“Creative Treat” to Be Part of New Accuracy-in-Naming Initiative

SAN JOSE, Calif.April 1, 2019—Citing continued confusion over the Creative Cloud name introduced seven years ago, Adobe Systems announced today that it is relaunching its flagship product line as “Creative Treat.”

Adobe Ends Creative Cloud & Suite, Announces New Creative Treat

Commenting on the move, Founder John Adobe explained that too many people were still thinking Creative Cloud meant that mainline desktop tools like Photoshop and Illustrator were run­ning as online applica­tions in a web browser – something he says will never actually happen.

“Creative Suite was the old model, and Creative Cloud is the new model,” Mr. Adobe said. “And yes, it has some important cloud-based services – but now with Creative Treat, we finally have a name that represents the sweet experience you should expect as a customer when using all these great tools,” he added.

Origins of the New Name

“With the thousands of innovations added since the release of CS6, plus complete access to full versions of all our top software for an affordable price, using these delicious new creative prod­ucts is really a treat, most of all,” he explained.

How to Solve It When Adobe Programs or Updates Won’t Download

The Adobe CC Desktop App Manager: How Does It Work?

We’re on the Adobe Help Forums every day and regularly see users posting queries like “Can’t install Photoshop from the Creative Cloud” or CC 2019 won’t download,” or “my product updates aren’t working”… It could be for the free trials or for the full paid versions.

Often the issue is related to one or the other download managers (DLM) that Adobe uses to deliver its software install­ers. Over the years and for various tools, they have used the Akamai Down­load Manager, the Adobe Down­load Assistant (ADA), the Adobe Applica­tion Manager (AAM), and now the Creative Cloud’s CC Desktop App.

Adobe employs these helper utilities because their downloads are usually large – multiple gigabytes – and download managers can help correct for unreliable Internet connections, and resume a download after it has been paused or unexpectedly broken.

But it turns out there can be interactions between the DLM and configurations of your computer, web browser, anti-virus software, Internet connection, or something else which causes it not to work. Read more…

How to Access, Restore or Update to Any Version of Adobe CC Apps

How Does the Adobe CC Desktop App Manager Work?

One of the biggest strengths of the Adobe CC 2019 release is receiving a complete set of creative tools with an ongoing stream of updates included at no extra cost… We no longer have to wait years for our products to innovate and keep pace with evolving technologies; instead we receive the latest and greatest features and improvements as soon as they are ready.

Since the initial launch of CC in 2013, Adobe has regularly issued new upgrades for each individual app about once every 3-4 months, bringing new power and capabilities to all subscribers.

Normally the Creative Cloud works seamlessly with these ongoing product updates… The CC Desktop App runs quietly in the System Tray and notifies the customer that a new upgrade is avail­able for any of the included applications like Photoshop CC, and (optionally whenever desired) the user clicks one button to auto­matically download and install the update in the back­ground.

The Differences Between Different Types of Creative Cloud Membership: CC for Teams vs. Individuals

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.
