Create your own Adobe tutorial


Many people who use Adobe’s products have a huge amount of experience and expertise to share. What’s really inspiring to me is to see a very cool image that someone created and then have them walk me through how they did a particular technique. Are you one of those people? If so, you might be interested in creating a tutorial using Adobe’s new Community Publishing System. Your tip or tutorial will end up on Adobe.com. Here’s what you do:

  1. Download the Community Publishing AIR app.
  2. Use one of the prebuilt templates or upload your content in any form you wish.
  3. Your content will show up in content searches when people are looking for help for Adobe products. It might even be linked to from the product Help and Support pages.

Digital imaging key concepts and terms


Are you just starting out with digital imaging? If you’re a beginner with digital photo-editing, you’ll need to understand some basic concepts. This isn’t always as easy as it should be. What if the beginner tutorial contains words or ideas that you haven’t learned yet? Are you wondering things like:

  • What is a “color cast”?
  • What’s the difference between “resize” and “resample”?
  • What does “sepia tone” mean?

If you want to learn about some of these basic ideas, Adobe is testing a new idea: Illustrated Key Concepts. Each page contains a definition of the basic concept, an illustration of the concept, related terms, and a list of related tools in Photoshop Elements. Once you’ve learned what a sepia tone image is, you can click on the tool name and learn how to create a sepia tone image using Photoshop Elements.

The pages also contain lots of other “related terms” to help people find the right page. Sometimes you may not know the correct term for something. These related terms are meant to help searchers get close. So, for example, if you wanted to find info on creating sepia toned images but you searched for “antique” photos, you could land on Sepia Tone page anyway.

Check out the Key Concepts Index page to see the full list with links and comments. If you find this helpful or have suggestions, leave us a comment. Here are the Key Concepts:

      Very cool pinhole cameras

      Apparently I missed celebrating World Pinhole Camera Day. But, never fear! I can still celebrate with a custom made pinhole camera. What you do is to download a pdf file, do a little cutting and pasting and, voila! A beautiful pinhole camera ready to use. If you want to try this, simply download one of the pdf files that Corbis has on their very cool pinhole camera site. Go ahead, do something tactile and non-digital for a change! Enjoy!
