Compare Adobe CC (CS7) vs. CS6 – What Are the New Features?
[UPDATE (May 6th) – The next release is announced! Learn more about new Adobe CC.]
Normally in the weeks before a new version of Creative Suite comes out, we don’t have a very concrete idea of what will be in it…
However this year – thanks to the early upgrades already out for Creative Cloud members, some telling blog posts, several “first look” videos, and a “major reveal” at the recent NAB show – we have already a pretty good picture of some of the major new features that CS7 (let’s call it) will include. Adobe says all of the new products will be included in the Creative Cloud as soon as they’re out.
Here below we’ve compiled some of the key information on what’s new and expected in the upcoming release, and will keep this list up-to-date as we move forward…
What’s New in CS7 vs. CS6?
So here’s a quick run-through of some of the top new features we expect for the top applications (click the product names for more details):
— Illustrator: Package Files and “Unembed” Images functions, Links Panel enhancements.
— Audition: Sound Remover, Preview Editor, Native 64-Bit Performance, Favorites Panel.
— More to come – we will keep this list updated going forward…
If you’ve been thinking about going with the Cloud, Adobe says:
The new version’s release date has not been announced, but there is a great way to get yourself to the front of the line. If you join Creative Cloud now, you will immediately receive the entire stable of currently shipping CS6 applications AND you will automatically receive the new versions of all your favorite Adobe applications as soon as they are available.”
