Upgrading to CX 5.5 Has Never Been Easier
Get behind the wheel of the most advanced 3D plug-in for Photoshop CS3 by upgrading your older licence of Strata 3D. Extend your capabilities and possibilies for 2D and 3D design. For the remainder of May, the price to upgrade from a legacy version of Strata 3D CX (before version 5) has been cut to $149.

Simply purchase a legacy upgrade before May 31st and enter the coupon code Legadisc50 on the checkout page to receive the $150 discount.
Watch Challenge Winners Announced
The watch challenge has come to a close. Although all the entries were great, Dasch pulled out another victory with his hilarious "Santa" watch.

John Hunter Barrie came in second with a Christmas entry, and Krystof Woloszczak rounded out third place with Captain Nemo's watch from the Nautilus.

New Strata Training Class In Vegas
The Las Vegas Strata training session we've been chatting up for some time is now official. Run by the long-time Strata Trainers over at WestRim, this one is sure to inspire.

Lex de Azevedo will be presenting the Strata 3D ProSkills course on June 25th to 27th in the Fairfield Inn. Be sure to check out the site for more information, and remember to sign up before all the spaces have been taken.
The Orphaned Works Act
There is an important piece of legislation being considered right now that should be very important to US Illustrators and independent artists. The Orphaned Works Act would require you to create copies of every piece you've ever created and register it with multiple private registries, or risk giving up any rights to unregistered work you've created.

This is, of course, a huge shift in copyright, and should concern every designer, illustrator and design agency.
