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.

Well…it was worth an ask. :) Firgured you guys were swamped, and can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next week.

Hey Dennis, actually starting my day below the towers of Adobe in San Jose, sipping some Peets on Santa Clara. I’m in town on business but have the afternoon free and would love to get a tour, if you happen to know any one on the AE team there. :) Anyway thanks for the Illustrator tip. Looking forward to trying to meet you next week @ NAB. Also, I’m looking at starting my own AE User group in the Dayton/Cincinnati area and was wondering if you have a good place for me to start. You can e-mail me if you would like. All the best, adn thanks again!

[DR – Peets is the best. Can’t get you any tour as we’re all getting ready for NAB next week (end of this week actually). I’ll be bopping around between the Adobe, Panasonic and Canon booths, but I hope you’ll stop by and introduce yourself.

See you soon – DR]

I heard that Lightroom 2.0 beta is work on mac fast than windows I plane to use it on my mac after I install it
nut i wait until they realase the offical version i think as i remember it will be on 30 day

[DR – I’m guessing you’re trying to say that you heard that the Lightroom 2 beta is faster on the Mac than PC. Honestly, I don’t know and though I dearly love Lightroom, I haven’t taken a look at 2.0 quite yet. To use, you need a 1.0 copy and than it will time out sometime in August. If you don’t have Lightroom 1.0 installed, it will time out after 30 days. Check out John Nack’s thread on Lightroom and 64bit computing here:
