Using Adobe Slate to Disseminate Scientific Information for Everyone

Posted on Nov 15, 2015 by Ricardo Gomez Last Activity on Nov 15, 2015

This Slate Story describes how fetal chromosomal anomalies can be diagnosed by a simple maternal blood sample, even during the first trimester of pregnancy. It is increasingly being used in Europe. We collaborate with several institutions to do the research for the first time in Chile, following our philosophy of making medicine available for every pregnant women in our region (LatinoAmérica).

Hi, In my 20+ years developing web design for 150+ companies in my country Ecuador, I learned that we need to follow some steps before present a integral websolution to the client. In this matter I give you some guidelines to start with your project, and take it to safe shore. 1. Before the first meeting:Be prepared. Never let the luck be part of your first encounter. Try to known everything of your client, what he needs, type of business, product overview, # employees, market share, etc. If knownledge is power, be as powerfull as you need to. 2. First interview, be ready for anythingThe first encounter (face to face, phone or email) with the client are so important, that you must present yourself with the very best. Your background activities, that make you the BEST, talk only about what make you the best thing since slice bread! always put a smile in your face, be confident, and never doubt your answers. But first, listen very carefull what the client have to say. 3. Contract, and promisesIf your f... Read More

Have Some Fun With Faces In Adobe Photoshop Fix CC

Posted on Oct 13, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 13, 2015

Having done a deep dive in Photoshop Fix CC, you may have noticed I “glossed” over the Face option found in the Liquify feature of this app which shares some features of its Photoshop relative. This was deliberate because the amount of fun you can have with the Face option in Liquify should be illegal. Before we start there are a couple of things you need to know: The face needs to unobstructed. No profiles, pets or other obstructions in front of the face. My profile image used at Graphics Software won’t be recognized because I am leaning against my left hand. This technique is somewhat destructive. Any changes made are applied directly to the image, not in a separate layer. Resist the temptation to exaggerate the changes. The art of retouching is the art of subtlety. If your intention is to ridicule the subject … move on. This also explains why I chose a photo I took of one of the Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi’an, China. With that in mind, let’s get started.

How To Use Adobe Photoshop Fix CC

Posted on Oct 13, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 13, 2015

The latest addition to the Adobe Touch apps lineup, Adobe Photoshop Fix CC, is the next step in  the the process of bringing the power of Adobe Photoshop to smartphones and tablets.It never ceases to amaze me how people who should know better wonder why there isn’t a version of Photoshop for devices. One reason is there is so much to Photoshop that, if Adobe were able to pull off this engineering feat, our devices would be melting in our hands. Instead, the wizards at Adobe are bringing the core competencies of Photoshop- Imaging and Compositing – to devices by splitting them and putting them in separate apps. The first step in this process was the compositing piece which appeared in Adobe Photoshop Mix CC. This week, the other competency – Retouching/Imaging – has been added to the lineup with the release of Adobe Photoshop Fix CC. Note: At the time this was written Adobe Fix CC is an iOS-only app. Adobe is on record as saying Android versions of this and other Touc... Read More

Adobe Comp CC Gets A Major Update

Posted on Oct 13, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 13, 2015

A couple of months back I wrote a “How To” dealing with a new Adobe Mobile App named Adobe Comp CC and a little later I wrote a 6-part  series – An Emerging Workflow-  on how the Mobile Apps and the Desktop apps, when combined with a Creative Cloud Library, provide the graphics professional with the opportunity to create anywhere. Little did I know, when writing those pieces, that the Adobe Wizards had come to the same conclusion and were working on not only improving the mobile apps but also improving the workflow between the apps and the Desktop Graphics applications such as Photoshop CC 2015, Illustrator CC 2015 and InDesignCC 2015. At the beginning of October, during its annual Adobe Max Creativity Conference, Adobe unveiled its strategy to establish this workflow by not only introducing a number of new products but also making significant improvements to its roster of mobile and desktop apps with an eye to not only having them integr...

How To Create Amazing Swirl Effects In Adobe Photoshop CC

Posted on Oct 13, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 13, 2015

Much of the content I write about deals with practical uses of the software we use every day. The topics range from colour correction of images to drawing icons. Every now and then I, like many of you, get a a bit bored with being practical and get into the mood of doing something impractical and just seeing what the software can do. Inevitably the result is totally unexpected, rather neat and suddenly useful in a way you had never considered. In this “How To” I started playing what I call “What if …” games with an image of an oak tree sporting its fall foliage I finished with a rather abstract swirl of color, shown above, that could be used as a background for another image or a web page. Here’s the neat thing about this technique: if you can duplicate an image, apply a couple of filters and a blend mode you,too, can create some rather fascinating images.

How To Use The Cover Video Adobe Muse Widget From 123Muse

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Sep 28, 2015

“Wouldn’t it be great if you could create a responsive Parallax Scrolling page in Adobe Muse that contains video!” Turns out, the wizards at 123Muse have created a Muse Widget that does exactly that. The widget, named Cover Video, creates full screen video background pages that work smoothly in Parallax-based landing pages. What really makes this widget impressive is that it is responsive meaning your video will adjust to  desktops, tablets and smartphones with no distortion. Before I get going keep in mind you will need the following assets: MP4 version of the video. WebM version of the video. Jpg. Screen shot of the video’s first frame that will be used as a Poster frame.

How To Create A Text Mask In Adobe Illustrator CC

Posted on Sep 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Oct 4, 2015

So far I have shown how text can be used as a mask in Photoshop. If you have been following along with this series, you may have noticed the techniques are remarkably similar. All you need is some text and an image and, when you select both objects, a single click creates the mask and the image shows through the text. Being a vector application and knowing text really is nothing more than a series of vectors, it would be safe to assume there are a number of interesting things you can do with a text mask in Illustrator. In this How To I am going to show you three ways of creating Text Mask in Illustrator.
