Inside perspective on how PS CS6 came to be
- Photoshop PM Bryan O’Neil Hughes has written the cover story for this month’s Photoshop User magazine. In it he & many other members of the Photoshop team share their perspective on what went into this release (especially after having cleared the hurdles of 64-bit and Cocoa conversion), who exactly builds the app (engineering, QE, localization, user research, etc.), what the heck we PM-types actually do, and more. The issue isn’t available in HTML form, but you can grab a free copy here and read it through your browser.
- Photoshop QE manager Jackie Lincoln-Owyang shares some Reflections on the Photoshop CS6 Beta, sharing some interesting stats (312 cases of beer, 9 babies, 2 calls to the SF fire department—all independent, we’re told) and more.
Reflection app brings iPad mirroring to Windows
Reflection has been a godsend to those of us who demo iPad apps (no more lugging around an overhead cam!), and now it’s available on Windows as well as Mac:
With Reflection, we’ve been able to bring over all the features of the Mac version to Windows, including recording, full audio streaming, support for multiple devices, and full screen display.
[Remember that if you're demoing Photoshop Touch, you can go into preferences & invoke the "presentation mode" that displays red circles whenever you touch your fingers down. --J.]
