Dear PET community,
Most of you know that we are in the process of closing Photo One, the publishers of Photoshop Elements Techniques and ON1 Photo magazines. The magazine websites will close on August 5, and I know that many people are frantically working to download videos and tutorials from our archives, but that is a daunting task, and I know many folks are enjoying the summer holidays and are far from their computers.
I am trying to find a home for most of the tutorials, however. It probably won’t happen until after August 5, but once the site closes, I will put a static web page up at this address. As things happen, I will let folks know the status of things.
Understand that there are tens of gigabytes of applicable videos, and a few gigabytes of PDF tutorials that are in the process of being archived. I will do my best to make them available to everyone, free of charge.
I am not doing anything, however, about the Web tutorials. The majority of them are more than 8 years old, and have little relevance to most folks because they deal with very old versions of Elements. If you’d like to look at those and see if there’s something you’d like to save, check out the Web tutorials listing pages. You should be able to print them out easily. (Go to a tutorial you want to keep, click the Print link in the bar above the article but underneath the headline. That should give you a fairly clean copy to print out.)
If you did not receive the email about the closure, send us an email to that effect to email@example.com.
Lastly, we would like to say thanks, from the bottom of our hearts, for outpouring of love and support that Diana and I have received from the PET community since the announcement. This was a very hard decision for us to make; we probably went on longer than we should have, but we felt an obligation to you, our dear readers, to make a go of it. We have loved you all, and wish you nothing but the best in your future photographic endeavors. We truly wished that we could have gone on publishing this little magazine forever.
