As its subscription-based Creative Cloud snares a vast new crowd of publishers and designers – many of them working with tablets and smartphones – design software company Adobe has unveiled no fewer than 14 new versions of its “Creative Cloud” (CC) desktop applications.
They lude new CC versions of Photoshop Illustrator Dreamweaver and Premiere Pro as well as four new mobile apps updates to Creative Cloud services and new offerings for enterprise education and photography customers.
Adobe said it now has 2.3 million Creative Cloud subscriptions far exceeding original projections when it was unveiled two yearso.
In Australia Paul Robson – the recently promoted and Sydney-based president of Adobe Asia Pacific – said 98 percent of Adobe users were now using the CC subscription service which sees most paying a monthly fee.
A major part of the new release are the mobile apps which Adobe claims can turn tablets into “indispensable creative tools”.
Three new mobile apps for iPad – Adobe Sketch Line and Photoshop Mix – are said to be professional-grade quality but easy enough for anyone to use while there’s also an update for Adobe Voice a recently launched animated video app for storytelling.
