A few of my favorite posts
Non-exhaustive, if perhaps exhausting, here’s a list of some posts that I think have held up:
- The Secret Life of Smart Filters explains why PS doesn’t feature filters inside adjustment layers (we tried!). The follow-on post, Simplicity vs. Power in Photoshop, is a little more conceptual, but I still like it.
- In Photoshop, as seen through Johnny Cash I wrestled with the challenges presented by an app built up incrementally over 2+ decades.
- I wrote Sympathy for the Devil at the height of the Apple/Adobe dust-up over Flash Player. Yes, Flash is flawed, I wrote, but the rest of the world needs to deliver something better (which, since then, Adobe has been working hard to help it do).
- In Reflections on Guatemala (or, What’s In A Pen?) I tried to extract my head from my own/Silicon Valley’s collective butt.
- It never happened, and perhaps that’s for the best, but I still liked the wild idea of HTML5 layers in Photoshop, and I still wish we had User-powered help inside Photoshop.
- The whole Idle Philosophizing category is pretty good, I think.
- Oh, and Thank God “E.T.” sucked. If it hadn’t, I wouldn’t be here.
