I am using the Adobe Creative Cloud apps a great deal in my work and here is a fun, short video illustrating the possibilities these apps present to designers/artists but their accessible nature (they are free!) make them a fantastic tool for everybody who enjoys taking images and is inspired by their surroundings.
This accessibility is the main reason I use these digital tools in my work and feel that they create the opportunity for non professionals to be creative on an advanced level. As my project aims to involve customers in the design process of patterns and imagery, these apps offer the tools for them to do so. I am highly interested in the development of further features as in the past six months alone the options of Adobe Capture have increased (the Pattern and Looks features have been added recently) .
