Creative Cloud Desktop Upgrade 7/24: Typekit Issues (or is it just me?)

Array ( [post_title] => Creative Cloud Desktop Upgrade 7/24: Typekit Issues (or is it just me?) [post_content] =>

Last night (7/25), the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app deployed an upgrade. I was minutes away from a presentation, so I wanted to dismiss the update, but there was no option to decline; it was either upgrade or quit. I couldn’t quit, because I wanted to show the features in ACC. The other two speakers had already run the update and seemed to have no issues, so I took a deep breath and ran it. For good measure, I rebooted. To set up for my first topic, I opened a PSD with missing fonts, and received no “missing font” warning, and (Read more...)

When Smart Objects Are Not So Smart

Array ( [post_title] => When Smart Objects Are Not So Smart [post_content] =>

Smart Objects offer some wonderful flexibility in Photoshop; they allow endless transformations without a cumulative loss of data, because each transformation is a fresh start from the original data, whether that data is raster or vector. Why, you can even open a Camera Raw file as a Smart Object, which allows you to go back to the Camera Raw data for color correction, noise reduction, or straightening—it’s the ultimate in non-destructive editing.

But there are two scenarios in which Smart Objects act a bit dumb.

Creative Cloud: Some Thoughts on Cumulus Adobus

CC_Icon_mine

On Monday, May 6th, in the AdobeMAX keynote prefaced (somewhat ominously) by a driving instrumental snippet from the Allman Brothers’ “Whipping Post,” Adobe announced that the next versions of its creative tools will be designated “CC” — and will be available only via Creative Cloud subscriptions. This means the end of perpetual (conventional) licenses. Adobe will continue to sell perpetual licenses for CS6, but only by download — no boxed software. The new CC tools will become available on June 17th.

There are compelling new features in CC:

Look Sharp: Handling Text and Vector Content in Photoshop

Let’s get something straight: Photoshop is NOT a page layout program!

While it’s been true that we could create text and vector shapes for some time in Photoshop, the addition of Paragraph and Character styles in Photoshop CS6 made me cringe—it’s like an endorsement of bad behavior.

I understand that someone who knows only Photoshop might be tempted to create projects with text in Photoshop. I recently heard of a photographyer submitting his files for an 80-page coffee-table book…as 80 layered Photoshop files.

JUST TO CLARIFY: This is only true for images in which the first layer comp hides some effects (aka layer styles).

MaskPart

If you’ve ever had to silhouette a girl with windblown hair, you know what a challenge it can be to create the perfect mask. I’ve always used channels, duplicating the best one and using Levels, Curves and judicious handwork to create a mask. As long as the subject has some contrast with the background, there’s hope, but, even then, it can be time-consuming.

The ideal masking solution faithfully captures the shape of the subject, maintains translucency and soft transitions, and can be used non-destructively. It’s not a simple problem to solve, which is probably why I haven’t found a product (Read more...)
