Electronic publishing pioneer Deke McClelland is a popular lecturer on Adobe Photoshop and the larger realm of computer graphics and design. He hosts the in-box videos that ship with Photoshop and Illustrator CS4, as well as many previous versions of the programs. He has also created hundreds of hours of tutorial-style video training for industry leaders lynda.com and, prior to that, Total Training. In addition to his video work, Deke has written over 80 books translated into 24 languages, with more than 4 million copies in print. These included many For Dummies books and the bestselling title ever published on Photoshop, the Photoshop Bible.
One of the most award-winning writers in the technology market, Deke received the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Computer Book in 1989. Since then, he has garnered more than 30 honors, including seven independent citations from the Computer Press Association and an elegant-looking Russian citation that he's never been able to read. In 2002, he was inducted into the National Association of Photoshop's Photoshop Hall of Fame. (Interestingly, this was Deke's second Hall of Fame induction. His first one was in high school for his art and theater work. Who'da thunk?)
In 2004 Deke created the One-on-One™ book series, which uses video, step-by-step exercises, and hundreds of full-color illustrations to provide readers with the closest thing possible to private instruction from a recognized expert. These ambitious, self-paced guides include the bestselling Adobe Photoshop CS4 One-on-One and Adobe InDesign CS4 One-on-One. Late in 2006 Deke teamed up with vanguard online training company lynda.com to bring the One-on-One training strategy to a line of video products, beginning with Photoshop CS3 Beta One-on-One, the first series available for the public beta of Photoshop CS3. His other One-on-One videos include Photoshop One-on-One, Illustrator One-on-One, and InDesign One-on-One: Style Sheets. One-on-One videos for CS4 are in the works.
