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.
We've reviewed a lot of photo apps here, ranging from the practical, Photoshop-esque effects that photographers can make use of, to artistic effects for social media, to the just plain fun. Today, we're looking at a photo app that certainly falls more on the fun spectrum, a clever little app called Tangled FX.
We'll own up to a mistake about this app if you do, too. Our one is that we missed it. We've quite often enthused about the iOS versions and we use those most days, but somehow we just assumed someone else would have already examined the OS X version. It's famous. It's Photoshop for people who don't want to spend Photoshop money, or cope with Photoshop complexity. Now that Pixelmator 3.5 is out, let us put this oversight to rights.
Adobe has shipped updates to two of its image-editing apps for iOS, with each including a large number of minor changes. Both Photoshop Fix and Mix introduce a new intelligent space management system to minimize the amount of space projects take up, while a cap that prevented 2,000x2,000-resolution images from Lightroom being imported has been lifted, with recently-added photos also gaining their own section to make things clearer.
Graphics tablets are a wonderful tool for artists and designers, as well as hobby doodlers and more. Being able to simulate the feeling of putting pen to paper is wonderful, and certainly beats trying to manipulate a mouse or Photoshop tools to do the same thing. If you're looking to grab a tablet, but you're not ready to drop hundreds of dollars on a Wacom, we implore you to think about trying out a Monoprice graphics tablet.
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. Updates have been applied to many of the major apps from the suite, including enhancements to the user interface, support for touchscreens, and support for new formats, along with the introduction of Fuse CC.
The short version: photography semi-pros and pros alike should grab this set of apps that double as plug-ins for Photoshop, Lightroom, and Aperture. The reason we'e cutting to the chase here is that today is the last day you can pre-order the set at a hefty discount: updated Pro versions of the company's five key image-editing apps, plus two other programs, plus some training materials for $90 rather than the $300 buying each app individually would usually cost (or the normal value of the full bundle with its bonus content, $455). Should you get it? If you've read this far, the answer is "probably, yes, and hurry." We'll meet you in the Reviews department to explain exactly why.
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 has released new versions of two Elements editing tools today, bringing new features to both its entry-level photographic and video apps. Photoshop Elements 14 adds a tool to remove haze, something it introduced as part of June's Creative Cloud update, while Premiere Elements 14's primary addition is support for 4K video, allowing users to import the high-resolution footage from a number of 4K-capable cameras on the market.
