Adobe Photoshop Workshop

Last Dec 9 &10 ,I was invited as a resource person to give a Photoshop workshop for graduating students (BS in Computer Science) of Pamantasang Lungsod ng Muntinlupa. I was adviced to have an advanced course but it turned out that some of them have not yet touched Photoshop so I had to tackle the basics of Photoshop first.

Most of them , if not all, has used Macromedia Fireworks so they are not really newbies and they recognized familiarities between the two programs. I advised them to study Photoshop since Adobe has bought Macromedia, Fireworks will likely be phased out and more integration (of Photoshop) with Dreamweaver will likely be the new scenario. I also advised them that Photoshop is an industry standard and that is what employers are looking for: Industry standard skills.

Inspirations

Designers need inspirations to make a an artwork or a masterpiece. But inspirations can be in many forms. It can be that you are inspired because you are in love. Maybe you are inspired because an event triggered something in you. But you can inspired also because you have read something that sparked your imagination. These are called inspirational quotes. And here are some of them.

Ask and you shall receive, Knock and it will be opened
People speak as if luxury and comfort are ingredients of happiness when all they really need is something to get excited about
Seek and you shall find
Remember that we will always be the product of our choices. "Choosing the "best things" is saying no to "good things"
Insanity is also defined as "to keep doing the same thing and expecting different results"
Make sure that the things you live for, is worth dying for.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but ACTION
A man will reap exactly what he sow
