Experience “Photoshop & You” in San Francisco

We’re “popping up” in San Francisco and taking over a space near Union Square – beginning Saturday, July 23 through Saturday, August 6. Whether you’re a Photoshop junkie that wants to “geek out” with the product team, someone who thrives on art and inspiration, or if you just happen to be passing through the neighborhood…we welcome you to immerse yourself in this visual and interactive experience.

The mission is simple – to connect with all of you and provide personalized instruction, cool installations and just plain Photoshop fun. We’ve got an awning with a sign that says “Photoshop & You” because it’s your ideas, feature requests and creations that ultimately help impact product development and…our visual world.

The Experience
Whether you choose to hang out in Russell Brown’s Extreme Imaging Lab with killer laser etching, cool t-shirt screening and large format printing, ask someone from the team your burning product questions, attend one of the many learning sessions or tag along on a weekend photowalk through the city with product managers Tom Hogarty & Bryan O’Neil Hughes – there are many opportunities for you to dive in deep and experience something new every time you visit.

We’ve come up with all kinds of ways to show Photoshop in action, like an opportunity for you to book an appointment to work with a product team expert to “fix-a-photo” you bring in or have free portrait photo taken and retouched to your liking. Certainly a great perk for those who want their images to look their very best!

We’ll also have some cool Photoshop gear for sale, as well as a special 15% discount off regularly priced Adobe software. The best part? The net proceeds from the sale of Photoshop gear will go directly to Adobe Youth Voices (AYV). AYV provides breakthrough learning experiences using video, multimedia, digital art, web, animation, and audio tools that enable youth to explore and comment on their world. A great cause the Black Eyed Peas and others have rallied around to keep creativity and expression flowing in elementary schools and high schools across the nation!

The Challenge
However, creativity isn’t just for kids. We know you all have hidden (or not so hidden) talents and we want to see them. Over 2 million Facebook fans LOVE Photoshop. But, what else comes to mind when you hear the word LOVE? Post a photo of something or someone you love to our Wall before NOON on Thursday and we’ll select fifteen photos to be showcased in our SF space this Friday! This is the first of a few challenges we’ll put out to all of you in order to help us decorate the space. Show us what you’ve got!

Stop By!
Store Location & Hours:
550 Sutter Street
San Francisco, CA
Sun–Wed:        11 a.m.–7 p.m.
Thurs–Sat:       11 a.m.–9 p.m.

Be sure to follow our Twitter channels @Photoshop, @Lightroom and @AdobeElements this week. We’ll be sharing more details about upcoming sessions, opportunities to win prizes and evening cocktail events in our outdoor garden that you won’t want to miss.

Use this space as a place to meet up with friends or stop by for a well-deserved escape from the daily grind. Tasty lunch trucks will be pulling up to our location and we’re open later on the weekends. We look forward to meeting you and capturing some good photos and stories for future blog posts.

See you soon in SF!

    Great timing – we’ll be in Union Square shooting for an epic image that will be majorly PS’d to the hilts – much like the rest of our work. We’ll have to come in and show you our stuff in person :-)

    SF is home plate for me so I was able to take advantage of several events over two weeks. Hoping Adobe will continue with this venue, it appeared to be a huge success! The “pop-up” store highlighting Photoshop and Lightroom was tremendous fun! I learned lots. Thanks to all the presenters and crew who made it all work. Thank you, Adobe!

    Any chance for another event like this in SF? You should maybe take some video next time, so adobe fans from other countries can at least see some footage.
