Scott Valentine has spent 25+ years teaching and writing about Photoshop, and developed a unique approach and perspective that relies on his background in physics: mastery through experimentation. Sought by colleges, camera clubs, and national conferences, he has two goals for you: to smile, and to never let your tools get in the way of your art. He writes to help your creative spark grow into a flame, by breaking down common digital tools and techniques and reassembling them in unique new ways. He has been an invited speaker at ADIM and MAX, and writes a monthly column for Photoshop User Magazine. Learn more about him at scoxel.com.
