Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced that the U.S. leg of
its Project: Photoshop and Lightroom education road show will begin on September
5 at over 25 colleges and art schools across the nation. In collaboration with
Colin Finlay, a world-renowned documentary photographer and four-time Picture

access to Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Adobe Lightroom public beta, the new digital
workflow solution for professional photographers. In further support of this initiative,
Adobe is also launching a destination Web site (www.projectphotoshoplightroom.com),
which provides participating students with a universal place to share their work
and blog about their experiences.



The two-day seminar at each school will involve a one-day lecture by Colin Finlay
in which he shares his career as a photographer, including his commercial work
and documentation of social issues. The following day, Julianne Kost, senior evangelist
at Adobe, will provide students with an in-depth seminar on using Adobe Photoshop
CS2 and Adobe Lightroom beta, highlighting their combined support for a digital
workflow. In addition, a select group of students will participate with Finlay
in a workshop assignment. Students will place images from this assignment into
