Adobe has just made public some pretty large updates to their popular Creative Cloud. (According to the folks I spoke with at Adobe, they are now seeing more than 200,000 paid subscribers to this service. And that’s the numbers from last quarter. Not bad.) At this morning’s event, the team at Adobe made public the latest updates that you should know about.
Rather than get you bogged down in the nitty-gritty, I’ve boiled it all down into some easy-to-digest bits.
New Photoshop Features
Adobe Photoshop CS6 will now support Retina Display (think MacBook Pro Retina Display). It also sees a dozen new features that are available as of the publishing of this post. Support for these features is available to both Creative Cloud and those who bought the software without Creative Cloud.
Adobe Muse Goes Mobile
The popular software Adobe Muse that lets you build your own website with just drag-and-drop interface now supports the building of mobile interfaces. Great news for teachers and classrooms who want to have a custom-built site without knowing any code!
Creative Cloud Connection
It’s desktop sync for your Creative Cloud account. It basically lets you have a folder on your desktop which you use to sync to the cloud. Just like Dropbox and other cloud storage tools. But with CCC, your stuff is all visible in Adobe tools like Photoshop.
Exclusive Online Training Videos
If you’re a paid member of Creative Cloud, you can view some videos made by third-party providers that helps you understand how to actually use Adobe’s software. Great news for classrooms again here as this software is not the easiest to master. Using some professional-grade videos will help out!
Creative Cloud For Teams
As of today, Adobe is offering Creative Cloud for teams. This is great news for classrooms looking to use some of the ‘premium’ Adobe software. In other words, Creative Cloud for groups could be great for graphic design and art classrooms. You get 100GB of storage per person (rather than the standard 20GB per person on the individual plan). Each member of the team also gets free expert troubleshooting.
