What’s the Difference Between Acrobat DC 2016 vs. 2015 vs. XI & X?

Compare Adobe Acrobat DC 2016 vs. Older Versions - What Features are New?

One of the most frequent upgrade questions we get is what’s new, what’s different, or what’s changed between the new release of Acrobat and previous versions? Adobe Acrobat DC 2016 just launched today, and if you’re counting numerically (… 9, X, XI, DC 2015, DC 2016), then this is the 13th major release of one of Adobe’s biggest products with over 30 million customers. So put simply, what are the major new features and advance­ments in the 2016 Release of Acrobat DC (Pro or Standard), versus DC 2015, or 2012’s Acrobat XI or even 2010’s Acrobat X?

When the Document Cloud first arrived a year ago – and Acrobat DC 2015 along with it – there were some significant changes to how the software was purchased… While the desktop Acrobat Pro/Standard tool is still sold standalone with a perpetual (or “Classic”) license, many of the newer capabilities and services are only available via the Acrobat DC subscription (or “Continuous”) bundle. It’s called “Continuous” because subscribers receive all ongoing product upgrades as soon as they are available, ensuring you are always running the latest-and-greatest software with the complete featureset.

Adobe: Strong Creative Cloud Growth to 18 Million Paid Subscribers

Adobe Creative Cloud Growth Now Reaches 18 Million Paid Subscribers (Shown Quarterly Since Launch)

[UPDATE (December 2019) – In its full-year 2019 earnings call, Adobe said they grew Creative annual recurring revenue by 21% over 2018. Adding on to the estimated 15 million Creative Cloud subscribers from a year ago, this gives a likely new total of 18+ million subscribers.]

[UPDATE (December 2018) – A year ago, analysts pegged the number of Creative Cloud customers at 12 million: “We expect Adobe to end 2017 with 12 million subscribers for its CC services.” Most recently, Adobe stated in their Dec. 2018 conference call, “Within Digital Media, we achieved another strong quarter with our Creative business. Creative revenue grew 26% year-over-year in Q4.” Thus we estimate the current total to be approx. 15 million subscribers.]

Compare: Differences Between Photoshop Elements 14 vs. 13, 12, 11

[UPDATE (Oct. 2017) – The table below now includes the differences between Elements 2018 vs. versions 15, 14 and 13.]

What's New in Photoshop Elements 14?

It’s that time of year. Early each autumn, Adobe launches a new version of Photoshop Elements, and this year is no exception… Last week the company introduced Photoshop Elements 14 (with brand new free trials to download), and one of the common upgrade questions we see is what’s new, what’s different, and what’s improved in version 14 compared to the previous Elements 13?  Or more essentially, what are the key new features in PSE 14, versus PSE 13 or 12 or 11?

The bottom line is you probably want to know what’s changed since the last release (or longer) – but how about a version-by-version, feature-by-feature table? You’ll find this down below (or take a shortcut here), but first let’s take a quick look at some of the major additions.

First off, some things many folks often ask about:  As began with PSE 13 last year, Photoshop Elements 14 continues to be available in both 32-bit and native 64-bit versions for Windows systems, and 64-bit-only for Mac. There is support for 16 bits-per-pixel images but it is limited to some extent – meaning you can open 16-bit files, convert to 16-bit color depth in ACR, and do basic edits, but there is still no 16-bit support for layers, many artistic filters, and so on.

What’s the Difference: New Adobe CC 2015 vs. CS6, CS5, CS4, CS3?

What Are the Differences Between Adobe CC 2015 vs. CS6 and Other Versions — What's New?

[UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – The all-new Adobe CC 2020 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to older versions and CS6.]

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 2015 release and the previous CC 2014, CC 2013, or 2012’s Creative Suite 6 – or even the older CS5, CS4, CS3?  Or more fundamentally, what are the key new features in CC 2015 versus prior versions?

Now that the new CC 2015 mile­stone release is out world­wide, everyone is entitled to either a free upgrade or a free 30-day trial (possibly up to 60 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 2015 release, there have been well over 1,000 significant updates – meaning new and improved features, added capabil­ities, and perfor­mance improve­ments – to the key creative applications.

The New Adobe CC 2015 Release Is Here – What You Need to Know

Download the New 2015 Release of Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy) See What's New

[UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – The all-new Adobe CC 2020 release has launched and is now available! See what’s new in features and all the differences compared to older versions and CS6.]

Adobe has just announced the immediate availability of the all-new CC 2015 release, with hundreds of new features and enhancements across their creative product line focusing on workflow, performance, connectivity, and some of that Adobe magic…  Creative Cloud 2015 is the next major release following the CC 2014 and CC 2013 versions, which in turn replaced CS6 from 2012. So thinking in the old terms, this would roughly be equivalent to CS9 (and more).

The 15 desktop tools updated today are Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, InCopy, Dreamweaver, Flash Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects (including the highly-anticipated Character Animator), Audition, Prelude, Speedgrade, Media Encoder, Muse, and Edge Animate. All current Creative Cloud members will receive an automatic upgrade to the 2015 Release, and all of the new free trial downloads are also now live online. As before, the new tools and services are available via afford­able annual or monthly memberships. Adobe continues to grow Creative Cloud in a big way, now with over 18 million paid customers already having signed up.
