We know in today’s digital age it can be hard to make your company stand out in advertisements, business settings, or on social media feeds. Enter Adobe Creative Cloud. Creative Cloud allows users to create and design from anywhere and even allows multiple users the ability to collaborate on the same project. At first glance, this tool can look overwhelming; but with some practice, we know you will be maneuvering through it like a professional. Here are some of our favorite apps within Adobe Creative Cloud:
Photoshop gives a user the ability to create, edit, enhance, crop, and alter images in almost any way imaginable. This has made Photoshop one of the most popular photo editing software programs used around the world. You can see its work when looking at almost any printed or published photo today.
Photoshop is one part of the Creative Cloud you can purchase separately. At this time, it is priced at US$20.99/month when you purchase it outside of Creative Cloud.
InDesign makes it easy to create anything on paper. The tool allows you to make anything from stationary, flyers, posters and even magazines and books. The templates for all standard sizes will come preloaded into the tool. However, you can always feel free to stray from traditional and make something truly unique. When using InDesign, you can embed links, add charts or graphs, or other images to make your presentation more engaging while also holding more information. You can also purchase InDesign for US$20.99/month outside of Creative Cloud.
Adobe Premiere Pro
Premiere Pro is one of, if not the, top video editing software for social media, television and film. The program allows users to bring together video, graphics, text, and sound to create whatever is needed in the moment. Premiere Pro also allows you to stitch together video of any length, speed, or size, shot on any device to create the perfect video. You can currently purchase Premiere Pro for US$20.99/month if you do not want to purchase the entire Creative Cloud package.
Dreamweaver is a website software offered through Creative Cloud, or separately for US$20.99/month. The software allows users to input, create, or manage code using the simplified coding system. The goal of the program is to make building and maintaining websites easier for the user. Dreamweaver comes with different templates for building blogs, e-commerce pages, newsletters, and portfolios. The program alerts users of errors in code or when displaying on different devices (desktop, phone, or tablet).
Stock is a great feature in the Creative Cloud package. Stock lets you browse through millions of high-quality curated and royalty-free photos, videos, illustrations, vector graphics, 3D assets, music, and templates. This allows users to browse the assets while developing new ideas of their own, or incorporate them into a project they are already working on. Everything in Stock is there with the purpose of helping the user create; because of this, the possibilities with this tool are endless.
Spark is not a program people typically associate with the “top dogs” of Adobe Creative Cloud. However, Spark was added to the plan to make everything else easier. With Spark you have the ability to create stunning graphics, just like in Photoshop; you can quickly come up with your next flyer or newsletter, just like in InDesign; you can even put together quick videos, just like in Premier Pro, but without always having to create the template yourself. With Spark all you have to do is pick a predesigned template and upload your information. It makes the design process easier without losing the integrity of your photos or information. At this time Spark is only available with the purchase of the entire Creative Cloud.
