I had a ball watching the Keynote at Photoshop World Boston. I could sure tell that all the participants had a ball as well. The theme was Golden Layers awards for Phototown Music Awards! Scott Kelby and the Histograms sang up a storm.
It all started with a few words from Larry Becker to introduce Katrin Eismann and Terry White who then proceeded to do their bits with each doing the other's lines. It was Great and they did a fine job of impersonating each other.
Then Felix, Matt, Dave, Cory and Scott came out and did sosme fine, fine Phototown tunes (in the Motown way) comeplete with line dancing and arm motions all in Gold lapeled tuxes, to boot. This was done along with a story of how the group originally included Deke McClelland as lead singer without Scott. Then one day before a tour he stole the tour bus and has been touring the country ever since.
Johnny L was then introduced by Scott and he did a presentation of Adobe's new Phot0shop CS3 and CS3 Extended. This included impressive 3D rendering and compositing for panos.
There was also a very impresive display of a Research Demo of a multi GigaPixel image shot as a full 360 (stitched) pano from the top of the Prudential Tower. Incredible Close-up detail of car license plates and views through windows. Awesome imaging. The shot of Scott as the Supremes was austencibly part of that image. A Johnny L 'gotcha' on Scott Kelby.
Finaly there were some very interesting Guru awards. The Lightroom Gallery Slideshow shows the Vincent Versace award winner.
Over all a thoroughly enjoyable Keynote Segment to PhotoShop World.
