Workflow with Adobe Ideas and Adobe Illustrator

The aim of this session is to show the interoperability of tablet devices with Adobe’s Creative Cloud service and Creative Suite 6 software on a laptop. In this session, Adobe Community Professional Chana Messer will create a design on a tablet using Adobe Ideas (an AdobeTouch app), then upload the design via the Adobe Cloud service; pull the image down to her laptop to manipulate it with Adobe Illustrator. She will then continue the workflow process by going back to the tablet device to create a composite image for a movie poster using Adobe PhotoshopTouch (another app on her tablet); upload the image to the creative cloud; and then, finally put the finishing touches using Adobe Photoshop using various layers and effects. By attending this session, the attendee may realize the power of the collaborative services and software available to them via Adobe’s Creative Cloud service.

John Watts will demonstrate why you should be shooting RAW for your important work.
