Travel photo tips on Adobe Live with the Pros

You’ve come back from a trip, and you’ve loaded your travel photos from your memory cards onto your computer. What next? Adobe Community Professionals Melissa Piccone, Jesús Ramirez, Theresa Jackson and I walk through some of our favorite Photoshop and Lightroom tips for travel photos. My segment, which is about creating panoramas in Photoshop and Lightroom, starts about 30 minutes into the recording. But it’s worth watching all four presenters.

Watch the show, originally streamed live on March 16, 2017:

Adobe Live with the Pros: Photoshop and Lightroom (65 minutes)

Note: Watching the recording requires the Adobe Connect web browser add-in, which is available on Macs and Windows PCs but not on all desktop and mobile platforms. (My understanding is that when an Adobe Connect presentation is live, you can watch it on any devices listed in the Adobe Connect system requirements.)

macOS 10.12 Sierra: Will Adobe software work?

Now that macOS 10.12 Sierra is available from the Mac App Store, you’re probably wondering whether your Adobe software will work in the new Mac operating system.

With every Mac system upgrade, information about compatibility is often not available on the first day the new system is available, and emerges over time. If you use your Mac to run a business or as a serious hobby, do not upgrade to Sierra until you’re prepared to recover if things don’t work out. (That applies to any operating system upgrade on any device.) Wait until you are confident that all of your software and hardware is compatible, then back up everything, then upgrade. With that in mind, here’s what I know so far about the state of Adobe software in Sierra.

How do P3 displays affect your workflow? – CreativePro.com article

Some new displays use a color space called P3, which is different than the sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces that designers and photographers have used for years. Is P3 an improvement, or a complication? I answer that question in an article I wrote for CreativePro.

Read my article at the following link:

How do P3 displays affect your workflow?

That article refines the observations about P3 displays that I originally explored in an earlier article on this blog, A look at the P3 color gamut of the iMac display (Retina, Late 2015). I wrote the earlier article when Apple first starting shipping P3 display built into the Late 2015 iMac. Today, Apple includes P3 displays in their top-of-the-line iMacs, MacBook Pros, iPhones, and iPad Pros.

InDesign to WordPress: iziExport review for InDesign Magazine

I reviewed iziExport for InDesign Magazine (November 2016).
