No matter whether you’re rocking a professional-grade DSLR or you shoot your snaps with an iPhone, having a capable method of organizing your collection and editing your photos is essential. iPhoto comes with every new Mac and it does a lot, but it isn’t the be-all-end-all for every user. So we looked at five other applications that can help you corral and edit your photos; then we collected 10 solid tips for making those photos look their best, no matter which app you’re using. You’ll never regret filling up a memory card again.
A few weeks ago, Adobe Labs announced Project ROME--an experimental desktop and internet publishing solution aimed at bringing an affordable software-as-a-service tool set to the education market in a easy to install package built on the backbone of Adobe Air. Unfortunately, after a short testing cycle, the powers that be at Adobe have opted to put the kibosh on future development of the application.
We all know about the ongoing scuffaw between Apple and Adobe in regard to the effects of Flash Player in web browsing. But today, Adobe's CEO interestingly revealed that Adobe has a version of Flash Player in the works that's actually being geared for the new MacBook Air.
Mac users were treated to a final release of Mac OS X 10.6.5 this week, which addressed a number of issues including the squashing of more than 130 bugs. But did you realize that almost half of those bugs were caused by Adobe Flash?
You knew that the peace couldn't last forever. When word hit the street last week that installing Adobe's Flash software on the latest iteration of the MacBook Air could shave off upwards of two hours of battery life, Apple unwittingly awoke Adobe's sleeping dogs of war... or at the very least restarted the Flash-or-no-Flash slap-fight anew.
Is it possible that Apple knew what it was doing when it excluded Adobe Flash from being preinstalled in the latest MacBook Air models? A new report claims that the controversial Flash technology can kill battery life on the slim new laptops by as much as two hours.
Project Rome: there's no reason a piece of software can't make you say prego! Especially if it's an all-in-one desktop publishing tool that makes it easy for even the novice computer user to make and publish webpages, photo albums, flyers and anything else an expert might use Adobe Illustrator or InDesign for, but without having to pay loads of cash just to do so. Currently, the project is in beta and available to whomever might want to try it. To get a feel for it, we played with the software ourselves and wrote up a few tips and tricks and point out some choice features from the web application.
With traditional print publishing suffering the slings and arrows of internet-aided content delivery these past few years, magazine, book and newspaper publishers have been struggling to find an efficient, cost-effective method to transfer their wares into the digital realm. In answer to the publishing industry's frantic calls for help, Adobe has announced their latest offering: The Adobe Digital Publishing Solution.
It's Monday--the Monday after a week upon which an Apple Event fell. As much as we'd like to wow you with word of something awesome dropping, unfortunately, well... It's Monday. Instead, may we tempt you with the news that Adobe has updated their flexible Adobe Air cross-platform runtime to version 2.5?
Wait! Where are you going? Seriously, this is kind of cool!
For everyone out there who wishes for a single freakin' app to take care of biz, Adobe's answer is Project Rome. This beta cloud-based service launches today, providing an all-in-one content creation and publishing platform that runs from any browser or as an Adobe Air application for Mac and Windows (this version can be used offline). Impressively, it's free to U.S.-based users while it's in beta, an offer that Adobe's making because they're still taking feature requests and want to tune the service based on the feedback they get.
