This is the first post of a new series of profiles of Prolific Powerhouse People who use Adobe tools and technologies in a creative way. Feel free to inform me if you know of someone who is doing amazing things with Adobe technologies within HiEd or K12 education or beyond.

If you’re like me trying to stay on top of all the amazing Adobe tools and technologies can be frankly a daunting task! Case in point Adobe just announced our CS5 suite of tools that will be available soon.

Thank goodness for Terry White!

An Evening with Terry White

First off, if you haven’t read Terry White’s technology blog, you should surf on over and have a look (link to Terry’s blog).

Terry has been covering technology for a long time, and has some interesting perspectives on its use. He will often tell you that he doesn’t just work here at Adobe (he is a Director in the Systems Engineering group, helping us to better connect our workflow to your issues), but he is a true fan of the software we all promote under his guidance.

During this week’s blog, I want to highlight his evening-with. Tomorrw night (April 28th), Terry will offer an open web session to cover his Lightroom workflow, and if you are looking for a real world example of a digital photography workflow, check this session out. Read on for the details:

Greetings all,
While we have a Lightroom 2 User Guide PDF that includes detailed information about Lightroom (including all of the shortcuts), I’ve recently had requests from users who would like a PDF reference guide that covers just the shortcuts in Lightroom 2. So I’ve created one…enjoy!
