The announcements from Adobe included major updates to Creative Cloud applications including Photoshop CC, Lightroom CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Premiere Pro CC and Adobe XD. The software giant also introduced Adobe Premiere Rush CC, which is their very first all-in-one, simple-to-operate video editing application, designed primarily for people creating content for social media platforms. The new platform promises to simplify video creation and broadcasting on platforms such as YouTube and Instagram. Adobe also previewed new iPad versions of Adobe Photoshop CC and Project Gemini, which is a drawing app.

Scott Belsky, Chief Product Officer and Executive Vice President, Creative Cloud, Adobe, told PhotoBite: “We’ve unveiled a portfolio of next-generation creative apps that deliver meaningful value to our community by transforming creative workflows across devices and platforms. By continuing to innovate in our flagship apps, extending into exploding segments such as experience design and social video creation, and pioneering in emerging mediums like touch, voice, 3D and augmented reality, Adobe Creative Cloud has truly become the creative platform for all.”

Innovation across applications and services

There’s new and exclusive content in Adobe Stock, including a new library of clips from GoPro. Additionally, Adobe stated that it’s addressing the requirements of the video animation trade with new workflows and integrations across apps including Animate to After Effects, Animate to Character Animator and Adobe XD to After Effects.

Premiere Rush CC

This new software has been created especially for those creating video for online sharing. Premiere Rush CC combines capture, simple editing, uncomplicated colour, audio, and motion graphics with easy publishing to social media platforms such as YouTube and Instagram. 

Using Premiere Rush CC, users no longer need to be video, colour or audio masters in order to produce and distribute pro-quality videos. The new program hosts the capability of Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC, and offers built-in access to professionally designed Motion Graphics templates in Adobe Stock to get started quickly, and features a Sensei-powered, one-click auto-duck feature to adjust music and normalise sound.

Photoshop CC update

The new update of Photoshop CC on iPad promises to deliver the power of its desktop equivalent. The iPad version will let users open and edit native PSD files using Photoshop’s industry-standard image-editing tools and will feature the familiar Photoshop layers panel. From 2019, Photoshop users will be able to start projects on an iPad, passing across edits with Photoshop CC on the desktop via Creative Cloud.
