Video: A killer Photoshop space odyssey

Man, after 25 years, there’s still only one Russell Brown. The Adobe creative director stole the show during last Thursday’s Photoshop 20th Anniversary celebration, cleverly combining analog & digital. Give it a minute to get rolling & you won’t be disappointed.

    Man Russel really knows how to put on a show. I loved the presentations mix of live and digital manipulation. Other presenters should take note. Entertaining and educational!

    Watching him up on stage was a riot, and made me think of the radio shows that did effects live (the pre-recorded stuff notwithstanding). All webcasts should be as entertaining :)

    Wow. The BEST presentation that I’ve ever seen. So many creative ideas at one place. Thanks for link!

    This was hilarious! Leave it to Russell Brown to have such an entertaining presentation on Photoshop’s history! Thanks for sharing!

    Please somebody explain to me the reason of such a crappy audio and embarrassing video shooting?

    I always get a kick out of Russell’s how-tos and tutorials. But, this one was sheer (creative (suite)) genius. Thanks for posting this!

    Great presentation. I enjoyed it.

    The live show was brilliant, Adobe is to be credited with standing by this certified nutburger all these years. He has brought humanity and humor to one of the world’s most influential computer programs. This is “Preston-digitation” magic at its best.

    I have discounted most of Russell’s Tutorials in the past as annoying and childlike preferring Deke to Russell any day. I do admit that this presentation was one of the coolest things I have ever witnessed and I now have Uber respect for R.B. Thank You for remembering how to have fun at work and giving us great products for the past 20 years. Congrats!

    Since Brown, for a change, kept most of his usual moronic, Kaptain Kangaroo-style way of talking out of this presentation — I was now able to greatly enjoy his first-rate ingenuity.

    Steve Jobs has made it clear he wants to kill Adobe. Why keep supporting the iPhone instead of moving to more popular platforms like Symbian?

  • Mark — 1:20 PM on February 24, 2010

    seems I’m the only one noticing the low quality of the audio/video…

  • TGS — 6:32 PM on February 24, 2010

    Symbian more popular? Laughable. What planet are you on?

    Symbian more popular? Laughable. What planet are you on?

  • Dan — 7:55 PM on February 24, 2010

    He’s on planet Earth, where Symbian still retains the market share lead:
