If you're like me, you've been glued to your screens today, checking out what is new in the Adobe family, over on AdobeMAX. With a passionate initial keynote speech, we've been given a great look at what's coming for the newly titled Adobe CC (Creative Cloud) family! Don't worry if you've missed it, the keynote presentations are available online to watch over and over again.
So what's new in our favorite vector programs? Check out these fantastic videos from Adobe TV to find out just a handful of what's being added to Adobe Illustrator and InDesign CC. Be sure to tell us which features you're excited to try out! We'll be on the ball come late June with some fresh CC content to show you some creative projects to try out your new tools.
Adobe Illustrator CC - Brush Fans and Typographers Rejoice!
Although Terry White gave us a little sneak peek at what new additions are coming for Adobe Illustrator CC, we didn't get an in depth look at the new tools soon to be available to us. We can't blame him of course, because the initial AdobeMAX keynote was just two hours long and as much as we'd love two hours of new Illustrator goodness, we can't be selfish. However, Rufus Deuchler - Adobe worldwide evangelist, shows us on Adobe TV, the new additions to Adobe Illustrator CC. Check out the videos below to find out more!
