Adobe HTML5 progress update

To enable lighter, more scalable, more beautiful digital publications, HTML needs to improve to handle richer text layouts. I’m delighted to see that Adobe’s CSS Regions contributions have reached the WebKit mainline & Chromium releases, and that the IE10 preview also supports the standard. Here’s a 2-minute demo (cued up to the relevant part):

So far so good; but what else? Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch hints that we’ll learn more about Adobe HTML tools & strategies next week. Stay tuned.

Video: Using tool presets in Photoshop CS5

Julieanne Kost shows off one of the most perennially underused capabilities in Photoshop–namely, the ability to create & use presets that store settings for tools (e.g. common crop dimensions, type styles*, brushes with colors, etc.).

* It’s true, tool presets aren’t as powerful as live type styles (ones where changing the style changes layers to which it’s been applied), but they’re still handy.
