What Do You Get With Adobe Creative Cloud

There is a new way to use AdobeR products which may make the high price of software less of an issue for those on a budget. Adobe's Creative Cloud has much to offer for a monthly subscription. Your Creative CloudTM membership has file storage, device synching and file sharing features that can be great for designers who need to share files with their design team and clients. Along with the Creative Cloud (previously Creative Suite) software which you can download onto your computer and use for the duration of your membership, you will also have first access to the newest additions to the software.

Publishing your projects has become a very complicated process with the variety of target end users including desktop, mobile and web. With Creative Cloud, you will get Adobe Business Catalyst for hosting and publishing up to five websites and the use of the Adobe TypekitR designer fonts. For publishing to the iPad and other mobile devices, you have the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite Single Edition.
