What is the Adobe Creative Cloud and how does it work?

Adobe Creative Cloud
The Adobe Creative Cloud is the way that Adobe sells its software and products, many years ago you would choose the software you require for example Adobe Photoshop, you would then buy a box off the shelf with the DVDs to install the software on your computer. Then in a few years time you would pay for an upgrade DVD to update your version of Adobe Photoshop. var uri = 'https://impgb.tradedoubler.com/imp?type(img)g(22838624)a(3049974)' + new String (Math.random()).substring (2, 11); document.write(''); These days however it has all changed, all Adobe software is sold on a subscription...

Why Adobe Creative Cloud Is The Ultimate Tool For Business

For years, Adobe have been the number one company for building creative design software. And for good reason – the design software suite from Adobe is simply the best. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a designer that would genuinely refute this assertion. Each of Adobe’s flagship programs – Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign – are extremely powerful tools in their own respective rights. Photograph manipulation is practically infinite with Photoshop. Graphic designs are implausibly good with Illustrator. And what you can’t put together in an InDesign document simply can’t be put together a...

Indeed, it’s not that we could ever imagine, nor even want, a replacement for Adobe Illustrator – but if Adobe were so inclined every once in a while to give it a rejig, to make it better, faster, more powerful, and with maybe one or two new features thrown in for us to get our teeth into, then who are we to complain? The new features for Adobe Illustrator are indeed as exciting as the news that foretold them. But, as with all things brand new, t...

Basic Colour Theory For Design Explained

What does the colour red mean to you? For me, it’s most definitely a colour that resembles power and desire. Though for others, this same colour signifies danger. Still more would say that red is the colour of love. And even more still would say it connotes blood, death and/or romanticism. In truth, red signifies all of these things – though of course they are determined by subconscious cultural forces over which we have little or no control. Indeed, the colour red has strong associations with communism in Russia and other parts of the world – though perhaps less so in the UK. And so,...

Adobe Bridge: The Creative Link Between InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator

Adobe Bridge: The Creative Link Between InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator
It wasn’t long ago – in this very blog, in fact – that I was raising the not uncommon hypothetical question: why doesn’t Adobe just combine all the greatest elements of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign into one almighty, all-powerful package that can do everything? Well, at the time, I answered quite succinctly – “They don’t,” I said. And then added: “They might do one day, but for the time being we have to make use of them all separately – but that doesn’t mean that they can’t all be used as one single application.” var uri = 'https://impgb.tradedoubler.com/imp?type(img)g(22838624)a(30...
