Last year, Adobe launched Creative Coffee Breaks – a series of mini-tutorials each teaching you a new skill or technique in the time it takes to boil a kettle. This year, this popular series will help you make the most of Adobe Stock – a library of millions of top-quality resources, which Creative Cloud members can access directly from inside their favourite apps.
January is the ideal time to refocus, learn something new and add some skills to your creative toolbox, and Adobe has released four video tutorials to help you do just that. This series covers all of the flagship Creative Cloud programmes, with a special focus on how they work seamlessly with Adobe Stock.
Adobe Stock provides Creative Cloud members with access to over 90 million high-quality images, graphics, videos, templates, and 3D assets, and is built right into your favourite Adobe apps. The latest Creative Coffee Breaks series aims to show you exactly what the fuss is about, and what sets Adobe Stock apart from other image libraries.
Adobe has asked some of the coolest UK designers and photographers around to show you how they use Stock in their workflows. You'll learn how to apply lettering to a stock template in Photoshop CC with hand-lettering artist Ian Barnard, and how to source and licence a Light Leak directly in Adobe Stock through Premiere Pro CC with photographer Dave East. And that's just the first two videos – check out the playlist for the full set.
Each tutorial lasts under two minutes, which means you can easily grab a cup of coffee, take a mini break from work, and learn a new trick. If you're not yet a Creative Cloud member, but you fancy having a go at some of the tutorials, you can download a free trial of any of the apps in the suite – and with the 30-day Adobe Stock trial, you'll get 10 free images.
