I’ve Got My Ticket For the Long Way ‘Round…

Sat, 08 Feb 2014 00:42:26 +0000

From discovering Adobe my first week in college & sending away $10 for an ATM Light floppy disk, to teaching Photoshop in college & starting a Web design career, to joining the company itself in 2000, I’ve had a very special relationship with this place. It has enabled & enlivened my creativity on so many […]

The Blog Is Dead. Long Live the Blog!

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 20:05:09 +0000

(No, this isn’t quite my last post here. I think I’ve got one more left in me.) I’m so pleased that many folks have asked that I keep blogging after leaving Adobe. I’ve therefore set up an embryonic new blog at—wait for it— Yes, the design is a work in progress! (Tips & WordPress expertise […]

A few of my favorite posts

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 19:21:26 +0000

Non-exhaustive, if perhaps exhausting, here’s a list of some posts that I think have held up: The Secret Life of Smart Filters explains why PS doesn’t feature filters inside adjustment layers (we tried!). The follow-on post, Simplicity vs. Power in Photoshop, is a little more conceptual, but I still like it. In Photoshop, as seen through Johnny […]

Come to ADIM 2014

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 17:03:57 +0000

If not for this man & this conference, I wouldn’t be here today. In 2002 Adobe was poised to lay me off. I’d poured 12 hours per day for two years into LiveMotion, but it just wasn’t gonna succeed, and the project was canceled. We were given 30 days to find something new, and my attempts […]

You wanted Photoshop faster, more efficient? You got it.

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 15:59:15 +0000

“What if all we did was make apps faster?” I asked a few weeks back. I’m pleased to say that the latest update to Photoshop CC makes the app faster in two notable ways: Sharpen images 5 to 20 times faster. Make PSDs far lighter weight. In the first case, an absolutely fundamental capability of […]

Think On My Sins: Configurator & the simplification of Adobe tools

Fri, 07 Feb 2014 06:25:33 +0000

I fought the sprawl & the sprawl won. I always intended to do a long series on what I’ve learned from failures, yet this will be the second & final installment (a bit of a meta-failure). Well, take it for what it’s worth. In my many years working on Photoshop, I was sort of obsessed […]

I was… Major Mancandy

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 09:42:40 +0000

Did I put it all out there for Photoshop? Yes, from time to time I did. :-) Scott Kelby posted a taste of the little Star Trek spoof/homage we filmed for Photoshop World a couple of years back. This is the one & only time in my life I’ve been dubbed “Major Mancandy”: Update: RC […]

“Ask Me About The Pen Tool”

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 06:42:38 +0000

Remember “The Girl With The Photoshop Tattoo?” Check out the commitment Edge Animate PM Sarah Hunt (@sarahwhatsup) made to her love of vectors & design: Sarah writes, Before joining Adobe I was a unicorn covering a broad span of disciplines related to design, code and animation. For years I weaved my way in and out of […]

The Photoshop team blog features a mixture of product info & great profiles of artists (e.g. an interview with astronaut-photographer Chris Hadfield). The Lightroom Journal features […]

GI Jens: A photographer’s epic self-promotion

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 15:18:22 +0000

What’s with photography-loving German Northern European dudes named Jens making little dolls of themselves? When I first started beta testing for Adobe, I remember hearing something from GoLive land about a “Jens doll” made to quasi-honor one of the engineers, photography enthusiast Jens C. Neffe. (Why do I remember this after 15 years, and not […]

Okay, I admit it…

OT: Electric cars that get you HOV lane access

Tue, 04 Feb 2014 14:30:06 +0000

Now that I’ll have a >2mi commute for the first time in a decade, I’m considering cars that qualify for single-occupant use of California’s carpool (HOV) lanes. In case you’re in the market, here are some quick impressions: Chevy Volt. It was like driving a $40,000 bowl of oatmeal (and it seats just four). Its […]
