Adobe wants to study how you work with photos

Adobe is looking for hobbyists (not pros) in the San Francisco Bay area for a study they are conducting. They want to send 2-3 researchers to your home to observe you working with photos on your home computer. Specifically they want people who:

  • DO NOT use Photoshop
  • DO use some kind of photo hobbyist product (Elements, iPhoto, etc)
  • Take photos/video with digital cameras
  • Have organized, edited, shared, made prints or projects with photos

I spoke with someone at Adobe who indicated they are looking for three different profiles: people who are into scrapbooking and who have a lot of time to spend on perfecting their projects; younger people who are online a lot, blog, and use camera phones; and people who have at least 1,000 photos on their computers that they’re willing to bring in.

The study should last about 2 hours and they’ll pay $100 for participating. Send an email to csinfo@adobe.com if you’re interested.
