Hello, Internet. Welcome to Creativelive. This is Day three of Creative Cloud Essentials with Lisa Snyder. This is John re milk of it. And this is Chris Jennings. And we're gonna be your host for today. The final day of this three day workshop with Lisa. And we've had a great 1st 2 days. We learned a lot yesterday. Job. I just can't believe how fast time has flown and Lisa her left or her personality, her sense of humor. I really keeps the pace going and the learning really sticks a little bit better with Lisa. Absolutely does. We've been learning a lot. We've been having fun, Lisa. She makes this easy. She's a professional, but she does it all with a smile on her face with a sense of humor. And with all of our students here the past couple of days, Yeah, it's been serious. It's been a lot of work, but we've been having fun and we've been enjoying ourselves. But one of the things that stood out for me were the animated just now. Lisa showed us how to create our own animated just, and i...

t was something that seemed intimidating at first. But she really broke it down and made it pretty simple. And I know that you're seeing animated GIFs now everywhere, like a create. It seems like they're all over the Internet. People are spreading means they're sending them to each other. They're posting them on social networks as well. But wait, aren't trying to be a part of the fatter the craze. I just think they're pretty cool. And Lisa made it look so easy and fun. So we collaborated with our students to make our own Jeff, and we did. We want to show it to you way we're gonna show you are animated GIF appear on the monitor. And remember that we were talking yesterday about hugs in the workplace. We have an ongoing joke that we've been talking about the past day or so way want to get the students involved with that. They had a lot of fun creating a promo for creative life. It was an April Fool's joke about the art of avoiding hugs in the workplace, but I learned so much from that and the students did to We just want to put that into our animated Jr. It was a joke that had some practical use, and we're going to show it off right here on the monitor. So you're gonna have this playing back here behind us and has, you see, way tried to get all the students involved here and to show off some of the tactics that are involved when you're avoiding hugs in the workplace. Because, for all intents and purposes, we've been working with your students now, the past couple of days, you've kind of been like our co workers. So we've been getting close. Yeah, and when I realized, is that every Jif has a story, right? Eso You know, we start with identifying the hugger. Who Who are they? Are they a sympathy hugger? Are they someone that just wants to say hello? So way our students played the role of the hugger so we could help identify? Yeah. So we have this playing here. I'm just gonna roll it one more time in case you missed it. But we tried to cover all of the tactics that were mentioned in the video. And yesterday in the pre show, Lisa gave me the Vulcan death move. So I was a recipient of that. So we had to get somebody else involved. J came at her, she identified, and then she struck. She knew what to do. It's like muscle memory for her now way had a lot of fun with that. And I'm glad that we got to take some of the things that we learned yesterday and put them in the practical use. So we're hoping that you guys out there can create your own animated GIFs. Never even not a silly is what we did. But you probably have a practical use for your business. So if you are doing that by all means, let us know absolutely so one of the things that make makes us unique of many. Of course, this is a global conversation, but you can join us here alive, toe learn in our studios, either in Seattle or San Francisco, and that's called the front row. If you want to learn more about how you can join us, live, maybe be part of a Jiff, maybe be part of some learning from our world class instructors. Just like Lisa, go to creativelive dot com forward slash front row, but without further ado, we want to introduce you to our front row for this course. Let us. Now your name, Frank, Where you're joining us from where we can find the model line. I know, but maybe you guys don't out there. But we'd love to hear also some practical ways that you think that you've learned from Lisa that you plan toe to put into action. Okay, well, my name is Frank. Billy Fury. I'm from Salinas, California. That's in the Monterey Bay area. You can find me on Facebook at Frank Bella Fury, photography. And one of the things I learned yesterday was reminded me when I was a young child and our parents would take us somewhere in the car pilots all in the back seat. And they would, in order to keep us occupied, they would play the game. I see. And you had to pick something in rotation that you see out there. A tree, a car driver, a dog. So one day I was out there, we were driving and I looked out and I said, I see the universe, and that ended the game. Nobody could pick anything after that. So now with Lisa's class here, it's like I see the adobe creative cloud universe, and I'm not going to steal anybody else's thunder. But the one thing of all the things I would pick from yesterday was the image processor in photo shop. I never knew that existed. And now I see the power of it.

I'm Holly Strauss, and I'm in the Bay Area. I'm just across the bridge and, uh gosh, I like there's too many things you can kind of yesterday, But I guess I really like the fact that you could do video and photo shop. And I'm really curious to try playing with the layers in overlapping photos and the video because that would be really fun. I'll tell you, it's fun.

And I'm gonna really try to utilize that along with the pro site and possibly integrate that in as a selling portion of my website and link it for that. And I have to check that out to see how that will work at. But that might be the opportunity. Well, the good news is that Lisa only scratched the surface yesterday. We are getting Mawr into that.

And it was really cool to be able to get some feedback from folks when I did put up a behalf, so that was really cool. So I'm excited about that.

I have watched the day one and part of the day two classes -- this class is chock full of creative ways to use the cloud to expand your business -- and to help photographers help their clients get more for their money as well as save money in creating beautiful marketing tools. I had been so confused over the lightroom/photoshop thing, and Lesa makes it so easy to understand how to use each program for their strengths or super powers -- so I'm ready to power up my photography business !
