25 years and it feels like it’s just beginning

Just came back from a wonderful christmas break and wanted to let you all know that I’ve moved to a new role in Adobe.

My new role is called Technical Account Manager and I will now be taking care of customers on a name list. This will allow me to be much closer to the customer and be able to help in more ways specific to each of my customers’ needs. I am looking forward to getting deeply involved in my new responsibilities, but that is not to say I will not miss my hay day as a Solutions Engineer.

It was such a great experience to be able to talk about Adobe in crowds that go beyond a thousand. When you hear people applaud because of all the cool things we can share… that feeling is unbeatable.

Last December, The Sales and marketing organization got together for the Annual Conference and it was also Adobe’s 25th year anniversary. Am I such a fan… and what an honor to be able to take some fan photos! Here are some!

And I don’t have to tell you who this is! Noha Edell and myself get to rub elbows with THE man!

Ta-tah!

Are you Photobucket-ing?

Today, I was pleasantly surprise to read a press release that Adobe has partnered with Photobucket to deliver a new lightweight remix and video editing tools right into Photobucket’s site.  The same useability concepts taken from Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements are applied, and I am so excited to try it out myself. Premiere Elements is so much fun, easy to use and very intuitive, I sometimes even forget the complexities of the science behind video editing.  If you’re only starting out, the idea gallery is a good place to start.

For the slightly more serious stuff, there’s Production Studio of course (and yes, we are back on the Mac… i’ve posted it before, but i can’t help myself!) and here’s some fun fun fun tutorials on all the things you can do with the suite of video products Adobe has.

But as my guru will tell me, if your an After Effects addict, you shouldn’t be missing Creative Cow’s Tutorial Pages either…

And even if this entry is all about video, if you’re a fan of any of the Adobe Products, especially the Creative Suite (what else is there after that?) you’ll be missing a lot without Terry.  Better subscribe before you miss any of the editions!

Lots of things to share, but we’ll keep some for next week.
