CS6 Launch Party on Thursday June 21st

Two Adobe representatives will help us celebrate the launch the CS6 release of Adobe products. We’ll be holding two raffles for a full suite of the new software, one for Digital Creatives Oxford, and one for the Premiere and Post group (refer to their site for the terms of the raffle, ours is out of a hat – but you’ve got to be there to win!).

Richard Curtis (@richardcurtiswill give a presentation and demonstration of the new Photoshop release with Touch applications and Creative Cloud, and Niels Stevens will do the same for the Production Premium release.

Note the new venue for this event: we’ll be at Headington Hill Hall, which is on the Oxford Brookes Headington Hill Campus, Oxford, OX3 0BP. More details after the next meeting.

Thanks, and hope to see you on Thursday!

Save the date: May 17th – SoundCloud night and April 19th report

Thanks to those turning out in miserable but essential rainy conditions last night. Here’s a summary of what you heard or what you missed.

Alun demo-ed the Photoshop CS6 beta (available on Adobe Labs). We all particularly liked the (optional) black interface 🙂 Alun’s particularly slow Windows laptop showcased the improvements in performance in CS6 when using filters. For more info watch the Adobe videos:
