Understanding and mastering how color works in Adobe Creative Cloud
Our local Adobe CC evangelist, Russell Viers, will CHANGE YOUR LIFE when it comes to working with color in your projects. We live in a world of color and frequently it needs to match across projects and applications. Do you know how to pull in color themes from images, use Adobe capture for fun at parties, change colors in seconds throughout your entire project, or understand the difference between Adobe Swatch Exchange vs. Themes vs. Libraries? We've always been taught about CMYK vs. RGB color space for print vs. on-screen designs. But what about all the oddball things about color we never talk about? We'll talk about strategy: did you know that simply naming swatches differently can have a HUGE impact on your production time? If you've not mastered the plethora of color techniques, tools, and strategies of Creative're working too hard! Join us for a high-energy evening of Russell Viers peeling back the mysteries of color workflow in Creative Cloud. Please RSVP and bring a friend! Let's pack the house like we did last month.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Our group was founded in 2007 as one of four official Adobe groups in Kansas City. We're designers, developers, digital photographers, freelancers, producers, in-house corporate marketing types, and interested students of all ages — focusing mostly on visually-oriented products in the entire Adobe Creative Suite and Creative Cloud, with a strong emphasis on Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and other tools with a visual emphasis. NO program is off-limits, though...if it's visual, we'll talk about it!

    We usually meet on the FIRST MONDAY of every month, but sometimes special events will change that schedule so always check the web site to see where our next meeting will be!

    In early 2013, we made Centriq Training our new monthly home. Centriq is located directly across from the Ward Parkway Shopping Center at 8700 State Line (2nd floor).

    Adobe provides us with great presentations, speakers, and prizes. If you're a regular participant in our group, you're very likely to take home some fantastic goodies. Twice a year, we are authorized to give away an entire year's subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud — basically "everything Adobe puts out for creatives" on a membership basis. Additionally, throughout the year we have books, t-shirts, software, and evaluation items for our members...these giveaways are based on your attendance and participation.

    Whether you're just starting out with Adobe tools or you're an experienced designer, we look forward to welcoming you to our community. It's a lot of fun and nobody walks away empty-handed!

    (Due to the proliferation of spammers and scammers, we've had to resort to approving new members on an as-requested basis rather than letting Meetup auto-join new people. To join our group, we ask that you please use a "real" name and a "real" photo of yourself -- our group is composed of real people, not flowers, pets, or abstract designs. You're a visual type, but here's your chance to show us what YOU look like. Thanks for your understanding!)
