Need some assistance:
Do you want to create a poster or brochure? Perhaps you want to make a video or simply enhance your photos? The Digital Media Lab located in the Learning Commons (at the Otto G. Richter Library) provides expert project-based support and consultation in the use of Adobe Creative Cloud.  Whether you are a novice or a long-time user our staff is here to assist you. During staff hours, we are available to work with you to find a solution for any creative project you may have. Drop-ins are welcome, but appointments are better if you are new to Adobe or need more extensive one-on-one help.

Faculty members who are interested in integrating a digital aspect into their classes or assignments should consult with Vanessa Rodriguez, Digital Media Lab manager. We are available to instruct small groups of students or can help you come up with ideas for developing a digital media project your students can create.

Adobe + University of Miami

The University of Miami has made a significant investment in providing access across campus to Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications like Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, and more. These are powerful tools for PDF workflowsimage editinggraphic designpublication layout, and video editing, but come with a bit of a learning curve. The University is working with Adobe to offer training and workshops to help the UM community maximize the benefits of these tools, including year-round support for students, faculty, and staff at the University of Miami Libraries Digital Media Lab.

Newly released Adobe Spark provides next-generation Web tools to help individuals and organizations easily communicate with immediate impact and broad distribution. Come learn how to turn your ideas into social graphics, animated videos, and web stories—in minutes.
