Crank it up to 15: Introducing Adobe Photoshop CC 2014
Today, we are launching a new Creative Cloud Photography plan for $9.99 a month. In response to overwhelmingly positive feedback from you about our $9.99 per month promotional bundle of Photoshop and Lightroom, today we make the plan a Creative Cloud offering open to any customer. You asked for it. We listened.
In addition, we are delighted to announce a full refresh of our digital imaging line of products, plus a few exciting new treats. With today’s announcements we move forward on our promise to unite mobile, social and desktop — connecting the planet’s best photography tools to the iPhone and iPad, enabling you to do serious work anywhere – on the PC, Mac and mobile devices – and share it seamlessly among them. The best news of the day…this is just the beginning.
Let’s start with the new treats
Adobe Lightroom on the iPhone. One year ago, Lightroom Group Product Manager Tom Hogarty began a very open conversation with you about how Lightroom should address your mobile needs and today we’re introducing the first version of your favorite photography tool on iPhone, built based on your feedback. Now with Lightroom 5.5 and Lightroom mobile on iPhone and iPad (iPad version shipped in April 2014), you can take Lightroom anywhere and seamlessly edit, enhance and share all of your images across your desktop, devices and the web. Lightroom on your iPhone is available as a free download starting today at the App Store. We look forward to continuing the conversation as we add new capabilities to support your mobile, social and editing needs so keep the feedback coming.
Adobe Photoshop Mix for the iPad. Today we are also releasing Photoshop Mix, which connects Photoshop CC to your iPad, giving you greater creative freedom to edit your images while away from your desktop and easily share them back to Photoshop when you want to take your work further. With Photoshop Mix you can open images from Creative Cloud, Lightroom, Facebook, or even grab single layers from PSDs stored in Creative Cloud. You can combine images using world-class selections and masking technologies, non-destructively add creative looks, and access Photoshop CC features using Creative Cloud – including Upright, Camera Shake Reduction and Content-Aware Fill, all from your iPad – and then share it all back to Photoshop CC as a high resolution, layered file. This is a very new way to work with Photoshop and we look forward to your feedback on how to refine this experience to enable you to push the limits of your creativity across all your devices. Available now, for free on the App Store.
And the main course…Adobe Photoshop CC
Today we’re also releasing a completely new version of Photoshop CC with important new features for designers and photographers: from improved Layer Comps to enable you to sync changes across multiple comps, to new Blur Gallery motion effects like Spin Blur and Path Blur, to Focus Mask which automatically selects the area of an image that is in-focus, to improved type and font capabilities, and even more 3D printing enhancements. This release is packed with new capabilities that enable you to push your creativity farther, faster.
Get it all for $9.99 per month
And now you can get all of what I’ve described above with the new Creative Cloud Photography plan for $9.99 per month. Whether you’re a photography enthusiast or a pro, the new Creative Cloud Photography plan gives you everything you need: the world’s best photography tools-including Photoshop and Lightroom, new creative tools on the iPad and iPhone, seamless sharing across devices and the ability to do real photographic work anywhere – at the incredible price of just $9.99 per month.
We hope you enjoy exploring and experimenting with all of the goodness we’ve released today. We as a team have never delivered so many new things to our customers across so many products and platforms on one day. We can’t wait to see what you create!
