This episode of Tips from the Top Floor is coming to you from the Autobahn, or rather from the New York thruway while Chris is on his way up to Rochester, New York. Chris talks about Adobe’s latest Lightroom update and how that didn’t quite work out as expected and made quite a few people pretty angry. Come to various locations of Chris’ latest Coast2Coast tour through the United States, including San Diego and New York. Also find out about what his plans are for Rochester and for Rhinebeck in upstate New York. Chris’ flightmare adventure includes a crew that came in late, a sick passenger, a drunk passenger and an airshow.
