    Like you guys said this is one of my favorite shows. You have to have him back on someday.

    I do have one question, what was the name of the software Kirk mentioned in the rapid fire question as the Photoshop plugin which saves him a ton of time. I thought it was Image Fire but a quick google search doesn’t pull anything close.

    Great show as always and keep up the good work.
