Become the Next Photoshop Evangelist and Win CS5.5 + Free Trip

February 16th, 2012 4 comments

[UPDATE – Also see our new Adobe CC 2017 Holiday Giveaway!]

Be the Next Photoshop Evangelist and Win CS5.5 plus a Free Trip

If you like Photoshop and want a free paid trip to Photoshop World plus a CS5.5 suite, check out Adobe’s Next Photoshop Evangelist contest…  All you have to do is create and upload a 1-2 minute video demonstrating your favorite “Hidden Gem” in Photoshop CS5.

What’s a hidden gem? Essentially, it’s just a lesser-known feature or workflow of the product that you find valuable – perhaps using a function or tool in a way that Adobe didn’t imagine… For some great examples, check out this helpful series of Photoshop Hidden Gems that Adobe produced.

Submit your video here »

The top 5 videos will be selected and voted on, with the winner receiving a $4,000-$6,000 prize package including a trip to the PSW Conference either in Washington, D.C. this spring, or in Las Vegas this fall – plus a full copy of CS5.5 Design Standard. The trip includes roundtrip airfare, lodging, event admission, and spending money – plus meeting Adobe’s Photoshop Product Team personally and the opportunity to demonstrate your hidden gem live at the show. Four runners-up will get a free $1,000 copy of Photoshop CS5 Extended.

Photoshop CS6: New Content-Aware Move, Patch, and Extend Tools

February 14th, 2012 7 comments

We’ve seen a few sneak peeks already of what Adobe’s working on now in Photoshop – but this new one is the best to date, it’s pretty incredible… They don’t say which release these capabilities could make it in (or when), but presumably it’s Photoshop CS6.

Photoshop CS6(?) Sneak Peek by Bryan O’Neil Hughes, Senior Product Manager

This new demonstration takes the much-praised concept of Content-Aware Fill that was introduced in Creative Suite 5 and carries it much further with new Content-Aware Move, Extend, and Patch tool features. It’s hard to explain but you can see how it works with the 2½ minute video below.

Last month we actually put together a guide to getting the best results with Photoshop CS5’s Content-Aware Fill, but these new tools clearly make the work much faster, simpler, and more flexible… and dare we say magical (see the “before and after” screengrabs below the video).

See more advanced features of Photoshop Content-Aware technology. Straight from Photoshop Senior Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes, this video shares how to seamlessly move, extend, remove, or patch an object from an image.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 – Another Look? More Sneak Peeks [VIDEO]

February 8th, 2012 9 comments

Last month Adobe quietly revealed a first look at Photoshop CS6, which was received with hundreds of thousands of views…  And now we have second and third looks, new sneak peeks which focus on performance gains and vector improvements (with dashed and dotted lines).

Adobe Photoshop CS6 - Icon Sneak Peek

As images grow larger and larger in resolution and file size, even simple actions such as saving your files can slow down productivity – which has been a point of interest in Photoshop CS5. In this preview, a smooth and oft-requested Background Save capability is introduced allowing you to fully continue working while all file saving takes place in the background, regardless of size or compression.

Large images also slow down functions like Liquify… In the video, a 100MB photograph lags when loading and editing in Photoshop CS5. Now this new Photoshop (CS6 we presume) uses the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to greater effect to bring real-time loading and editing responsiveness. See how much faster and crisper the Liquify filter works, enabling effectively unlimited brush sizes:

February 6th, 2012 3 comments

[UPDATE – See all of Adobe’s current deals & discounts!]

We have word of a new coupon code you can use get an instant 15% off orders placed at the Adobe Store – for eight days only…

Save 15% instantly with new Adobe coupon code!

You can receive a one-time savings of 15% off orders of US$375 or more containing full or upgrade versions of any Adobe software. In order to redeem the 15% discount, you must have the special promotion code LOVE15 applied in your Adobe shopping cart.

And good news for students: the offer is valid for both commercial and education customers – meaning you can get an additional 15% off the already-discounted academic pricing.

Outside of that exceptional case, the coupon may not be used in conjunction with any other offers – meaning you can’t combine it either with the current half-price on Lightroom offer, or with the 20% discount on CS5.5 upgrades offer (both of which are better anyway, and worldwide).
