Adobe Creative Cloud: additional features for Named User Licensing

September 20, 2018

Creative Cloud is a set of applications and services from Adobe Systems that gives subscribers access to a collection of software used for digital storytelling, graphic design, video editing, web development, and photography. Last December, we introduced Adobe Creative Cloud applications through the Yale Software Library. Familiar elements include Acrobat - to create and edit PDF files, Photoshop - for photo editing, and Premiere - for video editing.

On Wednesday, October 3, Yale’s version of Creative Cloud will be expanded to include a set of optional cloud-based services that enhance the product suite, including options for team collaboration and photo syncing. Look for a new set of exciting capabilities expected mid-October; we will post updates to upcoming editions of IT Update.

Most importantly, these cloud-based services are intended only for use with Low Risk data, and should not be used with Medium or High Risk data. These new services, like Adobe Creative Cloud Named User Licensing, are only available to Yale faculty and staff, on Yale-owned computers, and are not appropriate for multi-user computers - such as those used in labs or classrooms.

Online training for the entire Adobe Creative Cloud suite is available through the LinkedIn Learning training library. Start your journey with the Adobe Creative Cloud course.
