Adobe is getting into the brick-and-mortar shop business...at least for the next two weeks with a pop-up store in San Francisco.

“Photoshop & You” will be open for a limited time between July 23 – August 6 at 550 Sutter Street. More than serving as just a store, this boutique will be hosting tutorials for all of Adobe's software programs during its temporary stay.

There are some items available for sale, mostly consisting of photography-related books, copies of Adobe's Creative Suite software (of course), as well as some other knick-knacks such as t-shirts and mouse pads with photographs printed on them.

However, don't expect Adobe stores to start popping up in shopping centers near you just yet. While this store is testing the waters for future possible retail locations, Adobe's intention with the pop-up shop is primarily advertising for CS and the overall Adobe brand at this point.

To celebrate the opening, Adobe threw a grand opening "housewarming party" for local media and photo aficionados this past weekend complete with a live band and Adobe staff on hand to discuss Creative Suite and the photos on display.
