ADOBE MAX 2020 Event & Product Summary


The next generation of Creative Cloud

We shared hundreds of new products, products updates, time-savers and other improvements, all available now in Creative Cloud. Here are some suggestions for discovering what will help you be more efficient and creative:

Unleash New Forms of Creation: We released lots of ways for you to create with new power and efficiency. Check out Illustrator on the iPad, a complete reimagining of Adobe Illustrator for the mobile age. And try out Neural Filters and Sky Replacement in Photoshop, which harness the artificial intelligence of Adobe Sensei to help you make sophisticated edits in just a few clicks.

Accelerate Collaboration: We’re making Creative Cloud your creative system, a system that helps unite teams working remotely and ensure they’re all using the same colors, brushes, images, fonts, and more. You can now build XD design systems right in Creative Cloud Libraries, making it easy to share assets with your whole team. And Libraries now extend into Adobe Spark, our easy-to-use app for making social posts, webpages and videos, and into your favorite productivity tools, like Microsoft Teams and Google Workspace.

Level Up Your Skills: More and more creatives are recognizing the need to improve and expand their skills and we have lots of resources to help. First is Adobe MAX itself. There are hundreds of hours of deep-dives into Creative Cloud tools from Adobe experts and influential creatives available on demand. And explore Behance.net/Live for even more live and on-demand instruction and inspiration. And if you want to share your own techniques, try livestreaming right from Fresco, Photoshop, or Illustrator.
