Adobe refreshes Creative Cloud macOS app with Tutorials Hub & better searchOctober 14, 2019
Adobe is changing the way its Creative Cloud apps are presented to subscribers of the service, with a refreshed macOS app rolling out to users with better integration with a user’s libraries and improvements to how to presents tutorials and other assets.
Announced on Thursday, the new Creative Cloud desktop application has been redesigned to be more intuitive. The app is the primary way Creative Cloud subscribers can download tools like Premiere and Photoshop to their Mac, with the updated interface making it easier to see what apps a user has installed and what could be installed.
Along with presenting new apps to try out, users can also browse apps by their type, namely if they are desktop, mobile or web-based apps, as well as their category of usage, such as photography or for illustration work.
To help users get the best out of the tools and apps, a new Tutorials Hub offers resources and assistance on new features and techniques a user may want to try out. Tutorials are also provided on each app’s page.
To manage the user’s Creative Cloud Libraries, the new Library view can show off all the contents compiled by users, including colors, fonts, images, logos, templates, and brushes. The view also simplifies organization of Libraries, such as to gather together brand assets for one client in one place.
Library packs are also offered, with users able to follow public libraries in the same view.
Search has been updated in the app for finding the resources the user needs. Results stem from apps, tutorials, forum posts, and the catalogs of stock images and fonts available as part of the Creative Cloud subscription.
Adobe is rolling out the updated Creative Cloud app in stages, starting with users in France and Germany today, followed by Japan on Friday. Users in the United States and other territories will receive the redesign over the next week.
