After 26 years, I will be retiring from a high school Graphic Arts teaching position at the end of the current school year. I would like to continue to offer my expertise to teachers creating materials for classroom use. Currently, my school district provides me with access to the Adobe Creative Suite. However, when I retire, I must personally pay for a subscription. Since my plan is to provide free services to teachers, how can I afford to personally subscribe to Adobe Creative Suite if I might only us... Read More

I teach three sections of an introductory class (two brick-and-mortar, one online) dealing with communication using graphics. I've had a bit of training on how to help students learn, develop, and practice skills that are most sought by employers: Soft Skills or aka Employability or Life Skills. I do this with a team project or two all sections, but the online class is difficult to do as many of the students seemed disconnected. My job is to connect them with discussion forums, group emails, online webinar... Read More

I have students in my ICT classes that would like to talk with other high schoolers around the world. I am wondering if there are other teachers who might have classes interested in having a virtual pen pal. The students can connect via Google hangouts. We all need to follow safe protocols, ie, permissions from administration and parents, but I know it can be done. Please connect with me if you are interested. Reaching out via Adobe Education Exchange seemed like a great place to start this venture beca... Read More

Greetings,  A few weeks back I decided to create a tool for creative professionals and learners alike, and in doing so, I came up with the term/hashtag #howdoyoucreate?  I think this is an interesting subject and question because I think that it is important for an individual to define their creative process. We as creatives can be all over the place, and having a defined process could mean an improved workflow, a path to development, and a renewed way to approach your projects.  So... Read More

Hello, I purchased and have been using Photoshop Elements 11 in for Mac in 2013 and have been using it ever since. The app is missing from my computer and I was trying to download it. But each time I try to download PSE 11, I get PSE 14, which obviously doesn't recognize Serial Number. Could anyone help me download PSE 11? I'd much appreciate it. Mustafa

If you are planning to install a free trial of any of the adobe tools be aware that it can disrupt any functional adobe software on your computer. I tried it once on a Windows machine. I currently have the Adobe Master suit Css5. The new software installation can change your license and computer registry. You will find yourself re-installing the software that you currently have.Does anybody knows if its possible to upgrade to the latest version using the same license?

Not sure what I am missing. I imported my fuse character into Unity, I positioned it over the character I had in there, I changed the setting of the sprite, but when I play the scene it just has the original Unity character running around?

I thought I would start a discussion and see if there are any other teachers/lecturers out there who would be interested in collaborating together to create some resources for a upper high school Design class using mainly Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Would be handy to make connections with others all around, and very interested to see what others have been up to!  Keen as!
