video didn’t really need Thomas. I would have rather enjoyed hearing what Jan had to say and teach more, and I didn’t really need to hear Thomas keep saying ‘yeah yeah’.

    Why was the mic on Thomas and not on Jan?

    You could have used his images as examples but he added nothing by being in the videos.

  5. Robert Scoble Says:

    Hank, I think he added a lot. He’s an advanced photographer and demonstrated he didn’t know a lot of the basics. If he weren’t there we probably wouldn’t have been half as interesting.

    Jan had a microphone on her. Maybe it wasn’t mixed as well as it could have been, sorry about that.

    What kind of speaker system do you have? I have a $60 one and she sounds just great.

  6. Nigel Says:

    Bridge looks pretty powerful, and I agree with your comments above regarding the fact that although Thomas is a pro when it comes to shooting he’s about my level with photoshop etc … There is hope for us all :)

  7. Chris Says:

    Why the jump in the middle? We were just getting into the meat of raw processing when it skipped to fixing the eye.

  8. Robert Lindner Says:

    Too much chatter
