Adobe Photoshop CC is available and ready to download! Adobe also released updates to several other Creative Cloud apps, including Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC.
Simply put, Adobe Creative Cloud is an ongoing membership that gives you access to Adobe's Creative Suite products. That means that rather than having to pay for the suite up front and getting a shrinkwrapped copy, you'll get full access any time anywhere for a simple and affordable monthly fee.
Why is Adobe Creative Cloud Cool?
Creative Cloud makes owning the Adobe Creative Suite easier and more flexible than ever:
Lower up-front costs: Rather than paying a large sum up front, you can subscribe to Creative Cloud on a monthly or yearly basis. Plans start as low as $19.99 a month and you choose the plan that's most affordable for you!
Freedom to choose which programs to install: Creative Cloud enables you to install each application individually whenever it works best for you. Mix and match and install whatever you want.
Automatic updates: Stay on the leading edge of Adobe technology with the latest products, services, features, and workflows as soon as they are available. No more waiting months or years for the latest and greatest innovations.
Access to both Mac or Windows: If you have a Mac at home and a PC at work, you can install your applications on both as long as they are not running at the same time. See the Adobe product license agreements page for more information.
Exclusive access to new features: Adobe Creative Cloud gives you access to online services that are not available through the desktop products alone, like administrative tools for centralized license purchase and management, workgroup features for greater collaboration, increased storage capacity (100GB), and expert services.
Cloud storage: You'll get 20GB of cloud storage space on www.creativecloud.com and file syncing to be able to access your work on any device.
What's New in Photoshop CC?
Amongst other new features, here are some exciting ones:
All-new Smart Sharpen
Rich textures, crisp edges, and distinct details. All-new Smart Sharpen is the most advanced sharpening technology available today. It analyzes images to maximize clarity and minimize noise and halos, and it lets you fine-tune for high-quality, natural-looking results.
Camera Raw 8 and layer support
Apply Camera Raw edits as a filter to any layer or file inside Photoshop, and then enhance them any way you want. And with new Adobe® Camera Raw 8, you get more precise ways to heal images, fix perspective distortions, and create vignettes.
Camera Shake Reduction
Save shots you thought were lost due to camera motion. Whether your blur was caused by slow shutter speed or a long focal length, Camera Shake Reduction analyzes its trajectory and helps restore sharpness.
