Adobe to Show Next Creative Cloud on June 18
« on: May 28, 2014, 08:31:32 AM »

“Everything new is new again”, or so says Adobe. If you’re a Creative Cloud person, you may want to mark June 18, 2014 on your calendar, as that’s the day Adobe will announce and show their latest and greatest suite of applications.


We’ll see new desktop and mobile apps, as well as some hardware. Adobe plans to stream the keynote and give us a peak at the hundreds of new features.

So much for the cloud allowing Adobe to integrate new features continuously without being bound to certain release dates of updates.

I am sure they could, but even the biggest companies need a little drama, anticipation, PR and marketing!!

Oh, sure they can do that, but it's a little more difficult to get people to pay attention to you that way.

Especially when most of your attention-getting communication is something like, "Hey, uh, we had someone hack our servers and your account may have been compromised. If you could change your password, that would probably be a good idea," or, "We would like to apologize that our servers are down ..."
I'm *this* close to switching to Nikon! I swear - I'll do it! Maybe next month, or in a week, or when they release the D ... oh, look a shiny thing!

I must be the only photographer who relly doesn't care much for Adobe's newest releases. Their recent products have fallen foul of bloat ware and I really don't expect any new headline features to grab me.
I'm a use of Lightroom, but their latest release doesn't work on Windows Vista....which is still supported by Microsoft. So why should I have to upgrade my OS just for an Adobe product?
I have various machines, Vista 64x, Win 7 64x and Win 8 64x...but the newest Adobe LR installer won't run on my Vista box....sigh....I'm bored of this....

I too don't really care for any new CC announcements.  I'm the sort that sticks to what I know until I'm forced to change.  Maybe I'm old fashioned but I value solid performance over flashy good looks.  Spending time figuring out what went where with programs that get updated and refreshed all the time just sucks time out of my day.  So when I actually commit, for example, to fire up PS CS6 finally, I stick with it until I have to change.  Reasons to do so include dramatically improved ACR and/or unsupported cameras or worse still, unsupported O/S.  Not to rehash the old CC vs. everyone else, but when the time comes next, I'll likely go the DXO route and keep CS6 for layer work.

I'm a happy owner of DxO Optics Pro and haven't used PhotoShop since (except for some occasional plugins and effects).

I wonder what video and 3D stuff they are going to add to PHOTOshop this time...

Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Vista???  You are not missing much.  Vista was just a step ahead of WindowsME... On the turd meter, Vista was a double flush... Seriously... Compared to Vista, Windows 7 is a dream... There is a reason Windows 98 lasted a decade and Vista was flushed as soon as they could.  Granted Vista was slightly better than Windows ME, but that is not saying much

Actually Win 7 and Win 8 / 8.1 are built on a Vista engine....neither are new products.
Vista was Win NT 6.0, Win 7 is Win NT 6.1 and Win 8 is Win NT 6.2
There hasn't been a new OS since Vista, all the new ones are shell cometics and a few functional updates. Plus marketing and branding. If microsoft wanted to, they could easily have released a service pack to update Vista to either or the new Operating Systems. There is more commonality between them then there are differences.

Given the performance gains over Vista they are worthy updates.

I almost signed up for CC until I saw what happened to Pye @ SLR Lounge.  :(

Nope. Sorry Adobe, that's unacceptable.

I've been using Adobe cc for photographers for a while now.  Its $10 a month and is great.
 
There has been speculation that the new version of Lightroom will arrive in June.  Lots of people are wondering if it will be a cc version only.  I doubted it, but that might be the case.

"Everything new is new again" sounds to me like, "Same S___, different day."

My thoughts exactly. CC customers were promised updates as soon as they became available. I guess maybe they are only available once a year.

Don't be deceived by Windows version numbers. Because they're not used in marketing materials, they are used in a more "technical" way. Usually they are bumped when there is some big changes in the underlying kernel. That's why Windows XP and 2003 were still version 5 like Windows 2000, although they were big improvements as well. There are also big improvements in 7 and 8.x over Vista, especially perfromance-wise.
But one reason Vista gets very little support nowadays is it is very little used, its market percentage is in the single digit range. Thereby developers prefer to target 7 and later, and take advantage of some new good features not available before. Even MS Office 2013 requires 7 or better, despite being Vista still supported, but I guess not for too long. Expect most new software drop Vista support soon, especially now XP has reached is end-of-life - what was written to run on XP would have run on Vista also. Especially for graphic intensive applications (but not only), 7 and later are far better than Vista.
