Each week Colin Smith has been going live on youtube. We do a live Photoshop show. This includes tutorials, tips, challenges, prizes, Q+A and interaction in the chats.

This was started as a way for us to get away from the madness of the global lockdown for an hour a week. It s a time where the and the Youtube CAFE Crew Family all come together. This happens every Thursday at 1pm Pacific time.

This is a different format than the usual Tuesday tutorials and is more of an interactive format and we tend to go a little deeper into certain things as well as exploring multiple ways of doing things. The people attending these live events absolutely love it and they return every week for more.

Im going to share each weeks replays here

You really should join live if you can, its a LOT of fun and there are hundreds of us all coming together in community.

You can join the “live from lockdown” livestream here at 1Pm every Thursday (Its free)

  1. great tutorial #19. Your editing in the 2nd part of the hi-contrast bird was pretty amazing. And I like your humanistic, supportive approach. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Colin. Where have you been? I’ve only just discovered you and I find your videos so very helpful. Thanks very much and I look forward to learning much more. Best wishes. Michael
