Now that we’ve covered the Max Sneaks, we’ll be sharing the new features and updates for Adobe Creative Cloud 2019, that were announced at the Adobe Max Conference. There are many of them, so we’ll be sharing them with you over the next course of articles. These features and updates are all available on Adobe CC 2019, so gear up for some more excitement.

After an impressive opening presentation, made using various Adobe products, Shantanu Narayen delivered a profound keynote speech, addressing the importance of students having access to education that’s not limited to reading, writing and arithmetic, but digital literacy and technology too, stating, “I really believe that students today who don’t have access to educational resources, especially technology and digital literacy skills will be disadvantaged for the rest of their lives. And so, it’s a passion of mine and everyone at Adobe to extend beyond the creative professional and to make this technology and creative tools more accessible to more people.”

At Learning Curve South Africa, we couldn’t agree more. Technology and digital platforms are as much a part of life today, as typewriters were 50 years ago, and the role it plays is growing every day. That is why we strive to provide student access to Adobe CC at the best rates possible, but let’s not get side-tracked… Back to the exciting features and updates…

If you have multiple artboards and you’d like to visualize your design in 3D, Adobe Dimension is the answer. Last year, it was introduced to allow users to easily visualize their branding in a photo-realistic environment. This year, the process has been simplified thanks to the following updates. Working with Adobe Dimesion Software

  • Intuitive Mapping and Matching:
    Once you have your 3D picture open in Adobe Dimension, grab the relevant PSD, for example a PSD containing a logo, from your operating system, and drag it onto the subject on your 3D image. The logo will automatically appear on the 3D subject. From there, you can scale it down, rotate it, and drag it to wherever you want it to appear on the subject. As you do this, Dimension will automatically map and match it to your 3D subject. No warping necessary.
  • Multiple Layered Materials:
    Change material by double clicking on the subject and using Multiple Layers Material.
  • Multiple Artboards:
    Switch between your Multiple Artboards from within Adobe Dimension.
  • Bookmark Camera Views:
    If there are certain views of the image that you like, you can bookmark them.
  • Publish 3D Scenes to the Web:
    Once you’ve rendered your image, you can publish your 3D scene to the web. In this way, you can share the link with clients, teammates or other relevant parties. They’ll be able to view your 3D scene from all angles and see the images you’ve bookmarked too.

We’re sure you’re just as excited to try out these new features and updates as we were. Join us next time to find out which features and updates are available on Adobe Photoshop CC 2019. Until then, happy designing!
