Adobe has officially released Creative Suite 6 and the new Creative Cloud.  CS6 includes the popular line of applications from Adobe such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, and many more.

There are way too many new features and improvements to list, but Adobe focused on these areas:

  • Application Performance. The Mercury performance work we started a couple years ago has now made its way to our imaging, video and illustration tools.
  • Enhanced User Interface. Our tools are increasingly enabling direct, on-canvas editing of your content.
  • Efficient development for Multiple Devices. Our tools are taking a practical approach to creating responsive content, so your web sites or apps look great regardless of the device or orientation they’re viewed in.
  • Adobe’s unique secret sauce. The stuff that make things previously impossible suddenly possible.

The new Creative Cloud is a new service that – for a monthly fee – allows you to have access to all the applications in Creative Suite 6 and a host of other features as well.

Creative Cloud features:

  • Great Tools. Members can download and install all of our CS6 tools and can use them even when disconnected from the internet. Members also get access to Muse (our new HTML5 tool for designers) and Edge Preview (our new HTML5 tool for interaction designers). They also benefit from deep integration with our touch tools like Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas.
  • Storage and Sharing. Members content can be automatically synchronized across of their PCs, mobile devices and the cloud. The files are accessible from anywhere, on any device and easily shared with colleagues or clients.
  • Publishing Web Sites and Apps. Members are able to host up to five websites for free and will be able to create and deploy digital brochures and catalogues to the iPad and iPhone.
  • Ongoing Innovation. We view the Creative Cloud as a journey and intend to update its services often. Members will be guaranteed to always have access to the most up-to-date products and services all included as part of their membership.

More detailed information will come today at their live launch event.  The Creative Cloud starts at $50 a month, which has some advantages especially for users who can’t afford the entire suite of products at one time.  However, there are obviously some drawbacks as well.  We’ll take a closer look at the Creative Cloud soon.
