Adobe has updated the Adobe Exchange panel for CS6. Use the Panel to discover and install new plug-ins, extensions, and other content for Photoshop and other Creative Suite Products.
Click here for an overview of the Exchange Panel.
Adobe has released 2 pre-production plug-ins that extend existing functionality inside the Develop Module in Lightroom: Adobe DNG Flat Field and Adobe DNG Recover Edge. These plug-ins are provided free of charge, but without an official support program.
• Adobe DNG Flat Field plug-in in a tool used to correct an optical phenomenon called shading, also known as “lens cast”.
• Adobe DNG Recover Edge plug-in is a tool used to recover image data typically lost when using the in-camera crop mode.
Like other technologies on Adobe Labs, these tools are not finished products, but rather beta or prototype utilities that may work in your particular environment. To download the plug-ins and for more information, please visit Adobe Labs.
There are two new filters for Photoshop CS6 (currently for Mac only) that have been posted to Adobe Labs – Interpolate and Match Edge. The Interpolate filter fills the transparent areas of the current layer with a smooth mix of the colors in the opaque areas while the Match Edges filter changes the colors at the edges of the targeted layer to match those of the layer below it, and smoothly distributes this change through the layer. Like other technologies on Adobe Labs, these tools are not finished products, but rather beta or prototype utilities that may work in your particular environment. To download the plug-ins and for more information, please visit Adobe Labs.
Adobe is looking to talk to teachers, professors and instructors to gain a better understanding about student assignments, software and technology use. This unique and fun opportunity will allow educators to work with Adobe and share how technology is being incorporated in the way students complete assignments in their classrooms. There will be several PAID research opportunities. If you’re interested in these opportunities, please fill out a preliminary screener. You’ll be contacted if you are eligible to participate!
Now that Single Edition is included as part of an Adobe Creative Cloud membership, and Creative Cloud members can submit an unlimited number of iPad apps to the Apple App Store, I thought I would link to a few resources for additional information:
· Step-by-Step Guide for Creative Cloud members to Publishing iPad Apps with DPS, Single Edition
· Series of Adobe TV videos featuring Digital Publishing Suite Evangelist Colin Fleming
· More information is available on the Digital Publishing Suite page
· For further information on Creative Cloud, check the FAQ page on adobe.com
Note: Creative Cloud membership does not include the annual fee for the Apple Developer Program. Mac OS is required to use DPS App Builder.

If you’re in the Bay Area then don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn all about Book Creation in Lightorom 4.1 at the San Francisco Bay Area Lightroom User Group.
This month’s meetup will be in San Francisco, and we’ll discuss the new Book module in Lightroom 4. We’ll go through the complete process of making a book in Lightroom, from start to finish. The presentation will include a description of how to use Auto Layout Presets, which are a powerful tool for quickly and easily making the book you want in as few clicks as possible.
I looked at the total number of posts on my blog this morning and can’t believe that I reached 1,000! I know how much time each post takes me to create (and the teamwork involved in the creation of the videos!), and I really appreciate that Adobe encourages me to commit a portion of my time and resources to distribute quality content to our customers. I hope you have found (and will continue to find) the content here useful as you work with our products.
