Adobe logo 300x225 Adobe Creative Cloud: A New Standard for Creative ProfessionalsCloud computing is spreading in recent years with a massive dose of apps that allow users to always have files and data and making mobility and working outside the office a possibility without many compromises.

Adobe Systems Incorporated has not been an exception and thus launched the Creative Cloud. Adobe has announced that it will start to provide Adobe Creative Cloud solution, a cloud based service for users to easily create, modify, share and transmit Adobe’s designer products online starting next month. The company also introduced the next version of its flagship software kit for designers and web developers, Adobe Creative Suite 6.

Adobe Creative Cloud is a new solution that integrates cloud-based services and a variety of products and other creative CS6 products. Creative Cloud is broadly divided into three services and products – Creative Service, Creative Apps and Creative Community.

A subscription to Creative Cloud offers users access to download and install all the new Creative Suite 6, including two new products for HTML5 – Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge Preview. Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge Preview are not part of the desktop versions of CS6 products.

Adobe Creative Cloud integrates applications such as Photoshop Touch for tablet use to offer creativity in the daily workflow, archiving and synchronizing files easily in the cloud, for sharing and access from any device. Members of Creative Cloud can easily deploy, publish, manage and host mobile app websites for the iPhone OS and Android Play.

“It’s a major sea change in the industry,” David Wadhwani, general manager of Adobe’s digital media unit, said at an event at the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco.

Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe InDesign CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6, Adobe Dreamweaver CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe After Effects CS6, and Adobe Flash Professional CS6 will be part of the Creative Cloud offering. In addition, users will have access to online services to share files, publish and use the latest features by creating something that gives them great freedom. The Adobe touch apps are available separately on the iTunes App Store or Google Play.

The members of the Adobe Creative Cloud will have immediate access to upgrades and application specific features of the new CS product, before it’s released as part of an update release.

The Creative Cloud subscription includes 20 GB of storage space with the possibility of expansion for upgrade users. The fees start at $50 in case of a one-year subscription.

Shantanu Narayen, Adobe’s CEO said the company will provide a transition plan for existing customers to update their service with Creative Cloud.

“We make mission-critical products for people in the publishing industry,” he said. “Should they want the current version for a while, we’ll continue to do that.”

Adobe has the tradition to provide world class designer software for web developers. But the evolution of cloud computing has forced Adobe to bring more software models to cloud. Adobe plans to add a billion dollar sales and spreading revenue with the new Creative Cloud offerings in coming years.
