The 2015 release of Adobe Creative Cloud is here
As part of our ongoing commitment to innovation, we’re bringing huge performance improvements and more Adobe magic to our desktop apps
Since launching Creative Cloud in 2012, our vision has been to give creative professionals everything they need for a connected creative process. The 2015 release of Creative Cloud is a huge step forward, delivering on our vision of a creative platform with deep connections between the creative industry’s most complete family of mobile apps, and powerful editions of our Creative Cloud desktop tools – enabling the software you rely on to work seamlessly, across desktop and mobile devices.
So what’s new? At the heart of this new release is CreativeSync, which puts your assets at your fingertips whether you’re working on your desktop or favourite mobile app. On top of that, we’re announcing Adobe Stock, our brand new service that integrates 40 million curated images that can be searched, managed and purchased from within Creative Cloud’s 2015 desktop apps. And that’s not all! Creative Cloud Libraries are more powerful than ever with additional support for Premiere Pro and After Effects CC, and new support for Linked Assets.
What about the existing solutions within Creative Cloud? As part of our ongoing commitment to innovation, we’re bringing huge performance improvements and more Adobe magic to our desktop apps. Here are a few examples:
- Adobe Photoshop CC will allow you to see how designs and interactivity will look and adapt on mobile with Device Preview.
- Adobe Illustrator CC is the fastest Illustrator ever, allowing you to pan, zoom and scroll faster and more smoothly, ensuring incredible precision in your work.
- Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC will now let you eliminate fog and haze from images with a stunning new feature called ‘Dehaze’.
- Adobe Premiere Pro CC allows you tomake instant colour corrections with the Lumetri Color panel, while smoothing and polishing jump cuts and dialogue pauses with Morph Cut. All of this is supported by CreativeSync, which allows assets to flow seamlessly between Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Photoshop CC and more.
- Adobe After Effects CC now also supports Creative Cloud Libraries, allowing you to adjust a composition’s properties and even resize panels without interrupting playback.
- Adobe Dreamweaver CC now has Responsive Design for creating production-ready websites that dynamically adapt to various screen sizes.
- Adobe Muse CC now has instant access to the fonts in Typekit, making it easier to get your web designs done faster.
We’ve always championed mobile’s importance to the creative process and today, we’re announcing some improvements to our mobile line-up, offering even more ways to integrate creating on mobile to your workflow:
- Our popular mobile apps Adobe Shape CC, Adobe Color CC, Adobe Brush CC and Adobe Photoshop Mix are now all available for Android in the Google Play Store.
- Adobe Hue CC (formerly Project Candy) is a brand new app that lets you effortlessly capture and share production ‘looks’ that combine quality lighting and colour schemes for video, film and broadcast.
- Adobe Preview CC allows Photoshop CC designers to get precise, real-time previews of their mobile designs.
These are just some of the new features we’ll be introducing in the 2015 release of Adobe Creative Cloud, so make sure you check the global announcement post on the Creative Cloud blog.
