Joint General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite User Group
Easy, Powerful Plug-ins from Astute Graphics
Whether you're a seasoned Adobe Illustrator (AI) user, or just learning about this wonderful software program, you're not going to want to miss this meeting. Our guest speaker will be Nick van der Walle, the Managing Director of Astute Graphics, coming to us via a recently recorded Adobe Connect session in San Jose, CA. It's great what we can now offer through Adobe Connect. Astute Graphics is based in England, and time zone differences would make it difficult to view a live presentation, but this is definitely the next best thing!
Astute Graphics is a leading innovative company that designs great plug-ins for AI that are both easy to use and very powerful. Their aim is "to bring back the fun to drawing with enhanced results." (quote from their web site) This presentation will cover their whole suite of products, by giving a quick demo of each. Then, Cynthia Gordon will demo live their latest product, MirrorMe, which is being released just a few days prior to our meeting.
We will also be raffling off two plug-ins donated by Astute Graphics as door prizes! One is called DynamicSketch, which is a natural sketching tool for AI, making your process feel more intuitive and speedy. The second prize will be an InkScribe plug-in, which is a replacement for the pen tool in AI, providing for precision drawing. You do need to be physically present at our meeting to win.
