Adobe CC New Features

With an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, you have immediate access to a dynamic range of software for print, web, animation and even video editing! You also get access to Adobe services such as Behance, Typekit fonts, and CC Libraries. Now, designers, marketers, educators and publishers are only limited by their knowledge and not by what software is on their computers.

While this course mentions some of the benefits of the Creative Cloud, the focus is on the new features specifically in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. We highlight new features like the Touch Type tool and Package command in Illustrator, the Camera Shake Reduction feature and artboards in Photoshop and in InDesign the Colour Theme Tool and Auto-sized text frames.

The course is suitable for people who have been using previous versions (CS6 or earlier) on a regular basis. 

At City Desktop Training – an Adobe Authorised Training Centre – upon course completion participants receive a Certificate endorsed by Adobe.
