Adobe has released a new Adobe Digital Publishing Suite Getting Started Guide, written specifically for DPS Professional and Enterprise customers. The downloadable PDF guide contains a good overview of basic DPS concepts, account setup and configuration, how to create folios and articles, how to add interactivity and media, app distribution, and more.
You can download the Getting Started Guide here.
Adobe DPS (Digital Publishing Suite) is a great platform to produce digital magazines from InDesign. Michaël Chaize uses this platform every month to produce Appliness. You can embed HTML5 animations produced with Edge Animate in your DPS publications, but if you want to keep a transparent background, it’s tricky. Michaël has found a way to make it work. Look at this video to understand how to embed Edge animations in DPS with a transparent background.
As of CS6 you can now add styles to Groups/Folders!
How can this be useful? In many ways actually. You might want to add double drop shadows or double inner shadows to a layer or set of layers. You might want to add a color overlay or gradient overlay to an entire set of layers to tweak color and lighting as a group and not on individual layers… The possibilities are endless!
And together with this feature came another feature - Clipping Masks on folders!
I work from home and prefer to video conference my offsite meetings instead of teleconference. Its a vastly improved working experience. But I didn’t want people to see the background of my working space.
I looked into complicated popup systems, constructing my own out of PVC, custom attachments that fit onto your chair, etc. None of these were economical or attractive.
The solution was super simple. Deka curtain wire from Ikea, installed on facing walls, a few inches below the ceiling and an old curtain.
When not in use, the curtain slides up against a wall, in my case next to a cabinet.
