Adobe has announced, during its MAX conference, significant feature updates to the software within Creative Cloud. These updates will be available on 17 June in the US (18 June in Singapore).

The component software in Creative Cloud has also been rebranded with “CC” suffix to reflect that they are an integral part of Creative Cloud and have been reinvented to support a more intuitive, connected way of creating.

For instance, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro will now be rebranded a Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Premiere Pro CC respectively.

There will be no new versions of the Adobe Creative Suite.

In the meantime, Adobe has also integrated Behance into Creative Cloud so that users can upload their work directly from the component software of Creative Cloud onto Behance.

Behance is a social portfolio network that enables users to publish their own portfolios, follow other creatives, publish work-in-progress from within a growing number of CC apps and solicit feedback from the worldwide creative community.

Below are some of the new features that will debut as part of the mid-June Creative Cloud update (extracted from Adobe’s press release).

Photoshop CC will ship with new sharpening technologies and designer workflow enhancements.

Camera Shake Reduction removes blur from images that would have otherwise been lost due to camera movement.

All-new Smart Sharpen makes texture and detail pop, and Adobe Camera Raw 8 adds even more powerful photographic controls to straighten and perfect images.

Photoshop CC is the first Adobe desktop application to include the ability to post files directly to Behance from within the application, showcasing work immediately and integrating peer feedback into the creative process.

For designers, the Touch Type tool in Illustrator CC offers a new level of creativity with type.

Move, scale, and rotate text characters knowing that it remains editable.

This feature works with a mouse, stylus or multi-touch device.

Illustrator CC also enables painting with a brush made from a photo.

Art, Pattern, and Scatter brushes can contain raster images, so designers can create complex organic designs quickly, with simple brush strokes.

A new, modern architecture for InDesign CC turbocharges performance, and in-browser editing in Adobe Muse CC – a tool for designers to create and publish HTML websites without writing code – allows clients to make edits to a published website, which can then be reviewed, approved, and updated by the designer.

For video customers, Adobe Premiere Pro CC includes dramatic new editing features, customizations and improvements to help editors work efficiently.

Premiere Pro CC integrates powerful color workflows, with the addition of the Lumetri Deep Color Engine to easily apply rich color grading looks.

A high-impact version of Adobe After Effects CC brings motion graphics and visual effects artists more creative possibilities and allows them to work more easily in 3D with the new Live 3D Pipeline with Maxon Cinema4D integration.

There are also all-new versions of Adobe SpeedGrade CC, Audition CC, Prelude CC and Adobe Story CC Plus.

Web designers and developers can look forward to significant advances in Adobe’s family of Edge tools and services.

The latest Edge Animate CC lets web designers create animated and interactive content with amazing ease and precision, using native HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Adobe is also previewing a new workflow from Photoshop CC to Edge Reflow CC that will enable creatives to build web designs in Photoshop CC that can easily be turned into responsive web sites.

Dreamweaver CC users can look forward to the most up-to-date CSS and properties via the intuitive visual editing tool, CSS Designer.

And Adobe Flash Pro CC features a modern, modular 64-bit architecture rebuilt from the ground up to be fast and reliable.
