After two years from the latest release from Adobe, and renewing the most famous image editors. Photoshop, in this case CS6 version brings new features and major improvements to performance, all displayed in a free beta.
This is more than an advance: this beta is complete, can be used only for a limited time, and serves to generate Adobe feedback for use by potential customers. We see in this trial all individuals and new features we see in the new editor, and trial versions available on Adobe Labs and work on Mac OS or Windows platform.
Adobe says '...Creative Cloud is a major new initiative that radically redefines the content creation process. Adobe Creative Cloud will become the focal point for creativity, where millions can access desktop and tablet applications, use essential creative services, and share their best work.'
Adobe will continue providing TypeKit service, but now as part of one of the new products of Creative Cloud.
Adobe Creative Cloud is centered around an innovative collection of Adobe Touch Apps that re-imagine creative software for the mobile age and enable tablet devices to be an integral part of the creative process.
MyPaint is a brilliant open source application for digital painters. It provides plentiful of dynamic options for creating a graphical output that resembles the work of a real life canvas based painting. Although, MyPaint is primarily designed for Linux, versions for both Windows and Mac are also available. It comes with a large brush collection that emulates the effect of substances such as charcoal and ink while the in-build brush engine allows mixing and mashing brush types in order to create an output that appears like a real life painting.
Creative Suite 5.5 has recently released by Adobe, whose fifth major version was released almost a year ago. The important thing in this release are not developments that could include applications that make up this package for designers and professionals, but new approaches for the future raises.
First, the enhancements are focused very much on enhancing the HTML 5 and CSS3 standards. Now we can export ePub format books with a large multimedia content in InDesign, Flash Pro supports the latest versions of Flash Player and Adobe AIR, there are improvements in the Mercury engine, Adobe Audition runs natively on Mac OS X and Dreamweaver many improvements to be compatible with Web standards (especially fine-tuning the effects that enhance CSS3 transitions).
The most important is perhaps the release of Adobe Photoshop Touch SDK, a development environment designed for tactile interfaces that have smartphones and tablets on the market today. Thanks to him, all programmers who want to be able to make their applications integrate with Photoshop and its services. An example of these applications are the same Nav, Color Wash and Eazel that Adobe has launched to demonstrate the power of the SDK: the idea is that while the computer is responsible for processing all the work with its more powerful processor, other devices such as tablet can be used to manipulate the work we are doing. For example, we can mix and create colors to your liking from an IPAD with Adobe Color Wash and use them through the local network for our computer Photoshop.
One of the coolest things at the Photoshop World Conference 2011 was the unveiling of the Photoshop for iPad tech that Adobe is working on. While the recent upgrades for Photoshop Express on iOS adds some horsepower to the app, the stuff that Adobe has in the pipeline for tablet devices looks pretty sick.
This unnamed version would let users add, switch to, and edit layers with an isometric view to show the different layers at a glance. Other additions should bring image objects that can be dragged and rotated as well as a color mixer that allows blending 'like a painter'.
The software developer didn't say how likely the new version was to come to fruition or give a timeline. Support for Android or other platforms also wasn't mentioned.
Although nothing is known at the public level, Adobe is preparing the sixth version of Creative Suite, your application package graphic design and web development and multimedia. It seems we have some surprises: it has appeared a possible name change for Photoshop and Lightroom, two of the most used of all.
The reasons for this name change intended to improve the target to digital photographers, even if it satisfies me that there will be a few misunderstandings: the current would be called Photoshop Lightroom and the current would become ImageReady Photoshop. In addition, a new edition of Creative Suite Premium Edition Photography call be launched for sale, geared for people interested in photography.
