Adobe has been on a multi-year journey to modernize its dominant creative media software, after shifting all of its apps to the cloud in 2012. There's been a lot of chat about collaborative working, helping designers creating apps and web stuff.
Now, Adobe is ready to make up for lost time. There's some really exciting stuff for photographers. Photoshop for iPad shares the same code base as its desktop counterpart which ensures seamless transitions between devices.
Musicians come in all shapes and sizes.
So far I've only seen a demonstration, but I'm pretty excited. App updates include Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, InDesign CC, Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC, and Dimension CC. Ultimately, however, it will be possible to use Photoshop on your phone.
Of course, Adobe says it plans to add those shortcuts to a future version, along with gesture controls. That means we can anticipate being able to get rid of more unwanted items in images more convincingly.
Today, we announce it to the world - and soon we deliver the first version to you.
You can sign-up for Adobe Project Rush beta here.
There is no schedule for when the rest of the versions will launch, and The Verge notes that the video-focused features, such as the Timeline panel that you'd use for making GIFs, are left out for now. That sounds useful and time-saving. Adobe knows that there's a niche to fill, and they're aiming to fill the gap. The monthly price for an individual for the Premiere Rush subscription is $9.99, while the Premiere Pro subscription is $20.99 per month. More storage can be purchased if required. There's also a "Premiere Rush CC Starter Plan" trial available for free that gives customers access to to all the features across desktop and mobile, but only allows for three project exports total. Previously, there were a number of smaller apps with limited features but now they aim to bring a fully loaded version of Photoshop to the mobile. It also uses Sensei-Adobe's umbrella term for the AI it's building into its products-to do things such as automatically and instantly perform the sort of masking of an image that used to take hours of manual labor.
