Adobe Stock- ideas for using

I'm interested in seeing how people envisage using Adobe Stock. I realise that there is a cost for using the images- either one of price or a subscription, but the images can be used without paying if you have a watermark on it. This means that someone could create a piece of work using Adobe Stock artwork and then pay to remove the watermark when needed. It strikes me that this would be an interesting potential tool in the classroom. How would you envisage using it in your classes?

It has been obvious over the past year or so that there is a disadvantage having apps that are only available on iOS. This is in part due to the small size of the development teams involved (you can't risk everything developing on all platforms). There is now a beta program for testing Adobe Apps on Android devices. You can join here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/115649485021140879434 I'm an Apple user myself, but strongly believe that Adobe apps should appear on all platforms, so if you... Read More

Adobe needs Different ways to deal with Education

Adobe needs to address solutions for Academics that are not the same as for business. For instance - we cannot update in the middle of the semester - The creative cloud app won't work unless updated - that would take the IT, unlocking all the compluters and closing down our computer labs (in the middle of exams, etc) Also, we have a license with our IT department's login - students cannot sync fonts, etc unless they ALSO have a paid login.

In this reagard I am talking of using the advanced features in Adobe software and relating technologies. How do you teach GREP or Variable data? How do you craft reasonable excursuses for using XML and datasets with Illustrator? Wha... Read More

My school is going to be starting a brand new digital art track in our art program in the fall. I would like to promote the course and generate some excitement and peek interest, but don't have enough experience in the right software to make my own without taking 3 months! Does anyone know of something that's already out there and available for reuse? Thanks!

I work in a primary school and currently Acrobat is only used by our leadership team. I've heard about Acrobat being used to produce student portfolios, but the examples I've seen have all been high school based. Is anyone using Acrobat with younger students - and if so, how? I'd love to get some ideas to start us off.
