Do I really need Adobe?

Short answer? No.

But there is a reason so many people have Adobe and love using it so much.

With Adobe creative cloud you have exces to some of the most used programs in the business like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, After effects, Premier Pro and many more.

What does each of these programs do?

  • Photoshop does what the name suggest. It helps you edit your photo’s. Adobe Lightroom can also help with light settings for the photo’s. These two programs work great together.
  • InDesign is for making posters, books, flyers, and almost any publications that are printed.
  • Illustrator is perfect for making Illustrations, infographic and logo’s of all sorts. But also to change colors of logo’s is needed. Here is a tutorial on how to do that.
  • After effects work to animate that illustration you just made in Illustrator.
  • Premier Pro is great for video editing. I edit my tutorials always in Premier.

Tutorials

I will be honest the Adobe programs are not always easy to master. But if you do know the basics of one program then you kind of know all of them. They are not extremely hard but watching a few tutorials can’t hurt anyone.

On tutsplus.com there are so many free tutorials you can follow to master all these programs that does not cost you anything.

On the Adobe website are also many tutorials for each of there programs.

Food moon

We had to stand in the middle of a dark room. There were pictures everywhere that we thought was the moon. There were different moons on each photo, the craters were in a different place. So it couldn’t be a moon at all. our guide started to tell his story. He said they were all pancakes instead of the moon.

I think it’s brilliant that someone came up with the idea of photographing something as simple as a pancake so that it looks like something completely different. The pancakes were placed on a bowl or a sphere to simulate the curve of the moon. And it was photographed just next to the window to also simulate the reflection of light, just like the real moon.

I think it is beautifully simple.
