Sneak Peeks! Photoshop 3D Sculpting, VR Painting + Voice Assistant

January 12th, 2017 1 comment 3 Shares

The Adobe Research team is exploring what Photoshop would be like with a 3D canvas instead of 2D… With the Interactive Sculpting project shown the video above, instead of drawing and manipu­lating pixels, the tool operates on three-dimensional voxels. An artist uses all the familiar tools from Photoshop like brushes, layers, and filters to sculpt 3D objects. It also showcases some innovative tablet interaction model that uses simultaneous touch and pen input: the user rotates objects with one hand while sculpting with a pen at the same time.

Here is an excerpt from Adobe’s official statement about the pricing adjustment in these geographies:

What’s the Difference Between New Adobe CC 2017 vs. CS6, 5, 4, 3?

November 8th, 2016 11 comments 116 Shares

What Are the Differences Between Adobe CC 2017 vs. Older Versions — What's New?

[UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – The all-new Adobe CC 2020 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to older versions and CS6.]

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 2017 release and the previous CC 2015.5, CC 2015, 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 and advancements in CC 2017 versus prior versions?

Now that the new CC 2017 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 2017 release, there have been thousands of significant updates – meaning new and enhanced features, added capabil­ities, and perfor­mance boosts – to the key creative applications.

[UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – The all-new Adobe CC 2020 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to older versions and CS6.]

Adobe just announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2017 release, with hundreds of new features and enhancements across their creative product line focusing on innovative new tools, improved performance, smoother workflow & connectivity, and some of that Adobe magic…  Creative Cloud 2017 is the next major release following the CC 2015, CC 2014, and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012.

The 15 upgraded desktop applications are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Animate (formerly Flash Pro), Muse, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator, Audition, Prelude, Media Encoder, Bridge, and Experience Design (XD).

Adobe CC 2015.5 Direct Download Links (Creative Cloud 2016 Rel.)

October 13th, 2016 97 comments 270 Shares

Download the New 2015.5 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy)

UPDATE – Some of these still work to download the original CC 2015.5 installers, but Adobe has recently taken down many links… However, you can also now get the all-new Creative Cloud 2021 Direct Download Links!

Back in June, Adobe rolled out major updates to its flagship Creative Cloud tools and services. The CC 2015.5 release, as it’s commonly called, includes significant new features in Adobe’s key desktop applications and performance advancements across Creative Cloud. The new versions were available immediately for worldwide download via the CC Desktop App only, because many of the tools began using a proprietary installation technology. The challenge was that many folks want or need to access the new tools directly without using Adobe’s download/app manager, and so we have been working with the company to help make standard, standalone installers publicly available (as has been the practice for all their previous creative software products).

Learn More About New Adobe CC Team Projects

Adobe’s pro video tools have made enormous advancements in recent years. So much so, that the older CS versions are hardly recognizable when compared to the newest CC editions, in terms of new features and performance improvements added since then.
