eLearning Suite & Photoshop CS5 – Getting super clean edges on alpha objects

People often ask me how I got such a clean cutout of an image in Adobe Captivate 5. The answer is that it’s pretty easy with eLearning Suite 2, because Photoshop CS5 and Adobe Captivate 5 work together to make for a simple solution to complex problems like that one. Sure, it’s easy to get a clean selection when all the background pixels are the same color, but what do you do when you need to clip a foreground object or figure and the subject and the background are far more complex?

Before I tell you what’s new…

I enjoy a rare and amazing view of the entire process of creating great software at Adobe. My position lets me advocate (often vociferously) for the needs of users, and to collaborate with brilliant software engineers, managers and marketing specialists at Adobe to help bring forth software that meets very real needs for eLearning professionals, academics and training solutions providers.

From that perspective I get to see an enormous amount. I have been consistently wowwed by the incredible dedication — not just to producing great software, but also — to the needs of end users that i’ve witnessed among the product managers and engineers on the eLearning Suite and Captivate teams. I see it paying off incredibly in these new releases, and I’m confident that everyone will share my enthusiasm – This is an amazing leap forward not just for Captivate & the eLearning Suite, but for the entire field of eLearning authoring.

One of the most impressive things I witnessed is the manner in which Captivate 5 was rebuilt, both to accomodate the release on Mac OS, and to maximize user productivity. The changes are clear – but what might not be immediately apparent is the similarity, consistency, and allegience to the roots of Captivate that permeate the newest version. In other words, even if you’ve used Captivate in previous versions – even dating back a long long way, you’ll know immediately where you are and what you are doing. The fundamentals are unchanged – and where there are changes, the time I’ve been able to save in authoring is astonishing.

… mind the break and ‘read on’.
