Need Illustrator to develop presentation graphics, Photoshop to edit pictures, or Dreamweaver to create a website? Instead of shelling out hundreds for Adobe products or a pricey Creative Cloud subscription, head to any of UFIT’s six computer labs and access the complete Adobe Creative Suite 6—for free!
If you’re interested in learning how to use Adobe Creative Suite 6 but aren’t sure where to start, take advantage of the many Lynda.com tutorials available free for students, faculty, and staff. Log in with your GatorLink account and enjoy 24/7 access to nearly 3,000 video courses on everything from video editing in Adobe Premiere to creative quick tips in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
Students can also access Adobe iPad apps, such as the newly released Adobe Voice, through Library West’s iPad loaner program. Adobe Voice is an easy-to-use video creation program that lets users record their voice and choose pre-made icons or personal photos to tell a story. Learn more about Adobe Voice and how to use it here.
So next time a class project calls for photos, graphics, or videos, visit a UFIT computer lab and make it all happen—without the hefty price tag.
