Adobe, at the annual MAX Conference in Los Angeles, announced a a break from tradition and a new face for its Creative Suite with the new release of Creative Cloud or ‘CC’ versions.
No longer will Photoshop be available in boxed format, or will it be labelled ‘CS7′ for its next release. In fact, it’s just simply now Photoshop CC, and any future updates to the software, big or small, will be available as and when through Creative Cloud membership.

Adobe also announced that the company will only focus creative software development efforts on its Creative Cloud offering moving forward. While Adobe Creative Suite® 6 products will continue to be supported and available for purchase, the company has no plans for future releases of Creative Suite or other CS products. Adobe Sr. Director of Product Management, Maria Yap, shares her vision here: http://ow.ly/kRT1J where she states: “We simply can’t sit back when the world is changing so rapidly. Waiting 18 to 24 months to catch up isn’t acceptable for any of our customers. We need to respond quickly to meet your evolving needs and to do so, we have to break from the old way of doing things.”
Knowing that this is a huge change to the way customers can access updated versions of their software, Adobe have released a blog by Jeff Tranberry, Chief Customer Advocate at Adobe, answering any questions you may have: http://ow.ly/kRUNH
