Have you heard of ChurchStageDesignIdeas.com? If not, prepare for some intense inspiration for making your church’s stage design look awesome! Jonathan Malm has done an excellent job of creating a one-stop shop that does much more than just show you really cool stages, but also gives instruction on how you can make it happen in your own church. You’ll also find on each of the posted designs an estimated cost which is really helpful in deciding which look is right for you.
Jonathan recently put together a really great e-book that teaches how you can get started with church stage design and I knew our TCP readers would benefit from it. It’s got five easy starter designs, as well as some general lighting info. The best part is that it’s absolutely free!
Adobe dropped a bomb on the design world with their latest big announcement—the unveiling of Creative Suite 6 and the new Creative Cloud Service. For those of you who have been eagerly anticipating the update, Adobe surely did not disappoint when they showed off all of the new features that they have packed into CS6. Especially from a performance standpoint, this is a big leap forward. Personally, I have been working with CS4 for quite some time now and I am ready for the upgrade!
But what really has everyone stoked—including myself—is their new Creative Cloud service. In my mind, the biggest challenge that comes with Adobe design products besides the amount of time that it takes to learn each application is the massive price tag. While I have been fortunate enough to take advantage of the student discount in years passed, I am now looking at the full price which is enough to make you pass out. ($2,599 for the Master Collection!) This is where the Creative Cloud swoops in to save the day. For $49/month with an annual subscription or $79/month for month-to-month memberships, users can now get full access to any CS6 tool, including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere, and After Effects. With Creative Cloud, you’re able to download all of the CS6 applications on up to two computers and have access to any updates that become available. Even greater, students and teachers are able to grab the subscription service for only $29.99/month. Current CS3, CS4 and CS5.5 users will also qualify for a special introductory offer of $29.99/month. This is a great way to have access to the most powerful design software on the market and save some money along the way.
Oddly enough, Adobe hasn’t announced an actual launch date for these updates and new services yet. According to yesterday’s announcement, however, these products “are scheduled to be available within 30 days.” You can check out Creative Suite 6 here and the Creative Cloud here.Source: http://www.adobe.com, http://techcrunch.com/2012/04/22/adobe-officially-unveils-cs6-and-its-49month-all-inclusive-creative-cloud-subscription-service/
