THE ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD

Zombies, Brains, and Adobe’s Creative Cloud

In April, Adobe’s Russell Brown brought his Art Directors Invitational Master class (ADIM) to Boulder, Colorado. As Adobe’s long-running «resident mad scientist» (and senior creative director), Russell has led ADIM in various cities since the 1990s, but this was the first ADIM after a five-year hiatus.

This year’s theme involved monsters, zombies, brains, and—the Adobe Creative Cloud. Amazingly, Ed and Marsha Edmunds, stars of the Travel Channel’s TV show Making Monsters, brought in their talented team from Distortions Unlimited to create some outrageously realistic props, including a giant head with its brain exposed, which

Photoshops Not-So-Cloudy Future

Almost no other software has been as instrumental and defining for an industry as Adobe’s Photoshop Suite has been for photography and imaging. Adobe’s famous «graphic editing program» (they get really annoyed if it’s called anything else, especially «image manipulation tool») has gone through several versions over the years, and with its latest iteration, Photoshop Creative Cloud a.k.a Photoshop CC, it has entered a brand new era.

We’ll begin this article with some clarifications. Unlike what most users believe, and what has been bandied about the internet, the new version of Photoshop is not limited to working only with internet

Photoshop

Since the arrival of Photoshop CS over 10 years ago. Photoshop has included its own integrated Raw converter. The Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) plug-in has evolved greatly since its inception in 2003, and with Photoshop’s universal appeal amongst professionals and enthusiasts alike, has a wide user base.

And it’s easy to see why as well. From browsing your Raw files in Adobe Bridge (supplied with Photoshop), you can then seamlessly open them in Adobe Camera Raw before carrying on rating your images in Photoshop, offering a simplified workflow.

There’s also a wealth of editing controls available to you, including tods

KNOW HOW

I met Juan Ramon (see photos at right) riding his front-wheel drive wheelchair in the town of Granada. He went zipping by in traffic. When I waved, he spun it around and zoomed up to talk to me.

It’s a 5-speed, or 15-speed if he shifts the top chain- wheel by hand. The pedals have been replaced by handles. The back part is a regular wheelchair. The front part attaches just the same way the front caster assembly used to. This hand-pedal wheelchair is a great design solution. Not only does it allow him to get around as fast as

Adobe shoots for the clouds but leaves key features grounded at launch

Last year’s Creative Cloud review advised that Adobe would have to work fast to keep users hooked after the first year, especially for those invested in packaged CS6 software. Little more than a year later, Creative Cloud is now mandatory—and the more things change, the more they seem to stay the same.

While Adobe has mostly delivered on updated desktop applications, the glue holding the whole subscription-based service together remains a work in progress, with key features MIA at launch. Unlike last year, customers are forced to be

CREATIVE CLOUD — HERO OR VILLAIN?

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED PHOTOGRAPHER AND FILMMAKER DREW GARDNER SHARES HIS VIEWS ON ADOBE’S CONTROVERSIAL NEW SUBSCRIPTION-BASED SERVICE

IN ADDITION ТО knowing a thing or two about software, the people over at Adobe certainly know how to stir up a lively debate. No one can deny them their software-making ability — the vast majority of photographers, in fact the creative world as as whole, ‘would grind to a halt without it! However, you’re probably aware that Adobe recently threw the industry a curveball with the launch of Creative Cloud.

The software ship seemed to be sailing along just fine (with Adobe offering

CAPTURE & SYNC WITH ADOBE KULER FOR iPHONE

One of the more intriguing Adobe Creative Cloud services is Kuler, originally a Flash-based web app that allows designers to experiment with and save five-color swatches (called «themes») for use in the company’s desktop applications.

Derived from the Mauritian Creole word for «color,» Adobe Kuler has now expanded to a free iPhone companion app that faithfully reproduces the web-based playground, adding the ability to capture colors using the handset’s built-in camera and automatically sync them back to a Creative Cloud account.

Kuler features a full range of color rules: Analogous, Monochromatic, Triad, Complementary, Compound, Shades, or even something custom, and
