The latest apps released by Adobe are expected to make it easier for users to get their work done on the go.
Adobe launched four categories of apps that correspond in its Creative Cloud service. Kevin Brandon, coordinator of the graphic design program Humber College has been an Adobe program user since 1988 and said, “Adobe is making mobile apps more powerful, and productive. It is so efficient to have the ability to have creative tools with you at all times.” He explains that the new Adobe apps integrate with the user’s desktop counter part applications and adds, “With the release of these apps Adobe hooks you into their month/yearly subscription plan to their Adobe Creative Cloud, this subscription allows you a great opportunity to create and access your design assets in both the mobile apps and your desktop applications.”
Vincent Dylan Defreitas, 21, second year Humber creative photography student enjoys now having the mobile accessibility to the adobe photo apps which help him complete his work. Defreitas mentions that he is able to accomplish just as much on the app as he can on a desktop and says, “ I use all the adobe programs for my course load and it makes it a lot easier to be able to access it (photos.) If I’m not stationary at my desk I can continue my work wherever I am, and get stuff done a lot quicker.”
Erin Riley, 43, part time Humber basic photography instructor believes Adobe could be recognizing their users demanding industry where time is important. “It (Adobe Photoshop mobile app) allows you to make images on the fly. Clients need stuff fast and sometimes you don’t have the time to pull out your laptop,” said Riley.
Although the series of apps may provide great accessibility to one’s work, Riley does not believe it can replace the programs being used on a desktop and said, “At the end of the day you want your work to look good and use tools to allow you to enhance your work.”
