Extending creativity and productivity to all

HP designs and builds powerful PCs and workstations for creatives, from enthusiasts to pros. Today, Adobe and HP are expanding our relationship to provide HP customers in participating countries around the world with a 1-month free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Document Cloud apps, selected specifically for their new HP device – to jumpstart their creation of stunning photos, videos, graphics, webpages, PDFs, and more.

Helping students and educators easily engage in creativity

We are launching a new integration of Creative Cloud with Blackboard Learn, a leading learning management system (LMS) platform for higher education and K-12. Earlier this year, Adobe announced a similar partnership with Canvas, a leading LMS platform used in higher education and K12. Together, these partnerships give millions of students and educators access to their creative tools and projects more quickly and easily than ever, right inside the LMS they use every day.

New AI-powered Photoshop feature

We’d like to thank NVIDIA for their collaboration and partnership on Neural Filters, a new workspace inside Photoshop that introduces new non-destructive filters to help you explore creative ideas in seconds. This new feature is now available to all Photoshop 22.0 customers on all devices, but the performance is particularly fast on desktops and notebooks with graphics acceleration.

New Photoshop plugins

We’re excited to announce the availability of more high-performing and easier to find Photoshop plugins built on our modern extensibility platform. With over 20 plugins built on this new framework, you’ll find plugins that connect Photoshop to your favorite apps, like Dropbox, Monday.com, Slack, Trello, Hive, and Xero, and more coming soon, like Google Drive and others. You’ll have access to Photoshop classics like Pixelsquid and Avenza and powerful tools that supercharge your Photoshop workflows like Pro Add-Ons, and Picture Instruments.

Creative Cloud Libraries API

Creatives and their stakeholders need access to the elements of their creative system wherever they work. Today, the Creative Cloud Libraries API is now available for third-party integration to connect Creative Cloud Libraries to your favorite tools. From Adobe’s tight collaboration with innovators like Google, we’re enabling our users with quick access and use of their brand colors, character styles, and graphics in Google Docs and Slides in Google Workplace, or in Ludus presentations. You can even apply them to AR experiences in Camera IQ or use elements from Libraries when brainstorming in MURAL workspaces. Frontify, CI Hub, and Contentserv integrations also connect Libraries to your favorite digital asset and brand management systems. Integrations to even more of your favorite tools are coming soon, like Tiled micro-apps and many more.

Continued growth in the XD ecosystem

The Adobe XD ecosystem continues to grow with over 250 plugins. New plugins connect XD to popular testing platforms like UserZoom and Maze, and tools that help users manage tasks and stay connected to their teams without ever leaving XD, like Wrike and Zoom, with Microsoft Teams and others coming soon. The Adobe XD extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code also lets developers work with design systems without ever leaving their editor.
