It might not be Adobe’s most widely used program for photo management, but Adobe Bridge plays a vital role in many photographers’ workflow, mine included.
Yesterday, Adobe made a fleet-wide update to its photography suit. It added boundary warp to Lightroom, updated Camera Raw and made a few fixes to Photoshop.
Now, if you are like me, you are probably going to jump on that update and hit that button as soon as you spot it on the Creative Cloud App. But some cautious users may want to hold off for a few days to see if any glitches associated with this update pop up online. I mean, it’s not like Adobe does not have a bad history when it comes to updates. In June an update nuked the healing brush and in December another update killed the Liquify tool.
If you did update and realized that you want to go back to what’s considered the stablest version ever – Photoshop 2014, photographer Chris Lambeth has a priceless tip for you: you can revert to that version of Photoshop quite easily.
Adobe’s Content Aware Fill tool is one of the most incredible pieces of editing technology to come around in a long time. Sure, it’s nothing more than an automated clone and stamp tool, but with each update it seems to get more and more intelligent, making removal of unwanted objects more simple than ever.
To demonstrate, YouTube user wopkins has created a helpful tutorial showing how the Content Aware Fill tool can be used to help finish your homework, make a sandwich and even clean your room! [Read more…]
Adobe released a new feature for the photographers and other creative using its Creative Cloud services, which promises to help build a personalized portfolio website in minutes.
Seeking to assist creatives in sharing the work they create using its software, Adobe Portfolio will automatically sync projects with the user’s Behance profile
The new tool is already available.
The updates bring a host of new and revamped capabilities for Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC and Audition CC. Below, we’ll dive into some of the details of the updates. [Read more…]
I recently had to do some rough photo adjustments on a computer that only had an older version of Lighroom installed on it (Lightroom 3).
WOW – I had no idea how much I rely on some of the pretty fundamental tools available in Lightroom CC that were either not available or were not that good in previous versions.
So here is my list of the five most under-appreciated tools in Lightroom CC, and how I use them.
Over the last two years adobe has made significant push to move our creative flow into the cloud and into mobile. In fact, it seems that moving to mobile is a core part of Adobe’s strategy and understandably so.
Creative Brad Colbow took a good hard look at this strategy and his deconstruction of Adobe’s (over 30) new mobile apps is an eye opener. In essence Brad complains that the move into Adobe’s iOS app is nothing like the experience that you would get by using the desktop apps. This is a very interesting claim. Especially with the new iPad Pro coming out. You would expect the iPad pro to give you a smooth desktop-like experience, however, according to Brad, you are stuck with many apps, each only good for one task. In fact, Brad goes as far as saying that Adobe is experimenting on their users, with the iOS apps driving a completely different workflow that their desktop “brother apps”
If opt for a Microsoft’s surface for example you will get similar to desktop experience while retaining a tablet form factor.
Brad does recognize that this experimentation may be good for evolving the way we create using new interfaces, he just wishes he could still use the Adobe Suit the way he likes and used to.
