Creative Cloud 2014: The Creative Cloud
All the application updates aside The Creative Cloud Panel thing has a nifty new feature called Creative Cloud Market. It’s under the Asset tab. Here, you can download and use some select assets that are royalty free and okay to use. You can display different categories and sort them, from For Placement, to User Interfaces, Vector Shapes, Icons, Patterns, and Brushes. Honestly, it’s not very good. Hopefully there will be more in the future.
Also new is Adobe.com. When I log into Adobe’s primary website, I am greeted with a customized splash page, just for me! I suspect if I am logged out of Creative Cloud this won’t be the case, but this is neat. I can do some account management stuff here, but that’s interesting to me is the Photos link under Assets. If you click on Photos, your shared Lightroom Collections will show up. You can then filter by flags and picks, and sort and change the order of the images, and even play a slide show. These same collections can also be pushed out to the Lightroom app. Unlike the Lightroom app though, you can’t do edits from the browser. There is potential here. I wonder if someday it can be a hosted gallery, or even a customer approval portal type thing. Pretty neat!
