If you are a Designer of any type, Graphic, Web, Print, Interior, you know that the field changes and grows continuously.  Technology and changing consumer tastes and attention combine to make this a most challenging profession.  Keeping up with the latest can be difficult so Techsnoop is helping out by bringing you quick updates to keep your skills on the edge.

Freelancers need all the help they can get to be as productive as possible.  Tablets are a great tool to keep track of ideas on the fly or impromptu meetings with potential clients.  Here are a couple of items to maximize your tablet investment.

Adobe Photoshop Touch, available for Android and iPad is a great way to mock up ideas with teams or clients on the go, without breaking out the lumbering laptop.  At only $9.99, its also affordable for even budget freelancers.

Highlights include;

  • Available for iPad 2 or later and Android.
  • Work with core Photoshop tools designed for tablets.
  • Use your tablet camera to fill area on a layer.
  • Select part of image to extract by scribbling.
  • Perform Google searches and share images on Facebook right in the app.
  • Sync files to Adobe Creative Cloud and open in Photoshop.

Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro app is for creating original images on the fly and makes your tablet into a digital sketch book.  Best of all, it comes in a free version (without the full set of features).  Check out the video;

There has been lots of buzz about the new Adobe releases, so Techsnoop will be presenting overviews and reviews of the most important features so you can decide if its time to upgrade.

This feature will become a favorite of everyone; editing video (camera phone anyone?) with Photoshop.

AlertAlert! A new virus is out which can circumvent your anti-virus program.  It comes from phishing websites urls and can take over your computer.  If you get a message to update Adobe Flash player and cannot shut it down, you have been infected.  Another symptom is clicking on links on websites and being given a download message instead of going to the link action.  Also, if you cannot open folders on your hard drive, you may be infected.  I was infected visiting a site I have gone to in the past.  It was not infected then, but is now a victim of phishing.  This can happen to anyone.

If you suspect you have this virus, seek help immediately.  It can be cleaned off by going to a system restore point that is known to be clear of the virus.  If you are not setting system restore points and backing up your files on a regular basis, DO IT NOW.

FYI, I have a superior anti-virus program which is updated twice a day.  My computer is scanned every day.  When I scanned my computer, the program did not recognize the virus so it may be a keylogger.  If you are infected, change all of your passwords, uninstall Flash player and Java and reinstall them from the developer sites.  I have taken all of these steps and it was a pain.  But it would have been much worse if I had not had my files backed up and my system restore points.  Have a happy Holiday season and enjoy shopping online safely.
