Adobe Creative Cloud for Individuals was launched in Singapore last month and for teams in Jaunary.

“… in addition to the traditional areas of innovation these apps are now connected to the powerful publishing and community features integral to the Creative Cloud experience,” said David Wadhwani, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Media, Adobe.

This latest Creative Cloud release includes new features in the set of “CC” desktop applications and sophisticated cross-device collaboration and publishing capabilities.

Creative files can be stored and shared, via Creative Cloud, on Mac OS, Windows, iOS and Android.

Behance, a leading online creative community, is now integrated with Creative Cloud, so customers can showcase work, get feedback on projects and gain global exposure.

15 Adobe CC desktop applications

The new CC desktop applications include Adobe Photoshop CC, InDesign CC,  Illustrator CC, Dreamweaver CC, Premiere Pro CC.

Adobe Creative Cloud includes more than 30 tools and services that enable professional-grade content creation and delivery across print, web, mobile apps, video and photography.

Hundreds of new features are included in these latest versions of Adobe’s industry-defining desktop tools, some of which are highlighted here in my earlier update.

Adobe Creative Cloud Powers Frictionless Creative Workflows

This milestone update to Creative Cloud simplifies the entire creative process including some of the core features highlighted below.

Creative Cloud Experience on the Desktop

With the new Creative Cloud desktop app, the entire creative world is synced and organized across desktop, website, and mobile device.

Creatives can stay connected to work on Behance; track feedback; and install and manage apps and updates.

More features will be added soon to manage files and desktop fonts within this same experience.

Store, Share and Collaborate

All files and assets can be shared between the desktop, cloud and mobile devices.

A designer can take a photo on their iPad, use Photoshop Touch to refine the photo while on the go, then access that file, via the cloud, and use Photoshop CC on their Mac or Windows PC to further enhance the image.

Designers can send files to view, download or comment.

Edits are stored with version history so users can revise their files with confidence.

Individual members receive 20GB of storage.

Integration With The World’s Leading Creative Community

With Behance now integrated with Creative Cloud, members are able 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.

Over 1.4 million creatives globally are part of the Behance network.

Seamless Publishing

Creative Cloud members have access to the services necessary to publish highly personalized portfolio websites using Behance ProSite, high-impact digital publications for iPad using Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) Single Edition, and PhoneGap Build to create and publish mobile apps for any device.

Adobe Typekit features an unmatched library of old-classic to new-favorite fonts for use on websites and, coming soon in an update to Creative Cloud, creatives will also be able to quickly find the perfect fonts in the growing Adobe Typekit library, sync them to their computer, and have them immediately available for use in any desktop application.

Full Creative Cloud members will soon have access to over 700 fonts, installed with a single click.
