TIP 132: Using Photoshop Album Slideshows and Picture Tasks

If you've forgotten to get a birthday card in the mail to your best friend, don't despair. You can use Adobe Photoshop Album (Windows), or other Photoshop products, to create interesting slideshows and email greetings called eCards. Content can be exported from Photoshop Album in PDF format. Once you open that PDF document in Acrobat, two plug-ins are activated, and Picture Tasks is added to the Task Button toolbar; the button is also available by choosing View > Task Buttons > Picture Tasks, although it isn't active unless the appropriate document is open in Acrobat. The Image Viewer plug-in displays the slideshow or eCard content; the Picture Tasks plug-in provides some new commands that let you work with the files' content. The first time you open a document created in Photoshop Album, you'll see a message dialog that tells you you can export, edit, and print the pictures embedded in the document, as well as send them to an online print shop for developing. Once you've read the message, click Don't show again at the bottom left of the dialog to hide it in future sessions.

Take It for a Test Drive

Photoshop Album is a program that interacts seamlessly with Acrobat. You can try the program for yourself. On the Picture Tasks menu, click Get Adobe Photoshop Album to open an Online Services Wizard (Online Services Assistant). Follow the instructions on the wizard to buy Photoshop Album or download the free Photoshop Album 2.0 Starter Edition.
