At risk of swamping you with MAX coverage, I wanted to pass along a bit more info. Jen deHaan has posted in-depth coverage of the Day 2 keynote, and Matt Woodward offers complementary coverage (PDF). Jen’s notes mention some new hooks for doing mobile authoring from Photoshop:
- Using Photoshop.next, Bill has Café Townsend open. Before he hands it over to the developer, he wants to make sure the design looks correct.
- In Photoshop, he selects "Save for Web and Devices."
- He clicks the button at bottom to preview content, and it opens mobile emulator — a newer version of mobile emulator that we’re working on. Making sure that image size, display, alignment is OK for the designer. Can check that it works on a variety of devices. You can change things like brightness, make sure that the contrast is OK when the phone is indoors, outdoors, etc.
This, like the Photoshop/Dreamweaver and Photoshop/Flash integration shown yesterday, elicited spontaneous applause from the crowd–always music to a product manager’s ears. 🙂
