Adobe Creative Cloud Software

Adobe Creative Cloud is a software as a service offering from Adobe Systems that gives users access to a collection of software developed by Adobe for graphic design, video editing, web development, photography, and cloud services.

The Adobe Creative Cloud (“CC” for short) subscription model has been out for a while now, but there is still some confusion on how the software actually works. Because of this, I thought I would write up a post to try and squash the misunderstandings about “the cloud” when it refers to Adobe.

In case you’re not aware, graphic design is a major part of web site design and internet marketing generally. Practically every project I touch needs some aspect of Web or Image devlopment. And I’ve used a number of the graphic design programs available.

When Adobe unveiled Adobe Creative Cloud, I was uncertain. I don’t need to have to be connected to the internet to use my favorite programs all the time.

Turns out Adobe Creative Cloud feels like one of the greatest web development tools ever. My life has been changed for the better. So, why is Adobe Creative Cloud worth the $50/mo investment to me? Let me tell you …

How Adobe Creative Cloud works:

When subscribing to the entire suite, I get the Adobe Creative Cloud Installer, which is the hub for all of the Adobe Programs. As long as I have an internet connection, I can download as many of the Adobe programs as I need (keeping in mind that they can take up a lot of space and memory on my computer). And, as long as i’m connected to the internet, you use the Installer to update any programs as necessary. In addition to basic Photoshop applications, I get tremendous video and audio creation tools. Plus, applications geared towards mobile web projects.

Note: I don’t need to be connected to the internet to use the programs after I’ve downloaded them. I can’t install updates when off-line, but I can do whatever graphic design projects I need, whether I’m online or not.
