With this major 2014 update, Adobe has decided to put in the year together with the software name in the window’s title of the application. For example, in the window’s title, it now says Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 instead of just Adobe Photoshop CC.

Desktop Apps Update

New Mobile Apps

Creative Cloud SDK
Adobe’s new Creative SDK [12] is a software library that enables developers to tap into Adobe’s creative technologies to build mobile apps. Examples include, browsing files stored in Creative Cloud and extracting elements from PSD files; Adobe’s “Touch Slide” software for straight-line drawing; and cloud image editing services like Content-Aware Fill and Upright. Adobe Photoshop Mix utilizes these new APIs and offers some of Adobe’s best imaging technology for applying Photoshop looks and compositing images. Adobe Creative SDK is initially targeted at the delivery of iOS applications and is currently being tested by select developers. A beta launch is expected in the coming months.

Creative Cloud Photography Plan
The new Creative Cloud Photography Plan [13] is available at S$13 per month and it will give you access to Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5. In addition, you will get access to Lightroom for iPhone [14] and Lightroom for iPad [15] as well.
