happy holloween

Not an advanced holloween party this, but mid-way through an InDesign tip during the Adobe INDESIGN WORLD 2006 Roadshow, one of the best seminars I’ve attended this year.

Tim Cole, Senior InDesign Evangelist, Adobe Systems, Inc. and Marianne Young, Solutions Engineer, Adobe Systems, South East Asia, were the Mission Mentors. I bet those who attended were every bit as wowed as I was, and will in the next 24-48 hours probably head off to the nearest pirata tiangge for bootlegs, except a kid from the UP college of IT who won a boxed InDesign software package (inggit kaming lahat!), and the Adobe group gave away shirts and idea notebooks (I got one of those).

One of the new things I learned is about Adobe Bridge … something that if I had known how to use would have eliminated the need for Picasa or Aseedcsee or whatever software that was. Fire up your Adobe Bridge (if you’ve never done so before) and you’ll see what a powerful image manager it is.

One thought on “so that’s what the bridge is for

  1. I attended last year’s roadshow but I missed this one. And I’m still gonna miss the Usability seminars (Nov. 14) & the Graphika Manila event (Dec. 2).

    Leaving Manila at this time is such… aaarggh!

    But you should go. Say, best of 3 before the year ends? 😉
