Creative software developer Adobe
Systems, makers of popular tools like Photoshop and Flash, will be cutting its
spending on print advertising to spend more on online advertising, says
Marketing Week.

According to the publication, Adobe
has seen a lot of success with print advertising, but has decided to pay more
attention to the Web. Today, the company announced that it would be working with

Are you
Photobucket-ing?

Today, I was pleasantly surprise to
read a press
release
that Adobe has partnered with Photobucket to deliver a new
lightweight remix and video editing tools right into Photobucket’s site.  The
same useability concepts taken from Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements are
applied, and I am so excited to try it out myself. Premiere Elements is so
much fun, easy to use and very intuitive, I sometimes even forget the
complexities of the science behind video editing.  If you’re only starting out,
the idea gallery is a good
place to start.
