Fall is officially here and if you are feeling a little overwhelmed at work, Adobe has some new solutions to help you work smarter, faster and make your creative solutions razor sharp.
First, for designers who want to extend their work for the print medium to iPad and other tablets, Adobe has a new solution for you that requires only your existing savvy InDesign skills.
The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite Single Edition is now part of the Creative Cloud membership. The web service integrates with InDesign CS6 and enables designers to leverage their existing skills, retain creative control, and expand their design services to tablet publishing without learning any codes. Designers can easily create tablet apps for the Apple iPad, such as brochures, portfolios, annual reports, and more. You can find out more about Digital Publishing Suite Single Edition here.
If you are venturing into web design or need to seek faster ways to deliver interactive and animated web content, the new set of Adobe Edge Tools and Services is your answer. You can now use all of the Edge Tools & Services to design and develop for modern browsers and mobile devices–including Edge Animate, Edge Inspect (formerly called Shadow), Edge Web Fonts, PhoneGap Build, Typekit and a preview of Edge Code. By the end of the year we will also add a preview of Edge Reflow.
Adobe Edge Tools and Services are also part of the Creative Cloud membership. See here for more info.
So check out these new tools and let us know what you think. You can also find out more about the Creative Cloud membership by visiting here.
Since Adobe’s launch of Creative Cloud and Creative Suite 6, we have generated a lot of content to share our news and excitement for the new subscription services, new features and how we want to celebrate your creativity.
Here are a list of resources for your easy reference.
Adobe Creative Cloud is a new subscription offering from Adobe. When it becomes available in the first half of 2012, it will give members access to a creative hub where they can explore, create, publish, and share their work using Adobe Creative Suite® desktop applications, Adobe Touch Apps, and Adobe services together for a complete ideation-to-publishing experience.
Adobe Creative Cloud will be everything designers need, everywhere they work — starting at US$49.99 per month.
The vision for Adobe Creative Cloud is to turn previously difficult, disparate workflows into one intuitive, natural experience so our customers can create freely and deliver ideas on any desktop, tablet, or handheld device.

Today Adobe Edge preview 5 is now available! Preview 5 introduces significant improvements to speed up the animation creation process, new on-stage tools, as well as publishing and optimization features for older browsers and lighter code output. You can find out more here as well.
Adobe Shadow Labs Release 1 is launched today (Mar 7).
The software enables Web developers and designers to work faster and more efficiently by streamlining preview and customization of websites for mobile devices.
Adobe Shadow aims to alleviate the time and stress of working on websites across mobile browsers. Web pros can wirelessly pair multiple smartphones and tablets with their computer and simultaneously view real-time previews of Web content across multiple iOS and Android devices, quickly seeing refreshed website designs with live updates.
We heard from the community that emulators and simulators just won’t cut it and it’s absolutely critical that website compatibility is checked on the actual devices. Adobe Shadow’s synchronized browsing nearly eliminates the need to touch the device, but still provides a real, on-device experience.
