Adobe’s $10/mo Photoshop + Lightroom Subsciption Deal is Back on for Everyone

Photoshop Photography Program

And . . . we’re back to covering this again. Adobe has been teasing the exclusivity of its Photoshop Photography Program for a good 5 months now. Initially, it was only available to previous customers with a CS3 or higher license. Then, Adobe opened it up to everyone for a little bit. Then, closed it back to only CS3 and up customers. Then, opened it and closed it and . . . . ahhhhh!

For whatever Adobe’s reasons are, the deal is back on again and there are no limitations to subscribe. The deal is available to everyone until March 31, 2014. After that, who knows what Adobe plans to do.

You can sign up for the Photoshop Photography Program here on Adobe’s website.

How to Create Animated GIFs in Photoshop

GIFs rule the world of Internet memes. Perhaps they have a few uses beyond memes, but we all know you are going to use them for memes.

If you don’t know now to create a GIF file from still images, check out this short video on how to create them in Photoshop. Even if your files don’t align properly, you can use Photoshop’s auto-align feature to line up hand-held shots.

Improving iPhone Images in Photoshop

Adobe just added lens support for the iPhone 5S in Camera Raw 8.3. In this video Photoshop Sr. Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes explains the process of improving iPhone images in Photoshop.

iPhone Editing in Photoshop

I do many of these same things with my iPhone images; however, I import my files into my Lightroom library. I generally just dump my iPhone images into my Lightroom library every so often. I use a dedicated folder simply labled ‘iPhone’ for each year, so that all of my photos from 2013 from iPhone are in a single folder. From there, I can edit and add to collections as I see fit and I can always go back to find images from my iPhone in a single folder. As an added bonus, all of these images are geotagged, so I have another way to sort if needed.

Do you guys use Photoshop or Lightroom for editing images from your iPhone or Android phone?
