For many creatives, mobile devices are constant companions, with the potential to be useful tools for capturing and creating content anytime, anywhere. That’s the thinking that inspired Adobe to create many mobile apps that dovetail with Creative Cloud desktop applications, including Photoshop Sketch. And you can get acquainted with this cool app in Tony Harmer’s Lynda.com course, Drawing with Photoshop Sketch.

    Bummer, I couldn’t get the link to work for longer than 1-2 seconds. Was this an actual tutorial?

  • Lynda.com had a technical glitch that affected any of their videos hosted on other sites, including ours. Looks like they’ve fixed it, Ithe videos are working on my end. Try again?
