Adobe Creative Cloud is a worldwide hub for creativity: a vibrant community sharing best practices, showcasing work and building lasting connections. It brings industry-defining tools and technologies within reach to a new generation of creative talent.
On April 23, Adobe Systems unveiled its Adobe Creative Suite 6 product line along with its Adobe Creative Cloud, a cloud-based subscription service for creative professionals. Adobe CS6, a toolkit for design, Web and video professionals, features 14 new releases of Adobe applications and four Creative Suites: Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium, Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design Standard, Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium and Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection. The new subscription-based offering, Adobe Creative Cloud, will provide users with the ability to download and install every Adobe CS6 application. Creative Cloud also integrates Adobe Touch Apps into everyday work, introduces cloud-based sync and store capabilities, and powers the publishing of apps and high-impact Web experiences. "Creatives get a ton of innovation across CS6, with milestone releases of all our flagship products," wrote David Wadhwani, senior vice president of the digital media business at Adobe. "With CS6 and Creative Cloud, we're also introducing new products, new mobile workflows and advanced publishing capabilities that show we are laser-focused on ensuring design, Web and video pros have everything they need for the delivery of high-impact content and apps." Here, eWEEK looks at the apps in Adobe CS6, and many of the key features creative professionals and Web designers can leverage to build rich, compelling apps and Websites.
