  • Secret’ App: Rocketing to Essential Status?
    “It is still the very ear­ly days for Secret. But so few ser­vices reach this base lev­el of impor­tance to peo­ple, even at rel­a­tive­ly small num­bers, that the com­pa­ny seems to have a real oppor­tu­ni­ty to evolve into some­thing tru­ly great and mean­ing…

  • Interview with Bert Monroy – Photoshop Guru

    Whether you are tak­ing a pic­ture or cre­at­ing one from scratch, do it because you love what you are doing. Do it because the cre­ativ­i­ty in you needs to be sat­is­fied. Do it because it puts a smile on your face and a warmth in your soul.

  • U.S. to Relinquish Remaining Control Over the Internet
    “The change would end the long-running con­tract between the Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based non­prof­it group. That con­tract is set to expire next year but could be exten…
  • Spring Training: Learn New Design Skills Free Online

    ” On the plane home I was struck by the cor­re­la­tion between the two types of spring train­ing. I invite you to fol­low my lead and renew your ener­gy and pas­sion for your cre­ative pro­fes­sion. Nurture new skills to flower options in new fields. Update and rein­force your exist­ing knowl­edge or dive into some­thing com­plete­ly new, online (and most­ly for free) with the fol­low­ing resources.”

  • Adobe Clarifies Changes to Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, Pro Edition Publishing and Licensing

    I have some updates that I hope address con­cerns raised about the change to the Professional Edition pol­i­cy, and it’s good news. Professional Edition cus­tomers (month­ly and annu­al) who have mul­ti­ple apps in mar­ket are still able to pub­lish into those exist­ing apps per the pre­vi­ous terms of use. Customers will not have to remove their exist­ing Pro Edition apps from the mar­ket or move them to indi­vid­ual Pro Edition licens­es. The bot­tom line is that exist­ing Pro Edition apps are not affect­ed by the new pol­i­cy. You can con­tin­ue to pub­lish into exist­ing apps even after you choose to renew your Pro Edition license.
     
    The new pol­i­cy of one app per license applies only when a cus­tomer renews their Professional Edition month­ly or annu­al sub­scrip­tion or to net new Pro Edition agree­ments. If upon renew­al of your Pro Edition license (month­ly or annu­al) you decide you would like to pub­lish three new apps (as an exam­ple), under the new pol­i­cy you must pur­chase three indi­vid­ual Pro Edition license or upgrade to Enterprise Edition. To address con­cerns more direct­ly and dis­cuss pric­ing options, Adobe is encour­ag­ing cus­tomers to con­tact us at DPSPRO@​adobe.​com. We will respond with­in 24 hours. I high­ly encour­age cus­tomers with pric­ing or any oth­er con­cerns to con­tact Adobe or send an email to the alias. Without going into detail, it is impor­tant to have a direct con­ver­sa­tion with Adobe in order to get accu­rate infor­ma­tion on pric­ing options.”

  • Awesome Illustrator CC To Edge Reflow Workflow Tidbit [Video]
    “The tra­di­tion­al way of get­ting Illustrator objects into Reflow was to con­vert them, in Illustrator, to the svg for­mat and place them in the Reflow doc­u­ment. No longer. This whole process has been reduced to a sim­ple Copy/Paste work­flow. Of cou…
