Holy cloud computing Batman. Adobe has released a big, huge, enormous update to Creative Cloud this early summer evening (it’s summer here in California, Southern hemisphere folks). We have 15, count ‘em, new desktop applications – now branded CC to signify their future as connected, socially-integrated apps. That’s Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver and many, many (ok, twelve) more.
And no, that doesn’t mean you have to be connected to the Interwebs to use them or that Photoshop is now “in the browser”, as I overheard some tech guru tell someone the other day. Adobe evangelist, the great Terry White, busted those myths a wee while back, here. The CC apps are just part of what we have to offer, with new community and publishing services integrated into the Creative Cloud experience.
Check out what the creative cloud team is saying, here.
Thanks again for using Creative Cloud. If you have any questions or comments, please post them in our forums, where we are continuing the conversation.
