He also said that “Creative Cloud 2015 is our most powerful and comprehensive release to date.
 
The release includes the following updates.
 
Photoshop CC
 
Adobe has introduced Artboards, the best way to design cross-device user experiences in a single Photoshop document and quickly preview them on a device. A preview release of Photoshop Design Space has also been released with a sleek new work environment. 
 
Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC
 
Both have a new Dehaze feature that first appeared as a MAX sneak in October 2014. Dehaze eliminates fog and haze from photos, including underwater shots, for startlingly clear images. Haze can also be added to a photo for artistic effect.
 
Premiere Pro CC

It has added a Lumetri Color panel for powerful color corrections using intuitive sliders and other simple controls and Morph Cut, which makes it easier to deliver polished interview content by smoothing-out jump cuts in talking-head shots to create a cohesive, polished sequence.
 
After Effects CC

It now has an Uninterrupted Preview to allow artists to adjust a composition’s properties and even resize panels without impacting playback. The Adobe Character Animator brings 2D figures to life using a webcam to track facial movements, record dialog and apply movements in real time onto a pre-configured character.
Illustrator CC

It is now 10 times faster and 10 times more precise than CS6. Powered by dramatic boosts to its Mercury Performance Engine, users can now pan and zoom smoothly without delays. With the new Chart tool (preview), designers can also create beautiful custom charts and share them with others via CC Libraries.
 
InDesign CC

It has its own Mercury performance surge with zooming, scrolling, and paging through complex documents and is now twice as fast. InDesign now also allows users to publish and distribute documents with a single click.
 
Dreamweaver CC

New responsive web design capabilities that let designers quickly lay out and build production-ready sites that adapt to any screen size.
 
Adobe Muse

Instant access to premium fonts from Typekit.
 
Adobe Stock launched.

Adobe Stock Content Service has been launched, with Deep Creative Cloud Integration as the first stock content service to be integrated directly into the creative process and the tools that artists use every day. Now artists can jump-start projects, with access to 40 million images, right within tools such as Photoshop CC, InDesign CC and Illustrator CC. Adobe also announced it will offer industry-leading rates to photographers and designers contributing content to Adobe Stock.
 
The update is available for download by Creative Cloud members as part of their membership at no additional cost. The Membership plans are available for individuals, students, teams, educational institutions, government agencies and enterprises.
