New Animoto Lightroom plug-in ships
In case you don’t know them, online service Animoto “automatically produces beautifully orchestrated, completely unique video pieces from your photos, video clips and music.” Now they’ve released their free Lightroom Plug-in:
This plug-in allows Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® users to preload Animoto video projects on Animoto.com directly from Lightroom. Just select the photos you want to use and press Export — that’s it!
The plug-in automatically resizes your images before exporting them to an Animoto project, so you get the best quality videos and a fast upload time.
What’s your favorite photo-capture app?
I’m pleased to say that I’ve just taken on product management responsibilities for Photoshop Express, Adobe’s photo capture, editing, and sharing app that’s been downloaded some 13 million times for iOS and Android devices. We’re excited about the interesting directions we can go with Express, and I look forward to sharing more details soon.
In the meantime, I thought I’d ask: What app(s) do you use for capturing images with your mobile devices? What’s missing, and what could be improved? (I’ll leave the question open-ended to avoid leading the witnesses.)
Leonard Nimoy vs. Russell Brown in a Vulcan throw-down
Crazy. According to Flash evangelist Ted Patrick,
At Adobe MAX 2010, Leonard Nimoy will be joining us as Host for MAX Awards and Sneaks. Given his presence at Sneaks, the team is going all out. We have 10 amazing sneaks from Adobe research labs, Colin Moock is hosting Star Trek trivia with Megaphone between Awards and Sneaks, there are some fairly serious costumes in development, and it is sure to be a great time.
In response, Adobe’s Russell Brown–who you will have no trouble believing already had a Vulcan get-up just lying around–writes,
In honor of Mr. Nimoy attending the show, the crazy Russell Brown of Adobe will make an appearance as a Vulcan on Tuesday, October 26th. Look for Mr. Brown at the show!
Video: Driving a blimp via iPad
RC helicopters shooting high-def video? Yawn; that’s so last week. All the cool kids are now flying blimps with their iPads, using onboard cameras to photograph passersby and print them onto little figurines. (I am not making this up.)
