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.
A recent post on Reddit has highlighted a potential issue for users of Adobe’s perpetual license version of Lightroom 5. Basically, if you bought the digital-only version and don’t have a physical CD from which to install (or you do but you’re using a computer that no longer possesses an optical drive), you may not be able to easily download the installation files again if you ever need to reinstall it on your computer.
Previously, you could download older versions of the software for which you had a valid license and the Reddit user pdaphone says that when they logged in, they could see their serial number, but was unable to download the software through the Adobe interface. Fortunately, it seems like there is a solution. At least for now.
Adobe has just published their Black Friday deals and not only are they running some very attractive offers but they’re starting the sale early. As of today, you can get 40% off an Adobe Creative Cloud membership plan containing the entire CC suite of applications for individuals, almost 40% for businesses and almost 70% if you’re a student or teacher.
There is, naturally, a caveat. This cost is only good for a year. You can’t pre-pay for a decade at the reduced price. But, you’ll be locked into this price for the next 12 months and that’s all you’ll pay. When it comes time to renew, it’ll come back up to regular price – unless Adobe runs a similar deal in 2022 and you can get a reduced rate again next year.
Photoshop has had some AI-powered filters for a while now. Adobe announced a couple of new ones recently, some incredibly useful and the others… well, maybe not so much. The latter include Landscape Mixer, a tool that lets you combine your landscape photo with another in a single click. Has Adobe gone too far with this? Colin Smith of PhotoshopCAFE demonstrates the tool in his latest video, so let’s see how it performs and is it any good at all.
While we’re already playing with fun new stuff in Photoshop, Adobe also offers a sneak peek at the stuff we’re to see in the future. One of them is called Project In-Between and it lets you make something new out of a few similar photos before you choose the keeper. With a click of a button, Adobe’s new tool turns them into animation and gives them a new life.
Selling your work as non-fungible tokens or NTFs is one of the ways to make money from your photos (even memes). Many artists have jumped on the bandwagon, and you can now do it if you have a Behance account. Adobe has just made it possible to sell your work as NFT right there on the platform, and there are some other new ways of making money on Behance, too.
Adobe has announced that from next week, Adobe is adding Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe Photoshop Express apps into the Creative Cloud Photography plan at no extra cost. Photoshop Express is a simple cut-down image editing app for iOS and Android devices. Premiere Rush is a basic video editing application available for both mobile and desktop operating systems.
Creating tiny planets has become really popular ever since consumer 360° cameras started becoming a thing about five or six years ago. So popular that there’s even native support in apps for cameras like those from Insta360 to create them. But what if you want to do something a bit higher resolution, or with higher dynamic range and a bit more control than a 360° camera can offer?
Well, in this tutorial from Paul Trani at the Adobe Photoshop YouTube channel, you’ll learn how to create them within Photoshop using just a standard panoramic image shot with nothing but your regular DSLR or mirrorless camera.
