(MUSIC) My name is Justin Seeley and I'm a staff author here at lynda.com. I'd like to welcome you to Up and Running with Creative Cloud. This course is meant to give you a general overview of Adobe's new subscription model platform known as Creative Cloud or CC for short. I'll start off by giving you an overview of what Creative Cloud what it does, and how it's different from the quote unquote traditional software model. I'll also debunk some creative cloud myths along the way so that you know the real truth behind some of the rumors that have been floating around. From there we'll take a look at the creative cloud platform its self where I'll show you how to download and install creative cloud apps to your computer.
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.
