One of the hands-on activities at Adobe Max this past October was helping attendees create a Social Media Silhouette. It was a fun little project that gave attendees direct experience in using Lightroom Mobile, Photoshop Fix and Photoshop Mix. The Make It booth was stocked with iPads, computers and staffed with Adobe employees from across the organization.
The flow was as follows:
1)Staffer took a funny photo of an attendee in front of a back-lit white scrim, using Lightroom Mobile.
2)Attendee was then guided by the staffer to correct the image in Lightroom Mobile to make it a true sillhouette.
3)Attendee guided to correct image problems using Photoshop Fix.
4)Attendee guided to create an image-filled composite of the silhouette, using Photoshop Mix and Adobe Stock images.
5)Staffer sent the composite to Photoshop using PS Mix.
6)An action was applied in Photoshop, to add a logo and hashtag.
7)Final flattened image sent to a printer.
8)Attendee also used a preset email account to send a copy of hte image to themselves.
It was great fun, overall, and really demonstrated how effective the mobile apps can be in a real-world scenario.
