Adobe has applied a major update to its Adobe Creative Cloud tools and services, which subscribers will be able to access today.

The 2015 release of Creative Cloud brings power boosts across the range of desktop applications, as well as revealing new connected mobile apps for iOS and Android.

Photoshop celebrates its 25th birthday by introducing Artboards for designing cross-device projects, new productivity tools, and a preview release of a new work environment, Photoshop Design Space.

Mercury Performance Engine tweaks boost InDesign and give Illustrator a 10X speed bump. Illustrator also brings a new chart tool to the party, while InDesign allows one-click publish and distribution.

Headline features in video and motion graphics include Photoshop's Creative Cloud Libraries being added to AE and Premiere, Face Tracking in AE, Photoshop-style colour controls in Premiere Pro, a new way to deal with jump cuts, and interface tweaks to make the tools easier to use on touchscreen Windows tablets and laptops.

There are also two standalone products making an appearance in the Creative Cloud offering: Character Animator and the new 'Kuler-for-video' app, Adobe Hue.

Most of the motion and video tools were premiered (sorry) at NAB a few months ago, but we've highlighted any new additions to the lineup in the individual package pages.

The company has also shipped Adobe Stock, a stock content service that integrates directly into the creative toolset.
