(Los Angeles, California--May 6, 2013) Today at Adobe MAX, The Creativity Conference, in Los Angeles, Adobe made a significant announcement that it has accelerated its shift to the cloud with a major update to Adobe Creative Cloud, the company’s flagship offering for creative professionals. Available in June, Creative Cloud reimagines the creative process through a feature-packed set of desktop applications and sophisticated cross-device collaboration and publishing capabilities.
Adobe also announced that the company will focus all of its creative software development efforts on its Creative Cloud offering moving forward. Adobe’s desktop tools, previously known as Creative Suite (CS), are now branded CC to reflect that they are an integral part of Creative Cloud and have been reinvented to support a more intuitive, connected way of creating. While Creative Suite 6 products will continue to be supported and available for purchase, the company has no plans for future releases of Creative Suite or other CS products. This update to Creative Cloud includes the next generation of Adobe desktop applications -- including Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Dreamweaver CC and Premiere Pro CC.
The Creative Cloud enables the new Adobe CC tools to be much more collaborative and readily available. Settings, styles, fonts, colors, and assets are now synced and available across all desktops and mobile devices and allow users to be connected to the resources and people they need.
At MAX we’re unveiling additional features to our enhanced toolset that we weren’t able to sneak at NAB:
- With Creative Cloud membership, users now have the new Sync Settings feature in Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe After Effects CC, which enables them to synchronize preferences, including keyboard shortcuts and workspaces, across multiple computers.
- Creative Cloud membership now includes integration Behance so members can upload their portfolios and share their ideas and projects with one of the largest online creative communities
- Creative Cloud members have access to a rich library of tutorials from both Adobe and industry-leading partners to help customers learn new tools and techniques fast.
