  • Adobe Certified?

    Today I was looking at the "Adobe Certified" options at adobe.com. Does anyone have any experience with being an Adobe Certified Expert or Professional?

    +If you are one+, has it proved to be a plus for you professionally? Was the testing tough enough to make the certification worth something?

    +If you hire professionals+, does the certification mean anything to you? Do you look for it on resumes?

    I look forward to your input.

    Jim,

    I got myself certified on Photoshop earlier this year. Is it worth it? Sure. Doesn't cost much, for the study program I found nor for the exam.

    Does passing the ACE exam mean you're good operator? No. It shows that you're willing to put forth the time and effort to learn, and that sets you apart.

    Was the exam tough? Well, yes and no. I learned *a lot* in preparing. It forced me to look into processes and capabilities I never would have known about. There are so many strange little things hidden in Photoshop that I was totally unaware of. I think the toughest part for me was the section on web preparation and ImageReady. Yep, ImageReady is included on the Photoshop certification.

    I say go to it. Really, there's no way you can lose on the deal. It certainly can't do you any harm.

    By the way, the preparatory exams on Adobe.com are *not* adequate preparation for the exam. They can serve as a nice way to figure out which exam to work toward first, though.

          Go to

          www.examaids.com

          They've just put up new study guides for CS3 applications. Now, I gotta' start studying again, too.

            The last time I looked, no, the CS3 tests were not available.

              Straight To The Bottom Line

              InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
