Adobe CC 2015: Sync & Stockphoto integration plus clever new functionality and improved efficiency in all programs
Adobe has published its 2015 version of Creative Cloud. Apart from clever functionality in programs such as InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator the most important additions are integrated synchronisation and stockphoto functions. Creative Sync allows you to share files, photos, fonts, vector graphics, brushes, colours, settings, metadata and stock images within all programs within Adobe CC. Stock Images is Adobe´s new service to buy stock photos at a discount. The list of additions and improvements in the CC programs is long. Speed will be the biggest improvement for users in this update which is free for CC subscribers. The 120% improvement in speed in Photoshop results from the integration of Mercury Graphics Engine. Mercury is the new Adobe technology in the newest image processor and facilitates faster processing of complex work with variable data or complicated transparent layers. We hope that downloading of Creative Cloud via the CC Installer has also improved because after three weeks of fruitless attempts and dozens of tips from the help forum we have yet to successfully install Photosthop CC.
