Meet the Author

Scott Valentine is an experimentalist by nature, using his background in physics, music, and theater to bring a unique perspective to sharing knowledge with other Photoshop users and photographers. He is also an Adobe Community Professional and has been a featured presenter for RetouchPRO and Wacom, written for Photoshop User Magazine, and actively supports Adobe user groups. His 2012 title, The Hidden Power of Blend Modes in Adobe Photoshop, was well received for combining creative and technical elements into an approachable work. When not at a keyboard…who are we kidding? Scott is nearly constantly at a keyboard. But sometimes he enjoys playing guitar, ice hockey, and spending time with his family.
