Adobe InDesign / Re: Creative Cloud to stop including Pantone Libraries!!
« Last post by Joe on January 20, 2022, 03:01:30 PM »
So, will we have to push clients to use Pantone Connect instead? I'm really not sure how designers or providers can use the Adobe products without integrated Pantone support.

Another question. How are freelance graphic designers like me who are on a budget gonna be able to afford it?

Just another added cost for doing business. Just add an extra few bucks onto the cost of doing the job(s).

Fujifilm XMF / Re: XMF Client for OS 11 Big Sur on Mac with intel CPU

Version: 6.12.0.1 is what they installed for us to be able to run it on Big Sur. No idea about Catalina as we skipped that version.

Were you able to Run XMF Client 6.9 with Catalina or more importantly Big Sur or is there newer version?

I Kept my Mac running Mojave. I'm always nervous about the updates because XMF is always so far behind. My other Mac on is running Monterey, but I know XMF 6.9 will not work on it yet.

I need to update my Adobe Apps so I need to update my macOS but do not want to lose my XMF Client.
If anyone could answer my question that would be great.

Does XMF Client 6.9 Work on Big Sur or Catalina?
   *If not... What Client Version are you running?*


Thank You

Well the job fell through.
They wanted someone experienced in Illustrator but they wanted that person to have experience in creating pie charts etc with some understanding of the data.
Oh well!

I have to do that once in awhile for annual reports. You can make some very cool charts in Illy. I learned with videos I found on the web and just playing around with it. Check it out sometime when you're bored.

Proficient User ... I HAVE dodged that one in a few interviews.
I'd just state that I'm a good EDITOR, but not a CREATOR - these were prepress jobs I applied for so not a big deal ... I think that goes for a lot of us in Prepress.

Probably need to know how to use Illustrator's pie charts and bar graph features. They can get pretty complex.

I find that people who post job descriptions are often listing the qualifications of their ideal unicorn candidate, who usually does not exist. Once they learn that person does not exist or isn't responding to their ad, they might give you a chance if you are honest about your ability but show a willingness to learn and improve.

And there's only 1 way to gain experience!
