Video notes #
The audio is pretty quiet. Sorry.
I said Photoshop CC 2012 a few times when discussing live shapes. I meant Photoshop CC 2014.
The other talk I reference is also now online: Photoshop for Stateful and Collaborative Design
The first question at the end of the presentation was “what are you using to highlight the area around the mouse pointer?”. I’m using Mouseposé by Boinx Software. Mouseposé is a great way to show mouse position, clicks and keyboard shortcuts when presenting. I also used Countdown by BitBit to ensure I stayed on time. And, the presentation was run using Keynote.
The second question was “can you please show the URL for the downloads again?”, which is the page you’re reading now.
