TheFIX 076: Photoshop World Talks I

Photoshop World Talks, Part 1

On this episode of TheFIX host Seán Duggan takes the show on the road to Photoshop World in Las Vegas for some short audio interviews with some of the instructors and industry insiders at the conference. In part 1, Seán talks with Bryan O’Neil Hughes from Adobe Systems about how Adobe’s mobile imaging apps fit into the greater Creative Cloud ecosystem, and the range of creative possibilities that mobile imaging provides. We finish the show with a chat with Levi Sim from Photofocus.com. Levi shares some cool gear recommendations as well as a great tip on how depth of field in your shot can impact creating precise cutout masks for background replacement. Midway through our talk, references to Han Solo and Star Wars summon the spirit of a wookie. On next week’s show we’ll have three more conversations from Photoshop World with Julieanne Kost, Glyn Dewis, and Josh Haftel.
