Today marks the start of Adobe MAX – Adobe’s annual conference. Naturally, Adobe has lots of news to share. First up:Creative Profile: Your New Creative Identity in Creative Cloud.
While simple in concept, this Creative Cloud release includes a new Creative Profile that connects creatives to our work, the assets we use to create, and the communities that matter to us – no matter where they are. Using this new service you can access your files, photos, colors, brushes, shapes, fonts, textstyles, graphics – and any other asset. Always at our fingertips, the new Creative Profile moves with your from app-to-app and device-to-device, so assets automatically appear when they need them, in the right context.
Creative Cloud Libraries
Adobe’s announcement of the all new Creative Cloud Libraries feature allows you to create asset libraries in your favorite apps. Create images, colors, text styles, and more in Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator CC, and mobile apps like Shape CC, and then easily access them across other desktop and mobile apps for a seamless creative workflow. Creative Cloud Libraries connects to your Creative Profile, putting the creative assets you care about at your fingertips.
In addition to the powerful collaboration and file sync features, Adobe also provides convenient browser access to Adobe Creative Cloud Libraries. You can also synchronize your mobile creations to Creative Cloud from mobile apps like Illustrator Draw, Illustrator Line, Photoshop Mix, and Photoshop Sketch. Then, simply download and use your creations with your favorite Creative Cloud desktop app.
Wait! What’s Draw, Line, Mix, and Sketch?
They are the tip of the iceburg! Meet the all new Adobe family of mobile apps.
In June, Adobe brought the power of Adobe Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC to devices with a complementary set of imaging and illustration mobile apps. Not only do these apps break down the silos between desktop and mobile, but they’re fun and easy to use, and provide countless new ways to express your creativity. Today Adobe debuted more new apps, as well as updates to all of the apps we introduced in June. Check it out:
Illustrator Draw—An all-new app that reinvents the best of Adobe Ideas, letting you work with familiar tools and features in a modern, streamlined interface. Better syncing makes it easier to send drawings to Illustrator CC for refinement.
Illustrator Line—A major update to the app we first shipped in June; Line sketches can now be sent to Illustrator CC, enabling you to edit original vector paths, and more.
Photoshop Mix—Now available for both iPhone and iPad, it includes amazing new technology with a cut-out option that automatically creates a selection for the primary element in an image.
Photoshop Sketch—Draw with new expressive brushes as well as custom brushes, and send sketch artwork to Photoshop as a PSD file, opening the door to deeper integration between Sketch and Photoshop CC.
Lightroom Mobile—Builds on the amazing image management and editing capabilities… view comments and favorites in Lightroom mobile that clients, friends, or family leave on the photos you’ve shared online in Lightroom on the web.
Adobe Premiere Clip—Our first video-editing app brings the power of Adobe Premiere Pro CC to mobile. It works on iPhone and iPad and integrates with Premiere Pro CC on the desktop for professional editing and finishing.
And, an all new family of mobile apps for capturing inspiration on the go and dropping them directly into your creative workflow:
Adobe Color CC (formerly Adobe Kuler)—Create color themes on your iPhone from the photos that inspired them.
Adobe Brush CC—Transform images on your iPhone and iPad into unique brushes for Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC or Photoshop Sketch.
Adobe Shape CC—Turn shapes and objects from high-contrast photos on your iPhone into editable vectors for use in Illustrator CC and Illustrator Draw.
And that’s a wrap. Lot’s of new toys…I mean tools, announced today at Adobe MAX. Check them out and start creating!
