[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – Watch 235 hours of new training & tutorials from MAX 2016!]

Did you make it to MAX this year? Adobe’s Creativity Conference broke all records with 7,000 attendees coming together in Los Angeles earlier this month, up from 5,000 just a couple years ago… And that was despite an increase in the cost of a full conference pass to US$1,595.

For the price of that ticket, participants enjoyed major new product launches, inspirational key­notes from creative luminaries, hundreds of enriching training sessions, plentiful opportunities for networking with colleagues, access to the latest cool technology on the pavilion floor, meeting the Adobe product teams in person, the highly-anticipated “Sneak Peek” demos of jaw-dropping new features under development, and of course the famous MAX Bash party. And this year, all attendees also received a free year of Adobe Stock as well as a new FUJIFILM X-T10 camera.

Free New 81-Page Book! Download Adobe Lightroom Tutorial Guide

August 25th, 2015 39 comments

With the continuing popularity of Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography Plan where anybody can get both Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC for just 10 bucks a month, we’ve had some readers asking us the best ways to learn these two top imaging tools…

Download the Free Lightroom 5/6/CC eBook!

We always mention about the free video tutorials on Adobe TV, as well as the super­lative, compre­hensive courses offered on Lynda.com – but we can also recom­mend two new terrifi­cally helpful ebooks that you can work through step-by-step at your own pace. And fortu­nately, both books are completely free.

The first is the Adobe CC/CS6 Design Basics book that we’ve featured before on this site, which is 200+ pages taking you through the core essentials of Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and InDesign CC.

The second book is Victoria Bampton’s excellent Lightroom Quick Start Guide, just out in a new 81-page edition which tells you every­thing you need to know to get going with Lightroom from the ground up.

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

June 18th, 2015 85 comments

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

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – The all-new Adobe CC 2017 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to CS6, CS5, CS4 & CS3.]

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.

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

June 16th, 2015 26 comments

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

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – The all-new Adobe CC 2017 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to CS6, CS5, CS4 & CS3.]

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 9 million paid customers already having signed up.

Adobe CC 2015 Direct Download Links: Creative Cloud 2015 Release

June 16th, 2015 983 comments

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

[UPDATE (Nov. 2016) – These still work to download the original CC 2015 installers. If you’re looking for direct links to the newest CC 2017 versions, then see this post.]

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 tools or trials without it… These can also come in handy if you want offline standalone CC 2015 installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash/thumb drive, burn to DVD, etc).

Update: Adobe Confirms New Dehaze/Defog Tool Coming in CC 2015

May 29th, 2015 15 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. Note that Dehaze is not included in Lightroom 6.

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