Hi Folks,

Today I just want to share a couple of very powerful videos I’ve seen online but before that let’s quickly mention video and Photoshop CS6.

All the videos that I post on my YouTube page in the past have predominantly been edited using iMovie but over the last few months I’ve been working my way around Adobe Premier Pro…which I have to say is superb! However the video I posted online yesterday Photoshop Technique: Adding Colour to Highlights was edited completely using Photoshop CS6.

Verdict? I like it! Sure it’s no Premier Pro or iMovie for that matter but when you look into what’s possible such as using adjustment layers on video footage the future and seeing how it develops is going to be very interesting indeed.

There’ll always be the question of ‘Why when we already have video editing software would you use Photoshop?’ and I don’t think that will ever go but just looking at how quick and easy it was to edit the footage for yesterday’s video, for something like that I’d be very tempted to stick with Photoshop, and yeah sure if it’s a video I want to do more to then I’ll turn to Premier Pro.

Just a thought but it could be a great way for folks to use one piece of software for their photo and video editing rather than buying a number of software titles…what do yo think? What do you use to edit your video?

So have you got Photoshop CS6 and have you given the video editing a try? It used to be that video could only be imported into Photoshop CS5 Extended but now it’s available in both versions of CS6.

Anyway I just thought I’d throw it out there and see what your thoughts and opinions were…good or bad 🙂

Motivation and Inspiration
I’ve always been intrigued by high achievers…the Richard Branson and Steve Jobs types. What is it that makes them tick? What makes them what they are?

Over on my Facebook page I’ve linked to a couple of videos of Steve Jobs recently that have made quite an impact on me, so I thought I’d share them here for you too; the first being Steve Jobs’ Commencement Address at Stanford University from 2005 and the second is from an interview when he was at NeXT Computer in California:

Powerful stuff huh?!?

As always if you have any questions or comments, particularly about video and Photoshop CS6 then feel free to make use of the comments section below but in the mean time, whatever you’re up,

Enjoy 🙂
