September 4th, 2014 6 comments

The new Creative Cloud (CC) 2014 is the most sophisticated and powerful toolset Adobe has ever released and recently readers have been asking for solid training materials to learn how to best use these applications…

Download the Free "Dreamweaver CC Basics" Digital Book!

Last year we spread the word on over 30 hours of free video tutorials for CS6, and last month we published details on a fantastic new ebook for getting started learning the Adobe CC/CS6 Design Suite (202 pages).  But if you’re looking for a solid primer or helpful beginner’s lessons for Adobe Dreamweaver, that’s harder to find.

Fortunately there are two new books you can download that will teach you the essentials of Adobe Dreamweaver for free, thanks to the generosity of author Professor Thomas Payne… He writes:

“These tutorials are designed to get you through the basics of making web sites in Dreamweaver with the most flexibility and the least amount of work. Think of them as supplying you with a toolbox full of tools to start making good websites.

August 15th, 2014 17 comments

The 2015 edition of the Creative Cloud is the most powerful and versatile toolset Adobe has ever produced and we’re seeing a lot of demand for good training resources to learn how to best use this fast-growing product

Get the Free "Adobe CC Design Basics" eBook!

Last year we posted details on over 1,000 pages of free ebooks for CS6.  But if you’re just getting started with the core CC 2015 design tools, what’s better than a step-by-step book that will teach you the essentials of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign from the ground up?

Fortunately there’s a very helpful new book you can download that will teach you all of this for free, courtesy of author Professor Thomas Payne… The way the book does this is by intro­ducing and explain­ing the tools in a logical way that builds upon what is previ­ously learned. These applica­tions present a vast array of buttons and gadgets that can be over­whelming to the new user. This book makes sense of it all, not showing how every­thing works, but instead giving a found­ation and a path to learn about all those controls and what they can do for you.

BREAKING NEWS (New York) — Adobe has just announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2014 release, with hundreds of new features and enhancements across their creative product line (all tools) focusing on workflow, performance, and connectivity.  In this fast-paced and rapidly evolving world of technology and platforms, CC 2014 succeeds the CC 2013 version which launched last June, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012. So thinking in the old terms, this would roughly be equivalent to CS8 (and more).
