New Moleskine notebook made specially for Adobe apps and iOS

Posted by Tom November - 23 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

As far as demographics go, this new product is bang on target – we all know one or two Moleskine-toting, iPhone and iPad-using ‘graphic artists’, illustrators or serial doodlers. Some might even use the ‘h-word’.

Tick one Christmas present off your list – this is what you’re getting them. The new Moleskine notebook uses dots on the corner of each page to let the accompanying iOS app to capture the page and import it into Adobe Creative Cloud, where it becomes a bitmap JPG and a vector SVG for Illustrator.

Looking at the image, it does a nice job of transferring doodles to digital and it’s a novel gift to boot.

The hardback notepad is 8×5-inches and has 160 pages. It costs £25.50, which should include the app too.

Adobe Photoshop on Chrome OS is working, only educational institutions have access for now

Posted by wicked November - 21 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off


In September, Google and Adobe announced plans to bring Photoshop over to Chrome OS. The project has actually been going on for nearly two years and, today, Photoshop Streaming has made its way to the Chrome Web Store. For now, only educational institutions have access to Photoshop Streaming. The testing period will last for six months and then it is fair game for anyone to use. Adobe did provide an explanation as to how Photoshop on Chrome OS works.

The application Photoshop Streaming running on a Chrome OS device connects to a remote server on Adobe’s end. What is this server doing? Running the full-fledged desktop version of Photoshop. The server is recording video of the desktop version and mirroring it for the Chrome OS user. So, in actuality, you are virtually using Photoshop. Any movement and clicks made on your end are instructions sent to the server.

At this point, because Photoshop Streaming is not fully complete, files from Google Drive are only compatible. Remember, this is a cloud solution for Photoshop users and doing so with Google Drive files makes sense. Also, 3D functions are not quite operable. These are things Adobe is looking at and will continue to work on through the testing period and beyond.

Aviary releases updated Photo Editor, now under Adobe

Posted by wicked November - 14 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

When Adobe bought Aviary a few months ago, fans of their photo editing app were a bit excited to see what it would mean for their products moving forward. Well, the wait is over as the updated Photo Editor has finally been released on Android. It brings with it syncing capability with Adobe’s Creative Cloud, as well as a hose of initial offer freebies and tools that should make mobile photo editing enthusiasts ahappy.

Of course one of the first things that Adobe has brought to the app is syncing all the files and photo editing supplies onto their Creative Cloud. Because of this, you will also be able to use all your stickers, effects, frames and other tools when you use the app on your other devices, as long as you sign in with your Adobe ID. One of the best things about mobile photo editing is having on hand all these tools that you used to only be able to do when you were on your desktop or laptop.

Now you can use things such as overlay features like stencils, stickers, frames, etc to make your pictures more exciting. With Aviary’s updated Photo Editor, you will also be able to place light or dark vignettes over your photos, as it was one of the most requested additions from previous and existing users. You can also customize the vignette’s size, shape and intensity.

Usually, these effects and tools would cause you a load of cash, even though the app is free. But as an initial offer, Aviary will be giving away these editing supplies for free for the rest of November. So that’s over $200 worth of stickers, effects, frames, overlays, etc. Not a bad deal as you’ll be able to keep all the tools in the Creative Cloud forever. So go ahead, download or update your Photo Editor from the Google Play Store. But since this is still in beta version, you need to be part of their Google+ community to be able to become a tester.

Adobe Creative Cloud now in preview mode on Android

Posted by wicked October - 7 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

For designers and creative people that are dependent on Adobe’s suite of products (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, etc), it can sometimes be a pain to work mobile-wise, as you often cannot carry those programs and the files on your smartphone or tablet. Adobe has now shown a sort-of workaround to that with the launch, or at least preview, of the Adobe Creative Cloud for Android devices.

Now don’t get that excited and think that you can actually work directly from your mobile device. They actually haven’t reached that point yet. But what the app does is it allows you to browse and preview your Adobe files that are saved in their very own cloud storage. You can also organize the files that are stored in there, so you can manage your creative projects from the app itself by sharing it with other members of your team.

So, for example, you are going on vacation but would like to keep a close eye on the designs for an upcoming advertising pitch for a major brand, you can ask your graphic designers to upload their working files from Photoshop and Illustrator on the Creative Cloud. Then you could view them, make comments and suggestions (but probably through your messaging app of choice) so you can let your team know the changes or improvements that they can make to the current designs.

The Creative Cloud is subscription-based, but if you sign up for a free account, you get 2GB of cloud space as well as trial access to all creative tools from Adobe. However, it’s still just working on mobile phones as of now, and most creative people would probably prefer to view designs on tablets. And since it’s still on preview mode in the Google Play Store, you can expect a few bugs and kinks for now. But if you’d like to sample how the app works, you can download it for free (subscription isn’t free though).


Adobe releases preview of Creative Cloud for Android

Posted by wicked October - 6 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

AdobeCloudWhen Google and Adobe first announced that Photoshop would be coming to a Chromebook near you, everyone jumped for joy. OK, most people with Chromebooks looking for the image editing app to come to ChromeOS did. Well, today Adobe is adding more to another of Google’s OS’s —Android —in the form of a file management program called Creative Cloud (preview).

As the name suggests, the app is a preview file management app that links you to Adobe’s Creative Cloud. With it, you’ll be able to view and manage your cloud based files including both AI and PSD files. For vector files, the app will render the file rather than show the actual vector file. It also seems to unlock new tools in your favorite apps, although we have no idea what those features are. Given that its a preview, not all the features are live but you can use the app to upload files to your Creative Cloud account.

Speaking of Creative Cloud accounts, you’ll need a free CC membership. With it you’ll have access to trial versions of Adobe’s suite and the added bonus of 2GB of storage in the cloud. Given Adobe’s sporadic and sometimes non-existent update structure we may not see an update for a while, even if Adobe promises regular updates, but hopefully they stick with this app. We have the QR Code and download link for you below.

Adobe Photoshop now on Chrome OS

Posted by wicked September - 29 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off


As Chromebooks become more popular, demand for access to programs that users are familiar with on other platforms is going to continue to grow.  Today it was announced that Adobe has decided to jump on board with Chrome OS by making their Creative Cloud, including a streaming version of Photoshop, available on Chromebooks. Although many of Adobe’s applications may be familiar to users as software that has to be downloaded and installed on a computer, the company has been pushing more features and services into the cloud. One of the benefits it appears is making the tools more platform-agnostic as seen with this latest move by Adobe.

The version of Creative Cloud and Photoshop that is being made available will only be available to U.S.-based education customers who have a paid Creative Cloud membership. In all likelihood though, Adobe will want to make this available to non-educators and outside the U.S. once they feel confident it is meeting customer expectations. Presumably other applications that are part of the Creative Cloud will be joining Photoshop

The streaming version of Photoshop runs straight from the cloud and is integrated with Google Drive. Google points out that the application should be an easy install for IT administrators with a “one-click deployment” to their teams.

Is there any particular application you are hoping will be made available on Chrome OS?

Adobe Photoshop is coming to Chromebooks

Posted by wicked September - 29 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off


Chrome OS is Google’s attempt to bring the focus of modern computing away from physical apps and storage, and instead push it towards a more cloud-centric future. Of course the platform has come under criticism over the years for not being a “true OS and ecosystem” in the way that Windows, OSX or even Linux is. Despite its detractors, Chromebooks continue to gain in popularity and are a great tool for those that spend most of their time using the device for basic word processing, web browsing and web apps.

In recent times, Google has also made some pretty big changes allowing Chromebooks to be even more competitive, such as the introduction of desktop apps for Chrome and the introduction of Android apps to Chrome OS as well. Apparently this is just the beginning, as one of the biggest productivity apps in the desktop world is now making its way to the platform: Photoshop.

As you can imagine, there are some limitations here. First, this is a streaming version and will initially be available only to US-based Adobe education customers with a paid Creative Cloud membership. Adobe also says that this is the same “Photoshop you know and love”, although certain features that Photoshop normally relies on a computer’s GPU for will not be available in this version.

Considering the hardware specs of most Chromebooks and the fact that certain features of Photoshop won’t work with the streaming version, we imagine that this solution won’t exactly attract professional Photoshop users to the platform, but it could still be big news for occasional users or for those that simply want a back-up device for basic Photoshop use. Regardless, this is yet another major step in the right direction for Chrome OS as Google continues to close the functionality gap between Chromebooks and “traditional computers”.

Streamable Adobe Photoshop Arrives for Chromebooks

Posted by Tim-o-tato September - 29 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Chromebook users now have a new program to play with, one with quite a prestige, Adobe Photoshop. Google announced a partnership with Adobe this morning, which will bring the photo editing software to Chrome OS users who currently hold a Creative Cloud membership.

The software is streamed via a data connection to Chrome OS, allowing a user’s work to be synced directly to Adobe’s cloud for access remotely or at your desktop. 

Access is quite limited to begin with, with the software only being available to U.S.-based Adobe education customers with a paid Creative Cloud membership. Over time, access will be opened to additional customers.

Looking forward to using this?

Photoshop Express receives update, adds RAW file support and blemish removal

Posted by wicked July - 12 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off


Adobe knows that the world is evolving to be mobile-centric, so it order to adapt, it’ll have to continue heavily supporting its mobile applications.

As a result, the company has updated Photoshop Express on both Android and iOS to add blemish removal and defogging tools. Most importantly, perhaps, is the added ability to import RAW files for editing. You can do all of this for free — just head to the link after the break to download the app from the Play Store.

Adobe Photoshop Express update brings borders and ‘pet-eye’ fix

Posted by wicked April - 17 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Adobe Photoshop Express for Android is seeing an update, bringing in a few editing features. We can now add borders to our shots, and Adobe has a unique take on red-eye reduction — for pets. Navigation is also improved, rolling in along with the mysterious bug fixes.

Borders are just what they seem — borders. Add a ripped effect to make your photo look torn from a magazine, or something a little fancier. For those interested in mobile editing, borders are a neat addition. It could add something different to social sharing, too — but we doubt it’ll be a widespread thing.

Adobe is also introducing what they call “Pet-eye” reduction. Sounds painful, but it’s not — it’s just red eye reduction for animals. Rather than the actual red, pets typically get a green hue to their eyes when hit at the wrong angle. Adobe is doing for your beloved pet what they’ve long done for you. See? Dogs are people, too.

The update is rolling out now, so be on the lookout for it. A free app, Adobe Photoshop Express is one of the better after-shot editors on the market. Sadly, their quickly losing ground to native camera apps that do a more tha adequate job of photo editing.
