With the release of Adobe Creative Suite 6 came lots of improvements, changes and questions. The new Adobe applications have been optimized for 64 bit computers, interfaces have been streamlined, new tools have been added and others refined. The overall effect is a much improved and faster creative workflow. What’s new? What’s improved? What is the Adobe Creative Cloud?
So on July 18 and 25th, Tekserve along with AllCreative NY presented a panel of Adobe experts, Adobe specialists and authors for two nights of special panel discussions about Adobe Creative Suite 6. I was privileged to participate with this group of diverse and talented individuals, even though Jerron, “The Pixel Smith”, wouldn’t let anyone get a word in edgewise (just kidding Jerron). Occasionally we would go off topic, talking about some of our favorite apps like FX Factory, Dropbox and 1Password.
A lively crowd brought their questions and found out what the latest version of the Creative Suite could do for them. Here’s what they had to say about “Meet the Adobe Experts”.
