FREMONT, CA: Adobe announces the launch of a beta version of new components for the Adobe Creative Cloud. In order to address the demands of developers, Adobe has launched a set of tools for its Creative Cloud to enable developers to work across platforms and applications in a simplified, efficient and seamless manner.
The key component that makes up the Adobe’s Creative Cloud platform is the Creative SDK engine. The Creative SDK allows applications to share files between each other, provide direct access to Adobe’s creative tools, ensures compatibility with different Adobe file types and creates a path for sending files to Adobe’s desktop applications providing additional flexibility.
With Adobe integrating with the best creative applications in the market such as Paper by 53, Infltr, Bazaart, Marvel, Moleskine, Generate, ArtRage, Curator, Vintage Design and more, it enables effortless access across different platforms and industry tools.
Web developers can now access the following web Application Program Interfaces (APIs) and components to connect with the CreativeCloud: The Image Editor provides an embeddable, highly customizable, basic photo editor; The Asset Browser (beta) gives access to all Creative Cloud files and libraries; and The File Upload API (beta) enables direct uploads to the Creative Cloud.
The beta components have already being utilized by some partners such as HipChat, a popular enterprise chat and collaboration app, Prott, an emerging prototyping tool, and Bluescape, a sophisticated collaboration workspace used by some of the largest brands in the world.
The Creative SDK also provides components for the Photography needs of the customer. The new Lightroom Photos Organizer provides a photo browsing and importing module for web apps. Adobe announces Animoto, as the first partner to integrate the Lightroom Photos Organizer.
Some other features that Adobe have in the pipeline based on the feedback from beta developers include full Photoshop and Illustrator compatibility, enabling users to render and manipulate .PSD and .AI files; access to Adobe Stock to allow customers to select and use high quality creative assets in other services; the ability to publish projects and works in progress to the Behance community; custom stickers and more filters and frames available through the image editor, synced with Creative Cloud; services to notify developers and users when files within Creative Cloud have changed; hinted Importing through the Lightroom Photos Organizer, allowing for more expressive creations from synced Lightroom collections.
“I have been using Adobe’s suite of products in my business for over a decade. And I have been using Animoto to create videos for social media and my clients for years,” says Jerry Ghionis, an award-winning wedding photographer. “This partnership makes the whole process of creating professional marketing videos and slideshows with my images stored in Lightroom CC so much easier.”
