    Last week I was at Adobe's Creative Cloud launch event out in San Francisco, and after getting a lot more details on what the Creative Cloud is all about, I have I've gone from cautiously curious to really excited. I think this is going to open a lot of new opportunities and put some amazing tools in the hands of creative pros that were previously out of their reach. But I know from mentioning this briefly last week, a lot of folks have a lot of questions (I did too), and I thought I'd tackle some of the most-asked questions I've been getting here and see if this helps. But before we get to the questions, I thought I would at least try to explain, in one brief paragraph, what the Creative Cloud is. Here's how I understand it: "It's two things: (1) You…

    I had just gotten back from the CS6 launch in San Francisco, and just hours later I was on already on a plane headed to London, and my internal clock is so messed up, I'm not sure which day it is. I had hopde to post a Q&A on the Creative Cloud launch today, but I got so far behind on everything that it just got away from me. Please drop back here on Monday, as my plan is to post it then. Sorry for the delay. Nothing like high tea with two proper English gentleman. Sadly, all I could find were these two blokes. ;-) What a great way to start my London trip; Met up yesterday with two of my good buddies, Dave Clayton and Glyn Dewis, see above. (by the way --- Glyn is joining me on-stage Saturday in the afternoon to do a guest…

    Photoshop CS6 : What’s in it for photographers?

    First, thanks Scott for having me back, I always enjoy the opportunity to reach so many like-minded Photoshop users and photographers in one place. Photoshop means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but today I want to answer one of the questions I get from photographers – “what’s in it for us?”. The answer – more than ever.

    Photoshop CS5 was one of our strongest releases to date; even though we grappled with the enormous mountain that was Cocoa, we still delivered a broad, powerful and very magical release. How do you follow that? Well, without a major architectural change we were able to respond with 62% more features than CS5! Here’s what excites me as a photographer.

    Lets go from the general to the specific…

    Adobe Camera Raw 7.0
    For those of you enjoying Lightroom 4, you’re already aware that we have an entirely new raw processing engine. The new technology features a revamped UI with sliders all set to an equal start point; new auto functionality and most dramatically, new controls for shadows and highlights. As the below image from my iPhone shows, even shooting into the sun, you have considerably more latitude with your exposures. Why a phone you ask? If this is what can be done with a heavily compressed JPEG – imagine how nice the raw images look (they look amazing).

    I shouldn’t fail to mention that local adjustments (by brush or graduated filter) have nearly doubled in number!

    Mini Bridge
    Mini Bridge can now run in a filmstrip; if you’re coming from Elements or Lightroom, you’ll appreciate the familiar interface. As before, Mini Bridge taps the power of Bridge and serves it up in the flexibility of a panel (you can drag and resize it as you like). Bridge has now been rewritten as a 64-bit native application; bottom-line, we can support as much memory as you have available. Faster, more stable and with a cleaner interface than ever before. I find that most photographers are spending a great deal of time in Lightroom, I’m no exception; my workflow (and I’ve found many who share it) is to get as far as I can in LR, then export DNG files {my HDR candidates, panos, composites, fine-art and things which need retouching} to a folder – I target that folder from within Photoshop in Mini Bridge.

    Interface
    This is a feature for everyone and I mention it because there’s much more than meets the eye. You can’t miss Photoshop’s new dark interface and we hope you like it. The darker tone helps make the image the center of your work; plus it’s consistent with Lightroom and our video applications, all of which are increasingly being used alongside Photoshop. This feature is anything but just a fresh coat of paint though; we replaced over 1,900 icons and policed alignment, cursors, buttons, layout and even grammar throughout the application.

    If you’re fond of the old look (or two other options), you can easily change the UI tone in preferences. Our research strongly supports our default choice of dark grey, but we gave you a 4-way switch just in-case.

    Background Save/Auto Recovery
    One of the things I love about Lightroom is that it can save quietly in the background while I continue working; no waiting for a progress bar before I can continue on – thanks to Background Save, Photoshop can too. We didn’t stop there though, this technology gave us the ability to Auto Recover as well; this is one of those features you can’t really appreciate until it saves you. A few weeks back I was on a flight back from New York, busily putting together a demo in Photoshop; I had ignored my low battery indicators and my machine went dark in the middle of an operation – so frustrating. Hours later, back at my desk, I plugged my machine in and powered up; there were my open documents, patiently waiting in Photoshop – it just worked.

    Gradient Map Presets
    If you love Black & White as I do, you’ll definitely appreciate the new Gradient Map “Photographic Toning” presets for the adjustment layer of the same name.

    Color Lookup
    The new Color Lookup adjustment layer deserves a post of its own…

    Hi Gang: Wow --- what a whirlwind trip --- up one day, back the next on the red eye, but totally worth it!!! On Friday, I'm planning a Q&A about the Creative Cloud, which I'm totally psyched about, and I have a lot to share about it, but I'm literally at the airport catching my red-eye flight home, so it's going to have to wait until them. The launch event itself, held at San Francisco's de Young Fine Arts Museum, was a big hit and we got to hear from Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayan, Senior VP of Digital Media David Wadhwani, and Jeffrey Veen (Founder and former CEO of TypeKit, now part of Adobe). What I was most interested in was today launch of the Creative Cloud, and I have to say, I was really impressed (there's a lot more to it than I…
