About the Author

Dave Cross

Dave Cross is Senior Developer, Education and Curriculum, for the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). In that role, he is involved in all aspects of the training that is provided to NAPP members, including the content of seminars, conferences, and workbooks. He also creates the very popular weekly QuickTime-based tutorials that appear on the members' website. Dave is an Adobe Certified Instructor in Photoshop CS2, and a Certified Technical Trainer.

Prior to joining the NAPP, Dave lived in Canada and spent many years as a trainer and author, training thousands of users across North America. Dave is the co-author of two very difficult-to-find books: Photoshop 7 & Illustrator 10: Create Great Advanced Graphics and Photoshop 7 Trade Secrets; he also co-authored the Photoshop World Dream Team Book, Volume 1; and is the author of Illustrator CS Killer Tips. Dave writes the “Classic Effects” and “Beginners' Workshop” columns for Photoshop User magazine, teaches at the Photoshop World Conference & Expo, and is the Lead Instructor for the Photoshop Seminar Tour. He is also featured on a series of instructional DVDs, such as Best of Photoshop User, Photoshop CS2 for Beginners, and Photoshop CS2 Layer Techniques.

In his spare time, Dave is the Graphics Editor for Layers magazine and dedicates the remainder of his time freaking out his Florida co-workers by wearing shorts to work every day, simply “because he can.” Dave lives in Odessa, Florida, with his wife Marlene and children, Stephanie and Michael.
