Adobe Accelerates Collaboration with New Creative Cloud and Document Cloud Capabilities

At Adobe MAX – the world’s largest creativity conference – Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) announced the expansion of collaboration tools within Creative Cloud and Document Cloud, enabling new collaborative workflows that will empower creators to meet ever-growing content demands across multiple platforms while working from anywhere. Content now fuels the global economy, and more content is being created by remote teams than ever before, making seamless collaboration critical to delivering content with speed and scale.

According to a recent Adobe study, more than 165 million people have joined the Creator Economy since 2020, and roughly one in four people are contributing photography, videography, creative writing and other content to online spaces. As creators now expect flexibility to work remotely, they are demanding game-changing ways to collaborate with their clients and organizations, whether they are in the same room or halfway across the world.

“Creativity today is a team sport. To deliver a successful project on deadline, a team needs to efficiently share inspiration, assets and feedback,” said Scott Belsky, Chief Product Officer, Adobe. “The innovations we’re announcing today enable seamless collaboration throughout the creative process.”

Photoshop and Illustrator Introduce New Share for Review Collaboration Capabilities

Incorporating client feedback is key to delivering successful projects, and designers understandably want to control what they share with clients during the review process. Now available in beta for Photoshop and Illustrator, Share for Review fine-tunes the file sharing, review and feedback process, providing creators with full control over what they share, and with whom.

  • An industry-first sharing system provides two options: designers can choose to co-edit a live file (Invite to Edit) or share one version of a file (Share for Review).
  • Share for Review allows creators to share a version-specific link to a Photoshop or Illustrator file, then see reviewers’ comments and conversations automatically flow back into their app, eliminating the need to juggle between tools to address feedback.
  • Creative teams can use Share for Review to complete work faster and with greater creative control, deciding which version of a file to share, and when to push changes.
  • Collaborators do not need to sign up or sign in to comment.
  • Reviewers can highlight specific parts of images or illustrations for comments.

“Share for Review keeps me focused on my workflow, so I can stay in the zone and spend less time fetching feedback,” said Dan Flores, 2D illustrator and visual designer at Azalea Creative Group.

Adobe Previews World’s First Camera to Cloud integration with RED Digital Cinema and Fujifilm

Now used globally by more than 4,300 productions, Adobe Camera to Cloud (powered by Frame.io) ignited the transition from external drives to cloud-based camera workflows, and fundamentally changed the way video is created. Today, Adobe is previewing new Camera to Cloud integrations built into RED Digital Cinema’s V-RAPTOR and V-RAPTOR XL camera systems [hyperlink to announcement] and Fujifilm [hyperlink to announcement] cameras to further revolutionize collaboration in production workflows.

Adobe’s first-to-market Camera to Cloud technology enabled productions to automatically transfer media from the production set to the cloud, letting the post-production team to start work on the footage immediately. The newly announced Adobe Camera to Cloud integrations further streamline the process by transferring media directly from cameras to organized Frame.io folder structures, without the need for intermediate devices, saving both production costs and time. This new in-camera evolution is anticipated to become a standard within the next decade.

“The RED team is proud to build on our history of working with Frame.io, becoming the first cinema camera company to bring this groundbreaking advancement to the filmmaking community,” said Jarred Land, president of RED Digital Cinema. “As we introduce this technology to deliver direct RAW and proxy files directly to edit via the cloud, we are excited for users to start unlocking the benefits that cloud collaboration can bring to productions at all levels.”

“Natively integrating Adobe’s Camera to Cloud with Fujifilm mirrorless cameras removes a huge time barrier between production and post for photographers and videographers,” said Victor Ha, vice president of electronic imaging and optical devices, Fujifilm North America. “It’s not just ground-breaking, it’s game-changing. We’re honored to bring this technology to mirrorless digital cameras users around the world, and we’re excited to see what comes next.”

More PDF Collaboration and Productivity

While Share for Review helps creative agencies more easily collect feedback in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, creative professionals still face challenges working with key contracts and proposals created in Microsoft Word or Excel. Adobe Acrobat PDFs can simplify how creative teams review, collaborate, and distribute these documents, whether they’re on the desktop, web or mobile. Over the last year alone, users opened more than 400 billion PDFs in Adobe Document Cloud, and Adobe processed over 8 billion digital signatures. Today, Adobe is announcing innovative improvements to how users view and collaborate across PDF documents, including:

  • A streamlined experience for viewing, editing and collaborating on documents.
  • An all-new viewer that helps users quickly and easily locate Acrobat tools to create, edit, e-sign, and review PDFs.
  • A Quick Actions toolbar that makes it easy to find and use popular features.
  • New Edit, Convert and Sign left-hand panels that reorganize tools into three purpose-driven categories.
  • Core Accessibility enhancements, including Read out Loud and High Contrast support.

As interest in virtual work continues to grow, Adobe has released Acrobat for Meta Quest, enabling users to fully use PDF documents within virtual and augmented productivity spaces. In addition to enabling PDF viewing, editing, converting, compressing, and sharing, Acrobat for Meta Quest supports collaboration through commenting, highlighting, and drawing – the same Acrobat features people love on the web are now available in immersive mixed reality.

Reinforcing Adobe’s Commitment to Content Democratization and Collaboration

The newly announced features and integrations add to Adobe’s powerful existing collaboration features and tools, including:

  • Frame.io for Creative Cloud, the industry’s first post-production review and approval workflow directly integrated with Premiere Pro and After Effects, which allows key stakeholders (editors, producers, agencies and clients) to collaborate seamlessly in the cloud, reaching final approval faster and easier than before. Frame.io for Creative Cloud also includes industry-first Camera to Cloud features to securely transfer and store hundreds of thousands of assets within Frame.io.
  • Invite to Edit for Photoshop and Illustrator, allowing users to save time and maximize efficiency by co-editing and commenting on Photoshop and Illustrator live cloud documents directly within the app.
  • Microsoft Teams Integrations for Adobe Document Cloud, the next milestone in advancing modern document, is the only integration of its kind for sending documents and creating e-signatures without leaving Teams.
  • Collaborate across team or across the globe, with Adobe Workfront. Teams and stakeholders can work seamlessly together to plan, produce, and deliver projects in real-time, whether they are across the office or across the ocean. Workfront is also powering Adobe’s new content supply chain solution.
