At the end of the third fiscal quarter, Adobe broke the record in revenue. The financial results they reported for the Q3 of 2017 show the $1.84 billion income, which is 26% year-on-year revenue growth. Out of this sum, as much as $1.27 billion comes from Adobe’s Digital Media segment, with Creative revenue growing to $1.06 billion. Although many users aren’t happy with the subscription model, it seems that it’s been the ultimate solution for Adobe.
The pen tool is one of the most powerful tools in Photoshop’s arsenal. For making accurate selections (excluding hair, obviously), there’s little that comes close to it. For cutting out products from their background or masking hard edges, it’s an absolute lifesaver.
Now, the pen tool is about to get curvy. In this sneak peek video posted by Adobe, we see a demo of the new “Curvature Pen Tool”. Essentially, it’s a simplified version of the pen tool. It’s for those who don’t use the pen tool often enough to learn its intricacies, and those who just want to do a quick simple cut out or selection with ease.
For all those who are just starting off with Photoshop, Adobe has launched a free YouTube course to introduce you to the software and its most important features. Longtime Adobe evangelist Julieanne Kost is teaching you the basics, and even if you already have some experience – there may still be something new to learn.
Photoshop version 3.0 was the version that introduced me to Photoshop. It came out at the end of 1994, and I discovered it the following year while in college. I had no idea what I wanted to do with it at the time, but it was still amazing. I’d never seen anything like it, and I wanted to learn all about what it was and what it could do.
I saw an image scroll up my Facebook feed today that Adobe posted way back in 2013. It was the picture below, with the note that the version of Photoshop CC available at the time would require 733 floppy discs. Today it would probably be closer to 2,000. But how does Photoshop 3.0 stack up against its future selves?
If you’re into creating video content, then you’re definitely going to want to set aside some time to watch this one. Probably a few evenings. Adobe Worldwide Evangelist, Jason Levine, has put together this amazing seven video course on how to make great videos.

Many Lightroom users have been complaining about the software being too slow. It seems that Adobe has heard the complaints, and they’ve made their top priority to improve the performance of Lightroom. In a blog post on Adobe’s website, they call the users to submit their complaints, and Adobe team shall collect the data and work on the improvements of the most common issues.
People are using photographs in videos for all kinds of reasons these days. Sometimes it’s to supplement a behind the scenes shoot or a vlog. Maybe you’ve shot a few thousand stills to turn into a timelapse. Or, perhaps still photos is the entire content of your video slideshow. Whatever the reason, creating videos from stills is still confusing to many people.
If you don’t want to create something completely from scratch yourself there are services like Animoto. But if you want a little more control, something like Adobe Premiere Pro will give it to you. This video from filmmaker Jason Boone offers 7 great tips for working with your photographs and stills timelapse sequences inside Premiere Pro.
Have you updated to version 2017.1 of Adobe Premiere Pro? According to some users on the Adobe forum, their files are disappearing, and in some cases, they even get completely deleted. One of the users reports that after clicking on the “clean unused” Media Cache Database, the files from one of the previous projects were completely missing when he tried to reopen the project. Can this be an accident and an isolated case, or is it the global problem?
Adobe has been experimenting with new features and algorithms lately. They have recently tested a solution that applies the style of one photo to the other. But this new feature could be groundbreaking for all the selfie lovers out there.
In their latest video, they offered a preview of the future of selfie photography using artificial intelligence and deep learning. It suggests that in future we may be able to create pretty decent portraits from not-so-good selfie snapshots.
