Adobe Announces New Creative Cloud Enhancements Photoshop

Creative Cloud Libraries in Photoshop CC

At Adobe Max today, Adobe is announcing even further integration between their products in the Creative Cloud. They’re called Creative Libraries and Extract. They’re both designed to help you to create even more projects between Photoshop, Premiere Pro CC, and Illustrator. The emphasis is on both mobile and desktop support. With that said, there is a lot of built in touch support–like on Windows 8 and Surface Pro 3.

What photographers will really care about though has to do with Photoshop CC and Lightroom Mobile. According to the Adobe Press release:

“In the Photoshop family, Photoshop Sketch lets creatives draw with new built-in expressive brushes and enables an integrated workflow with Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC. Updates to Photoshop Mix extend precise mobile compositing capabilities and now includes enhanced integration with Photoshop CC, as well as a new iPhone version. A new Lightroom Mobile app builds on integrated desktop and mobile workflows and includes features to allow clients, friends or family to select favorites and leave comments for photos shared online; and GPS information from iPhone photos now syncs with Lightroom desktop.”

More or less, this sounds a bit like Lightroom is becoming a tool that is extending more onto the web to take on services like Smugmug or other services that let clients see images beforehand. Except in this case, they’re seeing them from the workflow app (or program) itself. Of course, this is all still for iOS devices and those of us that given our swords to Google will have to wait.

More details are after the jump.
