CC 2014: What's New and Exciting for PS, ID, and AI
General Meeting/Creative Cloud User Group - Tuesday, August 19
At our next Creative Cloud/General Meeting, Cynthia Gordon and Virginia Houts will be discussing some of their favorite new features in the recently released Creative Cloud 2014. Using online videos and live demos, they will focus on a few new things in Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. There’s too much to cover in just one meeting, so they picked their favorites!
And if you aren’t yet familiar with Adobe’s new “splash” pages for tutorial resources on Adobe.com, prepare to be “wow’d”.
Part 1: Photoshop
For Photoshop CC 2014, you’ll see a brief introduction to each of these new features:
-Scalable Color Panel
-Path and Spin Blur filters
-Color Adaptation settings for Content Aware patches
-Focus mask for selections in photographs
-How to create custom Color Lookup Tables, or Luts (which can be used in AE or any other video editing program, in addition to PS)
Next, Cynthia will do a couple of quick demos showcasing:
-How to align and space objects as you draw
-How to create and generate web graphics with Adobe Generator
Part 2: InDesign and Illustrator
For InDesign, Virginia will guide us in a look at:
-New Fixed-Layout EPUB
-How to work with color groups
Finally, Virginia will demo how to use Live Rectangles and Live Shapes with Live Corners in Illustrator. That’s a lot of living, right there!
We’ll also spend some time discussing future meeting topics, with a focus on what types of presentations will be most useful to our members’ projects and workflows.

The Connect Room will be open at 6 P.M.
