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 2021 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 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.

Update: Adobe Confirms New Dehaze/Defog Tool Coming in CC 2015

May 29th, 2015 15 comments 150 Shares

We originally ran the story below in October after a new Dehaze/Defog capability was sneak-peeked at Adobe MAX… It was our favorite of the show! Now, we have some great news: Adobe worldwide evangelist Terry White just confirmed this will actually be a real feature coming soon in the new CC 2015 release of creative tools. Here’s his video demo:

Dehaze will in fact be included in both Lightroom CC 2015 and Photoshop CC 2015 as part of Adobe Camera Raw. All complete Creative Cloud members as well as Photography Plan subscribers will automatically receive this update at no extra cost as soon as the new version is available. Note that Dehaze is not included in Lightroom 6.

And it’s now confirmed! The official release date for CC 2015 is on June 16th.

What’s the Difference Between Lightroom 6/CC vs. 5 – What’s New?

April 23rd, 2015 34 comments 102 Shares

Compare Versions: What Are the Differences Between Lightroom 6/CC vs. LR5?

The long-awaited Adobe Lightroom 6/CC began shipping this week, and has got some folks pretty excited about the new features and capabilities… There’s a long list of them given further below, but some of the highlights include much improved performance, facial recognition, photo merge for both HDR and panorama, advanced video slideshows, improved web galleries, new Pet Eye tool, touch-enabled PC support, plus GPU acceleration and native 64-bit architecture on Windows and Mac.

One big change is the naming difference and what you get with the two options (Lightroom 6 vs. Lightroom CC). You can still buy a standalone perpetual version as before (either full or upgrade from an older release) – the product is then called Lightroom 6 and it will still receive bug fixes and new camera/lens additions, but will not get ongoing new feature updates and does not have access to online LR features and apps such as Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom web.
