Illustrator tutorial, Lightroom 2.0 beta and MLB strikes out
Just a quick entry here this morning to start you off on your creative day (you have your Starbucks or favorite cofee in hand don’t you?)
Lightroom 2.0 beta is up on Adobe Labs. If you’re a photographer, then you’ll want to check out what the latest is from the Photoshop Lightroom team. If you’ve never heard of Lightroom, two things: Where have you been? and… Lightroom is "Photoshop for Photographers" and an awesome program whatever your skill level in Photoshop may be. Give it a test drive.
Also, check out this nifty and quick little tutorial on creating clean silouettes from photos inside of Illustrator with Live Trace. It comes to you from Layers Magazine and will take you only a few minutes to digest. You can get it here
And, as a baseball fan, I can’t resist posting an article here from Macworld which gives talks about MLB’s new MLB.tv service based on Microsoft’s Silverlight technology. As an avid fan of baseball, I look at the MLB.tv service every year because I travel a lot and want to catch the games if I can. However, based on this, I think I’ll either wait or pick up a Slingbox when I have a few extra $$. It’s interesting to note that MLB’s Gameday and many other surrounding services and features are all based on Flash.
