Update apps when and if you need it, and how to use your creative cloud storage. I'll also be walking you through how to use some of the services, like type kit, which helps you create better web typography and behance, a website that allows you to showcase your portfolio online. Adobe's Creative Cloud has a lot of moving parts, and it's a big change for many of us in the creative industry. Hopefully by the end of this course, you'll be well informed of all of these changes, and ready to start using these tools effectively. Okay, enough talk. If you're ready, let's get you up and running with Creative Cloud.
