In May, Adobe rolled out their online Creative Cloud service featuring Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator HTML5 web design, and other apps. This new subscription model basically eliminates the need to buy stand-alone Adobe products and subsequent upgrades, although that option is still available.
Recently, they announced they were offering a special Creative Cloud subscription membership for only $9.99 per month for current Photoshop CS 3 or higher users who sign up by December 31, 2013. This membership will include access to Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, and more, such as 20 GB of online storage and future updates. See the Adobe site for all the details.
Speaking of those future updates, they’re actually just right around the corner. In October, many of their Creative Cloud video tools will be receiving big tune-ups. How big?
Well, for example:
- Premiere Pro: It will now support UltraHD and Red Dragon 6K footage. Also, multicamera and closed-captioning tools we be improved.
- Prelude Live Logger: This iPad companion app will let users log footage on their iPad while on location. It will also be able to utilize wireless timecode generators to keep footage in sync with metadata across Adobe’s other Creative Cloud apps.
- Adobe After Effects: This must-have, industry standard FX program gets a major speed boost, for one. Also, to make it even more “on-the-go” friendly, it’s been added to Adobe Anywhere, which will now enable easy collaboration with Premiere users.
All in all, there are more than 150 new features and upgrades entering the Creative Cloud. But a picture’s worth a thousand words and seeing is believing, so take a look at them in action in this video:
Impressive, no? It would be wise to jump on Adobe’s discount offer on Creative Cloud while you have the chance to take full advantage of all of these new features. Additional special discounts from Adobe are always available, but this one seems a to-good-to-be-true, one-timer. Hop on it before it rides off into the sunset.
