Adobe Creative Cloud

All New Creative Cloud for 2014 is Here


We’ve been hard at work the last two years to address four key areas of the Creative Cloud you told us to focus on: performance boosts, workflow efficiencies, support for new hardware and standards, and of course innovative features, which we call the Adobe “magic.” If you’ve been hanging on to your old CS disks, waiting for the right time to join the Creative Cloud community, that moment is here. The latest version—available today—is packed with new, truly inventive features that will make it easier to do your work from anywhere, help you do it faster, and let you bring all of those great creative ideas in your imagination, to life.

Read on for the highlights list of what’s new in Creative Cloud, and click through to the product blogs and videos to get a deep dive directly from the teams.

Major updates across our desktop apps

  • Photoshop CC now has Blur Gallery motion effects for creating a sense of motion, and the recently introduced Perspective Warp for fluidly adjusting the perspective of a specific part of an image without affecting the surrounding area. Focus Mask (did you see the sneak?) makes portrait shots with shallow depth of field stand out, and new Content-Aware capabilities make one of the most popular features even better. We’ve also added more camera support to Lightroom (version 5.5) as well as a new Lightroom mobile app for iPhone. The Photoshop and Lightroom blogs have the full scoop.
  • The Adobe Illustrator blog has the rundown on what’s new in Illustrator CC, such as Live Shapes to quickly and non-destructively transform rectangles into complex forms and then return to the original rectangle with just a few clicks.
  • With InDesign CC layout artists can now move rows and columns around in tables by simply selecting, dragging and dropping, which will be a big time saver. The new EPUB Fixed Layout means you can create digital books effortlessly.
  • The team is rebuilding Adobe Muse CC as a native 64-bit application and it now includes HiDPI display support for sharper-looking images, objects, and text.
  • Originally previewed at the NAB show in April, new features in our video apps include Live Text Templates, Masking and Tracking plus new integrations that leverage the power of Adobe After Effects CC inside Adobe Premiere Pro CC. It’s better, faster, stronger. Read more on our Pro Video blog.
  • Dreamweaver CC lets you see your work come to life. You can now view your markup in an interactive tree using the new Element Quick View, to quickly navigate, and modify the HTML structure of pages. The Dreamweaver CC blog has all the details.

And there’s so much more so check out all of the new features over on

Creative Cloud connected mobile apps and new hardware—because our world is mobile.

An entirely new family of connected mobile apps and the hardware (yes, Adobe is releasing hardware) could be the things we all look back on in two years and say, “OK that really changed how I do my work.” These are incredibly powerful apps that start to bring the functionality you get from desktop apps, to mobile. Pros will want to use them, but they’re easy enough that anyone can use them. Get these apps now—they are all free:

  • Adobe Sketch, a social sketching iPad app for free-form drawing.
  • Adobe Line, the world’s first iPad app for precision drawing and drafting.
  • Adobe Photoshop Mix brings the powerful creative imaging tools only found in Photoshop right to the iPad, for the first time. The focus of this release is to be task oriented, so we started with the two most-used features: precise compositing and masking. PS Mix also includes Upright, Content Aware Fill and Camera Shake Reduction—and integrates back to Photoshop CC on the desktop.
  • Adobe Lightroom mobile for iPhone, extending Lightroom right to your iPhone.

The Creative Cloud connected mobile apps complement and enhance the new creative hardware that’s also available now. Adobe Ink (formerly Project Mighty) is a new digital pen that connects to the Creative Cloud, giving users access to their creative assets—drawings, photos, colors and more—all at the tip of the pen. And Adobe Slide (formerly Project Napoleon) is a new digital ruler to create precise sketches and lines. As we talked about previously, these new pieces of hardware “make digital creativity both more accessible and more natural by combining the accuracy, expressiveness and immediacy of pen and paper with all the advantages of our digital products and the Creative Cloud.” Adobe Ink and Slide demonstrate how mobile is now a true partner in the creative workflow.

Creative Cloud services tie it all together so you can work wherever you are.

We all work on multiple devices. We move between desktop or laptop to phone and tablet. Now Creative Cloud is connected to iOS devices, so you can take it wherever you go; your creative identity isn’t just tied to your desk. All of the latest desktop apps, mobile apps and creative hardware are tightly integrated through Creative Cloud services. Simply put, you can now access and manage everything that makes up your creative profile—files, photos, colors, community and so much more—from wherever you are. Get the new Creative Cloud app for iPhone and iPad for full access on your mobile devices.

New offers for photographers, enterprises and education

  • For all photographers—hobbyist, prosumer and professional—we’re introducing a new Creative Cloud Photography plan at just $9.99 per month.
  • For our Education customers, we now have a device-based licensing plan for classrooms and labs so more than one person can access Creative Cloud on a single machine. The special student/teacher edition pricing also got a little sweeter, as the full Creative Cloud is now available to them at just $19.99/month for the first year.
  • For our Enterprise customers, we’ve added file storage and collaboration to Creative Cloud, along with expanded options for deployment (named user vs. anonymous) and a new dashboard for managing users and entitlements.

There is so much that’s new in the 2014 release of Creative Cloud that you have to take a few minutes to click around, read about the new apps, and watch videos of the new features. Are you a paid member? All of it is available now for you. Have you been considering the move to Creative Cloud? The new versions of the desktop apps you use most have added hundreds of new features since CS6. There really is no better time to join the community.

    And of course Android is NOWHERE IN SIGHT. Adobe should also off their mobile apps for the Android platform, Android if a powerful competitor in the mobile OS market and it’s odd that Adobe does not exploit that.

    • By David - 6:35 PM on June 21, 2014  

      Adobe may release Android versions in the future, but it will depend on user demand.


      • By Ann - 5:57 PM on June 22, 2014  

        Consider it demanded!

      • By Ray - 2:24 PM on June 24, 2014  

        So 80% market share is not enough for Android support?

      • By Carri - 10:47 AM on June 26, 2014  

        How are they measuring demand? I’ve been an Adobe user for years, and I’d love mobile apps for Android, but have never seen any way I can “demand” it. Is there a department we’re supposed to email? A feedback form we can submit?

      • By Mel - 10:45 AM on June 29, 2014  

        I would really like to see apps for Android.

      • By Hoppity - 1:02 PM on June 29, 2014  

        I echo the slight sense of puzzlement at your fixation with the minority of mobile users who don’t use Android.

      • By Dubya - 3:45 PM on June 30, 2014  

        I was at the Photoshop World in Atlanta back in March when Lightroom was announced for the iPad and us Android used were quite vocal about being snubbed. Do we need to march on the Adobe HQ with pitchfork and torches … or apps that resemble torches anyway … before we are heard?

  • By Daniel Walters - 12:18 PM on June 18, 2014  

    Looking forward to this year’s presentation

  • By Freddy Torres - 12:24 PM on June 18, 2014  

    Excited to know what’s new with CC apps ^^

  • By Tony - 3:16 PM on June 18, 2014  

    Great Stuff! I know its a longshot but is there any chance that one day we will have Cinema 4D included in CC?

  • By Ian Livesey - 3:50 PM on June 18, 2014  

    All looking very exciting.

  • By Seth - 4:37 PM on June 18, 2014  

    I think the additions are incredible. The permanent Ps + Lr @ $9.99/mo. is excellent, but I think the Ps Mix and Lr Mobile should be added as that bundle really is for photographers and would help them edit in the field without shlepping a laptop around. Also, not clear if these new apps will be available for the Surface Pro 3 (and Windows tablet/hybrids).

    Thanks for publishing the link to Adobe, Lesa: That was very helpful! Also, is your PhotoshopCC updated to include Photoshop Mix?

  • By Al Snow - 4:43 PM on June 18, 2014  

    I like the CC now and with these enhancements I love it even more. One HUGE downside is no Andriod tablet/phone apps. Need to step up to the plate on this one.

  • By Jeff Dodge - 6:39 PM on June 18, 2014  

    This is an amazing release! I’m so excited to try all of the new features with this release. Thank you Adobe!!!

  • By Jessica Sideways - 10:35 PM on June 18, 2014  

    It’s very nice and all (ESPECIALLY the live font preview in Photoshop, I’m stoked about that) but I’m curious, why can’t we have InDesign level type controls throughout the Adobe suite?

  • By Lamar - 4:14 AM on June 19, 2014  

    If I update to PS 2014 do I need to keep PS CC on my computer?

    • By David - 6:43 PM on June 21, 2014  

      Its not necessary to keep both versions, once you get CC2014 setup its okay to remove the CC version.

  • By Anne Sturm - 5:35 AM on June 19, 2014  

    I love the new functionality and am really surprised by some features and stunned by others.

    I love Adobe and will directly get on with trying EVERYTHING NEW.

    Thank you so much!

  • By Vivienne Jaffer - 5:41 AM on June 19, 2014  

    Is the CC subscription available for purchase by individual students in Australia?

  • By David Dilling - 6:22 AM on June 19, 2014  

    Nice. InDesign CC 2014 is v9.2.2, correct?

    • By Coldkick - 7:27 AM on June 20, 2014  

      No, it’s not. is InDesign CC 2014.

  • By Simon Williams - 6:41 AM on June 19, 2014  

    Where are the Android versions of Photoshop and Lightroom? Android has 44% of the mobile market and IOS ahs 10%. Also, from a photographer’s point of view Android is much better supported hardware wise.

    Love the changes on the desktop, but hate being ignored on the mobile side!

  • By Jerry - 6:59 AM on June 19, 2014  

    I am blown away by all these incredible features. Thank you Adobe!!!!!

  • By David Fox - 8:39 AM on June 19, 2014  

    Penultimate sentence doesn’t make sense.

    • By Sue Garibaldi - 7:20 PM on June 20, 2014  

      Thanks David,

      Not sure what happened there. It’s fixed.


  • By WC - 12:31 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I’m glad to hear you’ve decided to keep the Photoshop plan at $10/mo. I was worried about what I was going to do after the first year when the price went up… But at that price, the decision is easy.

  • By Texasota - 12:39 PM on June 19, 2014  

    No Android?

  • By Richard - 12:53 PM on June 19, 2014  

    The additions to Photoshop sound interesting, especially the focus mask. I will be trying that out as soon as my CC updates. If only improving my photography was as easy…

  • By Scott Falkner - 12:56 PM on June 19, 2014  

    Does Illustrator finally — finally! — work with pica values between -1p0 and 0p0? Please say yes.

  • By Spencer Goldade - 1:03 PM on June 19, 2014  

    This is great! Ink & Slide are amazing– instantly saving up to buy them–, and many of the updates are things I have been asking for. Great work! Thank you for innovating where you could have just stood still.

  • By Grey - 1:04 PM on June 19, 2014  

    “because our world is mobile”

    “Mobile” is not just “iPad/iPhone”.

    I’ll get excited about connected mobile apps when Adobe supports Android.

  • By John Steele - 1:35 PM on June 19, 2014  

    the iphone is only one smart phone. There are plenty more out there. Why have apps dedicated to the one phone?

    • By Sue Garibaldi - 7:13 PM on June 20, 2014  


      Don’t lose hope John, we haven’t ruled out other versions of our apps.


  • By Chad - 1:39 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I use a surface pro 2 as my mobile work device. i cant understand why you guys have not yet put out a general TABLET WORKSPACE for Photoshop? i love mac products but chose this tablet because its a solid work horse.

  • By Josh - 1:45 PM on June 19, 2014  

    It all looks nice. I installed it, and now I have 2 copies of everything because the 2014 versions didn’t overwrite the previous versions. It would have been nice to know that would happen prior to updating.

    • By Cathy - 1:43 AM on June 20, 2014  

      I’d like to know if I can delete the old CC programs now that I have CC 2014, without snarling up the works.

      • By Sue Garibaldi - 6:45 PM on June 20, 2014  

        Hi Cathy,

        Yes, you can uninstall the older versions. This short blog post might help:


  • By Karl - 1:50 PM on June 19, 2014  

    Nothing on AE or Pr CC?

    I’m all for the photoshop improvements but I’m wondering if the video side received any love? Not that the products aren’t godly already, its just that Adobe keeps seeming to knock this stuff outta the park.

  • By Charles Pearson - 2:08 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I now have two versions of Photoshop CC (including 2014)so do I need the previous one any longer?

    Also, I have tried one of the new features, ‘select focus area’ and the programme crashes on each occasion. Can anyone help with this?

    • By Sue Garibaldi - 7:11 PM on June 20, 2014  

      Hi Charles,

      You can uninstall the old versions. Here’s a quick blog post on the subject:


      • By Charles Pearson - 11:45 AM on June 21, 2014  

        Thanks Sue for your help


      • By Charles Pearson - 1:02 PM on June 21, 2014  


        Everytime I select focus area, a new feature, windows closes Photoshop! Everything else I have tried works ok but not this feature. Any ideas?

        • By Sue Garibaldi - 2:38 PM on June 24, 2014  

          Hi Charles,

          I ran this by our support team and they suggested resetting your Photoshop preferences if you haven’t done so already. Shift+Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Shift+Option+Command (Mac OS) immediately after you start the application.

          They also gave me links to troubleshooting documents:
          Mac OS:

          Let me know if this helps.


          • By Charles Pearson - 3:37 PM on June 24, 2014  

            Thanks Sue

            I contacted a support member last night who told me to contact NVIDIA to obtain a new graphics card. They in turn referred me to Dell who said Photoshop CC 2014 was launched with many problems and as everything else works fine on my PC there is no reason to change anything. I was pretty dissatisfied with the live chat I had as I barely understood the operator and he referred me to NVIDIA and closed the session.
            These people SHOULD realise not everyone who contacts them fully understands all the techie stuff and should communicate in a way to be understood.
            I will probably not bother with this feature now as I have spent many frustrating hours trying to resolve the problem. I was quite happy with Photoshop CC but the new version has introduced many niggling problems and seems like a Beta version to me.
            I am VERY disappointed and will probably cancel my subscription like some others and revert to just using CS6
            Rant over!!

          • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 2:16 PM on July 9, 2014  

            My guess is it’s a driver issue, not a card issue.

            Determine what video card you have and go *directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD)* and download the latest driver:

            After you have the latest driver, Try restoring your preferences:

            If doing both of those doesn’t help, select Edit>Preferences>Performance… and click [Advanced Settings…]. Set the Drawing Mode to “Basic” and restart Photoshop.

  • By Alan - 2:09 PM on June 19, 2014  

    With all the Hype around PS CC 2014 you have dropped one of the most important work flow features in Photoshop. The “Mini Bridge” The ability to access one’s photo library directly in
    in a Photoshop document. Please! Bring this feature back.

  • By Jerry Dallmann - 2:34 PM on June 19, 2014  

    Are those of us who have not partaken of the Apple kool-aid going to be denied mobile apps? We are, after all, the majority of users.

  • By Dale Cornibe - 2:37 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I have nothing against updates, especially updates over the Internet (it’s very convenient and I don’t have to have space for those bulky boxes anymore! But please, can we simply have the updates simply update the existing software, a la Android or iOS apps, where the user doesn’t have to uninstall the older one, then install the newer one, then convert existing projects to the newer format? (The user probably has to reset all the preferences too, right?) Updates should just be transparent to the user, where the user can just update the existing software, open the existing software, and keep working on existing projects without having a bump in the road and delay projects. Another example is Windows/Microsoft Update; why can’t Adobe Creative Cloud work the same way?

  • By Dave Kosiur - 3:05 PM on June 19, 2014  

    Why did Adobe release two different versions of PhotoShop CC — one as an upgrade to the old CC and a wholly new version — CC 2014? Why couldn’t Adobe merely have added the new features to the original PhotoShop CC? I thought that was the whole reasoning behind a Creative Cloud subscription?

    • By David - 7:05 PM on June 21, 2014  

      This blog post explains why there were separate versions:

  • By Marjatta Son - 4:00 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I have subscribed to Adobe creative cloud for one year on February 2014. If I download the updates of fpr example Photoshop, do I have to [ay for it extra?

    I do use only a desktop computer.

    • By Sue Garibaldi - 6:55 PM on June 20, 2014  


      The updates are part of your Creative Cloud membership; you don’t have to pay extra for them.


  • By Thomas Barthle - 4:19 PM on June 19, 2014  

    Just downloaded and this update is very frustrating! To be clear, this is not an update but a totally separate install. In fact, it keeps the old version installed, and eats up HD space. Apparently, a lot of the programs like Premiere and Photoshop use a different plugin format, HTML5. This means your plugins won’t work in the new version until those companies port them over (hence both versions stay installed). This is annoying and defeats the idea of CC. Just check the Adobe forums and see how many users are upset.

  • By Joan Morgan - 5:55 PM on June 19, 2014  

    Will PS CC be updated to PS 2014

  • By Missy - 9:18 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I was super excited about the apps until I heard they were only on iPad. I can only hope that changes in the future 🙁

  • By Russel Ray Photos - 9:37 PM on June 19, 2014  

    If only Adobe could use their technology to release updates and upgrades that don’t destroy all of the customization we have done with our own copies of Photoshop CC, including deleting all of the plugins and filters that we might have installed, not to mention keyboard shortcuts and Actions.

    After upgrading to Photoshop CC 2014, it was like starting all over, something that I could not afford to do since I make my living using Photoshop. I’ve spent a year or more getting Photoshop to work the way I want it to work for my needs and could not start over.

    Thus, I uninstalled Photoshop CC 2014, but even that didn’t get rid of all the PSCC2014 upgrades, so I had to use System Restore in Windows 7 to get rid of everything.

    So frustrating………..

  • By DaniLew - 11:42 PM on June 19, 2014  

    I’m excited by the 2014 improvements and cannot wait to give them a test drive! Thanks Adobe.

  • By Bakker - 3:14 AM on June 20, 2014  

    So now I have 2 versions of photoshop ? CC + CC 2014.
    It is highly annoying that I have to manually reinstall all my plugins again. With such a development team, can you not think of something simple as it is so trivial.

  • By Edward - 10:58 AM on June 20, 2014  

    Forgive me, but I thought the days of having more than one version of an application was a thing of the past…I was under the impression that when I opted for the CC subscriptins, the apps would continually be UPDATED IN PLACE…now I’ve got CC (32 and 64-bit versions) PLUS CC 2014 (32 and 64-bit versions)…frankly, I wouldn’t have a problem with this if files from other versions of the software titles were interchangeable…really a pain when it comes to Illustrator and InDesign files…

    I guess I’m “alone in my priciples”…from ‘that thing you do’ by the way — on this one 🙂

    Very silly procedure.

    I’ve seen a few web blogs that state the new, permanent Photographers bundle has reduced the cloud storage from 20GB to 2GB. Others have also said that the Behance features were also dropped when the program became permanent.

    Does anyone have the facts? I have been unable to determine the answer to these questions in looking at Adobe’s web pages for the bundle.

    Thanks for the reply! That’s great to hear as I’ve just installed the Photoshop CC 2014 trial to make sure it runs OK on my computer before signing up for the Photography plan. It’s great that there’s no sign-up deadline now, so there’s no rush and I can make full use of the full trial duration. 🙂


    P.s. The difference between this new Photography Plan and the previous Photography special, is there’s none of the extras like the 20GB of storage, behance etc?

  • By Mark Cowell - 7:10 AM on June 25, 2014  

    I’ve been using CS5 and decided to give CC a try. I love the content aware function. However, In CS5 I was able to integrate the NIK HDR program to provide a quick starting point for HDR adjustments. CC does not seem to be able to integrate NIK. Am I missing something? If not, is there a way to do this or is Adobe purposely not coordinating in CC?

    • By Jeffrey Tranberry - 2:44 PM on July 9, 2014  

      There’s nothing to cancel if you simply signed up for the free trial. The trial will expire and you won’t be charged.

  • By Edward Feldman - 8:31 AM on June 26, 2014  

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE… I depended on Adobe Photoshop in my work… BRING BACK THE OIL PAINT FILTER… No other paint filter plug-in has the quality and uniqueness of the Adobe paint oil paint filter tool. I use it every day without exaggeration. it’s financially important to me and many hundreds of thousand others. One of its unique features wasn’t that it was easy-to-use but it look so real. Please choose to put it back in not because it’s easy, but because it’s difficult for anyone else to reproduce what you’ve done. This filter was so unique that it stood out on his own. Take a look at my website and you’ll see just how important it was to my work. Thank you for listening. Please to more than just listen, PLEASE bring it back thank you.

  • By Barry Heil - 11:19 AM on June 26, 2014  

    I too am confused. Was I suppose to uninstall something. I’m not sure what version I should be using? IDCC 32, IDCC 64, IDCC 2014. Reading above, did CC install two version of 2014?? because I only see one in the 64bit ditectory?

  • By SC Abbot - 11:46 AM on June 30, 2014  

    Once I moved to CC, I assumed that I’d never need to deal with multiple copies of the same software on my machine… lo and behold, I make the last update and suddenly I have “CC” and “CC 2014” versions of everything! Now I’m paranoid: if I delete the “CC” version, will I later discover that I can’t save down, or something similar?

    I realize that I face the same questions each time I update regardless, but this “2014” version installing itself separately makes me think that even Adobe wants to hedge their bets on this one… 🙁

    Will CC function on a computer not connected to the internet full time? In other words is it a stand alone piece of software or does it require being tied to the net?
