The key topic of discussion at tonight’s LA Web Professionals Group meeting, where Deke was presenting some live Deke’s Techniques, was Adobe’s announcement about the Creative Cloud. The upshot: Rather than release Creative Suite 7, all updates to Photoshop and its creative cousins will now come via a Creative Cloud subscription. In other words, if you want the new features in the latest version of Photoshop, you’re going to get them delivered via the cloud.
This is necessarily causing some confusion and questions for Creative Suite users. I’ve got two useful sources for information on “Photoshop CC.” If your questions are primarily about obtaining, installing, and using Creative Cloud, check out this FAQ from Photoshop’s Chief Customer Advocate (and friend of dekeOnline) Jeff Tranberry. If you want to know why you might care to obtain, install, and use Photoshop CC, then check out Deke’s new Preview of Photoshop Creative Cloud’s new features at lynda.com. If you’re not a member of lynda.com, you can get a free week’s trial to check it out at lynda.com/deke.
