We continue our wrap-up of Expo 2008 with another Macworld Podcast recorded from the show floor. In this installment, I’m joined by senior features editor Kelly Turner and associate editor Heather Kelly to talk about all things creative. In other words, we highlight some of the image editors, drawing tools, 3D software and other applications that cater to your creative instincts.

Show notes

We discuss a lot of products in this podcast, but some of the highlights include Nolobe’s new Iris image-editor and the latest offerings from Plasq, including the Doozla drawing app aimed at kids.

Some of Kelly’s favorite Expo sights included Hydra, a low-cost builder of High Dynamic Range images, and the Eye-Fi wireless memory card (which also captured Best of Show honors. Heather talked about Microspot Interiors, a 3-D interior design tool, and the SwingSeat office chair. I revisit the newly-released Modbook (which briefly turned me into a modest YouTube sensation when I profiled the device last year). Also, I mention EyeTV 3, the upgraded version of Elgato Systems’ TV-watching software.

Of course, no discussion of creative software showcased at Expo would be complete without mentioning another Best of Show winner, Adobe’s Photoshop Elements for Mac. Be sure to check out Lesa Snider King’s first look at Elements 6, which is expected to ship in February.
