Adobe Updates Creative Cloud FAQ

by James Cook on January 11, 2012

Adobe Creative Cloud

The Adobe Creative Cloud Facebook page has released the following image showing the Services, Applications and Community features that will be part of Creative Cloud.

Adobe has quietly updated the Creative Cloud FAQ at www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/faq.html.

New information includes:

Applications

  • All Creative Suite Applications
  • Adobe Touch Apps
  • Muse
  • Edge UPDATE:  Currently listed as planned for a future release

This is as expected. As I've previously reported Muse and Edge will be exclusive to Creative Cloud and will not be offered as part of a Creative Suite package. There is no mention of  Lightroom which has been the subject of a lot of speculation so, for now, it looks like it won't be included. UPDATE: According to Adobe Lightroom will be included - eventually. It's listed as "Planned for a future release."

Services

  • File Synching, Storage and Sharing  (currently available in beta)
  • Adobe Business Catalyst® (special members edition)
  • Adobe Typekit
  • Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition (deliver iPad apps such as brochures without writing code)

Community

  • Training and support (I'm not sure how this will affect Adobe's longstanding relationship with Lynda.com)
  • Social Capabilities (currently undefined)

Free Features

According to the FAQ:

Everyone can join the Creative Cloud. Customers will have access to a free membership to explore certain features of Creative Cloud.

Exactly which features will be available without a Creative Cloud subscription isn't specified but good candidates are file synching, storage and sharing.
