Adobe Stories Show the Power of Imagination

The extent of stories and range of creativity displayed on Adobe Stories has been a real joy.

One unusual story we’ve come across is that of Jeff Fina, a military veteran who, by perfecting his digital abilities with Adobe Photoshop, was able to successfully transition out of the armed forces and into a new life as an artist and owner of a digital print service in Orange County, New York.

Jeff tells us:

I started photography in 2004 in Iraq as a way to feel more at peace with being 19 years old and separated from my family and fiancé (now my wife)…. I would stay up late and spend any time off photographing and playing in Photoshop CS2….. Iraq (and Photoshop) became the foundation for my future in visual arts.

After safely coming home in early 2005, I knew I didn’t want to do anything else but study Visual Communications of any sort.
