Software is the big news these days. Whether it's Apple's long-awaited incredibly popular Mountain Lion or it's apps that work with it or fixes for it. Whatever the case, we love ourselves some software, but there were other stories of interest this week, just take a look and see.
The debut of a new font may not seem like much cause for celebration these days, but when the company is Adobe and the font in question marks the first time they've released an open source type family, we're inclined to pay attention.
Microsoft took the wraps off its upcoming Office 365 products at an event earlier today, but there's plenty of other tech news keeping us busy here today as well. Steve Jobs pleading with Yelp not to sell to Google? Check. iOS 6 Beta 3 now available? Check. OS X Mountain Lion released to the public? Sorry, not yet. Just wanted to make sure you were still paying attention on this manic Monday, July 16, 2012.
Although we haven't noticed this problem on our own MacBook Pro with Retina Display, InDesign users have been filling up Adobe's online forum with crashing problems since the Ivy Bridge-era notebooks were released in mid-June.
The term “desktop publishing” no longer holds quite the same allure it did when PageMaker started a revolution on the Macintosh. More than 25 years later, print media is at a crossroads, with readers turning to tablets for consuming content once strictly confined to paper. With InDesign CS6, Adobe has finally hit its stride after years of trying to shoehorn digital media features into traditional print software, often with awkward results.
Adobe Illustrator has long been the choice for illustration professionals, designers, and anyone who wants to work with infinitely scalable vector graphics. Over the years it’s gained some highly impressive features, such as mesh tools for drawing photorealistic objects, perspective tools for taking the pain out of vanishing points, and much, much more. So, what can CS6 bring? Oh, just plenty of new features and an all-new interface.
When the name of your software is already synonymous with image editing, can there be anything left to add or improve upon after 13 versions? Although it wasn’t altered for last year’s Creative Suite 5.5 (aside from adding support for subscription pricing), Adobe Photoshop is the main attraction in Creative Suite 6, loaded with time-saving features that make it a joy to use.
When Apple released Final Cut Pro X last year, many veterans were up in arms. FCPX wasn’t just an update to the program they’d come to rely on--it was a complete departure from what they were used to. You either loved it or hated it, and Adobe was only too pleased to welcome new clients to its platform. With Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe is working very hard to make sure its clientele stays put.
It's hard to believe it's only been two years and two months since Steve Jobs penned his "Thoughts on Flash" missive on the Apple website -- and now, Adobe is throwing in the towel on Android support effective August 15th.
Initially promised as part of Adobe's $49.99 per month Creative Cloud subscription service, Lightroom 4 was MIA when the service launched in May -- an injustice that the company has rectified this week.
