What’s Creative Cloud & why should you care?

View PSD layers, Illustrator artboards, and InDesign spreads on the Web; share files with teammates; and more. Here’s a 1-minute tour of the new Creative Cloud:

    Creative Cloud is long overdue and a great presentation and storage component for designers. I’ve been advocating the need for designers to have mobile portfolios that allow them to share their work anywhere anytime and give a presentation, in addition to having a website and print portfolio.

    Creative Cloud makes it a bit more seamless now and also adds the ability for collaboration. I’m very pleased with this and the other developments Adobe has been making lately. Designers need to take advantage of and leverage new technology in their work-flows as much as possible.

    Kudos Adobe for another step in the right direction.

    As interesting as Creative Cloud is starting to look as more details get released it still raises many questions that are worrying customers. From threads in InDesign ( http://forums.adobe.com/message/4024252#4024252 ) and Dreamweaver ( http://forums.adobe.com/thread/923377?tstart=60 ) there are many valid points including one about compatibility between versions. And there is David Wadhwani’s blog post ( http://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2011/11/adobe-creative-cloud-and-adobe-creative-suite-new-choices-for-customers.html ) suggesting one price fits all for the Master Collection of Desktop Apps, Touch Apps and Services, and no mention of Lightroom.

    I really hope that Adobe publishes more videos, information and releases about what this exactly is to clear up any misconceptions of what Creative Cloud is supposed to be as right now customers seem to be left with more questions then answers.

    Not sure whether so many folks know about this new upgrade policy from Adobe, but it would be good to let people know.
    “For customers who prefer to remain on the current licensing model, we will continue to offer our individual point products and Adobe Creative Suite editions as perpetual licenses. With regards to upgrades, we are changing our policy for perpetual license customers. In order to qualify for upgrade pricing when CS6 releases, customers will need to be on the latest version of our software (either CS5 or CS5.5 editions). If our customers are not yet on those versions, we’re offering a 20% discount through December 31, 2011 which will qualify them for upgrade pricing when we release CS6.”

    And in the same spirit, they should know now the latest news that the policy has just changed back:
