Last month, Adobe unveiled the all-new CC 2018 Release, which they say is the biggest product launch since Adobe first introduced Creative Cloud over five years ago. And from what we’ve seen, it looks to be true. There are major updates across the entire suite of tools and services, including entirely new CC desktop tools as well as significant new features and performance improvements to existing applications, and even some surprises.

As always, all upgrades to your CC apps are included are part of your Creative Cloud membership at no additional cost.

What’s the Difference Between Adobe CC for Teams vs. Individuals?

November 13th, 2017 39 comments

The Differences Between Different Types of Creative Cloud Membership: CC for Teams vs. Individuals

What are the differences between the types of Creative Cloud membership? This is a question we get a lot, so here’s a handy comparison guide on the major differences between Creative Cloud for Teams vs. CC for Individuals. In another article we already covered the all the differences between Creative Cloud Student & Teacher vs. regular editions.

Creative Cloud for Teams is Adobe’s volume licensing solution for businesses, studios, design shops, agencies, companies, offices, schools, and other organizations. It includes everything that CC for Individuals does, but gives you substantially more features and capabilities for managing and working with different users. It’s meant for groups (such as small to midsize businesses and departments) with multiple seats using the products at the same time. For large businesses, Adobe recommends Creative Cloud for Enterprise.

A fast way to get a sense of the biggest differences is to check out Adobe’s CC Plans-at-a-Glance comparison page for business – click to open for more details:

What’s the Difference Between Adobe CC 2018 vs. Older Versions?

October 30th, 2017 2 comments

What Are the Differences Between Adobe CC 2018 vs. Older 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 2018 release and the previous CC 2017, CC 2015.5, CC 2015, CC 2014, CC 2013, or 2012’s Creative Suite 6?  Or more fundamentally, what are the key new features and advancements in CC 2018 versus prior versions?

Now that the new CC 2018 mile­stone release is shipping world­wide, everyone is entitled to either a free upgrade or a new free trial for 7 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 2018 release, there have been thousands of significant updates – meaning new and enhanced features, added capabil­ities, and perfor­mance boosts – to the key creative applications.

Free 228-Page eBook! Get New Edition of “Adobe CC Design Basics”

October 10th, 2017 7 comments

Hard to believe, but Adobe recently surpassed over 10 million paid members for Creative Cloud. So we get this question all the time from readers, asking us, “What’s a good book to get started with Creative Cloud?” While there are a lot of great CC books for sale on Amazon, why not begin with an excellent title that’s available to everyone for free?

Get the New "Adobe CC Design Basics" Book Free – Download Now! (Look Under 'Teaching Material Assets')

Over the years, we’ve compiled a collection of over 30 free books that you can download and use for learning all of Adobe’s different creative tools… But there’s one volume that always stands out as a favorite – and even better, it has just been republished in a brand new expanded edition for the CC 2017 tools.

So if you’re just getting going with (or would like a solid primer covering) the core Creative Cloud design tools, then what better than a step-by-step guide that will teach you the essentials of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Muse from the ground up?

So here it is: the very helpful “Adobe CC Design Basics” you can download that will teach you all of this for free, courtesy of author Professor Thomas Payne… The way the book does this is by intro­ducing and explain­ing the tools in a logical way that builds upon what is previ­ously learned. These applica­tions present a vast array of buttons and gadgets that can be over­whelming to the new user. This book makes sense of it all, not showing how every­thing works, but instead giving a found­ation and a path to learn about all those controls and what they can do for you.

[UPDATE – Also see our new Holiday CC 2018 Giveaway!]

Last fall at the annual MAX conference, Adobe launched the current version of Creative Cloud, CC 2017… This major release was announced, demoed, and shipped all on day one of the show.

This year, MAX is happening next month, from October 18-20. It doesn’t seem unreasonable to presume that the next major version of Creative Cloud – CC 2018 – could well be released in the same fashion and timeframe. (For example, see the Photoshop CC “Sneak Peek” video below.)
