This morning, Adobe unveiled the new CC 2019 Release, which the company says is the biggest product launch since they first introduced Creative Cloud over six years ago.

We have never delivered so much amazing new innovation to customers on the same day. I can’t wait to see what you create!”

Today Adobe announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2019 release, the next generation of Creative Cloud with hundreds of new features and advancements across their product line surrounding three key themes: to accelerate your work, to liberate your creativity, and to help you create anything…  CC 2019 is the next major release following the CC 2018, CC 2017, CC 2015, CC 2014, and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012.

The 17 upgraded CC desktop applications are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Adobe XD, Dimension, Animate, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, Character Animator, Media Encoder, Bridge, Camera Raw, Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic. In addition, there’s a recently-improved version of Acrobat DC, plus a brand new 1.0 product in Premiere Rush CC for all-in-one, cross-device video editing that makes creating and sharing online content easier than ever – as well as previews of three upcoming apps: Project Gemini for amazing drawing and painting across all surfaces, Project Aero for powerfully authoring AR (augmented reality) experiences, and the much-anticipated Photoshop CC for the iPad (the real deal).

Get Adobe Creative Cloud Now, Free or Paid

Having originally launched almost seven years ago, by this time you’ve heard about Adobe’s fast-growing Creative Cloud, you’ve dispelled the all-too-common myths surrounding it, and perhaps are considering subscribing to CC now that over 12 million of your colleagues already have…

But did you know that no matter what you do, you can sign up right now for a zero-cost class of membership that never expires and provides free benefits for life?  Anyone can have this free level currently in 83 countries worldwide, even if you still use the older tools instead, or even if you use no other Adobe products or services at all.  No credit card is required.

Download Free New Book, ‘Adobe CC Design Basics’ (228 Pages)

September 17th, 2018 16 comments

With over 12 million paid members for Creative Cloud and growing, we often get this question from readers: “What’s a good book to get started with the most popular Adobe tools?” 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, and that you can download instantly?

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 2018 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” that will give you all of this for free, courtesy of author Professor Thomas Payne… The book works 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.
