Deke McClelland 101 Photoshop Tips in 5 Minutes

Can you do 101 Photoshop Tips in Five Minutes? Deke McClelland can. As a matter of fact, that’s the title of his latest work – in video. And he does it in some sort of zany, hilarious way.

101 Photoshop Tips in Five Minutes is a new music video sponsored by O’Reilly Media and where Deke breathtakingly sings, buzzes, leaps, dances, and kick-boxes his way through dozens upon dozens of useful Photoshop tricks. It’s Deke’s initial salvo from his new video podcast series, dekePod.

“This has long seemed like an obvious idea to me: Come up with 101 Photoshop Tips, rattle them off in precisely 5 minutes, and set them to music,” says Deke, creator of O’Reilly’s One-on-One book series, which uses video, step-by-step exercises, and hundreds of full-color illustrations. “I didn’t see anyone else doing it, so I figured I better do it myself.”
