Photoshop Companion Apps First Look

with Deke McClelland

Video: Welcome

Hey gang, this is Deke McClelland. Here is the idea, as you may know Adobe has revved the Creative Suite to CS5.5 but not all the applications are included, for example, Adobe Illustrator will remain CS5. Photoshop's kind of in the middle, there is a Photoshop CS5.1 that's available as a free download, also known as Version 12.1, just so as you know and it includes the ability to communicate with iPad apps and potentially in the future, apps running on the other tablet platforms entirely wirelessly which is an awesome thing and they're also, including in SDK, a software developer kit so that third-party vendors can get into the action with their own apps, so it should be very exciting.

The new Photoshop Touch SDK allows for the creation of mobile applications that interact directly with Photoshop CS5. In this course, author Deke McClelland previews Adobe's initial offerings for the iPad—Color Lava, Eazel, and Adobe Nav—and explains how to sync these applications with Photoshop. Using finger swipes, pinches, and other gestures, Color Lava and Eazel users can create unique colors swatches and artwork that can be transferred back to Photoshop. The course also explains how to use Adobe Nav to customize the toolbar and browse up to 200 open Photoshop documents.

Hey gang, this is Deke McClelland. Here is the idea, as you may know Adobe has revved the Creative Suite to CS5.5 but not all the applications are included, for example, Adobe Illustrator will remain CS5. Photoshop's kind of in the middle, there is a Photoshop CS5.1 that's available as a free download, also known as Version 12.1, just so as you know and it includes the ability to communicate with iPad apps and potentially in the future, apps running on the other tablet platforms entirely wirelessly which is an awesome thing and they're also, including in SDK, a software developer kit so that third-party vendors can get into the action with their own apps, so it should be very exciting.

In the meantime Adobe has created three apps as a proof of concept. Here's what you have to choose from. You've got Color Lava which is this program that allows you to smear colors together. Once you get that perfect color that you're looking for you tap it and it becomes a foreground color inside of Photoshop. There is also Eazel and it's a painting program. So you paint away, and then you go ahead and send the image off to Photoshop for further editing and it takes full advantage of multi-touch technology.

You in fact have to use all five of the digits on your hands in order to get the darn thing to work and then there's my favorite which it is Adobe Nav. Open a bunch of images inside a Photoshop and they automatically transfer over to Adobe Nav. So you don't have to tediously copy images to the iPad gallery for example, they just come over automatically, you can zoom in on them in lustrous detail, very exciting stuff stay tuned.
