Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video About the apps in this course, part of Adobe Mobile Apps For Designers.
- [Instructor] In this course, we're going to be taking a look at the mobile apps from Adobe that are designed to be a part of your creative process, enabling you to bring your ideas to life wherever you are and then you can always refine them later in the desktop software. It's a simple idea: Quite often when we're having great ideas, we're not surrounded by the equipment we need to bring them to life. And so you make do with things like a napkin or a sketchbook or a piece of paper and then you have to interpret those ideas later and go through various processes to get them into the digital world.
But these days, you're almost always carrying your smartphone or your tablet and these apps offer you an alternative way to capture and experiment with ideas that's intuitive and feels quite natural. Plus, you have the benefit of working fearlessly because you can always undo or create a new branch with hardly any effort. All of the apps are connected to create a cloud and unless your organization is one of the very few that has restrictions to stop you from using the CC services, you'll have access to your assets wherever you are in the form of Creative Cloud libraries, the Creative Cloud folder and various services such as Timekit, Behance and your Adobe Stop subscription if you have one.
You can push projects from the mobile apps to the desktop software and use assets from your Creative Cloud folders and libraries in those projects. You could even use, view, share and comment on your device with the Creative Cloud app. It really is a complete ecosystem of creativity. In this course, we'll be looking at Adobe Capture, which allows you to capture and create vector graphics, patterns, color themes, brushes and more. We'll be meeting three members of the Photoshop family in the form of Photoshop Fix and Photoshop Mix, which are perfect for improving and combining images, along with Adobe Sketch, the incredible drawing app that turns your device into a superpowered creative studio.
We'll be looking at one of my favorites, Illustrator Draw. It's the freehand vector drawing app from the Illustrator family and Adobe Comp, which makes it easy to wireframe and then build layouts that can be sent to many of the desktop apps for completion. The apps are available for free from the App Store of IOS and the Play Store for Android. Simply search "Adobe Systems" and you should find them easily enough. So, what are you waiting for? Go get 'em and we'll get started.
