New Mobile Apps Unveiled, Touch Added To Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Tools

Android / iOS / Mobile / Photography

Adobe has announced two new mobile apps at Adobe MAX 2015 – Photoshop Fix and Capture CC. These new apps enable quick retouching and asset capture on the go. Adobe also announced new Touch capabilities across existing Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications including Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and Premiere Pro CC. In addition, video content will be coming soon to Adobe Stock.

“Creative Cloud has become the de facto platform for all creatives, providing the tools and services to fulfill every creative need. With this latest release, we’re giving our creative customers the freedom they need to work and be inspired from anywhere,” said Bryan Lamkin, senior vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. “Being connected to your assets, team and projects, at all times, is critical to today’s designers. With this Creative Cloud update, Adobe’s signature CreativeSync technology drives powerful connections between desktop and mobile apps as well as essential creative assets.”

The world first got a glimpse of Photoshop Fix at the last Apple Keynote event, and is now available today for iOS devices. The app allows users to retouch photos on their iPads and iPhones using key Photoshop desktop features like the Healing Brush and Liquify.

Adobe previously released Adobe Brush, Adobe Shape, Adobe Color, and Adobe Hue which allow designers to capture color, shapes, and other real world assets for use in the desktop apps. Capture CC, released today for iOS and Android combines the capabilities of the previous four apps into a single, simple-to-use app. All assets created with Adobe mobile apps can now be saved to Creative Cloud libraries which can be accessed on desktop and other mobile devices, making it easier to collaborate, keep designs consistent, and even create style guides to use across projects.

One of the biggest additions to the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite is undoubtedly driven by the rising popularity of touchscreen monitors and laptops. As a result, Adobe is introducing new touch capabilities in Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and Premiere Pro CC.

Photographers and designers alike will like the debut of Adobe Portfolio, a new way to easily create portfolio websites without needing to know any code. Coming soon, Portfolio will be free with any Creative Cloud plan and allow users to create custom Portfolio sites which support responsive web design to ensure content looks great across different devices and screen sizes. Built on Behance, Portfolio sites can include a personalized URL, password-protection, and use Typekit fonts. Because they are built on Behance, users can sync their Portfolio sites to their Behance Projects pages.
