But accomplishing this feat for still images isn’t the only cool deblurring application Adobe has been working on lately… Adobe researcher Jue Wang has published a paper on an innova­tive new technique to deblur videos as well – which could be huge consid­ering how much handheld video footage is out there now, and growing every day.

All Adobe CC Free Upgrades Included Since Initial Launch in June 2013

When comparing Creative Cloud to the older Creative Suite model, one of the promises of CC is an ongoing stream of product updates that comes included with every membership.

CC Renewals Beating Expectations and Exceed 80%, Adobe Reveals

February 25th, 2014 2 comments

Available Plans to Join/Renew Adobe Creative Cloud Membership

Charting strong growth since its initial release and receiving near-five-star ratings from customers, Adobe’s new all-in-one Creative Cloud offering has also been benefiting from high renewal rates from current and returning customers, the company divulged during a recent business presentation

This is the first time that Adobe has publicly disclosed this information.  In response to the audience question, “What statistics can you share with us on Creative Cloud renewal trends?” CFO Mark Garrett said:

So back in 2011 when we announced this transition, we had modeled 80% retention – which we thought was conservative – and that’s planning out to be true, meaning our retention is better than 80%. We haven’t disclosed exact numbers yet, but the reten­tion is well within the constraints of the model that we set and the guidance that we set. So we’re really pleased with that.
