-So tell me Chris what are your impressions of the conference?

Adobe MAX was a really amazing experience for me. Its been a while since i’ve been in a classroom and 3 days of sessions has me feeling like its time to do play around with some projects outside of the day to day workflow. For me, one of the best things I heard was “they put that button there for a reason… click on it. see what it does.” Most of us are constantly up against a deadline and have little time to explore in our DAW. Break it, put it back together, keep learning your tools.

-What knowledge did you gain by participating in that event?

One of the many takeaways for me was that everyone is stepping up their game when it comes to publishing social media content. Whether it’s video, photos or audio, use the right tools to enhance and polish your content before posting it.  Putting in that extra work makes such a huge difference! 

Here are a couple photo & social tools you might love: 

Adobe Lightroom CC for iOS – gives you powerful, professional tools to shoot photos on mobile. Way better than the native iOS camera! 

Adobe Spark – This app is so powerful it’s scary. if you don’t have a graphics person to help you keep your social, web & video content aligned with your brand, get one! But if you can’t, use Adobe Spark.
