MyraFerguson-400x400 copy.jpgMyra Ferguson: When I was little, my dad purchased the first console gaming system, the Magnavox Odyssey. The graphics for the games were printed on plastic sheets that were held in place by the TV screenโ€™s static electricity. It didnโ€™t matter that the games were simplistic. I was captivated. Later, I saved up money to buy an Atari 2600 (that I still have!). I enjoyed the games, but I wished for the graphics to look like the ones on the game boxes. My first favorite movies were Close Encounters and Star Wars, especially for how they looked. TV options were more limited. If I couldnโ€™t find something to watch, I flipped channels โ€“ intentionally, to watch the commercials. Print ads and billboards also caught my attention.In college, I discovered that the thread running through these varied interests was visual arts. That interest combined with my affinity for writing led me to study Advertising at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Having a proclivity for working with computers, I found myself often in the computer lab working on projects for fun. Then I got a Masters in Design with Digital Media where I expanded into 2D and 3D art and animation and interactivity.

Although my interests had a general direction, I wasnโ€™t satisfied settling for one specific area. Itโ€™s the same with Adobe products. I may have used Illustrator 88 and Photoshop since its first version, but every time thereโ€™s a new Adobe app, a new feature in a different app, or a new service, I canโ€™t wait to try it out and see how I can add it to my repertoire.

In the early 2000s, I got to learn more applications as a Macromedia User Group Manager in Columbia, Missouri. When Adobe acquired Macromedia, the User Group became an Adobe User Group. I shared Adobe tips and techniques with the group for ten years until my husband, son, and I moved to Colorado. Then I started a group in Boulder and later combined it with the one in Denver.

Iโ€™m also an Adobe Community Professional and an Adobe Certified Instructor. I speak at events and answer questions on multiple Adobe Forumsโ€“although, youโ€™ll frequently find me in the Photoshop Community.

For most of my career, Iโ€™ve been an independent contractor, which has afforded me the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects using various Adobe applications. Most notably, in 2017, I wrote How to Cheat in Adobe Animate CC: The Art and Design of Animation. I later authored online courses for Pluralsight for Illustrator and Photoshop. Now my time is divided between authoring and reviewing Skill Assessments for LinkedIn for Photoshop, Illustrator, Animate, and After Effects; various projects for Adobe; providing support and creating learning materials for in5, a plugin for InDesign; and teaching part-time at the University of Colorado Boulder where I get to teach students multiple Adobe applications throughout the semester.

I spend my spare time playing Beat Saber and Walkabout Mini Golf on my Oculus Quest 2. I joined Adobeโ€™s Substance 3D Modeler beta, so I could play with creating 3D in a virtual environment on it.

I would encourage all Adobe users to embrace its interoperability, discover through play, and keep learning.

Nice one. You have cover a lot of information in this newsletter, what I am saying is that always try to provide one paragraph information of all the newsletter at the top, it helps the user to understand whether they have to read it or not.
