On the first day, Adobe Live includes a 90-minute keynote presentation on, ‘the importance of design’, addressing the crucial part design plays in differentiating communications in this cluttered world and a 60-minute presentation on, ‘the future of digital imaging’ addressing the ‘digital darkroom’, how technology has changed working practices and how Adobe is helping the digital revolution with standards like DNG.
In addition, there will be ‘What’s New’ sessions and ‘New Skills’ workshops on products included in the Adobe Creative Suite 2 and the Adobe Video Collection®, so people can learn from the experts on how to get the most out of today’s tools. There will also be ‘New Thinking’ industry-led sessions which showcase how top professionals are realizing their creative vision through the use of technology.

With training providers and leading value added resellers also present, it really is the place to evaluate the wider world of complimentary hardware, software and services.
“Adobe Live was such a success last year – we wanted to continue it in 2005. We have worked hard to build a programme that encompasses everyone’s needs – whether they are in print or web design, advertising or photography – we have a workshop or presentation that will be interesting and useful. Following the launch of Creative Suite 2, it’s an ideal opportunity for visitors to see the new products for themselves” - said Eric McCashey, Marketing Manager for Creative Customers, Adobe Systems.
