On April 23, Adobe Systems launched Adobe Creative Cloud, a new way of providing tools and services for creative professionals. The Adobe Creative Cloud is a subscription service that is a hub for making, sharing and delivering creative work. It is based on the new release of Adobe Creative Suite 6 software, which features new design, Web, video and digital imaging tools. Adobe first announced its Creative Cloud in October 2011 at its MAX conference in Los Angeles. An Adobe Creative Cloud membership provides users with access to download and install every new Adobe CS6 application and two new HTML5 products, Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge preview. The Adobe Creative Cloud also integrates Adobe's creative tablet applications, such as Photoshop Touch—synchronizing and storing files in the cloud for sharing and access on any device. Subscribers also will be able to easily deliver mobile apps to iOS and Android marketplaces and publish, manage and host Websites. In addition, Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers will have access to application upgrades, including new CS point-product features, before they are launched as part of major CS updates, as well as inventive new products and services as they emerge. Here, eWEEK offers 14 reasons users might want to try the Adobe Creative Cloud.
