Adobe customers share software add-ons

Adobe Systems has expanded its Adobe Studio community site with Adobe Xchange, a forum where users of popular graphics applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator can post and download add-ons for the programs. Xchange is intended to be a library for customers to share the custom tools--such as filters and brushes--they create in Photoshop and lllustrator. "It provides members the tools to increase the usability and value of their Adobe software and makes it easy to share them across the whole design community," said Tanya Wendling, senior director of Adobe's Web site. Other sections of its Adobe Studio site include tutorials, examples of work created with Adobe products, and forums for soliciting graphic-design jobs.
