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.

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.
