I promise it’ll be newsworthy. The show will air 9am-10:30am Pacific time on PhotoshopWorld.com.
When he’s not designing interfaces at Adobe, Kim Pimmel makes short films:
I combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.
Back in college I had a summer roommate named Johnny, a super bright guy who was studying Arabic en route to Georgetown Law. He was quite well versed in world affairs, able to talk at length about all sorts of crises, etc. That’s why it was all the more bizarre–and delightful–to see him coolly reading the Washington Post each morning, calmly taking out a ballpoint pen, and then drawing puke lines & mustaches on all the world leaders.
Clearly I’m a sucker for that sort of thing, though I’m still slightly embarrassed at how many times I laughed out loud at these sign hacks.
Twenty-one large triangles animated by Melbourne, throughout Federation Square. MÖBIUS is a sculpture that can be configured into many cyclical patterns and behave as though it is eating itself, whilst sinking into the ground.
The result is an optical illusion and a time-lapse of people interacting with the sculpture and moving through Melbourne’s landmark location throughout the day.
MÖBIUS was animated over two weeks Friday, Saturday & Sundaybetween the 6th and 20th of May 2011.
Check out this beautifully simple app:
Acquire is a simple, powerful utility for instantly ingesting images from your camera-equipped iOS device into Adobe Photoshop CS5. Using Adobe’s Remote Connect feature, an image shot with your device’s camera is instantly, wirelessly transmitted into Photoshop so you can work with it without delay.
Two bucks well spent!
A photographer friend wrote me to say that her client has requested that she stamp each image in a shoot with a visible sequence number, making it easy for the client to request shots by name. With an assist from Lightroom PM Tom Hogarty, I can suggest the following:
- Go into the Slideshow module.
- Pick a template if you’d like (Tom had me choose Widescreen).
- On the bottom toolbar press the “ABC” (“add text”) button.
- From the adjacent popup menu, choose “Filename.”
- Position the filename over the image as desired.
- In the lower left corner, choose “Export PDF…” (or hold Opt/Alt to get “Export JPEG…”).
- If for any reason you want the visible numbers to match the images’ filenames, add the following steps:
- Choose Library->Rename.
- Back in the Slideshow module, select a preset like “Custom Name – Sequence.” (You can choose “Edit” to get fancy with renaming tokens, but the presets will likely suffice.)
Looks like this game features some really slick art direction:
