Adobe Creative Cloud Gets More Awesome (and More Essential)
Adobe has released a significant update to its subscription-based Creative Cloud offering, making available hundreds of new features to its “CC” desktop applications such as cross-device collaboration and some exciting new publishing capabilities for the design world’s leading creative solutions.
“We’ve added a ton of new innovation to all our CC desktop apps like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign," said David Wadhwani, senior vice president and general manager of Digital Media at Adobe. "These apps include new features that increase productivity, streamline the effort to build mobile content and showcase some stunning new imaging and video science."
Perhaps the most significant development is the improved workflow. Designers can now store (20GB of storage for members), share and actually work on their files within Adobe’s Creative Cloud through their Mac OS, Windows, iOS and Android, ensuring their work is synced on whatever device they are using. Creative Cloud is also now integrating with Behance, providing CC users an opportunity to publish and showcase their work within that 1.4 million member online community, receive feedback, and with any luck, maybe even gain some exposure.
The Creative Cloud updates features hundreds of new features, and includes recent versions of 15 of Adobe desktop applications including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Premiere Pro – bringing the total to more than 30 tools and services for professional designers within CC.
Adobe Creative Cloud users will receive all of the new features and functionality as part of their membership at no extra cost - $29.99.mo for existing users and $49.99 for new users (requires annual commitment) which provides full versions of every app within creative cloud. Adobe will also be hosting a new initiative this month with “Create Now: A Celebration of Creativity,” providing a forum for Adobe users to connect and collaborate.
