Adobe Software

The company is known officially as Adobe Systems for its design and innovation software applications. Adobe has launched many software products in market out of which many are still running successfully. Take a look at the giant list of its product.

Adobe Software

Adobe is an American multinational software company headquartered in San Jose, California. Historically it has committed to creating interactive and creative software products, with a more recent digital marketing software exploration. Adobe is mainly known for its platform of Adobe Flash web software, Photoshop image editing software, Adobe Illustrator vector graphics editor, Acrobat Reader, Portable Document Format (PDF), and Adobe Creative Suite and its successor, Adobe Creative Cloud.

Adobe was launched in December 1982 by John Warnock and Charles Geschke, both set up the company after quitting Xerox PARC to develop and sell a description language for the PostScript website. Apple Computer licensed PostScript in 1985 for use in its LaserWriter printers which helped to spark the revolution in desktop publishing.

Adobe has over 21,000 staff worldwide as of 2019, some 40 per cent of which only work in San Jose. In Newton, Massachusetts, New York City, New York; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Lehi, Utah; Seattle, Washington; and San Francisco and California in United States; Adobe also has major development operations. It has many significant technology operations in India at Noida and Bangalore.

Adobe Creative Suite (CS) is now a discontinued suite of software produced by Adobe Systems for graphic design, video editing, and Web development. Every version comprised of many Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Acrobat, Premiere Pro or After Effects, InDesign, and Illustrator which are the industry standard applications for several graphic design roles.

The very last version of Creative Suite, Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6), was unveiled on April 23, 2012, at a release event, and launched on May 7, 2012. CS6 is the last of the Adobe design software to be physically shipped as packaged apps, as upcoming releases and upgrades would only be distributed via download.

Adobe revealed on May 6, 2013 that CS6 might be the latest version of the Creative Suite, and that newer versions of its creative software would only be eligible through its Adobe Creative Cloud subscription service. In 2013, the Creative Suite products were removed from Adobe's online store, but stayed on their website till January 2017.


List of some Adobe Softwares

Adobe generates a lot of applications that, until now, I consider others unfamiliar with. Many people know about Adobe Reader, Flash, Photoshop and. But those are not the only programs that Adobe is producing. Throughout the past, buying the package was a fairly large expenditure, but in recent years, Adobe has grouped into its Creative Cloud platform all its products. Here's a simple framework for understanding any software program Adobe has to offer.


Adobe Acrobat

Adobe Acrobat is a collection of Portable Document Format (PDF) application software and web services created by Adobe Inc. to view, create, edit, print, and manage files.

The team includes Acrobat Reader (previously Reader), Acrobat (previously Exchange), and Published for many desktop and mobile devices, the simple Acrobat Reader is freeware; it allows viewing, printing and annotation of PDF files.

Adobe Dimension

Adobe Dimension is a 3D visualization and design software developed for macOS and Windows and released by Adobe Systems.

It was launched on 28 March 2017 as Project Felix and had become Dimension on 18 October 2017. Prototypes are not generated in Dimension as opposed to other modeling applications such as SketchUp. Alternatively, it is a photo – based mockup editor where it is necessary to create models, images, and textures in third party software until being imported into Dimension. Once in Dimension, it is possible to assemble models and pictures into structures before making realistic images to 2D photos.


Adobe Fresco

Adobe Fresco is a new iPad sketch and paint app that blends the elegance of your former photoshop brushes with the accuracy of vector brushes, and the new live brushes technology.

Adobe Fresco is a drawing and painting program developed for the new touch and stylus apps. Its collection of Sensei-powered aquarelle and oil brushes — we call them live brushes — is something that anyone with a passion for drawing would enjoy and consider useful.


Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor that was developed and commercialized by Adobe Inc. Production of Adobe Illustrator, originally designed for the Apple Macintosh, started in 1985. The Illustrator CC was published alongside Creative Cloud. The latest version, Illustrator CC 2020, was launched on 24 October 2019, and is the product line's 24th generation. Adobe Illustrator was evaluated by PC Magazine in 2018 as the right program for creating vector graphics.


Adobe InDesign

Adobe InDesign is a software developed by Adobe Systems for desktop publishing and typesetting applications. Products such as posters, leaflets, brochures, magazines, journals, conferences, books, and ebooks can be created using this. InDesign in combination with the Adobe Digital Publishing Kit can also publish content suitable for phones and tablets. The primary consumers are graphic designers and production artists, who produce and lay out periodicals, posters, and print media. It also enables export to EPUB and SWF formats to build e – books and digital media, including digital magazines, and tablet-computing content. InDesign also enables XML, style sheets, and other encoding markups, making it appropriate for exporting tagged text material for use in other online and digital formats. The word processor for Adobe InCopy uses the same formatting engine as for InDesign.


Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a raster graphics software for Windows and macOS, developed and released by Adobe Inc. The software has now become industry leader not only in the editing of raster graphics, but in the whole of digital art. Hence the name of the app has now become a generic trademark, which leads to its use as a verb while Adobe prevents such use.

Photoshop can create and design multilayer raster images, supporting masks, alpha compositing and multiple color models including RGB, CMYK, CIELAB, spot color, and duotone. To enable these features Photoshop uses its own PSD and PSB file formats. In reference to raster graphics, this technology has limited editing or rendering capabilities in text and vector graphics, as well as 3D graphics and video. Plug-ins will extend its feature set; programs created and distributed separately of Photoshop that run inside it and offer new or upgraded functionality.


Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro is a sequence based video editing software created by Adobe Systems and released as one of the licensing program for Adobe Creative Cloud. Adobe Premiere Pro was first released in 2003, and is a successor to Adobe Premiere. It's focused on professional video editing, while the Adobe Premiere Elements, is targeting the mass market.

It's available for both macOS and Windows, while versions for iOS and Android are available to assist you preview the job result directly on mobile devices. XD continues to support wireframing on the website and creates simple, immersive, interactive prototypes with clicks


Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom is a collection of software for image organization and image manipulation, developed for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and tvOS by Adobe Systems. This allows large quantities of digital images to be imported / saved, viewed, arranged, labelled, edited and posted. Unlike Photoshop, the editions of Lightroom are always non-destructive by keeping the original image separately and the edits applied to it. Although it shares its name with Adobe Photoshop, it is unable to perform certain Photoshop functions such as doctoring, making images of text or 3D objects, or changing individual video frames. Lightroom isn't like Adobe Bridge, a file manager. It cannot work on files unless first, and only in known image formats, they are imported into its database.
