Turning static Adobe Captivate slides into interactive Photoshop Layered files [VIDEO]

One of the reasons why we included Photoshop in the Adobe eLearning Suite and in the Adobe Technical Communication Suite, instead of Illustrator, is because of the tight integration it has with Adobe Captivate, namely the ability to natively import .PSD files and preserve all the layers.

With Photoshop for example, it’s really easy to edit a Captivate slide by removing unwanted areas, or moving pixels around and then bring the updated version back to Captivate. This is a fairly simple process.

However, what you may not know is that you can also use Photoshop to turn static Captivate slides into much more interactive “layered” slides.

In this video (00:22:46) I go over how to start with a static Adobe Captivate slide and then turn it into a much more engaging experience by converting various areas of the slide into Photoshop layers. I also show how to sync up audio to each imported layer using the Text-to-Speech feature. Hopefully this demo gives you ideas as to how you can use both applications together.
