Ana Landi, a great infographic maker in our team, took part in the event Photoshop Rockstars in Madrid, which among other things, honored the 25 years of photoshop. In this post, Ana tells us what was the meeting about, which included interesting news and every kind of expositions.
What would we do without photoshop! We are photoshopdependents; and even though graphic design and infographics were not born with this program, without a doubt, it’s a fundamental part of our job. We all remember nostalgically the first versions of Photoshop, the best program of Adobe, which turn 25 this year… It’s a grown up! And we, even much more. Thus, was the first photoshop demo:
Next, Ana’s report: all about the app news and the best exhibitors:
- Firstly, there was a little talk about the evolution of this program because of the 25th anniversary. They also emphasized in the news of CC 2015. Next, those which attracted my attention:
- Adobe Comp: Is an app to make mockups in tablets. This mockup can be taken to InDesign and can be edited. It’s all about editorial design. I leave the link with more info: https://www.adobe.com/es/products/comp.html
- Adobe Color: It’s an app which captures a color palette from a foto. Then you can export that palette to any Adobe app. I leave the link with more info: https://www.adobe.com/es/products/color.html
- Adobe Preview CC It’s a complementary app in photoshop which allows to make design previews for devices in different sizes. It allows to have several work tables with sizes of different mobile devices. Here I leave the link with more info: https://itunes.apple.com/es/app/adobepreviewcc/id973272286?ls=1&mt=8
- Adobe Stock: It comes of the buy of Fotolia by Adobe. Now it is possible to log in the Fotolia images bank (now Adobe Stock) from the window of photoshop library. Tthe good thing about this is that you can place any picture inside the library, use it in the design and then when it is aprooved, buy it later. Furthermore, this library is connected with all the libraries in the package.
After all this, the turn of the exponents came. Even though none of them was into the infographics, it was really interesting to hear the experiences of these artists:
- Mario Sánchez Nevado: This man is a star. This one was the most original and funny exposition. This man is an artist an here I leave the work he made so you can check it out: http://aegisstrife.net/
- Rubén Álvarez: This guy is just 22 and I think he is not aware of the talent he has. It’s a discovery from the managers of Adobe in USA, who sent him a mail to participate in the Photoshop tribute. I leave this guy’s page here http://rubenalgo.es
- Jordan Lloyd This man does an incredible work: he gives colour to old pictures. But he doesn’t give only colour, but he investigates the real colors in the place and the moment so he can apply them to the picture. I have googled this man and he seem to be a little bit hidden in the web, however, I leave an article here which talks about his job: https://resourcemagonline.com/2013/12/dynamichromebringingcolorpast/34522
- Albert Fornos He makes photoediting for advertising and he is especialized in the car sector. Here I leave his work: https://albertfornos.es
- Carles Marsal: This man is a star. He gives online courses of matte painting and his work is amazing. Here you have:https://carlesmarsal.com/portfolio
- Serial Cut This studio is dedicated to the creation of advertising images. They try to make most of the still lifes handmade, but they always mix it with 3D elements. Here i leave their work: http://serialcut.com
