PRESS RELEASE: Adobe Photoshop TV Reaches 2 Million Downloads in a Single Month Video Podcast Illustrates Popularity of Podcasting as Media Alternative


(Tampa, Florida - June 1, 2006) The producers of the highly trafficked video Podcast, Adobe® Photoshop® TV (www.photoshoptv.com) report today that their weekly presentation has been downloaded over two million times in the month of May 2006, drawing more individual viewers than a typical NHL playoff game broadcast*.

Featuring Dave Cross, Matt Kloskowski and best-selling author Scott Kelby, Photoshop TV is a weekly program that gives viewers tutorials, tips, secrets and new techniques for making the most of Adobe Photoshop software. Along with their educational content, the “Photoshop Guys” have become known for peppering their program with casual and humorous repartee and regularly feature prominent guests from the creative industry.

Following its original launch in October 2005, Adobe Photoshop TV quickly soared to #1 in the iTunes Music Store.

“This truly points to the amazing popularity podcasts have gained,” says Scott Kelby. “It tells us that people are really tapping into new avenues of information and entertainment and that they never grow tired of learning new things. I’m convinced podcasting will continue to increase in popularity and that it has taken its rightful place as an information resource.”
