Since mid-September, Adobe’s #CreateNow world tour has brought creative experts and Adobe’s own evangelists to cities across the globe. We’ve been celebrating all things Creative Cloud by giving all of you the lowdown on the very latest updates to our creative offering.

On 26th and 28th November we came to the UK, stopping off in Bristol and Edinburgh. With new features and applications being continually updated in Creative Cloud, the #CreateNow events have been a great chance for the pros and I to show everyone just what exciting and dynamic content can be created using the new suite of tools.

A number of deep dive sessions took place at both events, with specialist knowledge on everything from digital imaging to video editing being shared.

Richard Curtis kicked off proceedings with two photography based sessions exploring Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC, walking through the workflows for designers and publishers and telling everyone how photographers can reimagine their content and share it with the rest of the world via Behance.

Iona Walters showcased Adobe Muse, the software which makes it possible for designers to create web pages without having to code, as well as highlighting how the Edge suite of tools and services can save web designers hours of time thanks to handy features like responsive design.

Finally, Rupert Knowles spoke about the huge shift towards digital publishing and demonstrated just how simple and seamless digit al publishing can be with the Digital Publishing Suite, with some great examples of tablet publications from Adidas and TopGear, which were honed using InDesign CC.

I think the #CreateNow tour has been so successful as we’ve tailored the day to suit what our audience want to know and hear. The #CreateNow sessions focused on the workflows that creatives deal with on a day to day basis as well as exploring how to get the best from Creative Cloud. By listening to feedback and interacting with our customers, we are enabling people to enhance their creative processes.

If #CreateNow has inspired you, find out more about becoming a member of the Creative Cloud and the tools that are available to you as part of our creative community here.

We are thrilled to note that this year’s Adobe Generation is bigger and better than ever before. Adobe Generation kicked off on the 19th of November with the Photo Imaging course. The first Photo Imaging session saw a record number of attendee’s and was the largest live class Adobe has ever held in any part of the world. Moreover, the attendee’s for the Photo Imaging class were not just UK based. With increased global applicants, in particular, Poland, USA and South Africa, our aim to reach and inspire people globally really is a reality. Currently 50% of the Photo Imaging course attendee’s are students. This further confirms Adobe Generation to have sparked interest for a wider demographic- students are not the only ones who want to hone their Creative Cloud skills.

Like all of the five free online Adobe Generation courses, the Photo Imaging course takes place every Tuesday over Adobe Connect, for a total of five weeks; that is five free online sessions! One student noted that “week 1 class crammed full of useful info, tutors really know their stuff & great participation from students” (Pip Pickering). The Photo Imaging seminars from professionals, Ian Usher and Ross Wallis are proving to be really popular. Why wouldn’t you want to take part?
