Two Recent MacVoices Appearances

One of the fun parts of my job is being able to talk to people about new stuff. In this case, I recently did two podcast recordings with Chuck Joiner to talk about the new iMovie ’11 and Photoshop Elements 9. Take a listen:

MacVoices #10126: Jeff Carlson Helps You QuickStart with Photoshop Elements 9

Jeff Carlson is the author of two new books, Photoshop Elements 9 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide and Photoshop Elements 9 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, both focusing on the new version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9. Jeff explains why he and Peachpit decided separate books were best even though there is parity between the two platform versions of Adobe’s approachable photo editing software. New to this version of Elements is the Organizer; Jeff explains what it is, what you can do with it, and how it differs from Bridge. Jeff also talks about why Elements and iPhoto shouldn’t be compared, and what each does best, explains the new content-aware healing technology that is the shining star of Elements 9, and more.

MacVoices #10125: Jeff Carlson Looks At The Known and Unknown Features of iMovie ‘11

Jeff Carlson has been spending lots of time with the new iMovie ‘11, and has discovered a number of useful, cool and largely undocumented features. Jeff discusses the under-publicized return of the timeline (even if it isn’t called a timeline), the usefulness of Movie Trailer and other effects, and then dives into things you didn’t know, including rolling shutter fix, morse code in a theme, and several other minor but tasteful additions. iMovie ‘11 still isn’t good with interlaced video; Jeff explains what that means to you and how to work around it, and why iMovie ‘11 is finally almost like the long-dead iMovie HD.
