Adobe has unveiled significant updates to Creative Cloud & Adobe Stock, including dramatic new features in Adobe's flagship applications, performance enhancements across Creative Cloud (CC) and exciting updates to Adobe Stock - including deeper integration within CC and the addition of an all-new Premium collection of high-quality stock content.
"We have two key goals with this release: saving our customers time and helping them jumpstart their creative engines," commented Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. "Every creative project starts with a blank page and ends with a vision coming to life. Today's release of Creative Cloud will help make that journey as fast and productive as possible. From deeper integration of Adobe Stock into the CC experience, to amazing new features like Content-Aware Crop in Adobe Photoshop, this release will expedite the creative process for millions of our customers."
