Below this entry is the link to access the PDF from Clark Omholt's presentation on color management. I'd like to thank everyone who attended our November meeting, and special thanks go to Clark Omholt from Spectraflow and Jay Daniel from Black Cat Studio for giving us a clear and understandable view of managing color in Adobe software.
Jay's presentation is recorded on our Adobe Connect account and can be viewed at:
Just got this info from Adobe yesterday. Although we are still anticipating the announcement of CS6 the first half of 2012, it's good to know that there will be upgrade paths for CS5 users and also users of older versions of CS3 and CS4.
The release date is NOT announced yet, and the North Bay Adobe User Group will do its best to keep you informed and to have a special meeting sharing all of the new changes to CS6 when the time comes.
Cheers, Cyndi Reese
User Group Manager
CS6 Upgrade Path for CS3/CS4 Users:
We’re very excited about the upcoming launch of Adobe’s Creative Suite 6 and Adobe Creative Cloud. CS6 will be a major new release of our creative desktop tools, with huge improvements for every type of creative pro. Adobe Creative Cloud will be our most comprehensive creative solution ever, giving members access to the all CS6 desktop software, plus additional services, new tools, Adobe Touch Apps and rich community features. In addition, Creative Cloud members will receive continuous upgrades and updates to all products and services as part of their membership.
With these great new releases coming in the first half of 2012, we want to make sure our customers have plenty of time to discover which offering is best for them. Therefore, we’re pleased to announce that we will offer special introductory upgrade pricing on Creative Suite 6 to our customers who own CS3 or CS4. This offer will be available from the time CS6 is released until December 31, 2012. More details on this offer, as well as any introductory offers for existing customers to move to Creative Cloud membership, will be announced when CS6 and Creative Cloud are released later this year.
This is an OFFER -- NOT a promotion.
The "Introductory upgrade offer" will be available to shrink wrap boxed software, and licensing. The offer will be applicable to all Routes to Market, regardless of IF Creative Cloud is offered. This is specifically for CS6 perpetual upgrades.
CS6 Release date:
We anticipate questions around CS6 release date. We are not giving a date at this time.
The folks at the Creative Suite have put together a very simple survey (I've checked it out). If you take the survey, you could win some passes to lynda.com.
The Adobe Connect webcast of the November 29th meeting of NBAUG is now posted. The two presentations were on Illustrator CS5 perspective by Carolyn Massell and then a joint presentation on Acrobat X by Carolyn and Cyndi Reese. Visit http://experts.adobeconnect.com/p75768280/ to watch the webcast if you missed it.
Take a look at the Adobe website. CS 5.5 has been announced, a hefty upgrade which allows CS software to take advantage of digital publishing to different devices. This is not a free upgrade, but there are different options for acquiring CS5.5. This intermediate upgrade allows Adobe to boost the features of certain programs within the Suite w/o having to roll out a complete new major version of the software. Yes, Adobe has listened and will have a longer period of time in between releases!
If you want to take a look at what's under the hood, come to the Thursday April 28th meeting of the North Bay Adobe User Group at 7pm in Newman Auditorium. We have an incredible evening planned, as Adobe Solutions Consultant Patti Sokol will introduce the world of digital publishing using InDesign CS5.5!
The webcast is available for our February meeting with presenter Carmen Sheldon on Handmade Design for the Digital Designer.
Note: this event is full and RSVPs are no longer accepted
I just received this email from Rachel Luxemburg at Adobe Systems about a special 20th anniversary party for Photoshop in San Francisco. If you decide to RSVP, you must make sure that you attend -- no shows are not OK as this is an important event and there is a lot of interest.
It sounds awfully fun. I hope someone comes back with a poster for me... Cyndi
