Mesdames et messieurs bonjour! Even though I'm still in Paris wrapping up our shoots here, I did see where starting today the Adobe Creative Cloud is now available, which ushers in a new era for Adobe, and a new opportunity for creative people all over the world (can't you just hear that ELO song in your head right now? "All over the world-er-er-erld.") If you're not up-to-date on the Creative Cloud, I did a post here a few weeks back with a quick Q&A about it and you can read it right here. Also, Adobe is offering a pretty incredible deal for existing Creative Suite customers to get on board --- just $29.99 a month for the first year. Here's the link to Adobe's site for more details. Congratulations for Adobe on the big launch, and Viva le Creative Cloud! :)


(Above: iPhone shot before the day got started). It couldn't have been a better crowd or location to wrap up my "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" live tour than what we had last week in London, England. What a great group of photographers --- totally engaged, very responsive, lots of great questions, and some of the most kind, genuine folks I've had the honor to preset to. Some even brought gifts (I got everything from guitar picks (including some really cool ones), chocolate bars, British Kit Kats, and more. My guest retoucher Glyn Dewis totally rocked it and gained LOTS of new fans, and it was such a kick sharing the stage with him. He showed loads of cool bonus stuff, and I sat in the crowd taking notes along with everyone else. Really a brilliant job and I learned a lot. A big thanks to…


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…


Today's the big announce day at Adobe, and I'm out here in San Francisco for the CS6 launch event, and everybody here is really psyched. Of course, for me it's all about Photoshop CS6, but obviously for a lot of folks that's just one part of a big Creative Suite package that was made much bigger by today's launch of the Adobe Creative Cloud. Get the full scoop on the Creative Cloud right here (it's cooler than you'd think, and Adobe really reached out to those folks still using CS3, and CS4 with a special deal for them, which I thought was really cool on their part). First go here David Wadhwani over at Adobe did a really great, to-the-point, quick summary of what the Creative Cloud is all about, and who it's designed for (and why), and it's definitely worth checking out. Here's…
