better living through photoshop… and acrobat too!

15 01 2009

For the last several years, I have sent out holiday cards to friends & family that featured a photo of my family.  It’s always a nice shot.  Children are smiling, cooperative &  ‘just so’.  Mom & Dad are not aggravated, the their faces always reflect the warmth of the season…

with the help of Adobe Photoshop!  Yep – Photoshop is an indispensable tool if you want that perfect family (image-wise, that is).

Ever wish someone was in a group photo, but they were either not around or behind the camera?

Interested in taking a class in Photoshop?  I know some of the top Photoshop instructors in the country.    My favorite is Phil Cohen.  His work is amazing.  We both teach regularly at a training center in Houston – Connect Learning.  People fly in from around the globe to learn at this Adobe Certified Training Center.

My expertise is in Adobe Acrobat.  Folks from all around gather in my classroom in Houston to learn about the terrific new version of Acrobat.  Acrobat 9 offers some amazing interactive & multimedia tools, allowing for very ‘alive’ pdf files.  Check out my promotional video on the exciting ‘pdf portfolio’ technology introduced with the release of Acrobat 9.

Come on down to Houston!  I’ll show you some cool things about Acrobat & point you to some awesome BBQ and Tex/Mex cuisine!

Mostly I just want thinner thighs and a younger face. 😉

Oh … and a good reed. Can photoshop take care of that, please?
