Adobe CS6 – Now Available!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 14, 2012 by

If you are a creative professional, you are likely very aware of Adobe’s latest release – Creative Suite 6 (CS6).
The newest version of the Creative Suite strengthens Adobe’s bond between designers and the digital landscape. CS6 focuses on demanding design world where speed, interactivity and functionality are paramount. In addition to a mixture of suite options (Design, Production, Master, etc) Adobe rolled out a brand new option – Creative Cloud. The Creative Cloud is a membership-style license at a fraction of the sticker price. It’s a nice option albiet in the short-run.
Of course, CS6 is adorned with all the “bells and whistles” expected in a full-version release. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and Premiere have all received a couple great new functions.
The Training Services lab is currently hosting Adobe Creative Suite 5.5. Although, it’s not quite CS6, our instructors are capable of demonstrating the existing and current operations of many of your favourite Adobe programs.
To find out more, please visit the Training Services website.

Having issues with our new website?

If you have experienced trouble registering for courses on our website, we are working hard to fix the glitches. Internet Explorer seems to be causing the most problems, so if you can, use Firefox or Safari or Google Chrome. If none of those sound familiar to you, send us an email at its.training@usask.ca or call 306-966-4800 and we can assist you. All non-campus clients can now request an account for the U of S (which is used on our website for log in). All campus clients can now use NSID login, but if you used an email in the past, you may have to merge your accounts together. Again, if this is foreign sounding to you, give us a call or send an email. This login provides you with a unique user identification that you would continue to use to log in and self register in our courses.
Being registered and logged into our website allows you to add your name to notification lists, self register, remove a registration and update your user account. You will also have access to all of the resources we have collected and posted for our users.
