almost 2 years ago by IanDorfman

October 20th marked the first day of the Adobe MAX conference and the company announced updates and new releases across its entire suite of products.

A major announcement was Adobe Illustrator on the iPad. It's a full version of Illustrator adapted to the unique form factor of the iPad and its accompanying iPadOS. It also includes full Apple Pencil support, 18,000 fonts, OpenType Color and Variable Fonts, and any licensed fonts also usable on the desktop version.

A new version of Adobe Photoshop on the desktop and iPad was detailed as well. It includes artificial intelligence-powered Neural Filters as a part of a brand new machine learning platform, a Sky Replacement function that separates the sky from the foreground of any image, an AI-powered Discover panel that generates personalized tips and suggestions to improve your workflow, and more.

Adobe Fresco announcements were also included in MAX, with a post detailing them. The full version of Fresco will be made available on iPhone in addition to its current Windows and iPad releases. Text support from Adobe Fonts will be made available on Fresco across all platforms alongside new brush tools and stylus sensitivity configuration.

In addition to the above, livestreaming support is now available across Photoshop, Illustrator and Fresco.

Adobe Premiere Rush updates were also showcased. In addition to hundreds of additional assets being incorporated into the software alongside a redesigned search tool, Premiere Rush will also include Splice royalty-free audio options for content creators directly in-app. New transitions and animated titles will also be made available.

One more day of Adobe MAX remains, and any more announcements saved for the last day of the conference will be detailed on the official Adobe Blog.
