When we rolled out the new Photoshop.com one year ago today, we promised to provide cool creative content and useful resources that would encourage and energize you to be as creative as possible with your images. Showcasing outstanding images and unique stories in our Spotlights section was one way we hoped to inspire you. It also gave our team a deeper feeling for the countless ways the Photoshop family of products impacts work and play.
We got to see how Jennifer Wilkoski Glass used Lightroom to instantly turn old buildings into art. Linda Saatgast showed us how to transform a hobby into a career using Photoshop Elements. Carl Warner composited food into amazing, scenic creations while Tim Flach’s carefully composed pictures of animals gave us new perspective on our own human nature. We also showcased work from Adobe team members – including extraordinary portraits and action shots from Kelly Castro and Winston Hendrickson respectively – that demonstrate their passion for both photography and Adobe software.
Every story we heard was different. We spoke to amateur photographers and connected with industry legends. Some of them photograph weddings, others capture amazing underwater worlds. While one artist was on top of a snowy peak in Colorado, another was shooting in a rowboat on a remote river in Vietnam. But it didn’t matter what they were doing or where they were, they all kept Adobe photography solutions in their creative toolkit.
Our team puts a lot of research into selecting spotlight subjects that are one of a kind, and we work closely with them so we can provide you with insight into their creative process as well as showcase their inspirational imagery.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the new Photoshop.com, we want to turn the spotlight on you! Starting today, submit your images and answer questions about your own creative process in order to win a chance to be featured in the Spotlights section of Photoshop.com.
