What's New in Adobe's Creative Cloud? 3-D Printing Support, Perspective Warp & More
A new version of Adobe's Creative Cloud software suite has been released and there is a whole new world of possibilities to be explored for the 1.4 million designers currently using the system.
Adobe's update to Creative Cloud covers many of the software's core tools including Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. What has stolen the headlines over the past week, however, has been the added support for 3D Printing in Photoshop which will enable designers to build and print 3D designs in the imaging software. 3D Printing is definitely a show stopper, but there are many other key improvements that have been made in this most recent update that are worthy of mention.
- Photoshop CC now offers a 'Perspective Warp' feature (see image below) that makes it easy to alter the viewpoint from which an object is seen; 'Linked Smart Objects' which enable obejcts to be used across multiple Photoshop elements.
- InDesign CC will now automatically search the Typekit desktop font library for missing fonts and offer the option to use those fonts, or similar fonts, if it finds a match. InDesign CC also now includes support for EPUB 3.0 specification including new ways to add interactivity for ebooks.
- Illustrator CC now simplifies the creation of rounded corners with the new Live Corners controls, offers a rebuilt Pencil Tool and more.
