I need to make a movie of my desktop with my own audio narration.

I have used Audacity and love it.

Is there a simply to learn tool that would let me record my desktop and either edit the audio with this tool or just let me edit the audio in Audacity?

There will be periods on no activity on my desktop, so I can adjust the age views to fit the edited audio.

Is Adobe Premier overkill? The cost is very high.

Enroll in August's Course of the Month

August's CompTIA IT Fundamentals course includes 19 hours of basic computer principle modules and prepares you for the certification exam. It's free for Premium Members, Team Accounts, and Qualified Experts!

I am pretty good at recording my own voice and editing it to make it sound (almost) professional. So, I have not had to deal adjusting the volume of the whole track or a part of the track.

Now,I need to import MP3's and WAV files and integrate them into my audio script.

Aligning the start times is easy, but it would be nice to import the whole track and have the ability to MUTE the parts of the track I do not audible. This would enable me to have the entire track in the one Audacity file.

But more important, how do I adjust the volume of an entire track as well as boost and reduce the volume of certain parts of the track?

Thanks.

Hello,

I have a HP Z200 workstation, model KK667ET with Nvidia Quadro 1GB graphics card
the processor is Core i5 660 @ 3,3 Ghz
16GB Ram installed (can't remember why exactly)

the workstation is primarirly used for photoshop, indesign

Every 2 years : the station is also used for database publishing which among other intensive tasks includes importing 3.000 Pre Press images as BLOB into a DB file.  Total size of the DB is 8GB.

Needless to say, when this import is started, all other running processes, have to been shut down in orde not to freeze on import.

It is time for me to reinstall this PC as it has not been done in years and has become slow.
Little has been done over the years to boost performance :

Bios Upgrade
Kingston 256GD SSD Now V2 installed

Since upgrading to a new PC is not an option, i'm looking for the best performance upgrade for this workstation

these are my options :

- install 2 cheap SSD's and use the built in raid controller on the motherboard
- Purchase the biggest processor still available for this motherboard (i have no idea how to figure that out)
- purchase an SSD that can be used on the PCI ports available

i'm no expert to which would boost performance the most,
Primarily goal is the speed up  working with the large database files since this has to be done more often.

I have three Mac users who are using Adobe CC Experience Designer, and are having problems sharing.  One of the users has posted this to the Adobe forum, but I'm wondering if anyone there can help.
"Hi:  I am a member of a 3-person Creative Cloud "Team" (not an Enterprise) and am unable to use the Share Online feature in Experience Designer. The problem started a few weeks ago after problems with our account setup/payment. We were moved to a temporary account and then supposedly back to our existing accounts, but under new login credentials. The sharing problem is very random and inconsistent. One minute I can share and my colleagues can't. Then they can share and I can't. Right now I have several XD files open on my desktop and some of them I can share and some of them I can't. Does anyone know what the problem might be. We have been struggling with this for several weeks now and are very frustrated!"

An editor is using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017 to edit my video but does not know how to se the default image for the video.

When he text message me the video, I see it displayed the first frame of the video, ad it looks fine. When I copy the video and past eo my desktop, it's another story.

It shows the image which was the first frame on the video a week ago. I told him there was a way to set the default image frame of the MP4.

Is that true? Can't I specify how the MP4 looks when sitting on my desktop?

And if so, ow is this done with Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017?

Thanks.

Flash: Good Bye and Good Riddance
Unlike yesterday's potentially overblown news about the demise of MS Paint—which was met with mixed feelings—I am quite happy to see the news of Adobe finally putting an end-date on support for Flash. It was a technology that was certainly helpful at solving the problem of online video and interactive games back in the early days, but its misuses (Flash-based site navigation, I'm looking at you!) performance inefficiencies, and security holes mean it's long past time to let it go.

I can certainly sympathize with anyone that still has Flash-based solutions they'll need to replace, though. Perhaps there'll be a nice market for developers to work on doing these conversions?

User has the latest version of Adobe Lightroom - Mac.  They have configured a variety of file export settings, which they would like to use on their MacBook Pro.  

Is there a settings file or other method that could be used to duplicate Lightroom export settings on a second computer?

Hi,

Is it possible to create colour libraries patterns in Adobe Creative Cloud, and then they appear in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Sketch, and Adobe Comp?

I'm constantly working on repeat client projects and I have to keep going back to their logo to sample their default color. I'm sure Adobe Creative Cloud has a better way of managing this across all of their software?

Looking at professional certifications? I've discovered that community colleges near me offer Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA certification exams free of charge! You might find an academic testing center near you that does the same or offers a great discount. Considering these exams usually cost $150-200 when administered by private testing centers? Woot!

Hi Experts,

I have an image that I need to have the text around a path circle. I've forgotten how to move the text once I get it on the path. My steps are:

  • Create the Ellipse
  • Add the text
  • Then I selected the Path Selection tool and hovered over the beginning of the text to move it - but part of the text disappears.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've watched about 15 videos and none of them show the text disappearing.

I hope you can offer some suggestions. I'm attaching my image with the text. I need the Memphis Shelby at the top, and Crime Commission to be at the bottom (right side up - I know this is using the baseline option in properties).

Can you please tell me why part of my text is disappearing?

Thank you for your help,
Debra

Hi, is there software or an app that will take a photo of a handwritten message, be it on any light coloured paper, and convert it to line art automatically so that what is produced is somebody's handwriting on a white/transparent background? For example, I write a note on a piece of paper, photograph it with my phone and upload it to a website or run it through some software to produce an image of my handwriting in black on a white/transparent background.

Hi there!

I use DD CC for a while, and I cannot find the place in which I could change the "brown" automatic color that a code line receive when the line is clicked.

Could someone tell me step-by-step where this $*#*@(@#*  could be found?

Thanks A LOT!

The issue I am having is when I "select all", it selects the art-board. Using the direct selection tool on the the artwork, it selects the art-board.   Using the selection tool on the the artwork, it selects the art-board.  I guess I am overlooking something. Thank you for your help.  --  Joe

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I need to use Photoshop CC to elect an object and place a darker border around it.

For example, this image...

How do I do this in an automated way? I do not want to draw the lines myself, with the line tool.

Hi,

I'm a Windows guy, so maybe I'm missing something...

When I open up a Macbook Pro and lick on the Photo app, I can see all (14K) photos.

I've recently installed Lightroom 6, and tried importing those photos into the Lightroom catalogue. Problem is, I can't find the Mac Photos folder during the Lightroom Import process.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.
