THE FOLLOWING PRESENTATION HAS BEEN CANCELED:
Enhancing your images with Photoshop presented by Tim Rose
A. Yes. Just call Adobe Customer Service 800-833-6687 in the US for assistance. The process, as I understand it, involves signing an agreement stating that you've destroyed the product on one platform, and in return Adobe will send you the product for the other platform. According to the service folks, there may be a cost involved; verification of product is required; and restrictions apply.

In late September, Adobe will update both Adobe's Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements with version 7, rebrand Photoshop Express as Photoshop.com, and debut a mobile Photoshop (of sorts) for Windows Mobile.
Syncing with the new Photoshop.com
Whereas Photoshop Express (review) began life as an experimental, Web-based offshoot of the Photoshop brand, Adobe's new strategy to automatically sync photos from desktop to Web to phone and back again now gives Photoshop Express a starring role on the Photoshop playbill, albeit using a different alias. Don't let that fool you--although the product will now be Photoshop.com, it will retain its editing features and the ability to post photos to Facebook, Flickr, Photobucket, and Picasa. The bigger difference is that the new Photoshop.com will sync with the two Photoshop Elements applications and the new mobile software.
Mobile app meets Photoshop Elements

At our last meeting we talked a little about Flash Den and not many of us had used it. So last week I checked it out. I signed up and paid the $20 dollars base fee. When registering, you have the option of buying or selling or both. I chose both, although I knew I wouldn't being selling anything right away, it is nice to have that option for the future. Overall I was quite pleased with how easy it was to sign up and navigate the site. I eventually found a piece worth buying and that process was easy also. The rates seemed fair and they had a lot of reviews which also helped. Once you are a member you can comment and rate all of the items available to purchase. These comments come in handy because many of them are other members that have already purchased the file and have questions on how to customize it to their liking. The seller of the file I purchased seemed quite accommodating. He/She offered a lot of useful tips and answered buyer questions. After awhile the seller did stop responding. My assumption is that after a certain period of time the seller moved on to other projects, or just didn't feel like responding anymore. So there is a risk of encountering a problem with a file and the seller not responding. Luckily, the tips and previous buyers questions answered any question I would have had. I do feel as if I did have a question, there was a chance it would go unanswered. Even with that said, I thought Flash Den has a definitely worth checking out and could even be a good place to make a couple of bucks!

About the Event:
CPOSC, the Central PA Open Source Conference, is a one-day, multi-track, low-cost conference about all things open source: software, programming, operating systems, community and more. It will take place on Sunday, Oct 19th at the ITT Tech campus in Harrisburg, PA.
As members of various open source related organizations in the area (including CPLUG & CP.rb) we realized that there is a wealth of talent and knowledge just waiting for a venue in which it can be shared. So the idea of CPOSC was born. A time and place where people with a desire to gain knowledge and people with a desire to share knowledge can meet.

'Snowl' enables users to prioritise messages by importance and have a search-based interface for message retrieval, according to Mozilla developer Myk Melez.
Could the web browser help you follow and participate in online discussions?" wrote Melez in a blog post on Wednesday. "Snowl is an experiment to answer that question."
Another key idea of the project is that browser functionality for navigating web content, including tabs, bookmarks and history, can be used to navigate messages.

"Web site WebToMail sends full web pages to your email on demand. Why? Let's say, for example, you're sitting behind a nasty internet filter at work that won't even let you access your friendly, productivity-enhancing Lifehacker. Just fire off an email to
email@example.com the URL of the web page you want in the subject (
http://lifehacker.com). A few minutes later, you'll receive an email back from WebToMail with the contents of the URL you requested conveniently embedded in the email. The results vary depending on the email client you're using; in Gmail, you don't get nicely styled CSS, but you do in desktop apps like Thunderbird. Seems like a worthwhile utility to add to your IT lockdown toolbox."
