We had approximately 15 attendees, including several new faces. If you weren't able to join us, we've got you covered.
Jason talked about some of the new features and interface changes in Adobe CS4 (Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, Flash and Dreamweaver) that can help make your workflows more efficient, including:
- Switching back–and–forth between applications
- Application bar is consistent across applications
- Photoshop's support of GPU and OpenGL, which enable "flick panning," smooth zooming and more
- Changes in Illustrator's gradient and appearance panels
- Kuler support in Fireworks and Illustrator
- Importing Illustrator artboards into Fireworks
- Motion tweening changes in Flash
- Changes to split-code view in Dreamweaver
