With desktop applications, mobile apps, and a range of other services, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of what Adobe has packed into Creative Cloud. Here’s a quick rundown of lesser-known services included with membership.
Behance ProSite is a companion service that helps artists build graphically rich portfolio websites with drag-and-drop ease, integrated right into Tumblr or WordPress blogs or with an existing domain name. Setting up a portfolio is free, but subscribers will have to fork over another $11 per month to get it published.
For more-traditional websites, Business Catalyst is a hosting platform that makes

The Toshiba 50L7355DB has quite the fight on its hands in such a competitive marketplace, filled with (arguably) more consistently performing competition.
It certainly looks the part, with a silver rectangular stand and black and silver bezel. It’s one of the better specified sets on test when it comes to inputs too, with four HDMI ports alongside two USB inputs and a built-in Freeview HD tuner. There’s no satellite input, though.
Set-up is a bit of a drag
Things don’t get off to a great start during set-up. Tweaking the picture to suit quickly becomes frustrating, with sluggish

Zombies, Brains, and Adobe’s Creative Cloud
In April, Adobe’s Russell Brown brought his Art Directors Invitational Master class (ADIM) to Boulder, Colorado. As Adobe’s long-running «resident mad scientist» (and senior creative director), Russell has led ADIM in various cities since the 1990s, but this was the first ADIM after a five-year hiatus.
This year’s theme involved monsters, zombies, brains, and—the Adobe Creative Cloud. Amazingly, Ed and Marsha Edmunds, stars of the Travel Channel’s TV show Making Monsters, brought in their talented team from Distortions Unlimited to create some outrageously realistic props, including a giant head with its brain exposed, which

Almost no other software has been as instrumental and defining for an industry as Adobe’s Photoshop Suite has been for photography and imaging. Adobe’s famous «graphic editing program» (they get really annoyed if it’s called anything else, especially «image manipulation tool») has gone through several versions over the years, and with its latest iteration, Photoshop Creative Cloud a.k.a Photoshop CC, it has entered a brand new era.
We’ll begin this article with some clarifications. Unlike what most users believe, and what has been bandied about the internet, the new version of Photoshop is not limited to working only with internet

BIGGEST ICE SPHERE
It’s incredible to think that a black hole can be so big that it would take light four days to cross from end to end. But far, far out beyond Neptune’s orbit is something much bigger: the Oort cloud. It’s an enormous region of space encapsulating the planets that stretches 50,000 AU from the Sun to around 100,000 AU in diameter at its outer boundaries: from one side to another it’s about two light years long.
It’s made of water, ammonia and methane ice in the form of icy particles and trillions of larger bodies. It’s suspected

To fully understand the problems of the cloud market in Russia, you must approach to be taken in two ways: by the operators who want to provide cloud services, and by the customers to whom the services are intended.
For operators, the introduction of cloud services means significant investments in hardware and software component in the case of IaaS, not to mention services PaaS and SaaS. It is important to bear in mind that a platform for cloud computing consist of both software needed for the platform, and from the computing components that pretty quickly amortized. The expectation is that

Adobe shoots for the clouds but leaves key features grounded at launch
Last year’s Creative Cloud review advised that Adobe would have to work fast to keep users hooked after the first year, especially for those invested in packaged CS6 software. Little more than a year later, Creative Cloud is now mandatory—and the more things change, the more they seem to stay the same.
While Adobe has mostly delivered on updated desktop applications, the glue holding the whole subscription-based service together remains a work in progress, with key features MIA at launch. Unlike last year, customers are forced to be

INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED PHOTOGRAPHER AND FILMMAKER DREW GARDNER SHARES HIS VIEWS ON ADOBE’S CONTROVERSIAL NEW SUBSCRIPTION-BASED SERVICE
IN ADDITION ТО knowing a thing or two about software, the people over at Adobe certainly know how to stir up a lively debate. No one can deny them their software-making ability — the vast majority of photographers, in fact the creative world as as whole, ‘would grind to a halt without it! However, you’re probably aware that Adobe recently threw the industry a curveball with the launch of Creative Cloud.
The software ship seemed to be sailing along just fine (with Adobe offering

What hinders the development?
Today, cloud computing — one of the most debated topics among IT-specialists. This solution offering to virtualize a number of business processes, is attractive to customers, but as with all new, is a large number of discussions about the advantages, benefits and practical implementation. What is the opinion of consumers about the implementation of cloud technologies in enterprises of different spheres of activity, editors "Technology and Communication" I learned from representatives of the largest food processing, engineering, finance and mining industries.

Adobe rang in 2013 by acquiring Behance, an online social media platform founded in 2007 by co-founders Scott Belsky and Matias Corea. Targeted at creative professionals, Behance sprang to life as a way for graphic artists, illustrators, industrial designers, and photographers to have more transparency with their work.
«Every portfolio is a lie,» Belsky laments. «You never actually know who did the work. So we started thinking, ‘What if we reinvented the portfolio?’ Artists publish their work and can co-own it with those who contributed to it, making it searchable and more organized.»
With more than 1.5 million members prior
