Fun with Photoshop and InDesign

Hello again!

Lots of great information out there about Creative Suite 6 and Adobe's Creative Cloud. You can get the 411 from Adobe here.

Here are more projects created with Photoshop CS6 Beta.

Type and gradient effects created while listening to a recording of Beethoven's 5th Symphony.

Same Photoshop action run on a photo of former President Clinton's home on the University of Arkansas campus.

Many designers aren't familiar with the great effects you can create within InDesign. You can find a cool resource at the InDesign Secrets store. Mr. Rankin wrote the e-book for users of CS3 and above, but there were a few tricks I could accomplish with InDesign CS2.

I took this photo from a recent trip to Alaska.

Placed the image into an InDesign document. Used a hue effect and added type, creating a textbook cover design.

Another effect using the drawing tools in InDesign.

Imagine what you will be able to do with CS 6!
