Adobe has made a large number of updates to its suite of Creative Cloud apps today. While most of the main apps have extra features for designers and film makers to try out, the main changes revolve around a few major additions to Photoshop, as well as a deeper integration with Adobe Stock, increasing the library of content available to use as well as making it easier to add content to a project, and notice of an upcoming change for users to make money from their own creations.
Adobe has updated the Capture CC app for iOS and Android, adding a new tool for creating patterns using the iPhone or iPad's camera. The Patterns function "transforms any image or real-world object into a geometric or organic pattern," removing the time-consuming process associated with creating the images via normal editing tools, with the feature able to quickly create the designs and make them available for use in other Creative Cloud apps.
Adobe is helping those producing content for virtual reality headsets, by adding functions to its Creative Cloud apps aimed at enhancing VR and 360-degree video workflows. Central to the new features, set to arrive in the early summer, Premiere Pro CC will include a VR "field of view" mode that can potentially help video editors work with spherical video, allowing them to see what the viewer would see when pointed in specific directions.
Late last night, Adobe issued a patch to fix a serious problem that had arisen in its latest update of its Creative Cloud software. On Friday, some users -- particularly those who used the Backblaze backup service -- found that installing the CC update would delete the contents of whatever was the "first" folder (listed alphabetically) in the root system directory. The script that caused the problem would remove contents of the (usually invisible) first-listed folder.
Late on Monday, Adobe announced that three of its web and image management programs had all received significant updates: Animate -- formerly known as Flash Professional, but now more of an HTML5 design program -- has been bumped up to Animate CC, a full member of the Creative Cloud family of apps, with many new changes. The company's Muse CC has also been updated to incorporate "responsive design" capabilities, and Bridge CC picks up photo downloader support under 10.11.x (El Capitan), automated cache management, and the ability to auto-stack panoramic and HDR images.
Adobe has rolled out a large number of updates to its Creative Cloud apps and services, with the majority of changes already previewed as part of announcements made at the start of October.

Adobe has made other announcements at its MAX 2015 conference relating to its desktop apps, alongside its earlier mobile app updates. New additions to its Creative Cloud desktop tools are detailed by the company, as well as video support and new purchase options to the Adobe Stock content service, the launch of Adobe Portfolio to create portfolio websites, and changes to its Creative Cloud Photography plan. Outside of the conference, conflicting statements from Adobe employees suggest there is uncertainty about Metal being used in Mac versions of Creative Cloud apps.
Adobe has expanded its app-based offerings with a pair of new mobile apps for editing images while on the move. The addition of Photoshop Fix and Adobe Capture CC to the company's app range accompanies other changes to existing Creative Cloud mobile apps, with many updates for the apps rolling out to users today.
Adobe's latest updates to its Creative Cloud have been revealed, with new additions accompanying mainstay apps. Improvements to the main app suite including Photoshop CC, Premiere Pro CC, and After Effects CC arrive alongside new mobile apps, with a large contingent heading to Android, while the new Adobe Stock is a marketplace for various assets useful to design projects created within Creative Cloud.
[Updated with correction to erroreous CC subscription requirement] Adobe has chosen to withdraw its current photo editor for the iPad and Android tablets, Photoshop Touch, as of May 28, but has announced plans for new and supplemental technologies manifested in a number of apps to come later this year.

The new app will be free of charge, unlike the $10 Touch app, and does not require a Creative Cloud subscription.
