Adobe MAX is where software giant Adobe likes to make announcements on upgrades as well as new product launches and the 2015 conference is no different with the company announcing it will be shipping two new mobile apps as well unveiling new touch capabilities for its software. Plus, its Creative Cloud applications, such as Photoshop CC, have also seen improvements and new Creative Cloud technology called CreativeSync will soon be available. Adobe Stock also sees improvements with Adobe saying video content will be available very soon. 

 

Photo Editing Apps

From today, Photoshop Fix will be available from the iOS app store and basically, it's an on-the-go image editing app that has a focus on retouching and restoration. We've actually spoken about Photoshop Fix before but back in May, it was known as 'Project Rigel'. Adobe describes Photoshop Fix as a 'serious retouching solution for mobile' which brings familiar Photoshop Desktop features to iPads and iPhones where touch gestures can be used. Android support is coming soon but as of yet, not confirmed date has been announced. 

As well as Photoshop Fix, Adobe Capture CC has been announced which is an app that combines the capabilities of Adobe Brush, Adobe Shape, Adobe Color and Adobe Hue into a single app.

Updates have also been made to other Creative Cloud mobile apps, including Photoshop Mix where users can construct creative compositions. Adobe also said they are working on adding support for Apple Pencil in its apps along with split view compatibility, an option that became available to Apple users in iOS 9.

CreativeSync - Star & Finish Work In Different Apps

With CreativeSync, users can now save all assets created with Adobe mobile apps to Creative Cloud Libraries, plus the assets can be accessed by both desktop as well as mobile apps which now means an image can be opened in Photoshop Fix, for example, then finished in Photoshop Mix. Assets can also be shared with anyone else who has a Creative Cloud membership.

 

Updates To The Creative Cloud Photography Plan - Lightroom Mobile Now Has Dehaze 

Adobe software applications available through the CC photography plan have seen various improvements including Lightroom and Photoshop becoming compatible with Windows 10 touch devices.

The Lightroom mobile app now has the popular Dehaze adjustment available and two Adobe Camera RAW updates have been added in Photoshop. Also in Photoshop you'll find a customised toolbar designed for those who work on photos and an improved user interface that provides high contrast for photos. 

An auto sync function is now available in Lightroom that makes it easier to import workflows and it's also easier to import Photoshop Elements catalogs. Those who are new to Lightroom will now find customised training options available and a targeted adjustment tool, in colour and b&w, can now be accessed in the mobile version of Lightroom along with photo capture. The Develop module on Lightroom Web sees improvements in the exposure, temperature and contrast controls, plus 40 one-click presets are now available. 

More layer support has been added for Photoshop Mix and Adobe Portfolio will also be added to Creative Cloud Photography plan, a feature we'll discuss next.

Adobe Portfolio Makes Its Debut 

Those who have a Creative Cloud membership will soon have access to Portfolio where they can create and customise layouts for presenting images on a site that's responsive, include a personalised URL, password-protection and Typekit fonts. Portfolio is built on Behance which means users can sync Adobe Portfolio to their Behance Projects pages.

 

Availability
Adobe's new and updated mobile apps are available for free download from the Apple App Store and Google Play now. Updates to Creative Cloud desktop software will ship to Creative Cloud members before the end of the year.

 

Adobe Photoshop Elements 

Elements shouldn't feel left out either as towards the end of September, the latest version of Adobe Photoshop Elements was rolled out with new tools such as camera shake removal. Plus, it's available as a standalone product so users don't need a CC subscription to use it. ePHOTOzine currently has a review copy in the office so keep an eye on the review section of the site to see how it scores.
