The Adobe Output Module returns, now in Bridge CC
When Bridge CC shipped, it shipped without the Adobe Output Module, which allowed you to create PDF Presentations and Web Galleries. Adobe Output Module is now available for Bridge CC. Use the instructions below to install it.
Make sure you have the most recent version of Bridge CC installed. To check for updates, in Bridge, choose Help > Updates. Follow the instructions to install any updates.
Check out the page for download links & installation instructions.
Update: Sorry, a database problem is presently causing trouble with the download links. If they’re not working for you, please try again in a bit.
Stay frosty, Star Wars
- Vesa Lehtimäki makes terrific images of Legos on Hoth. On Flickr he shares some of his techniques (e.g. creating snow by using ground plaster of Paris flakes underwater).
- Adobe’s own Christian Cantrell makes tons of fun Lego Star Wars portraits (e.g. the pet AT-AT below).
- Elsewhere on Wired Spencer Ackerman breaks down what Kottke calls “The hubris and folly of Darth Vader at Hoth.” (Pro tip: “Don’t place unaccountable religious fanatics in wartime command, and never underestimate a hegemonic power’s ability to miscalculate against an insurgency.”)
- On Quora someone dares to ask, “Did the Rebel Alliance really blow up the Death Star, or was it all planned by Vader and the Emperor to drum up support for their war against the terrorists?”
- And this… I don’t even know what to say about this. But I want to drive it, immediately.
PixelDropr facilitates object reuse in Photoshop
The PixelDropr extension panel for Photoshop (CS5 & above) looks interesting:
Whether it’s icons, buttons, ui kits or photos, Pixel Dropr lets you create your own 30 piece collections of the pixels you need and allows you to instantly drop them into any PS document while you work.
