Creative Pros: You’re 3 minutes away from working smarter

Three Minutes Max is a fun—and competitive—session at our annual CreativePro Week conference. Here’s how it works: speakers have three minutes to wow the audience with their best Photoshop, PowerPoint, InDesign, or Illustrator power moves, and attendees vote on which expert’s tip is the best.

Below you’ll find just a few of our expert tips from previous conferences. Subscribe to our CreativePro YouTube Channel for more quick, savvy solutions.
