Today, Adobe released its Creative Cloud update across all its applications. 15 Creative Cloud applications have been updated, including Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Lightroom CC, and more. the second major announcement is the release of some of the Creative Cloud Mobile Apps for Android, namely Shape CC, Color CC, Brush CC and Photoshop Mix. Adobe aslo launched its brand new Stock images service, Adobe Stock.

There are too many software updates across all Adobe products to describe them all here, so I will simply give a brief overview of the main innovations:

Creative Cloud Graphic Design Apps Main Improvements

Adobe improved the performance of Indesign and Illustrator, which are 10 times faster and 10 times more precise than CS6. You can now create custom graphs and infographics directly inside Illustrator, and with InDesign you can easily publish document online in a single click. Linked Assets in Creative cloud Libraries allows users to edit once and update an asset used in InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop everywhere.

Features dedicated to Web Design.

One of the main new features in Photoshop CC is the ability to design multiple artboards in a single document (see video). DreamWeaver is now simpler to use to create responsive websites.

Creative Cloud Mobile and New  Android Apps Launch

Adobe introduced Creative Cloud was introduced in 2012 and iOS companion apps were a great part of the product line to work with Adobe Desktop Tools. Today, the company released Brush CC, Shape CC, Color CC and Photoshop Mix on Android. A number of the iOS apps for iPhone and iPad have been updated as well, including Adobe Comp CC, Photoshop Mix, Photoshop Sketch, Illustrator Draw, Brush CC, Shape CC and Color CC.

Additionally, Adobe created a new mobile app Hue CC for capturing  lighting and color schemes by using an iPhone camera and then applying these light and color moods into a Premiere Pro CC or After Effects CC project.

Creative Cloud Graphic Video and Photography Apps Main Improvements

Adobe Premiere Pro CC got a number of enhancements, including simplified color workflows, and automated smoothing of jump cuts between sound bytes. In After effect you can easily animate 2D characters with your webcam.

The main improvement made to Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC is the removal of haze from Photos, see the Adobe Premiere DeHaze video demo

Adobe Stock Visual Content Service launched with Creative Cloud integration

The launch of a stock images service is a logical and natural product line expansion for Adobe, knowing that the majority of its customer-base are creatives that use stock photos or illustrations on a daily basis. What sets Adobe Stock from its competition is the integration with the company’s creative tools.

Users can launch Adobe Stock directly within CC desktop software, add watermarked images to Creative Cloud Libraries and then access and work with images across multiple desktop and mobile applications. They can also directly purchase the images from the CC desktop software application. Additionally, it is possible to edit a watermarked image in an application like Photoshop CC and, then, these edits are automatically applied to the purchased full-resolution image.
