  1. Thanks for the tutorial on the GPU Performance setting.

    In the past couple of weeks, I’ve upgraded our newspaper from CC2014 to CC2015. Here’s an aspect of this new setting — hell, let’s call it a bug — that caught me off guard.

    When I’m designing on the laptop and the GPU Performance setting is on, at least some transparency settings don’t preview correctly. Here’s our nameplate with a map image in the background with transparency applied to 10 percent, and a link to how it looks when the GPU setting is active.

    This template’s master pages have migrated through versions dating back to 2010 and CS4, so it would be interesting to find out if this is a glitch in conversion. More experimentation after deadline.

  2. I love Brian as a presenter. Our AIGA had him come out once in a while but we haven’t seen him for seminars in a couple years.
