Using the power of Creative Cloud for enterprise, Adobe mobile and desktop apps allow you to capture, convert, and create from anywhere — on any device. Take your creativity from the real world to your digital layouts with Creative Cloud files and libraries.
Capturing art from the real world
Being inspired by art and design around you is the main purpose of Adobe Capture. Take a photo of text, colors, textures, or drawings, and Capture will convert those images into a range of possibilities for you to use in your design projects.
The powerful machine-learning capabilities of the Creative Cloud, named Adobe Sensei, allows Capture to identify fonts, extract colors, and even turn photos of art into fully editable vector artwork. In the example above, a hand-lettered city name is being captured and converted to editable vector artwork for use in Illustrator. Once the artwork has been converted, it can be saved to a Creative Cloud library where it can be used in any application across both mobile and desktop apps.
Sharing assets with Creative Cloud
Your creative assets are available in a variety of ways across the Creative Cloud. Libraries are accessible from any other Creative Cloud desktop or mobile app, as well as from various other services, including Photos, Color, Adobe Stock, online documents, and prototypes.
The example above shows the captured headline being available in the Creative Cloud library panel within Illustrator. Once placed into a layout, Illustrator can access the vector data and provide you with full editing capabilities for the artwork. Edit colors, points, and bézier curves to further customize the artwork for your design project.
