Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fresco Gain New Collaborative Features

Adobe today updated its Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fresco Creative Cloud apps to introduce a new "Invite to Edit" feature that allows for asynchronous editing between collaborators on all devices including desktop, iPad, and iPhone.

There's also a new Preset Sync feature for Photoshop that is designed to let users sync brushes, swatches, gradients, patterns, styles, and shapes on Mac and Windows, with synced brushes coming soon to the ‌iPad‌ version of the app. There's also a new Rotate Canvas option available in Illustrator for ‌iPad‌.

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fresco can be downloaded from Adobe's website, and pricing on the software starts at $9.99 for Photoshop alone and $20.99 for Illustrator. The full Adobe Creative Suite is priced starting at $52.99.

Wow, this sounds like a complete disaster.
How are you going to allow collaboration when you literally can't predict what someone else is going to change?

How are you going to allow collaboration when you literally can't predict what someone else is going to change? This isn't a a simple excel spreadsheet (which collaboration also gets screwed up on), it's hundreds of layers with layer styles, hidden layers, different color workspaces... yikes.
Adobe is well known for all kind of disasters. Agree. To me it looks like great marketing efforts without any substance for designers.

Great news for those who need it. (Not me).

I’d much rather have all Adobe apps as Apple Silicon native (will switch my 2016 16” Pro with an Air when that happens)
