Review – Photoshop World Conference & Expo, Las Vegas, Nevada - Reboot, Recharge and Reinvent Yourself

When picturing Las Vegas, you might imagine nightlife, casinos, and free-flowing fun. Our goal there was slightly different from that of the average Vegas-goer: to sit in a darkened room with hundreds of like-minded folks who are passionate about digital photography, design, and Photoshop and report on our experience at the National Association of Photoshop Professional's annual Photoshop World conference. Held each September at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, the annual gathering is billed as "The Must Attend Conference for Photographers and Photoshop Users." Does it live up to its billing? Is it a good roll of the dice? Read on to discover our conclusions!
