Adobe has really been sweetening the pot lately for you to try out their massive Stock photo collection… These are high-quality, curated images, illustrations, vectors, graphics, templates, photos, and more from a vast collection of over 100 million assets to choose from. After acquiring Fotolia in 2015, Adobe rolled out a one-month-free offer which was nice, but it required paying for your first month up front (which would later be refunded if you canceled).
Here’s a fantastic new resource that you should not miss – and even bookmark/share… It’s a complete introductory-level class on how to best use Photoshop from the excellent training team at Adobe KnowHow – a course worth hundreds of dollars, but now completely FREE with no catch. It includes 5½ hours of high-quality instruction broken out into 16 chapters with 58 video tutorials (in HD or SD), covering everything you need to know to really get going with Adobe Photoshop – the world’s leading graphics and photo editing application – at no cost!

Last month, Adobe shipped the all-new CC 2018 set of tools and services – a milestone marking the sixth major release of the CC product line, which replaced CS6 from 2012. This latest CC version contains thousands of new features and advancements compared to CS6 (across all creative applications), and it is available only via Creative Cloud membership – a community which now surpasses 12 million paid subscribers.
Adobe CC 2018 is also known as the Creative Cloud 2018 Release… And that is exactly what we’re giving away for free below, and this offer is open to everyone worldwide.
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. The CC 2018 software is available immediately for worldwide download via the Creative Cloud 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.
Adobe is having a worldwide sale with money-saving deals lined up through Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017 (and beyond), and we’ve got the complete guide below… Although there are fewer offers than previous years, the new specials still match the same level of discount off the regular prices as past Black Fridays.

No previous software ownership or other qualifications are necessary to receive this price reduction.
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.

With the fast-growing adoption of Adobe’s Creative Cloud and the recent release of the all-new CC 2018 versions of creative applications, some readers are telling us they’re not sure if they need all the tools that are included in the complete Creative Cloud offering, or aren’t ready or able to join for US$50 a month…
The complete (or All Apps) Creative Cloud membership gives you the latest-and-greatest versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Muse, Animate (Flash Pro), XD, Dimension, Premiere, After Effects, Audition, and others – together in a well-integrated suite with ongoing product upgrades included as soon as they’re available.
