So what do you get with membership in NAPP? Well, first and foremost you get the magazine Photoshop User. Second, you get a members-only online community that features some of the most knowledgeable Photoshop users on the planet. This also includes weekly Photoshop video tutorials, columns, articles, news, and reviews. You also get NAPP-TV, a weekly podcast featuring Scott Kelby, Dave Cross and Matt Kloskowski, "The Photoshop Guys."
You also get discounts on hardware and software for computers, cameras, lenses, printers and seminars as well as online training. There are also discounts for car rentals and hotel stays. The 10-20% I save on these alone in a year pays for my membership. There is also the $100 USD discount on attendance at Photoshop World Conference and Expo.
You get an online portfolio where you can show off your work. Only NAPP members can create portfolios, but anyone can view them. Here is publisher Scott Kelby's Portfolio.
You also get online Photoshop tech support if you are having a problem figuring something out. That includes advice on Photoshop, advice on the purchase of products or services as well as digital photography related questions. These are one-on-one questions and user identities are kept confidential.
If you work with Adobe Photoshop then first and foremost, get Photoshop User. You will find it one of the best magazines that you will read. Then I highly recommend joining NAPP, It really wasn't until I joined NAPP that I realized what I was missing within the Photoshop world. If you want you can check out a back issue of Photoshop User. You can get a subscription to Photoshop User, by joining NAPP for $99 USD.
