Adobe Will be Revealing the ‘Next Evolution of Creative Cloud’ at June 18th Keynote

adobeteaser

Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen, because “the next evolution of Creative Cloud” will be revealed during a live-streaming keynote on June 18th at 1pm Eastern, and it promises to be a doozy of an announcement.

So far all we have is a small teaser, which is joined by a short description that mentions “all-new desktop and mobile apps, new creative hardware, hundreds of new features and other surprises.” We already know that some of what will be talked about will very likely be the touch-friendly Photoshop CC iteration the company showed off at a recent Microsoft event, but the announcement promises much, much more than that.

So mark that date on your calendars or, if calendars aren’t your thing, head over to the Creative Cloud website to sign up for an email reminder.

    more stuff to screw the dumb to buy into subscription?

  • Ayden Gotzmer

    Can they just fix the bugs in the program and stop changing things that don’t need changing?

  • Clayton Finley

    because paying $10 a month is so much more dumb than pirating or paying hundreds for the software right?

  • http://www.bradtrent.com Brad Trent

    Pay $10 a month (Photoshop only if you got in early) for the rest of your life and get back to me….

  • Clayton Finley

    photoshop and lightroom for $10 a month, plus the latest versions, vs being stuck with your old outdated version? seems fair to me. And if you complain about ‘not owning’ the software, fun fact: even the old physical cd’s, you still only owned a license to use the software, not the software itself.

  • Gene

    Yeh. $10 a month to rent for three years is sooooo much cheaper than
    upgrading for $150 every three years and owning the software. My initial
    purchase was an upgrade from Elements 15 years ago. My CS6 works
    whether I am online, no matter if their Cloud is down, and whether or
    not I send in my “rent” check. Why do consumers seem so short sighted?
    Just worrying about the cost this month. Or profits this quarter. How
    about the long-term?

  • waterengineer

    It won’t be $10/month for ever….or for long…. Expect a “price adjustment.”

  • PeterG

    kiddos.. you are brainwashed.. thast teh main problem.
    nothing is for free.
    try to open your old projects (not tif or JPG files) in a few years when you chanceld subscription. i can still install my OWNED AE wheni need to open old projects. im now using NUKE.
    you won´t be able.. and that´s only one part of the problem…. but as i said your to &%$$ to see it.

  • PeterG

    and what is the actuall difference you clown?
    i can still use my old software i payed for 10 years ago.

  • l0k

    I thought the subscription model was soppused to mean lots of small updates, not big announcments?

  • Ridgecity

    As long as they announce the feature “You can work on your job even if our servers are down” I will be happy.

  • PeterG

    lol…yeah good joke after the last experience.
    tell that to the people who had no access to fonts in their projects and other problems when the server went down last week.

  • Clayton Finley

    the difference being that the newer software has a crap ton more features, stability, and user control? seems like a big difference to me.

  • Matt

    Ya, it was not $150 every three years. It was more than that.

  • Matt

    No need to start name calling. You need some perspective if you obsess over software so much that you need to insult.

  • michael p

    PeterG i think you are speaking out of your ass…… unless you are able to keep your mac/pc working for the next 20 years and not install OS updates, sure you can keep using that copy of PS all you want. BTW…. JPEG & TIF files can be opened in almost any photo program even if they originated in PS. Now if we are speaking about layered TIF files, that may be a different story if you are using layering effects. now i’m getting side tracked… I was opposed to paying a monthly fee when CC first came out. I currently have a copy of CS4, CS6 and LR4. knowing that i will always get an updated version of the software i use daily, sign me up. Not having to pay every year for the newest version of the app, or even wait every 2 years will get expensive. $10.74 for both PS and LR cc, i can definitely afford that. You can keep using the version you bought years ago, I’ll go on enjoying the new adjustments they add every so often to make my day easier. PS from 10 years ago, that puts you between PS7 and ADOBE CS 1. I’ll stick with CC. To Gene: you cannot compare PS Elements to Photoshop CS6 or CC. Elements does not carry all that PS has to offer, and i’m not talking about video production, etc… down and simple retouching, color, etc…. so in your world $150 would be cheaper every few years, for a slightly watered down product. Subscription isn’t for anyone, but if all you need is PS, maybe lightroom. $10 a month is cheap for the long haul. Buying the suite is expensive, i should say was expensive since Adobe is no longer making CS anymore. homework assignment: Adobe Photoshop CS6 + LR if you need organization (or raw workflow) = total purchase every year. tell me who makes out better? the guys who would need to purchase every year or the guys who got in early and bought into the subscription model.

  • Matt

    That is kind of funny in a way. You want bugs fixed but do not want to pay? Isn’t that kind of like a client asking you to reshoot or reedit a photo without paying for your time to do that? Of course assuming that the photo was accepted and used by the client.
    And, why do you not need new ways of editing photos? A lot of the new features reduce your time on a photo and usually gets better results. IMO the current state of photo editing is not that great, still have to develop better tools.
    I can understand frustration in adapting new work flows.

  • Matt

    It will be interesting to see what they come out with. The touch interface is something that is badly needed. I hope that they looked long and hard at the snapseed interface. I love that interface. It gives me enough tools and an intuitive touch interface to quickly touch up images (basic touch ups). Now, their file handling sucks, but that is an iOS issue.

  • http://www.bradtrent.com Brad Trent

    Clayton…I don’t know you , but I can only assume you jumped on the Cloud vs. Non-Cloud discussion late in the game, otherwise you would understand why there are still a whole mess off folks not thrilled with Adobe’s monthly service charge . As someone who lives and dies using layered Photoshop TIFFs, I don’t look forward to the day when if I want to stop paying Adobe a monthly tariff…whatever the adjusted price may be at that time…just to open, view and possibly alter my life’s work, cuz that will be impossible without Photoshop. Nobody with more than a base understanding of how computer hardware & software works expects CS6 to keep working ‘forever’, so if you fast-forward a couple of decades, unless somebody comes up with a way to open all those layered files without using Photoshop, then a lotta people will just have to keep paying Adobe a ‘tax’ for the privilege.

  • Scott

    We are announcing that the cloud will be down for a month, in order for us to get ready for the big announcement. we are also extending our cs3 offer another two months.

  • Ridgecity

    I wonder if no one got fired that week.

  • Scott

    Actually, if you got photoshop, it was indeed $150 every time. I was on photoshop since version 1.0

  • pgb0517

    Only if you chose the upgrade.

  • pgb0517

    I’d love to see their cloud crash during the demo.

  • PhotoShark

    To the folks who are still angry about the subscription, its your fault for staying with Adobe. Want to make a splash? Leave Adobe in droves and throw your support onto another software company. I get so sick of the whining. The narrow mindset of consumers is not just thinking that CC is the best option, its thinking that only Adobe can meet our needs. I love my Adobe software, and Ive never had problems with servers going down. Just shut up, stop whining, or do something else. Do something productive instead of going on a comment thread of a photography blog to complain about the cost of doing business. Suck it up and go with the flow of technology or be left behind.

  • George Johnson

    They’ve bought some new servers and hired a proper IT team to make sure the service stays up?! Seriously, if they extend the period between the times you need to “report back in” up to 6 months, that would be a start and I might think about signing up. Yes I appreciate you can get updates and new features with the CC version but I’m happy with the old CS6 for the next year or two.

  • Alex Tardif

    My math could be off (completely, even, lol). But say it’s $50 a month, or $600 annually to have all the tools you need to land… I don’t know… $60,000 in annual business, if you’re a pro photog? You know you’re buying $ thousands worth of gear probably every single year or every other year. Why is it so hard to accept the cost of software? One that is just as essential in your toolkit as any lens, body, or a strobe, and provides a hassle-free experience (most of the time) at that.

    I’m not a pro, barely even “advanced amateur”, but the set-it-and-foregt-it approach by CC is well worth the $$ for me. Cost of doing business or having an expensive hobby is the way I look at it.

    And the arguments like “I can still use my 10 year old software, or I can still open my work that’s 10 years old”. Get real, son. Is that REALLY what you’re holding on to? Do you REALLY have such priceless masterpieces? Or do you want to use the latest tech (hard or soft) and keep rolling and pay in accordance?

  • Matt

    Really? Over the last 8 years or so my upgrades cost in the $300 to $350 range. I did it every two or three years, but had to also factor in lightroom and dreamweaver. It is about the same cost for a two or three year upgrade schedule as the subscription for more than one program. A little more on the subscriprion, but not much that I would even notice. And now I have access to things I could never afford.

  • Clayton Finley

    then either adjust your workflow or change your profession.
    No one is forcing you to use adobe products.

    If you don’t like it then leave it. I know for me, its much easier paying $10 a month than it is to pay a few hundred upfront, which I would just go pirate anyway.

  • http://www.bradtrent.com Brad Trent

    Clayton…this has ZERO to do with the $10/month and everything to do with the fact that Adobe has not offered an exit strategy for those who pay into “The Cloud” for a long time, then for whatever reason opt out. It is patently unfair to not be able to access files made using their software after you become a casual user. Many people have suggested that after a period of time where a user has paid into “The Cloud”…let’s say four years so that Adobe can get their profit outta you…if they decide to stop paying, their version of the software will still be usable, but locked at the level it was at when they opted out. That way, the software will function as expected, but you no longer have to pay for upgrades and improvements you likely wouldn’t need. If the user then decides at a later date to get back onto “The Cloud”, they would have to rejoin as a new user at whatever the current rate was at that time.

    But I doubt you really give a Goddamn about any intelligent answer thrown back at you, since you’ve already revealed yourself to be the kind of bottom-feeding maggot that would pirate software…

  • Rob Elliott

    it’s easy save in TIFF.

  • Kyle Blunt

    Why would they need to purchase every year? Not everyone needs the latest and buggiest junk. CC runs like pure cr*p on lower spec systems that run CS6 fine, it is definitely no big upgrade from CS6. Why would I need to buy CS6 every year? No matter how you word that, it makes no sense.

  • Kyle Blunt

    But is a long and tiresome process if you have thousands…

  • Clayton Finley

    so… I’m confused. I’m a ‘bottom feeding maggot’ yet you’re complaining about having to give money to a company to use their product? Either way, it does not bother me, as i’m obviously not the butthurt one here.

  • Rob Elliott

    OK the trolls are out all ready.

    CC is a still evolving product when I started using it in December of 2012 it included just Photoshop CS6. In June last year Photoshop CC was released. In November of last year I upgrade to the Photographers bundle and halved my cost and got my Lr5 upgrade for Free.

    These types of announcements are for showing off new features… likely more in depth mobile apps. As well as generate hype.

    The “outage” even though it was sensationalized by an inexperienced writer, was not that bad. The vast majority of those effected went out of their way to have it effect them, or were new to the service. Those that it did effect, have every right to be upset, and Adobe needs to do better, but it was fairly minor, because of the way it works.. if you had CC and it was installed and you kept your files and fonts stored on your local computer, the outage didn’t effect you at all.

    The “if I stop using it I can’t have my files any more” argument… you have several options. Save in TIFF… if you are done the project why would you save it as a TIFF.. the project is done. More so the Project is done, likely you aren’t going to regular go back to a project you did 5 years ago anyway.

    The “Cost”

    this is for new users. Like me that didn’t own Photoshop at all prior.

    IN November of 2012 I had to choose what I wanted to do.. Spend $699 for CS6 knowing the CC was coming. Money I didn’t really have/want to speend. Or Spent $19.99 for CS6 and get CC automatically when it comes out. It gave me a three year buffer to decide if I wanted to keep using photoshop while only putting in $240 for that first year.. if I didn’t need it, or seldom used it.. I could cancel.. no big deal. I could also look at other options. So in December of 2012 I signed up.

    In November of 2013 I upgraded to the Photographers bundle and got my Lr5 upgrade for free while cutting my monthly fee in half. Now it would be mid 2018 before I would have spent the $699+79. Basically 4 full years.. or two upgrade cycles. (assuming the price remains stable) Add in a single upgrade cost of each LR and PS on the old model and that is an extra $199+$79 putting the cost into 2020 before I have spent more then I would have.. and really you can likely knock that back to 2022. because the odds that I wouldn’t upgrade a few times in 10 years is unlikely. (again assuming prices stay stable.. as they did for the most part with Photoshop it self) (if they pick up a million photography bundles that is $120 million dollars a year just from that)

    I still look at Paintshop Pro, and emerging programs like OnOne’s stand alone options. Neither are what I’d like right now.. but are both options and I have no loyalty to Adobe beyond the current use of their software.

    But the reality is.. CC isn’t the horrible thing people like to make it out to be for new users. It’s actually a really great deal.

  • Andy Austin

    Matt, she never said anything about not wanting to pay. So I’m not sure where you’re getting that from?

  • Rob Elliott

    Well then always save a final version in TIFF and use the older version you must already have to open the older files… or you know.. get a month to month on those months you still need it.

    I mean the whole reason you cancel CC is you aren’t using it any more. Thus you don’t need regular access. Much like my High school essays, on Word Perfect for Dos.. that are on a Floppy disk… I don’t even have a floppy drive any more.

  • GeraldPeake

    I tend to wonder if the constant updates to Adobe Flash Player is just another sneaky way of reminding us to ‘sign up for CC’?

  • http://rosscollins.smugmug.com Ross Collins

    I just hope that Apple comes through with v4.0 for Aperture very soon so I have a bolt hole when and if Adobe compels Lightroom users to subscribe to the CC.

  • K. Garang

    I did use my Photoshop CC during the server down. Didn’t have any problem.

  • K. Garang

    Then I guess you’re good with your CS6 until the year 2022 and this Creative Cloud does not concerns you.

  • Mr Hogwallop

    I think Aperture is not really on the list of top ten things Apple cares about.

  • http://www.flyingsuicide.net/ Oj0

    Without trying to be rude, if you have a single downloaded (not purchased) song, series or movie, would you not fall into the same “bottom-feeding” category?

  • Ridgecity

    A lot of people had problems, I don’t know why…

  • Rob Elliott

    When was the last time you opened a AE file over 3 years old?

  • http://www.photoshopcafe.com/ Colin Smith

    You don’t need their servers up to work on your projects unless you are choosing to save the to Creative Cloud which isn’t necessary at all. I store all my work locally like I always did on on dropbox and it works fine without their servers being up.

  • Skeeter

    I already have. ACDSystems is an awesome alternative to 99% of Photoshop work.

  • PhotoShark

    good for you man! Im just so sick of people complaining about CC but acting like they have no choice but to stay with Adobe.

  • Skeeter

    I’m still running CS6 and loving it….but I’ve moved to ACDSee as well….and I’ll be using that instead of “renting” CC. I just don’t like the strings.

  • PhotoShark

    thank you for this comment. i see it as a cost of doing business. Software costs money. big deal. If 50 (or so) a month is a big problem, then you are in the wrong business. And you are so on point about the “10 year old work” part too. My work from 10 years ago, shoot even from last year makes me sick! Haha I never want to be the photographer who is stuck on my past work. I am always trying to look to my next steps.
