If you’ve ever had to modify a large number of image files you know the pain of opening and editing each file one by one. Fortunately, if you’re Adobe Creative Suite user, there’s an easier method to the madness and although you might be tempted to look at Photoshop’s batch processing tools, the app you really want to open is Fireworks.
I published an article today at ArtsHacker that provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the hidden gem that is Fireworks’ batch processing tools.
They’re super easy to use and will certainly become one of your go-to image editing productive tools.
Read the article at ArtsHacker.com About Drew McManus "I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.
I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.
In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.
For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
