Adobe rolls out for public preview its HTML5 web animations tool, the Adobe Edge!

Last Sunday, Adobe released a new tool called Adobe Edge. Aimed to coexist with Adobe Flash, this new tool will enable creative professionals to design animated web content using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. And as the web goes more mobile, this new web design tool will continue to solidify Adobe’s top player position in the modern web infrastructure.

However, the company doesn’t see this as their way of caving in with the Flash vs HTML5 battle, since both technologies are still used by today’s web designers and developers.

Adobe Edge aims to provide the tools that will aid professionals to create web animations and – in the future – even simple games. But as of now, the software will focus on its core animation engine.

Photoshop Touch Apps Finally Landing on Tablets

Written on April 11, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Adobe Photoshop finally jumps on board the tablet express.

It was a long wait, but it was all worth it. Adobe has finally jumped on board the realm of tablets, as it unveils the first three Photoshop Touch apps for the medium: Eazle, Color Lava and Nav. The apps are heading to the iPad sometime in May, so rack up your creative juices as you prepare for Adobe Photoshop on the iPad.

But this isn’t precisely the Adobe Photoshop CS5 that we’re using on our PCs per se. Instead, this is Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK). Photoshop Touch SDK allows third-party applications to communicate with the Adobe Photoshop CS5 on the PC at real time. This means you can turn your iPads (and soon Honeycomb tablets) into a control surface to edit images.

Check out the short descriptions of the Photoshop apps, right after the break!

Adobe acknowledged another flaw on their Flash player, as Mila Parkour reported the bug. Users must be aware of some PDF files that are sleeping inside their computers. Or else it may drop a bomb.

Adobe confirmed today that hackers are exploiting a critical un-patched bug in Flash Player. According to a security advisory issued by the company: “There are reports that this vulnerability is being actively exploited in the wild against Adobe Reader and Acrobat.”

Mila Parkour, an independent security researcher, reported that a malicious PDF file document exploits the bug in Reader, then drops a malware on the victimized machine. All versions of Flash on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android carries the bug by the “Authplay” component of Reader and Acrobat 9.x. And while no patch is available yet, users can protect themselves by deleting the authplay.dll. However, it will crash the Reader and Acrobat when it access a file that contains a Flash content.

Written on October 10, 2010 by Charles Bass

When two worlds collide,it will definitely clash. But if it is for the benefits of both ends, surely, we'll see success. Adobe and Microsoft, recently met and talked about the future of their respective companies. There might be something that they are planning to execute. Their main targets? Google and Apple.

Admit it guys, nobody’s perfect. Even the technology and software giants have their own problems. Just like what happened recently with Adobe and Microsoft. Google and Apple are running face to face with them it seems that they found glory in each other’s arms. Reports came out in New York Times, who collected reports from employees and consultants representing both companies. Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer and Adobe’s Shantanu Narayan recently conducted a meeting on Adobe’s headquarters. It was a closed-door affair. It went out for an hour covering topics that dominated the world of technology. The electrifying scoop is, a possible option for Microsoft to acquire Adobe. It must have been accurate but we cannot judge until the book is finally open, right? So Steve Jobs, you might be a little agitated about this? Not giving Adobe a chance? We’ll keep you posted.

Adobe Resumes Work on iPhone Tool

Written on September 11, 2010 by Charles Bass

1 person

Let's all wish that the rift between Adobe and Apple will be over soon. Admit it, life's different without Adobe Flash.

Man, it’s really a good news. Apple announced that the resume of work on its Flash to iPhone system for Flash Professional CS5  is on hand.

Apple quotes:

Apple’s announcement today that it has lifted restrictions on its third-party developer guidelines has direct implications for Adobe’s Packager for iPhone, a feature in the Flash Professional CS5 authoring tool. This feature was created to enable Flash developers to quickly and easily deliver applications for iOS devices. The feature is available for developers to use today in Flash Professional CS5, and we will now resume development work on this feature for future releases.

But don’t think Apple is giving up. This doesn’t mean that Flash will return immediately.  Pharmacologically speaking, users are allowed to use generic systems for iPhone app creation. Apple frameworks remains to be better. We also think, in light of the new Apple App Store rules, that the potential  abuse of these frameworks are less. Even if it’s easier to blow up an application in Flash, I doubt that this burst passed the approval stage.
