The Adobe Creative Cloud: Designing In The Cloud

The Adobe Creative Cloud: Designing In The Cloud

Adobe is a brand name on the internet. We pretty much all use it. Trusted the world over for it’s design and publishing tools. What is less known is Adobe’s digital hub: Adobe Creative Cloud.

Adobe Creative Cloud allows connectivity with Adobe Touch Apps. Creative Cloud enables a mobile workforce, essential in today’s modern workforce. Adobe Creative Cloud allows you to do the things you would expect with cloud technology, create, explore, share and deliver your work using any Adobe Creative Suite desktop tools, including new applications like Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge, which is not available on the traditional Creative Suite packages.

Creative Cloud is being offered as a membership and costs $49 per month. It is not a small amount of money but medium sized businesses and upwards would hardly notice the sum. Creative Cloud always includes the latest version of every Adobe application. The apps can only be installed on two computers but has the advantage of supporting installation on a Mac and a PC, which resolves any compatibility issues.

Creative Cloud enables a mobile workforce to work from the start of an idea all the way to publishing. The new internet-based services it has allows the user to make high-end digital magazines and first-class, interactive websites.

Adobe has conceived it’s cloud to work in collaboration with their desktop and tablet software. You can use 20GB of online storage, view and share across different devices and transfer any files into Adobe Creative Suite to tweak or improve.

While all files are sync-able you can control what files are shared with whom, you can also do web hosting on five sites, do book app publishing and have unlimited use of iOS magazine. Users can set who can download and view shared files.

Adobe have plans to add more apps to their Creative Cloud in the next few months. Scott Morris, Adobe’s Senior Marketing Director for Creative Pros, told The Mac Observer that in the summer Lightroom will become available to Creative Cloud subscribers, as will Edge.

Creative Cloud doesn’t require online access to use the apps. They apps download and install just like the traditional Adobe software. However, you will need internet access once a month so you can verify that your Creative Cloud Subscription is active. Creative Cloud includes all of Adobe’s apps.

All in all the launch of the Creative Cloud is good for creatives and those working in advertising and marketing. Adobe are the good standard for web design and the possibilities the Creative Cloud brings can only assure it’s place as a must-have in the creative sector.
