Adobe Update Their Mobile Photo Apps – Lightroom, Mix and Photoshop CC

Share

Yesterday morning I was invited to attend a Press Conference with Adobe online, the Adobe MAX The Creativity Conference. Within this Adobe announced updates to their new mobile photography apps.

This release includes radical new connections between essential CC desktop tools and a new family of mobile apps that extend the power of Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and Lightroom onto mobile devices.  The line-up, includes:

·         In the Photoshop family, Photoshop Sketch lets creatives draw with new built-in expressive brushes and enables an integrated workflow with Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC. Updates to Photoshop Mix extend precise mobile compositing capabilities and now includes enhanced integration with Photoshop CC, as well as a new iPhone version. A new Lightroom Mobile appbuilds on integrated desktop and mobile workflows andincludes features to allow clients, friends or family to select favourites and leave comments for photos shared online; and GPS information from iPhone photos now syncs with Lightroom desktop.

·         In the Illustrator family, Illustrator Draw (formerly Adobe Ideas) gives users access to their favourite vector drawing tools and features in a modern, streamlined interface, high-fidelity integration with Illustrator CC and enhanced support for Adobe Ink and Slide. Illustrator Line, a precision drawing app, gives creatives new features for perfectly distributing shapes as they draw, plus the ability to send sketches to Illustrator CC, where they have full access to their original vector paths for editing.

·         In the Premiere family, the brand new Adobe Premiere Clip appeasily transforms the video shot on iPhone or iPad into edited videos that are simple to share. Aspiring videographers can then send their compositions to Adobe Premiere Pro CC for advanced editing and finishing.

Adobe also introduced a new category of “capture” apps to create designs and bring them into creative workflows:

·         Adobe Brush CC lets designers craft unique brushes, on iPad or iPhone, to use in Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC or Adobe Illustrator Sketch. Any photograph can be made into a brush, so creatives can quickly and playfully design beautiful, high-quality brushes that can range from photorealistic, to organic, painterly or graphic.

·         Adobe Shape CC is a simple, unique and fun way to capture and create shapes on iPhone or iPad, wherever inspiration strikes. A high-contrast photo of anything – a chair, a pet, or a hand-drawn font – is converted into vector art that can be used immediately in Illustrator CC and Adobe Illustrator Line via Creative Cloud Libraries.

·         Adobe Colour CC (formerly Adobe Kuler) allows creatives to capture colours and save them as themes that are immediately available in other Adobe applications, including Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC.

These mobile apps work with all Creative Cloud plans, giving everyone — from freelancers, to creatives in large organisations — access to all the benefits of a deeply integrated mobile and desktop workflow, connected via their Creative Profile. Adobe also launched the public beta of a Creative SDK that powers the delivery of new 3rd party mobile apps that connect to Creative Cloud. Adobe Creative SDK is available at: creativesdk.adobe.com.

Thanks for the heads up on this Joanne. I’ve moved into a mostly AdobeCC workflow and these new apps look really great. Kuler was awesome and Ideas too. Can’t wait to try the new apps!
