What’s the Difference: New Adobe CC 2015 vs. CS6, CS5, CS4, CS3?

June 18th, 2015 45 comments

What Are the Differences Between Adobe CC 2015 vs. CS6 and Other Versions — What's New?

One of the most common upgrade questions we see out there is asking what’s new, what’s different, what’s better, what’s changed between Adobe’s just-launched CC 2015 release and the previous CC 2014, CC 2013, or 2012’s Creative Suite 6 – or even the older CS5, CS4, CS3?  Or more fundamentally, what are the key new features in CC 2015 versus prior versions?

Now that the new CC 2015 mile­stone release is out world­wide, everyone is entitled to either a free upgrade or a free 30-day trial (possibly up to 60 days). Ongoing access to these tools requires a Creative Cloud mem­ber­ship (either for one app or for all of them), with discounts available for education custom­ers. Adobe says that if you look at all of the changes since CS6 to the current CC 2015 release, there have been well over 1,000 significant updates – meaning new and improved features, added capabil­ities, and perfor­mance improve­ments – to the key creative applications.

Adobe CC 2015 Direct Download Links: Creative Cloud 2015 Release

June 16th, 2015 206 comments

Download the New 2015 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy)

The new Adobe CC 2015 release was announced earlier today, including 15 upgraded desktop applications with new features across the board plus some big performance boosts… And there’s no wait: the CC 2015 software is available immediately for worldwide download via the CC Desktop App… This means everyone gets either a free upgrade or a free trial – but some folks want or need to access the new tools directly without using Adobe’s download/app manager.

So below we’ve curated a complete set of Adobe CC 2015 direct download links for all the new products on Windows and Mac OS, for instant access (plus the ability to use your own download manager) if you have any difficulty with what Adobe normally employs and want to get the free trials without it… These can also come in quite handy if you want offline CC 2015 installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash/thumb drive, burn to DVD, etc).

The New Adobe CC 2015 Release Is Here – What You Need to Know

June 16th, 2015 14 comments

Download the New 2015 Release of Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy) See What's New

BREAKING NEWS (Berlin) — Adobe has just announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2015 release, with hundreds of new features and enhancements across their creative product line focusing on workflow, performance, connectivity, and some of that Adobe magic…  Creative Cloud 2015 is the next major release following the CC 2014 and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012. So thinking in the old terms, this would roughly be equivalent to CS9 (and more).

The 15 desktop tools updated today are Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Dreamweaver, Flash Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects (including the highly-anticipated Character Animator), Audition, Prelude, Speedgrade, Media Encoder, Muse, and Edge Animate. All current Creative Cloud members will receive an automatic upgrade to the 2015 Release, and all of the new free trial downloads are also now live online. As before, the new tools and services are available via afford­able annual or monthly memberships. Adobe continues to grow Creative Cloud in a big way, now with over 4 million paid customers already having signed up.

How to Extend Adobe Free Trials to 60 Days Long, Instead of 30 Days

May 20th, 2015 27 comments

How to Download and Start an Adobe Software Free Trial

How long are the free trials for Adobe software? Most people would say 30 days – but practically speak­ing, it’s actually twice that, at 60 days.  Here’s why, and how you can do it…

After downloading and installing Adobe’s free trial software – whether it’s the latest major release CC 2014 (have you tried it yet?), CS6, Acrobat, Captivate, or Lightroom – your official free trial will begin for 30 calendar days from the date you first run the application (like Photoshop) on your computer.

Once you reach the end of that month – if you haven’t already purchased the product – then that free trial period will end and all the files you created will still be yours, but the software itself will no longer start on your system. And redownloading or reinstalling it won’t give you a new free trial.

May 29th, 2015 10 comments

We originally ran the story below in October after a new Dehaze/Defog capability was sneak-peeked at Adobe MAX… It was our favorite of the show! Now, we have some great news: Adobe worldwide evangelist Terry White just confirmed this will actually be a real feature coming soon in the new CC 2015 release of creative tools. Here’s his video demo:

Dehaze will in fact be included in both Lightroom CC 2015 and Photoshop CC 2015 as part of Adobe Camera Raw. All complete Creative Cloud members as well as Photography Plan subscribers will automatically receive this update at no extra cost as soon as the new version is available.

And it’s now confirmed! The official release date for CC 2015 will be on June 16th.

What’s the Difference Between Lightroom 6/CC vs. 5 – What’s New?

April 23rd, 2015 17 comments

Compare Versions: What Are the Differences Between Lightroom 6/CC vs. LR5?

The long-awaited Adobe Lightroom 6/CC began shipping this week, and has got some folks pretty excited about the new features and capabilities… There’s a long list of them given further below, but some of the highlights include much improved performance, facial recognition, photo merge for both HDR and panorama, advanced video slideshows, improved web galleries, new Pet Eye tool, touch-enabled PC support, plus GPU acceleration and native 64-bit architecture on Windows and Mac.

One big change is the naming difference and what you get with the two options (Lightroom 6 vs. Lightroom CC). You can still buy a standalone perpetual version as before (either full or upgrade from an older release) – the product is then called Lightroom 6 and it will still receive bug fixes and new camera/lens additions, but will not get ongoing new feature updates and does not have access to online LR features and apps such as Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom web.
