Presenting Photoshop at NBAUG

The first of May, I made a presentation on some of the new features in Photoshop CS5 along with other SRJC instructors at the North Bay Adobe Users Group's big CS5 launch party. Instructors from the college each spoke about their areas of expertise in the new Adobe Creative Suite. I demo'd a little on the Content Aware Fill option on some tools, but mainly on the new Bristle brushes, which seek to emulate traditional paint media. As usual, new tools in Photoshop are a mixed bag for digital artists, so we'll have to see which ones end up being the most useful. But for the first time in a while. brushes have received some attention and the updated brush engine seems to work better.

I probably should have posted this before the event, but I may be back in the fall to present a more in-depth look at Photoshop's new tools, so stay tuned. If you are in the San Francisco North Bay, I recommend joining; it's free and easy. Read about it here.
