…It’s Movie Monday: Debacle?

Debacle

Debacle is a new video from Nike Skateboarding that’s breaking all the rules with the ability to download an HD copy of the video for free from Nike.com

Debacle was also done in partnership with Adobe, so you can check out a Behind The Scenes video to see what went into making the film:

…NVIDIA wants to know what’s the State of the Art?

State Of The Art

NVIDIA has teamed up with NOTCOT, Core77 and Behance to bring you the ‘State Of The Art’ contest, and prizes include the kick-ass NVIDIA Quadro CX graphics card along with a copy of Adobe’s CS4 Master Collection.

The contest is broken down into three mini-contests, so you have a few different chances to submit, and the first on comes from Core77, and it’s called ‘Visualize the Screens of the Future’.

If you’ve got artistic talent and are looking for a new way to express it (and potentially win some prizes) then be sure to check out the contests and show off what you’ve got!

…Adobe has unleased its Creative Licnese?

Adobe Creative License

When it’s Adobe’s time to show off, you know it’s your time to pay attention.

Creative License is their demonstration to designers of just what’s possible with the Adobe Creative Suite, and their demonstration to regular Joes that they will never have even a tenth of the skill that these guys have.

Prepare to be impressed:

…Adobe Photoshop Express won’t replace Photoshop?

Adobe Photoshop Express

Adobe’s newly launched Photoshop Express is a very beautiful looking, though unfortunately feature poor online photo editing solution.

If you’re looking for an online Photoshop replacement, then this is not it; but if you’re looking to do some simple editing with the power of Adobe doing most of the work for you, then Photoshop Express might be just what you’ve been waiting for.

One of the coolest features is definitely the ability to take the app full screen (and by full screen, I mean FULL screen), allowing you to easily forget that you’re working in a web environment. The downside is that you’re still working in a web environment, so things slow down a bit when you’re doing processor heavy tasks.

Tools include the ability to crop and rotate, auto correct, adjust exposure, remove red-eye, tune various aspects of the image, and add certain effects that work well at times and terribly at others.

One benefit of using the service is that Adobe is providing 2 GB of complimentary storage for your photos so that you can save and share them right from the Photoshop Express app itself.

It’s definitely not perfect, but it is a good start, and worth checking out, so hop on over and see what they’ve got going on.

…Twhirl might be the best Twitter client?

Twhirl

Twhirl is an Adobe Air based Twitter client that runs on both Windows and Macs, and features the following:

  • Connects to multiple Twitter accounts
  • Notifications on new tweets
  • Shorten long URLs (using snurl or is.gd)
  • Cross-post updates to Pownce and Jaiku
  • Post images to TwitPic
  • Search tweets (using TweetScan or terraminds)
  • Timeline filtering
  • Localized to English, German, Italian and Spanish
  • Color schemes
  • Automatically check for new versions

While I’m currently a fan of Twitterrific, I’ve started to use Twhirl on the Windows based work computer, and definitely like the feature set. It’s easy to use, unobtrusive, and gives you plenty of customization. Plus, Adobe is pushing hard to get developers to work with Air, so there’s a lot of support there for future developments as well.

Maybe it’s time to give Twhirl a whirl.
