A few days ago, Adobe discontinued older versions of some Creative Cloud apps. The company is now sending emails to its customers warning them of potential legal actions. That is, if you continue using these apps – you risk getting sued for infringement by third parties.
Adobe has announced today a groundbreaking addition to After Effects: content-aware fill for video. The feature is powered by Adobe Sensei, the company’s AI platform which helps to remove various visual elements automatically. This feature has been available in Photoshop, and it makes it much easier for photographers to remove unwanted objects from images. But now, the same feature is coming to After Effects, making life easier for video editors, too.
If you still run an older version of Windows or MacOS and use Adobe CC programs, we have some bad news. Adobe has announced that the next major Creative Cloud update will no longer support older versions of operating systems, such as Windows 7, 8 and even some versions of Windows 10.
Not long ago, Adobe issued a sneak peek video of their new, curvy Pen Tool. Starting from today, the latest Photoshop CC update will have the new Curvature Pen Tool included. This should make the selections easier than ever before, and I guess it also makes it easier for beginners to use the tool. Along with the Curvature Pen Tool, Adobe has introduced some other improvements, too. So, let’s take a deeper look.
So, the accidental leak from Adobe a couple of months ago over “Nimbus” is now here. And it seems that rather than being a cloud companion to Lightroom, it is a Lightroom replacement. Adobe have today announced that Lightroom CC is now an entirely cloud based application. The desktop based Lightroom that we’ve come to know and love (or loath) is now “Lightroom Classic”.
Lightroom’s been around for over a decade now. With the increasing mobile based world around us, shifting the whole thing over to the cloud seems to make a lot of sense, although you’ll have to pony up a bit more cash if you want the online storage to be able to fully utilise it.
When Adobe switched to subscription-only plan, it made many users angry. However, there are some advantages to this plan, according to photographer Justin Odisho. He shares some of the greatest benefits of paying a monthly subscription for your Adobe apps. One of them is certainly the cost, but according to Justin – there’s more than just the larger affordability.
Because of the “fluctuations in foreign exchange rates”, Adobe has announced the increase in fees for Creative Cloud subscribers. For those subscribing monthly, the price increase will take effect from March 6, 2017. Those who pay the yearly subscription will pay the new price when they renew the plan.
Adobe has announced that their Creative Cloud suite of apps is now available for Chromebooks. What they did was modify their existing Android apps, so they are now compatible with selected Chromebooks. Considering these devices are mainly used in schools, this could be a step forward in education, and the best thing is – these apps will be available free of charge for students and teachers.
The 2015 release of Adobe Creative Cloud brought many new features, and for that we were happy. Now we (or, at least I) am happy once again.
Adobe has just rolled out the first official update to Premiere Pro CC 2015. Along with fixes to audio and workflow problems, the new update promises to correct performance and stability issues. That is what makes me happy.
Back when Adobe acquired Fotolia I think most creative professionals were really excited to see what Adobe had in mind for the stock industry.
I mean, a player as big as Adobe had the power to totally re-imagine the sale of stock photography, video and illustration for the benefit of their corporate bottom line and their loyal customer base (after all, creative professionals are the reason Adobe exists in the first place).
But, with todays update to Adobe Creative Cloud, instead we get Adobe Stock – in my opinion, nothing more than a re-branded microstock blood sucking content leach and a slap in the face to creative professionals everywhere.
