Designer News: Anyone else finding that Adobe programs are becoming more slower to load?

Oh yeah. I need to stuff an SSD in the iMac or upgrade. Religiously keeping my main drive half empty (performance suffers if the disk is above 50% capacity).

Macworld: Adobe brings Lightroom to the living room with an Apple TV app.

This’ll be FANTASTIC for previewing edits to clients from my large-screen television. So much easier.

Luminous Landscape: Whither Adobe? Issues With Accurate Printing From Lightroom and Photoshop.

Roll back or wait for final prints in August. Needs a faster fix, IMHO. This is important software for many.

Adobe PS Blog: Introducing Content-Aware Crop - Coming Soon to Photoshop CC.

Here’s how you will be able to use it: Move the horizon by adding more sky or ground; Change the aspect ratio by adding content around the edges of your image; Fill in the corners when you rotate an image so you don’t give up any of your pixels … and probably more we haven’t even imagined ourselves.” Oh, gimme.

Register.UK: Adobe scrambles to untangle itself from QuickTime after Apple throws it under a bus.

In the meantime, Adobe’s Windows customers now have little choice but to use QuickTime, despite it having two gaping holes in its security that allow full remote code execution if a malicious video is played. Adobe better move fast on this, and Apple customers might want to trust Cook & Co a little less to keep them safe.” Beware, Window folks.

AI: Adobe’s Experience Design CC for Mac looks to simplify app, Web UX and prototyping.

I’ll be playing with this over the next couple of weeks. Judging it against Sketch and associated apps/services. If I come up with anything noteworthy, I’ll do a post.

Macworld: InDesign low memory and old software on new platforms.

CS6 is almost three years old, and Adobe has no plans to update it. Ever.” Nice.

Adobe CC update.

Bottom of this post. I see no fixes for the erased files, no apologies ...

DP Review: Finally! Adobe updates Bridge CC for improved performance.

There’ll be a lot of happy people. Always surprises me how many people still use this poor, near-abandoned software. Now, if it lets us reach into iOS ...

Lightroom CC, ‘app not responding’ ...

File under “Dumb Ass Doings.” I removed Suitcase Fusion, installed RightFont, and turned off a bunch of fonts. Including some Adobe needs to paint their interface panels. So if you have a font prefixed with “Adobe ...”, leave it the hell turned on. That goes for Devanagari, Gurmukhi and Naskh.

Once I re-enabled them, stability returned.

My suggestion ... “Keep Calm and Avoid Instagram.” Heh. Now I’ve GOT to download it and spam the hell out of the service with platitudes.

The Register.UK: Adobe - We locked our customers in the cloud and out poured money.

Missing the point. They also locked out pirates, who were bleeding them dry. I used to run across many people using pirated stuff. I’d read them the riot act, to no avail. I like CC, I like having all the latest toys faster. I just hate the CC desktop widget. A more problematic piece of crap, I’ve never seen. Since the last update, it crashes on every bootup. I restart it, open Activity Monitor, manually quit “Adobe Desktop Service”, and then within a couple of minutes it works again.

[That being said, Dreamweaver needs a complete redesign and rethink. I don’t even crack it open for the sitemap feature anymore. Waste of hard drive space.]

LR Solutions: Rolling back from 6.2. How hard can it be?

LR 6.2/2015.2 CC is apparently provoking problems in El Capitan. Info for rolling back - may be time-sensitive. I upgraded in Yosemite, and so far everything’s OK (knocks wood).
