The 2015 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Is Here

 

What’s new?

Of course we never hold back on bringing you the latest cool features. This Creative Cloud release includes new Adobe magic and incredible performance boosts to your favorite desktop apps. The companion mobile apps bring that Adobe magic to your devices, and now there are even more ways for you to use the powerful, connected mobile-to-desktop workflows to create your best work. Due to popular demand, we’re adding two new iOS mobile apps to Creative Cloud, and Android support for four of our most popular mobile apps.

And to further accelerate your creative process, today we’re introducing Adobe Stock—our brand new service with deep connections to Creative Cloud and integration into your favorite desktop apps. Search, manage and purchase from 40 million curated Adobe Stock images directly within the new CC desktop apps.

At the heart of Creative Cloud is Adobe CreativeSync—an exclusive technology that ensures that your files, photos, fonts, vector graphics, brushes, colors, settings, metadata and stock images from Adobe Stock instantly appear in your workflow right where you need them. CreativeSync lets you start your creative work on any device and seamlessly pick it up on another. From initial idea to finished work, CreativeSync is the engine that lets you create wherever you are.

More Adobe magic and huge performance improvements in fifteen desktop apps:

  • In Adobe Photoshop CC, Artboards lets you make multiple layouts of different sizes in a single document, and the new Device Preview shows how designs and interactivity will look and adapt on mobile. The Healing Brush, Spot Healing Brush, and Patch tools have been turbocharged with Mercury Graphics Engine enhancements, so you get results up to 120 times faster than you would if you were using CS6. And be sure to check out the new Photoshop Design Space (Preview Technology), a streamlined experience optimized for designing websites and mobile apps.
  • Adobe Illustrator CC is the fastest version yet—ten times faster and ten times more precise than CS6. Thanks to a new Mercury Performance System boost, you can pan, zoom and scroll faster and more smoothly, and zoom into your artwork to create and edit with incredible precision. And should your system crash before you’ve had a chance to save, just relaunch the app and your work will be restored.
  • Adobe InDesign CC gets its own Mercury performance surge with twice as fast zooming, scrolling, and paging through complex documents. InDesign CC now also lets you publish and distribute documents with a single click.
  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC includes Dehaze, a stunning new feature (also available in Photoshop CC) that lets you eliminate fog and haze from images—even underwater shots. Or you can add haze for artistic effect.
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CC continues to lead the video industry and this is our best release yet. The intuitive and powerful Lumetri Color panel helps you make instant color corrections, and Morph Cut magically smooths and polishes jump cuts and dialogue pauses to deliver a polished interview. With brand new Creative Cloud Libraries integration, Premiere Pro CC takes full advantage of CreativeSync technology so assets like color “Looks” and graphics flow seamlessly between Adobe mobile apps and Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, Photoshop CC and more.
  • Adobe After Effects CC dramatically improves your productivity with new support for Creative Cloud Libraries so all of your assets are at your fingertips. Uninterrupted Preview allows you to adjust a composition’s properties and even resize panels without interrupting playback. Make sure you also check out the groundbreaking new Character Animator, which tracks your movements via webcam and transposes them onto a 2D character.
  • Adobe Dreamweaver CC reduces the effort to create mobile websites with support for responsive design to create production‐ready websites that dynamically adapt to various screen sizes, and includes the ability to preview and test websites on multiple devices in real time.
  • Adobe Muse CC has instant access to the fonts in Typekit, making it easier to get your web designs done faster. Adobe Muse can also integrate blogs, shopping carts, and more using new widgets downloaded from the Library panel.

Shaw Academy - Diploma in Photography

Fully utilize the functionality of your camera and expand your creative potential

Photography is a wonderful form of expression and communication. Whether you want to tell a story, sell a product or just show how beautiful a certain place you visited is, photography plays an essential role in fulfilling your creative vision. Photography is a magnificent art form allowing the avid student to draw with light in the most imaginative of forms. Photographers have quite literally brought light to the world and opened our eyes to the imagery from the furthest corners of our planet. The course offers you the opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge and capture those images you have always dreamed of.

Lessons:

1. What is Photography?

Every minute of the day we are exposed to photography and visual imagery in some shape or form, whether it’s an advertising campaign in your local department store or simply looking at pictures of friends and family on a social networking site. This lesson explores photographic styles and how they are used as a form of communication. Photography enables you to convey a message or a story, sell a product, or to simply illustrate how beautiful a certain place you visited is. Therefore the way you shoot and what you capture determines what your photography communicates. Understanding the different styles will help you identify the subjects you like to shoot and enhance your own style.

Camera Types: We will also dig into the various types of cameras currently available on the market and why you would use one over the other. This will help you with purchasing a camera best tailored for your needs, making shooting in various conditions and situations easier and more enjoyable.

2. Demystifying Camera Functions

Most cameras come with a huge range of menus and functions which can be quite daunting for the user to comprehend. In lessons 2, we will look at the common functions that appear on most cameras and demystify their use. Understanding these functions will expand your creative control and open up new possibilities for your pictures.

Lenses Types: The camera’s lens determines the quality and sharpness of your pictures and allows you to get closer or further away from the subject. We will explore the most frequently used lenses and when and where they are used. Picking the right lens for the scene you are capturing will ensure you get the best shot.

3. Capturing the Light

As technology grows, cameras seem to become more complex by the day with user manuals getting bigger and bigger with each new model. In actual fact cameras are an extremely simple device. The process of capturing and recording light is a reasonably simple process and understanding this process will change the way you think about the complexity of the camera.

Exposure: Understanding the concept of exposure is essential to developing your knowledge of light and will improve your ability to capture the scene the way you see it. We will also discuss different types of light and with the aid of some examples we will analysis various lighting conditions you might find yourself shooting in.

4. Motion and Depth

Motion and Depth are essential to expanding the creative potential of your photography. Controlling and manipulating motion and depth in your images will allow you to add drama and sophistication to your images. Whether you want to freeze an athlete in action or blur the flow of a waterfall, controlling motion will expand your capabilities and allow you to explore new subjects. Lesson 4 explores the camera’s shutter and aperture and examines the role they play in harnessing this creative potential.

5. Composition

Composition is one of the most fundamental elements in a photograph. Composition refers to the placement and relationship of elements within a picture. The arrangement of elements in a scene, the angle they are shot at, and the distance the photo is taken from, can completely change the final outcome of the photograph. They can ultimately determine the difference between a good and a bad picture. Understanding how to explore all of the compositional possibilities of the scene will greatly improve your ability to capture the best photographs.

6. Advanced Composition

In this lesson we will delve deeper in to the subject of composition and look at techniques to guide the viewer’s eye into or around your image. Mastering advanced composition techniques will allow you take pictures that engage the viewer and hold their attention. We will also discuss visual consistency when creating a series of pictures.

7. How Much Light is Enough?

The ability to capture the light the way you see or would like to see it, is essential to making great photographs that have drama, vivid colours and depth. To fully understand how much light you need to capture for a scene, you need a way of measuring how much light is there. Most cameras have a light meter to indicate whether you have too much, too little or just the right amount of light to capture the scene. Lesson 7 looks at the light meter and discusses how it can be used to understand your exposure even before you have taken the picture. Grasping how to read the light meter will help you avoid taking those pictures that are too bright or too dark.

8. Manual Mode - The Relationship between Shutter Speed and Aperture

This is one of the most fundamental topics in photography. The marriage of shutter and aperture in manual mode gives you the most creative control offered to you by the camera. Having an understanding of the relationship between the two, will allow you to expand the potential of your photography and make creative decisions that were not available to you before.

9. The Colour of Light : White Balance

In this lesson we will look at the different colours of various light sources and how they can change the atmosphere and mood of your photographs. We will also discuss how to avoid and resolve colour issues within your pictures.

Focusing: Focus is key for taking high quality photographs that are sharp and capture your vision. Lesson 9 discusses different various techniques and focusing modes available on most cameras. An understanding of focusing will help you keep the viewer engaged with the key subjects in your images.

10. The Digital Image

What is a digital picture? Lesson 10 explores file format and how digital images are constructed. This gives you an insight into the file formats available on your camera which equips you with the knowledge to select the highest quality file format and image size that best suits your purpose. We will also look at some image editing software and the key differences between the most popular ones on the market. Imaging software can take your photography to the next level, transforming your pictures into works of art.

*On demand lessons will be pre-recorded and will be made available at a later date.
