Adobe: Creative Cloud for Teams (Volume Licensing) Coming Soon

November 27th, 2012 7 comments

Learn More New About Creative Cloud for Teams Coming Soon

[UPDATE (December 11th) – As predicted, Creative Cloud for Teams is here now today!]

During a recent conference call with analysts, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayan revealed some of the company’s future plans surrounding new offerings for the Creative Cloud:

Response to the Creative Cloud has exceeded our expectations, and we expect adoption to accelerate as we deliver constant innovation exclusively to members. Our success thus far has been with individual users. Over the next few months, we will introduce new offerings for teams and enterprises which significantly expand the market opportunity for Creative Cloud.

In November, we will launch Creative Cloud for teams, which will enhance collaboration and simplify the setup, management and administration for creative workgroups.

Next year, we will also deliver an enterprise version of Creative Cloud targeted for compa­nies who wish to deploy and provision Creative Cloud across large organizations with a scale similar to the enterprise license agreements we have for Creative Suite today.

Creative Cloud for teams and enterprises will be made available through our channel partners as well as directly from Adobe.

Photoshop Image Deblurring: Coming Soon to Adobe Creative Cloud?

October 26th, 2012 15 comments

[UPDATE (April 2013) – Confirmed: Image Deblurring is coming soon in Photoshop!]

Adobe Photoshop Image Deblurring: Winter Scene (Roll Over or Tap for the Before & After)

One year ago at their annual MAX conference, Adobe showed a sneak peak of some exciting work in progress: the prototype of a new Photoshop Image Deblurring feature that takes shaky photos and brings them into focus. The demonstration was impressive and the tech­nology received huge press at the time, but ultimately was said to be too early stage to make it into the final release of Photoshop CS6 this past spring.  Since that time, our readers have been asking about the status of the unblurring function – and when, where, and how we might see it finally released and available to the public.

Well now, we may finally have an answer.

Earlier this week as part of the Wall Street Journal’s Viewpoints West series, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen gave a one-hour interview over a wide range of subjects including the changing media landscape, Steve Jobs, the U.S in the global economy, and much relating Adobe itself. Near the end of the sit-down session (at the 56:27 mark), he dropped a huge hint about what’s happening with Photoshop Image Deblurring:

Download FREE Adobe Edge Animate 1.5 + Get 500 Free Web Fonts

September 28th, 2012 7 comments

[UPDATE (February 2013) – Adobe has just released a free software upgrade and everyone can now get Edge Animate 1.5 (still) for free! (download it here)  They’ve also now made available for all users a free preview version of Edge Reflow, their new responsive-web design tool.]

Perhaps the biggest news from Adobe’s Create the Web event earlier this week is how much they’re giving away their new mobile-ready web development software… The new Edge Tools & Services collection includes some great products for free download and use, including the final official release of Edge Animate 1.0 – the full and permanent version at no charge (regularly US$499) – for creating interactive and animated web content.

Download New Adobe Edge Animate Free - The Full Permanent Version!

Edge Animate (formerly known as “Adobe Edge” during its long Preview period) is effectively Adobe’s “Flash Pro for the HTML5/CSS3 world” – this new application works similarly to how Flash Professional does for creating rich media – but instead of generating Flash, it outputs standards-based HTML that can be viewed in browsers all across the web, on desktops and laptops as well as mobile devices and tablets.

Adobe: CS6 Due Out “Late in Q2” with Very Compelling New Features

March 21st, 2012 12 comments

[UPDATE (May 7th) – Here it is, Creative Suite 6 is out!]

On a publicly-available conference call this week, Adobe’s CEO shared some new details on the timing and features of an upcoming CS6 release…  It was the most information given to date on the question, and it confirms the expectations from our recent forecast.

Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen

In our Digital Media business, recent research shows our customers are excited about our upcoming launch of Creative Suite and the Creative Cloud. Among creative professional customers and students, we found that over 40% of those surveyed are waiting for the new release to upgrade.

Our upcoming Creative Suite release will include major updates to all of the core CS products, including Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, InDesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver. We have created significant anticipation for the release through a series of “sneak peeks” of great new features. One sneak video featured a break­through Photoshop innovation called Content-Aware Move, which has driven more than a million online views.

The upcoming CS release will also advance our HTML5 and mobile content creation and app development offerings, where we see strong interest to help our customers deal with the complexity they face.  All of this is on track for delivery late in Q2.
