In so many of my classes, particularly Photoshop, Digital Photography and the Video applications, we discuss image resolution – or DPI – dots per inch (or PPI – pixels per inch). For the most part, my students seem to grasp the concepts from when I teach in (as I describe it) “Stephanese“. But here’s another discussion on the subject – this time in “CreativeBloqese“.

Check out this article from CreativeBloq.com for further clarification on the subject of pixel resolution (height/width/depth) of an image for print and for screen viewing:

For my Premiere students…

In our Advanced classes, we learn to edit a Multicamera sequence, when several cameras have been used, simultaneously.

Today, Rocketstock’s blog has a very interesting article  for an alternative use of Multicamera editing – when using a variety of clips from various shoots. I think you may find it inspiring for a new and efficient workflow. Take a look!

6 years ago, I made a video for St. Patrick’s Day on how to make Green Beer in Photoshop (I’m no brewer, but I assume that in real life, the method’s different, if you want to drink it!)

Photoshop’s changed quite a lot in 6 years, but the fundamentals remain. This lesson is as appropriate for today’s version of Photoshop as it was 6 years ago. Enjoy!

 

Learn How to Use On1 Products   December 14th, 2016

You guys have been seeing me touting On1 Photo RAW and the On1 Suite of software for some time. I promote it, because i use it, and I think it’s amazing. And, with the upcoming release of RAW, it’s going to become more amazing.

But, some people have been approaching me with questions on how to get started with the software – how to use it, and how it may apply to them. Of course, I can teach you (that is my business, you know), but they also have a terrific online community – with excellent tutorials on everything from broad to minute detail on their products, along with some other perks. It’s called On1 Plus. Here’s some of what you’ll get:

  • ON1 Photo RAW – Own it Forever
  • Technical Support
  • Personal Coaching
  • Exclusive Video Library
  • Private Online Community

Notice – the full license of PhotoRAW, PLUS all that other great value!

Check it out here – and consider a pre-order.

As almost all of my students know, I’m a bit of a type geek. So, imagine how fulfilled my inner geek feels, when I find blog post about Typefaces, Type Structure, Type families, Type anatomy, and Type Classification, the use of Type in Paragraphs, Typographic Terms like kerning and spacing, Page Layout and Type, and so much more!

Although this article is written with a focus on software development, the article is about DESIGN. Knowing what you’re using, and why. As I always say “in design, you can always break the rules, but first you have to know what the rules are!”

I seriously recommend this article to all my design students, my motion graphics students, my still image students, and anyone else who feels that Type is more than just a way to make a word show up.

I’m not usually one to suggest people learn from others, considering Adobe Training is what I do – but I firmly believe that giving students ideas for supplemental learning can always help them to practice what I teach and help to embed the information they learn in my classes.

So, I thought sharing a deal on a lifetime subscription to TrainSimple’s Adobe Training might be helpful to those who want reference information, and ways to practice what I teach. Take a look at this deal – good ONLY today!

Adobe Premiere Pro CC to include MorphCut – There’s something with the potential for greatness coming to the new Adobe Premiere Pro. In the right hands, this can be used for smoothing edits between different portions of a continuous clip, without having to cut over to a B roll, making (interviews in particular) edits cleaner and fixing a potential slew of problems.
My worry is what it’s going to do in the wrong hands. For example, the hands of politicians, news media, unscrupulous attorneys…
