When we launched Creative Cloud, we shared our vision to build a platform for creativity that removes friction from the creative process and makes it more productive and connected, allowing you to do your best work.
Today we announced an important milestone – over one million premium members worldwide have joined Creative Cloud. To all of you – as well as the millions of other creatives who are part of our extended network through Behance, Typekit, Kuler or through a free Creative Cloud membership – we would like to say thank you! You inspire us every day through your creations, and we’re thrilled to be part of such a vibrant creative community.
A Broader Canvas for Innovation
Embracing the cloud has given us the ability to think differently about our role in the creative world, and gives us a much broader canvas for innovation. New technologies such as cloud, social, and mobile have changed the creative landscape dramatically, and we are fully embracing the opportunity this gives us all.
Our product teams have been very busy since we launched Creative Cloud. We’ve added hundreds of new features across all our major products, added sophisticated cross-device collaboration and publishing capabilities; and integrated Behance, the world’s leading online creative community where members can showcase work, get feedback on projects and gain global exposure. And today, I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of the Lightroom 5.2 update and the new Photoshop Photography Program, a special offer for our loyal photography customers.
But we’re just getting started. Creative cloud is still in its infancy and we have a lot more to do. And thanks in part to your feedback, the year ahead should be fun and exciting as we continue to execute on the vision we laid out at MAX – to build a creative platform with fully integrated software, services and hardware. And as a great example of that, Adobe is moving our cloud pen, Project Mighty, and our digital ruler, Project Napoleon, from a technology exploration to planned products. If you saw our exploration demo at MAX, you already know that this is part of our commitment to making the art of creation easier, wherever and whenever you feel inspired.
So again – thank you all for making the last year truly remarkable. Together we’ve taken Creative Cloud from an idea to more than a million premium members in just over a year. We are honored that you’ve joined us on this journey and are working very hard to get innovative ideas in your hands faster than ever before. To those of you who have not yet joined Creative Cloud and are still considering if it is right for you, I hope you will join us at one of our upcoming Create Now World Tour events. We have a lot to share and hope to see you there.
