Remember Adobe’s recently announced web-based version of Photoshop? It’s finally available online and its name is Creative Cloud Express. It’s designed for experienced photographers and designers, but also those who’ve never used Adobe editing tools before. It’s a crossover between Adobe Spark and Photoshop Express, but it strangely reminds me of Canva, too.
In addition to making Photoshop and Illustrator available on the web, Adobe has introduced a bunch of other new features to its apps. The trend of relying on artificial intelligence continues, so Photoshop is now getting even more advanced Object Selection, new neural filters, artificial depth blur, and plenty more. So without further ado, let’s right into it.
The coronavirus outbreak has had schools all over the world closed down, moving classes to online platforms whenever possible. Adobe has decided to offer free at-home access to its Creative Cloud programs to all students and educators who are now forced to teach and learn from home.
Earlier this month, Adobe deactivated all Venezuelan Creative Cloud accounts due to the US sanctions. But here’s some good news for all creatives in Venezuela: your Adobe subscription is active again. After discussions with the US government, Adobe has been granted a license to provide all of its Digital Media products and services in Venezuela despite the sanctions.
Adobe was recently hit with a massive data breach, exposing nearly 7.5 million Creative Clouds accounts to the public. Reportedly, a database containing sensitive user info was easily accessible to anyone through a web browser.
The U.S. Government has blocked almost all transactions and services between U.S. companies, entities, and individuals in Venezuela. As a result, all Adobe Creative Clouds accounts in this country have been deactivated. What’s more – it seems that the affected users won’t get a refund, either.
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.
