Adobe Creative Cloud Innovations Take Creativity from Blank Page to Brilliant

New Capabilities in Flagship Products, Performance Enhancements and Updates to Adobe Stock Allow Effortless Creation

SAN JOSE, Calif. — June 21, 2016 — Taking aim at inefficiencies that slow down the creation process, Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) today launched major updates to its flagship Creative Cloud tools and services. The release includes dramatic new features in Adobe’s flagship applications, performance enhancements across Creative Cloud (CC), and exciting updates to Adobe Stock — including deeper integration within CC and the addition of an all-new Premium Collection of high quality stock content. Spanning across virtually all of the Creative Cloud portfolio, updates in this new release target many of the pain points that designers, photographers and filmmakers face every day.

We have two key goals with this release: saving our customers time and helping them jumpstart their creative engines,” said Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. “Every creative project starts with a blank page and ends with a vision coming to life.
