  • Lightroom CC - People View for better organization, search improvements, a Share tab, Apple Photos migrator for importing an Apple Photos library to Lightroom, and several other improvements.
  • Illustrator CC - Support for photorealistic Freeform gradients, global edits, Adobe fonts integration, and a customizable toolbar.
  • InDesign CC - Content-Aware Fit feature and contextually-aware Properties Panel.
  • Dimension CC - New rendering engine with improved performance, and better workflow integration with Photoshop and Illustrator.
  • Adobe XD - New features for creating experiences on voice-powered devices like Amazon Echo.

Premiere Rush, Adobe's new app designed for those who may not be as experienced with video work, is designed to provide an all-in-one experience with tools for capturing video, editing video, and adding color, audio, and motion graphics.

Premiere Rush, available on multiple platforms including iPad, iPhone, and desktop, includes tools for publishing straight to various social networks like YouTube and Instagram, along with built-in access to Motion Graphics templates in Adobe Stock and a one-click auto-duck feature for adjusting music and normalizing sound.

Along with new features for its Creative Cloud apps, Adobe is updating its Adobe Stock app with new search features powered by Adobe Sensei, Adobe's artificial intelligence engine, along with GoPro clips. Adobe Stock is Adobe's content marketplace for photos, videos, images, templates, and more.

Improvements announced in September for Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator, and Audition are also launching today.

Overall, Adobe says that its 2019 Creative Cloud release is designed to provide significant performance and usability improvements, better cross-platform app integration, more intuitive collaboration features and faster access to file assets.

The best email I think I've received in several years was the confirmation from Adobe that my CC subscription ended. I printed it and hung it beside my desk.

If you run a company that uses this software, it is great, no complaints.
