Learn More About New Adobe CC Team Projects

Adobe’s pro video tools have made enormous advancements in recent years. So much so, that the older CS versions are hardly recognizable when compared to the newest CC editions, in terms of new features and performance improvements added since then. Adobe has really poured a lot of effort into these tools, and it shows: the current video suite has gained significant adoption and is widely considered a leader in the industry. All of their video applications are available/included in the complete Creative Cloud (“All Apps”) subscription offering direct from the company.

Check Out All of the Adobe MAX 2015 Sneak Peeks!

SAN JOSE, Calif.October 13, 2015—At the record-breaking MAX conference last week, Adobe revealed 11 sneak peeks of technol­ogies they are working on but haven’t released yet. Some of these new features are absolutely mind-blowing and defy belief, yet the company did not web­cast the sneak peeks. But good news, you will find complete videos of each of them captured below!

Naturally, the Adobe says there aren’t any guarantees for what will appear in a production release, or when: “See the coolest demos of what we’re cooking up in the Adobe development labs, and be the first to get a peek at technologies that may (or may not) make it into future products and services.” But never­the­less, major new product features very often appear in these previews before they make it into the real tools (cases in point: Content-Aware Fill, Perspective Warp, Image Deblurring, and Defog/Dehaze).

Example Frames from Adobe's Video Deblurring Tool - Learn More About This New Technology

Last week we covered a wonderful story about a terrific new feature in the latest Photoshop CC release: the Camera Shake Reduction Tool, which was previously known as Photoshop Image Deblurring. This new capability has received a lot of press and attention – and, as shown in our previous article, it can really make a difference.

But accomplishing this feat for still images isn’t the only cool deblurring application Adobe has been working on lately… Adobe researcher Jue Wang has published a paper on an innova­tive new technique to deblur videos as well – which could be huge consid­ering how much handheld video footage is out there now, and growing every day. The devel­opment of this technology could be a big addition to flagship video editing tools like Adobe’s Premiere Pro.

Learn Video Editing! Free Premiere Elements 11 Tutorials [2 Hours]

January 28th, 2013 6 comments

Watch Adobe Premiere Elements 11 Free Tutorials

We’ve previously featured 30 hours of free video tutorials for Adobe’s Creative Suite 6, as well as four hours for Lightroom 4 – so here are some terrific (and free) learning resources for the recently released Elements 11 product line

In the course given below, the experts share how to get started with Premiere Elements 11 for editing your videos, the essentials of the software, new features added in PRE 11, how to use important tools and functions, plus their best tips and techniques. In total, there is over 2 hours of free video training, spanning 21 separate chapters.

Most modern cameras now take both great photos and videos, so Premiere Elements is well-integrated with Photoshop Elements for your image editing – and since many people use the two tools together, you may also be interested in three hours of free tutorials for learning how to use Photoshop Elements 11.

Because Elements 11 has an all-new intuitive editing environment with a revamped Organizer plus other new features, the content here doesn’t carry well to older versions of Premiere Elements.  However, we do also have a page still available with several hours of free tutorials for PRE 10 & 9 and earlier.

If you need a copy of Premiere or Photoshop Elements 11 to get going right away, just download the free trials and they will work fully on your computer for one month, which should be plenty of time to get through the classes. Note at the bottom of this page, you’ll also find quick demonstrations of the two programs.

September 6th, 2012 2 comments

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

A year ago Adobe featured probably their biggest promotion ever, the extremely popular “Switcher” offer for 50% off Premiere Pro and the Production Premium suite…

Now that CS6 is out, they’ve just relaunched the deal in a smaller but still very attractive form – they’re now offering 30% off the price of the Full CS6 Production Premium suite with coupon code SWITCH, or 40% off membership to the new Creative Cloud, which includes all CS6 tools and more.

Save up to 40% on Adobe CS6 Photo and Video Tools with New Promotion and Coupon Code!

The offer is geared for owners of competitive software as well as owners of older Adobe suites who can now buy the latest CS6 release (Windows or Mac) at a terrific savings, and these discounts are available all over the world…

The promotion is officially targeted at video users and creators, but because the suite contains top products like Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, and Audition in addition to Premiere Pro, After Effects, Prelude, and SpeedGrade (see the complete list of applications included), many customers can take advantage of this sale.  For example, the normal price of Photoshop CS6 Extended is US$999, but with this special you get that plus an entire suite of 8 other top products for US$1329 total.
