The Aviary SDK Is Now Part of The Creative SDK

CSDK

The Aviary SDK is now the Image Editing component of the Creative SDK.

Today, you’ll find a new and improved version of the Aviary SDK on the Aviary website. You’ll also find the brand new Aviary SDK integrated as the Image Editing component of the Creative SDK to give you easy access to the rest of Adobe’s incredible creative technology. Come 2015, all updates we release will go directly to www.creativesdk.com.

What is the Creative SDK?

Adobe provides the world’s favorite creative technology. From editing to storage to professionally-designed assets, the most powerful creative services live in the Adobe Creative Cloud. Through the Creative SDK, we’re enabling developers to seamlessly integrate Adobe technology into their own apps and websites to quickly and easily offer the best creative experience to their users.

The Image Editing component of the Creative SDK functions just like the Aviary SDK and we’ve included a bunch of new features for your users in this release:

  • Overlays: Users can now make unique and creative images with our stencils, perfect for sharing on social media.
  • Vignettes: Aviary’s vignette tool makes it super simple to place a dark or light vignette over your photo, with support for custom size, shape, and intensity.
  • Highlights, Shadows, Tint, and Fade: These new adjustments allow your users to have more creative freedom when it comes to manipulating their photos.
  • Draw Brush: On iOS, our user-favorite Draw tool now comes with rebuilt brush technology that makes drawing on photos feel more natural and lifelike.

In addition to your favorite image editing capabilities, the Creative SDK also enables you to give your users an expansive creative experience with these additional features:

  • Unrestricted Access to Content: Creativity isn’t restricted to the desktop, so creative assets shouldn’t be either. Your users can browse, import and save files directly to the Creative Cloud, directly from within your app.
  • File Compatibility & Desktop Workflow: Enable your users to seamlessly send and save Photoshop files between devices and even access individual layers and groups directly from those files.
  • Creative Cloud Market: Empower your users and their imagination with access to a curated library of thousands of icons, fonts, textures, vector shapes and UI toolkits from our world-class creative community.
  • Connected Hardware: Enable third-party device compatibility, like Adobe Ink’s next-generation Pixel Perfect tip, to redefine accuracy in your app and provide custom UI controls for Creative Cloud services.
  • Publish: Connect your users to the Behance network, the world’s largest professional creative community, where they can give and receive feedback on completed projects and works in progress.

Adobe Muse updates now available

Today we released an update to Adobe Muse, the software that enables designers to create HTML websites that meet the latest Web standards, without worrying about the code.

This update is available to all Creative Cloud members, and delivers some of the top-requested productivity features requested by Adobe Muse users. It adds new functionality that is familiar to designers who use InDesign, including:

  • Hierarchical Master pages Apply Master pages to other Master Pages, as well as control the positioning of Master page elements such as headers, footers, logos, and navigation on individual pages.
  • Spelling checker – Use the new Check Spelling command to confirm words are spelled correctly throughout your websites.
  • Widget updates – Updates to all widgets, including the slideshow, composition, and accordion widgets, allow more control over widget behaviors.
  • Site preview enhancements – View portrait and landscape orientations of tablet and smartphone versions of your websites in Preview mode.
  • Site export improvements Easily manage updates to larger, more complex sites by publishing to a specific host sub-directory for sites hosted with the Adobe Business Catalyst service or with a third-party hosting provider.
  • Code quality and performance updates Ongoing code updates ensure your websites load quickly, are optimized for search engines like Google, and will work across multiple browsers.

To get the update, simply launch the Muse application and follow the on screen prompts. Or, open the Adobe Application Manager and select the “updates” panel to find a link to the latest version.
