Adobe a lansat astazi noile versiuni ale programelor sale de editare foto si video, iar suita va fi comercializata incepand de acum sub denumirea “Creative Cloud (CC)”. Astfel, actuala versiune Adobe Photoshop CS6 va fi ultima care va purta cunoscutul acronim, astazi fiind lansat Adobe Photoshop CC.

Strategia Adobe pune acum mai mult accentul pe functiile integrate in Cloud si implica o modificare importanta in ceea ce priveste licentierea: programele din cadrul pachetului Adobe CC nu vor mai putea fi achizitionate decat in baza unui abonament lunar, de 50 USD, care va permite accesul utilizatorilor si la functiile de stocare/sincroniare din Cloud. Totodata, nu vor mai exista doua versiuni (Standard si Extended), Adobe Photoshop CC va include de acum toate functionalitatile, intr-o singura licenta.

Astfel, actuala versiune Adobe Photoshop CS6 va fi ultima de tip “retail”, care va putea fi achizitionata stand-alone, fara abonament lunar. Desi Adobe va continua comercializarea versiunii CS6 cel putin o perioada, compania a declarat ca nu vor mai exista actualizari sau suport pentru aceasta. Va fi interesant de vazut cum va afecta noul tip de licentiere aparitia versiunilor “pirat” ale suitei de programe. Probabil zilele versiunilor nelicentiate ale Adobe Photoshop CS6 sunt numarate…

Desi cel mai ieftin abonament lunar pentru suita completa Creative Cloud este de 49.99 USD / 61.49 Euro (si poate ajunge chiar si pana la 169.99 USD pe luna), exista si o oferta speciala pentru cei care au achizitionat deja pachetul Adobe CS6. Acestia vor putea descarca noul Adobe CC pentru doar 29 USD / luna (sau 24.49 Euro). Cine alege doar un program (de exemplu, doar Adobe Photoshop) va plati doar 19.99 USD / luna. Programele vor fi disponibile comercial incepand cu luna Iunie. Preturile valabile in Europa sunt aici.

Problema celor care fac update de la CS6 la CC si beneficiaza de oferta de pe siteul Adobe este ca intreruperea abonamentului nu va duce la reinstalarea licentei CS6 initiale (odata facut upgradeul licenta veche de CS6 se pierde complet….). Asadar, ramane de vazut cum va fi noul sistem de licentiere adoptat de fotografii profesionisti dar si de amatori, avand in vedere faptul ca “inchirierea” software-ului nu este o solutie vazuta cu ochi buni de majoritatea utilizatorilor….

Top 5 functionalitati noi aduse de Adobe Photoshop CC

Adobe Photoshop CC vine cu imbunatatiri majore fata de versiunea anterioara (CS6), capul de afis fiind adjudecat de noua functie Camera Shake Reduction, demonstrata de Adobe la inceputul acestui an, care permite imbunatatirea claritatii imaginilor “miscate”. Totodata, nici noul filtru Smart Sharpen sau posibilitatile de editare RAW pe layere, direct din Camera RAW 8 nu sunt de neglijat.

Intreaga lista de functionalitati noi include in Adobe Photoshop CC este urmatoarea:

  • Adobe Camera Raw 8 and ACR as a filter: Apply new effects to your images with ACR’s new Advanced Healing Brush, Radial Gradient and Upright tools. Adobe Camera Raw’s powerful tools can now be used as a filter, allowing you to use controls like Clarity, Noise reduction and Temperature on any layer at any time.
  • All-new Smart Sharpen: Photoshop CC analyzes image data to maximize clarity and minimize noise and halo. A range of new editable options lets you fine-tune images to get richer textures, crisper edges and more distinct details.
  • Camera Shake Reduction: Save shots you thought were lost due to camera motion. Whether your blur was caused by slow shutter speed or a long focal length, Camera Shake Reduction analyzes the trajectory of the camera shake and helps restore sharpness
  • Intelligent Upsampling: Preserve detail and sharpness while enlarging images for different print sizes. The new upsampling tool retains edge detail and reduces the noise and artifacts normally associated with enlarging images
  • Editable Rounded Rectangles: Creating shapes has never been so flexible. The ability to resize and re-edit shapes after they’ve been created is one of the most-requested features added to Photoshop CC. Web designers will also be able to export CSS data from files to use later.
  • Multi-shape and path selection: Easily grab multiple paths, shapes and vector masks instead of having to sort each one individually.
  • Conditional Actions: Use if/then statements to set up rules allowing processing jobs to make automatic decisions.
  • Expanded Smart Object support: Effects from the Blur Gallery or liquify palette can now be tacked on to Smart Object while keeping the original available just in case.
  • Improved 3D painting: Live previews have been sped up 100x to react quickly to the painting action.
