Another year, another highly exciting Adobe Creative Cloud update. Ever since Adobe launched Creative Cloud, they’ve become a service with monthly subscription and a desire to have at least one major update per year. For 2015, the service has primarily set out to help creatives with stock photos, and to make designing a lot easier for smartphone and tablet users.
David Wadhwani, Adobe senior vice president, gave a statement saying that “The 2015 release of Creative Cloud is packed with innovation. Our CreativeSync technology deepens the connections between desktop apps and mobile apps on iOS and Android; and major updates to Creative Cloud’s infrastructure and administrative capabilities make this an essential upgrade for enterprise customers”.
Searching for stock photos is a nuisance for most designers. Hoyrs after hours are spent searching ShutterStock and Fotolia in hope of find that perfect image that you can fit into your art. More often than not the photos are either taken at an angle you don’t need or they’re much too similar to a hundred other photos that people working on similar projects have already used.
Adobe in now offering its own stock photo library and opening up your options. Adobe Stock si already integrated with Creative Cloud so things should go a lot faster once you’ve found an image that you like, and as an added bonus you will also save 40 percent (40%) on a photo purchase if you have a Creative Cloud subscription.
It will give you 40 million photos, vector graphics and illustrations to choose from, but it does cost extra. You can either pay $10 per image or $30 per month for a set of 10 images. If you’re not a Creative Cloud user, you will pay $50 per month for a set of 10 images.
CreativeSync is another major new update. It allows users to switch seamlessly between their desktop and their mobile devices. The app carries files, fonts, settings and anything else you can thing of from one device to another, allowing user to start a project at home, then leave the house and continue to work on it while ridding the bus. It is sure to save many creatives from forgetting their ideas due to not being able to work on a project.
Other welcomed updates include faster speeds, multiple art boards for Photoshop (Illustrator style), file recovery for Illustrator, a Photoshop and Lighroom option for removing haze from photos, and several improvements on tools previously found in each program.
