As announced this week, Adobe is releasing newly updated Android apps will be optimized for Google Chromebooks, and will be available in the next couple of weeks. This is significant in districts like my own, where ChromeBooks are the dominant device for student and teacher work. You can find out more at the link below.

Colin Smith has released a great summary of the features included this week with Adobe’s latest CC release of Photoshop. He has included a video and a good range of things to know about the updates. While he focuses on Photoshop, there’s a good summary of what a Creative Cloud membership includes and a discussion about how to make the (personal, not school) decision to go with that or stick with CS6. In addition to this, Colin has several good tutorials that are of use to students and teachers.

I found this collection of tutorials that could be useful for students (and teachers) who want to hone their Illustrator/Photoshop and Design skills. The projects are up-to-date and are intended for those who already have a grasp of the basics.

A while back, I featured an article from Printwand created for CompanyFolders, about Adobe Illustrator v. Photoshop v. InDesign. CEO, Vladimir Gendelman from Printwand shared an updated angle on this resource that takes a more ind-depth look at Adobe Creative Suite from a print design perspective. It examines strengths and weaknesses of each program and provides some scenario discussion about when to consider using one program over another.
