Students at this year’s J-Camp will get hands on experience with Adobe Slate, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop and WordPress.
Innovation J-Camp and the Center for Innovation in Media use Adobe Creative Cloud exclusively for editing photographs, audio and video. In additional to Adobe’s legacy products like Photoshop, Premiere and In-Design, the Creative Cloud has opened up a whole class of mobile apps for creating stories.
One of the apps J-Campers will use this summer is Adobe Slate. Slate is an app that can accessed on a browser or through an iPad. The app allows users to create scrolling, interactive and mobile focused visual stories.
Day two of J-Camp is Photojournalism Day. J-Campers will learn to use DSLR cameras, shoot the best image and do a hands-on photo assignment. Students will create an Adobe Slate project with their photos.
Adobe Slate is easy to use, mobile friendly and free…all you need is a free Adobe account.
