Adobe CS5 - On The Big Screen

Thursday, 13 May 2010

Adobe's Creative Suite 5 Tour kicked off last week with a five-day online festival where Adobe experts hosted eSeminars and guided users through the new CS5 Suite.

The second stage of CS5 ‘on tour’ sees Adobe flying its team to five locations across the UK, the first of which just so happens to be Edinburgh, which means I can reschedule things at work and pop along for a couple of hours. The follow-up cities are Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and then finally London.

Jason Levine, Greg Rewis and Terry White – alongside Adobe UK’s product specialists (including Steve Burnard) – will demonstrate the top new features of CS5.

What's really cool is that these events all take place at Vue Cinemas, so the team will be able to use cinema screens to present the demos. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak one-to-one with the product experts, and there's no charge to attend.

The tour coincides with the launch of the new Adobe UK creative community portal – Creative Juices. Over time, Adobe hopes Creative Juices will become a hub for people to learn, share and discuss ideas and creativity with the wider community. It includes an events section to highlight tours such as this, as well as a blog called ‘The Buzz’ which showcases news, video tutorials, and tips on CS5.
