Tattoo Mapping Showcase by Adobe

At Adobe’s MakeIt area I had the chance to test Adobe’s solutions suite in the CreativeCloud.  It’s capabilities to instantly access projects from various devices impressed me a lot. Additionally I got inspired by Adobe’s tattoo mapping showcase where participants could virtually map a tattoo on their body:

A fast and super easy way to create cool videos with your smartphone

In one of my previous posts I shared my Top photography editing and Instagram tips.  For a long time I struggled to find a tool that enables me to record, cut and edit videos fast and super-easily with my smartphone. Yeah! I finally found a solution that I can highly recommend. Check out the App Adobe Premiere Clip 2.0 –   you can download it for free on iTunes or the Google App Store. Why would you produce videos on your smartphone? Well, you always carry your phone with you and the new technology enables you to instantly finish a video – whenever and wherever you are!  Check some of the cool video examples here  Get-Started Video .

Here is a video I created with Adobe Premiere Clip 2.0 (MAK museum inspirations)
