Demo Roundup of the Photo Features and Apps from Today’s Creative Cloud Release


Earlier today, Adobe announced a collection of upgrades, updates and new releases for its Creative Cloud platform. Briefly detailed in our coverage of the announcement, Photoshop CC received a number of improvements, Lightroom Mobile received an iPhone version, and Adobe announced a new iPad app Photoshop Mix.

But that was just an announcement, and so to properly introduce you to a number of these features, we’ve compiled a demo/walkthrough collection that shows each of these new features and apps in action.

The videos are broken into three separate categories: Photoshop CC, Lightroom Mobile and Photoshop Mix. I’ve included a quick snippet about length and what it demonstrates above each video.

    Truly, I wish Adobe would go back to selling disks with complete versions of their software instead of this subscription plan.

  • Tor Ivan Boine

    I wish I could travel back in time.
    sometimes we dont get what we wish for, so we just have to deal with it :)

  • Mojo

    HA! Too true.

  • OLombo man

    will this be an UPDATE.. or do i have to download and manually install the CC 2014 versions?
    there is no update for photoshop when i connect too adobe. :(

  • Trevor Dennis

    I like the subscription model because it spreads the cost, and I am definitely paying no more than I did for updates. I like the regular updates, and 14.2 was already way better than CS6, and that gap will keep getting wider. But I am not terribly excited about the new features in Photoshop so far. (I have a full subscription, but have not downloaded the other CC (2014) apps yet.) I asked myself if I would pay serious money for CC (2014) if it were a perpetual license, and so far, the answer is no.

    There is lots of confusion on the Adobe Photoshop forum. How do you install Extensions? Lots of crashes when accessing new features….

    The most positive thing IMO is opening up TypeKit to everyone. I’ve been using it for the last year, and love it to death. Best font manager I have ever used, and stand out professional font families with lots of weights. Be sure to check it out if you have not used it before.

    It’s a seperate download..

    FIVE MAJOR UPDATES since starting the subscription model? What is she smoking?!?! This is the FIRST update that can be called major since CC was launched, and even that is a stretch…

  • Tor Ivan Boine

    sigh. why couldnt they just update the app?

  • OLombo man


  • OLombo man

    this is so stupid… that means messing with plugins and stuff again.
    so what is this cloud stuff worth?
    NOTHING…… as i always said.. but im forced.. oh well.

  • James Brown

    I feel quite the opposite. All of the updates listed above are currently downloading to my computer. I don’t have to spend any more money to upgrade to the latest version….

  • Rob Elliott

    I started Creative Cloud with CS6. This is the 3rd numbered verision and there were at least two significant changes with CC since it was launched.

    I now have three different versions of photoshop on my Computer all from my Creative Cloud Subscription.

  • Rob Elliott

    My guess is future proofing.

    In the future people’s computers will eventually not be able to run CC without a upgrade to their hardware. but sandboxing new versions (think of this as CS8) it allows you to receive support and the like to an older version separately, while still using the software.

    It also allows for future legacy “retirement” licences to long time CC subscribers (which is a theory of mine)
