Scott Kelby, president of the National Association of Photoshop
Professionals (NAPP) and conference chair of Photoshop World
Conference & Expo, has unveiled the newest NAPP member benefit ,
H.E.L.P. ( — for How-to
Educational Library for Photoshop — during the opening keynote at
the Photoshop World Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.

If you’ve ever wondered what a particular checkbox, tool, filter, or
option was in Adobe Photoshop , NAPP set out to show you just that in
short 60-second max videos. After input from thousands of beta
testers around the world, H.E.L.P. has been tweaked, updated,
simplified, and expanded, according to Kelby.

Along with the H.E.L.P system, NAPP launched a new project for people
who are brand new to Photoshop, to help them get up to speed fast,
with 2009 NAPP Photoshop Hall of Fame inductee Dave Cross as their
personal guide and trainer. It’s available on the NAPP member web
site (

NAPP also released a special custom designed set of Wacom tablet
drivers pre- programmed for different Photoshop tasks like photo
retouching, graphic design, color correction, and more for its
members to use.
