Adobe Creative Suite 3 (CS3) Seminar

a couple of weeks ago i went to an
Adobe Creative Suite 3 Seminar

i was able to learn a little of a lot little tricks for
Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks (and others)

above my materials and below one of the 8 pages
of my only-by-myself-legible notes

one of the little implements of Photoshop on CS3
is the Photomerge
tool that allows you to select different photos
and merge them into a panorama

and visual sample of this feature here below
i took these 3 photos of a man running, in a row
so the same guy with 3 different backgrounds
of the same street

the initial 3 photos

the right

the center

the left

& here all together now
the auto merge Photoshop did
[click on it for full-size effect and look
for the same runner in 3 different places]

this tool existed before but the results were never that great
and lots of additional adjustments had to be made

and of course the Adobe CS4 is out now
but i don't think my company or many other users
will upgrade to it, at least for a while...

anyway, the seminar
was a very good day for the nerd in me

and sure! it is good to learn all together now
about everything, drawings, photography,
computers, or submarines
