Back from MAX 2017

But after a few years I learned that I had an even bigger love for teaching Adobe products to designers in a classroom environment and speaking at conferences. So that’s what I did for the next 8 years, through out Europe, the US and Australia, before I joined Adobe in 2015.
Last year, I was a guest speaker at Adobe MAX 2016 in San Diego. And I was thrilled to learn that my suggestion to organise an Adobe InDesign session for advanced users was approved. Not only was I excited to put on my (classroom) trainer shoes again, I got to host a hands-on lab session for 100 people at a time. And the best thing of it all was that I got to do that 3 times in total during the MAX conference. Continue reading Back from MAX 2017, with a wonderful story

I just released my fourth video tutorial on YouTube. This time I’m using Adobe Photoshop to create a “flexible grayscale” image. This means I’m converting a colour image to a grayscale version, but I’m doing it in a non-destructive way that would still print using only one printing plate.
