With over 15 million customers having already signed up in the six years since it launched, Adobe’s Creative Cloud (CC) product line has been a success exceeding even the company’s own expectations. Still, there are a lot of misconceptions out there that we see from time to time, or that some folks seem to believe… (do you?) Here below we dispel and debunk the top 10 most common myths we’ve heard – and hopefully even if you already know the scoop or use Creative Cloud you’ll pick something up… read on!
[UPDATE – Also see our new Summer CC 2019 Giveaway!]
Last month, Adobe shipped the all-new CC 2019 set of tools and services – a milestone marking the seventh major release of the CC product line, which replaced CS6 from 2012. This latest CC version contains thousands of new features and advancements compared to CS6 (across all creative applications), and it is available only via Creative Cloud membership – a community which now surpasses 15 million paid subscribers.
Adobe CC 2019 is also known as the Creative Cloud 2019 Release… And that is exactly what we’re giving away for free below, and this offer is open to everyone worldwide.
Adobe is having a worldwide sale with money-saving deals lined up through Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 (and beyond), and we’ve got the complete guide below… There are some amazing offers for major products in this “season of savings” – with discounts as much as 74% off the regular prices!
The company is running four major promotions for the all-new Creative Cloud (CC) 2019. These are the all-time lowest prices ever offered on these popular products. The holiday deals begin today, November 16th, and will run continuously until Friday, November 30th (extended!) at 11:59pm Pacific Time. So don’t delay, as these values only come once per year!
Over the years, we’ve put together a large collection of free Adobe books that we share with our readers here… This extensive set of helpful, no-cost books has now grown to over 30 different titles that you can legally download and use royalty-free, forever.
These digital books cover Creative Cloud, Creative Suite, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Muse, Lightroom and more – but until now, we haven’t always had a good and recent offering for Adobe Animate CC (formerly Flash Professional).
Fortunately, this has changed with the publication of the new “Creating Multiplatform Animations with Animate CC” guidebook, which comes from award-winning Adobe Education Leader and longtime Animate guru Joseph Labrecque.
Mr. Labrecque conducted a paid Animate CC workshop at the Adobe MAX conference this month, and is now making the class’s training materials available to the general public completely free of charge. This special offer includes the main 59-page course workbook together with 9 MB of sample working assets, all of which you can download for free here.
Here is the overview description of this course:
Did you make it to MAX this year? Adobe’s Creativity Conference once again broke records with 14,000 attendees coming together in Los Angeles last week, a full doubling from 7,000 only 3 years ago… In fact, it was the largest gathering of talented creative professionals that there has ever been in one room, anytime in history!
Those who were there enjoyed major new product launches, inspirational keynotes from creative luminaries, hundreds of enriching training sessions, countless opportunities for networking with colleagues, access to the latest cool technology on the Pavilion floor, meeting the Adobe product teams in person, and the always-mind-blowing “Sneak Peek” demos of amazing new features under development.
But if you didn’t make it, no worries – believe it or not, you can still tap into many of the best resources from the comfort of your own laptop, tablet, or phone!
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 2019 release and the previous CC 2018, CC 2017, CC 2015.5, CC 2015, CC 2014, CC 2013, or 2012’s Creative Suite 6? Or more fundamentally, what are the key new features and advancements in CC 2019 versus prior versions?
Now that the new CC 2019 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 2019 release, there have been thousands of significant updates – meaning new and enhanced features, added capabilities, and performance improvements – to the key creative applications.
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 18 upgraded CC desktop applications are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Adobe XD, Dimension, Animate, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, Character Animator, Media Encoder, Prelude, Bridge, Camera Raw, Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic. In addition, there’s a recently-improved version of Acrobat DC Pro, 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 Read more…
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 15 million of your colleagues already have…
You probably also know that Adobe stopped development of the older “CS” releases back in 2012, and that there have been thousands of new product features, enhancements, and performance improvements added to CC since Creative Suite ended, as well as integral new services.
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.
If you’ve already purchased or are considering buying Adobe’s Creative Cloud for Teams, then the free downloadable PDF guide (plus videos) below will help you learn how to best use the group and licensing management tools that come with this plan.
