Following this week’s release of Adobe Creative Suite 6, Adobe has announced the immediate availability of Creative Cloud and Muse. Adobe Creative Cloud is a subscription-based offering for making, sharing and delivering creative work. Adobe Muse 1.0 enables designers to create websites without writing code, and provides access to more than 400 Web fonts via the Adobe Typekit service.
In addition, Adobe has updated their Touch Apps for iOS. Adobe Proto and Adobe Collage have been added to the iTunes App Store, and updates to Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas for iOS are now available. Special offers for Adobe Touch Apps are available for customers who sign up for annual membership of Adobe Creative Cloud.
Adobe Creative Cloud Membership Delivers:
- Access to download and install all CS6 applications (Photoshop®, InDesign®, Illustrator®, Dreamweaver®, Adobe Premiere® Pro, After Effects®, Flash® Professional and other products), new HTML5 desktop products—Adobe Muse and Adobe Edge preview—and integration with Adobe Touch Apps
- Easy storage and sharing of content across desktop, mobile devices and the cloud
- Integrated website publishing and hosting

Pricing for Creative Cloud membership for individuals is US$49.99 per month based on annual membership and US$74.99 per month for month-to-month membership. A special introductory offer of US$29.99 per month for CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS5.5 individual customers is also available. Education pricing is available. To learn more, please visit .
Adobe Muse offers master pages, built-in tools for interactivity, and access to more than 400 Web fonts served by the Adobe Typekit™ service.
Adobe Muse will feel immediately familiar as it has some of the same features and keyboard shortcuts found in other software, like Adobe InDesign®. Adobe Muse allows designers to easily add engaging, interactive elements such as slide shows and embed content from sources such as Google Maps and Facebook**. Users can preview and test functionality of a website within Adobe Muse or create a temporary site and share the URL with clients for review. When the site is ready to go live, designers can either host it using a third-party solution or use Adobe’s flexible all-in-one hosting service. An Adobe Muse one-year subscription or Creative Cloud membership also includes some site hosting.
Adobe Muse is available for individuals at US$14.99 per month with an annual subscription and US$24.99 per month for month-to-month subscription. Adobe Muse is also available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud membership.
