Well, I thought it might be nice if you got a chance to see some of the ease, power and flexibility of the program in a simple demo. Please note – this demo is based on a single image – I don’t have a camera capable of auto-bracketing (taking multiple exposures of a single shot). Here, you’ll see how we can use a preset, AND adjust that preset, and I’ve chosen a realistic look for the final image. In the future, I’ll demonstrate how we can make some more “artistically interpretive” choices, but this, I think, is a good overview.

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
Exclusive Video Library
Private Online Community
Notice – the full license of PhotoRAW, PLUS all that other great value!
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.
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…

Jeff Witchel, an Adobe Certified Instructor for Adobe Illustrator and a frequent contributor to Layers Magazine(which many of you know is one of my favorite resources), has created a video tutorial for the addition of Gradients to type, WHILE keeping the type editable. This is one of those un-obvious Illustrator controls (uses one of my favorite tools – the Appearance Panel) that will help a bunch of you!
The hosting company who hosts all my websites (www.inmotionhosting.com) has posted a wonderful set of HTML 5 Cheatsheets! There’s one for Tags, One for Event Handler Attributes, and one for Browser Support.
Okay – so many of you who have taken my design classes have seen me “pick on” the Helvetica font. As you know, although I consider it a classic, beautiful, clean and highly versatile, I have some issues with it’s built-in kerning at large sizes, so I usually use it for my kerning lessons.
So, today, Graphics.com posted a Facebook link to a great page with 40 great logos designed using Helvetica. Now, I don’t personally agree that all of these do, in fact, use Helvetica (eg: Nestlé, even if it started as Helvetica, didn’t remain Helvetica, IMO), but if you check these out, you’ll gain some great inspiration as to the effects of tracking and kerning, color, use of space, and all things typography and design.
