Flash’s latest critical vulnerability has been patched

The vulnerability left Flash open to exploits through which hackers could gain access to a machine, or that could cause the computer to crash. As with some other recent Flash vulnerabilities, the issue affected Linux, Windows, and Mac users, spreading the risk all around.

Adobe Flash has a new critical vulnerability on all platforms

Adobe Flash has a new critical vulnerability on all platforms

Well, it's only been a few months since the last major vulnerability was discovered in Adobe's Flash software, so we're right on time for another one. The company has issued a new security bulletin this week warning that the latest version of the Flash Player plug-in, number 19.0.0.207, is susceptible to an exploit that could cause PCs to crash or allow hackers to gain control. The bad news is that this applies to Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of Flash, and there is no guaranteed solution at this point, except for uninstalling the plug-in.

Dropbox, Adobe team up to make short work of PDFs

Dropbox, Adobe team up to make short work of PDFs

Although not directly trying to do so, Dropbox is slowly turning into quite a decent cloud-based productivity suite. Last year, it partnered with Microsoft to supercharge opening and editing office documents even from mobile devices. Now it's doing the same thing for PDFs through a friendship with Adobe. Now Adobe users on desktops and iOS devices can not only quickly get access to documents stored on Dropbox but, in the case of mobile, can edit them on the go, without having to download and then reupload the file.

Adobe Monument Mode erases annoying people walking into your scenic photos

Adobe Monument Mode erases annoying people walking into your scenic photos

Adobe's MAX conference saw the company demonstrate some of its still-in-development technology and software yesterday, and one of the most impressive was the feature called Monument Mode. Meant to run on smartphone cameras, the technology automatically removes walking people and moving objects from photos of landmarks and other scenes in real-time. The idea is the opposite of the kind of post-processing done in programs like Photoshop, instead removing obstructions before the image is even captured.

Photoshop Fix puts Creative Cloud power on iOS

Shortly before Adobe's Max conference officially kicks off, the company has announced its revamped mobile Photoshop product for iOS: Photoshop Fix. While the new iPhone and iPad app is still far from the full desktop version of Photoshop, it does offer the 10% of features and tools that a majority of users solely "acquire" the software for. Photoshop Fix's primary focus is on editing and retouching photos, and making it easy to do for beginners.

Adobe details how NASA edits space photos

Those incredible space photos we see from NASA don't look that way fresh off the camera -- they're commonly composite photos composed of multiple images that were taken with different parameters and then heavily edited and adjusted during post-processing. That's not to say they've been altered in such a way that makes them fake, only more appealing to the eye.

Just as they do every year, Adobe has announced new versions of its Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements software, their consumer-level photo and video editing applications.

iPad Pro has 4GB RAM reveals Adobe Photoshop Fix app

During Apple's big announcement of the iPad Pro yesterday, the company of course highlighted the mega-tablet's A9X processor and 12.9-inch retina display, but other specs were unfortunately glossed over. Fortunately there's good news for anyone considering the device as a serious multi-tasking work horse: it has 4GB of RAM inside, double that of the iPad Air 2. Surprisingly this information comes not from Apple, but from Adobe's press release for their new Photoshop Fix app.

Adobe’s newest tech finds and removes distractions from photos

Researchers with Adobe and Princeton University have revealed new technology that automatically identifies distracting objects in photographs and removes them. Such abilities are nothing new -- photographers can manually edit photographs to remove objects using, for example, Adobe Photoshop. That's not always a simple process, however, and may require technical skill the user doesn't possess. Thusly enters this new one-click technology.

Adobe says stop using ‘Photoshop’ as a generic term

Adobe says stop using ‘Photoshop’ as a generic term

When a company’s product so thoroughly corners a market that it becomes well-known even by those who have never used it, the company faces a problem: generic use of that product’s name. You’re likely to hear the term “dumpster” used generically, for example, as it is now a genericized trademark due to its common usage. Other trademarks have suffered the same fate — yo-yo, for example, and aspirin. Adobe doesn’t want its popular photo-editing software Photoshop to suffer the same fate, but it may be too late to stop it.

Amazon will start rejecting Flash ads next month

Amazon will start rejecting Flash ads next month

The Internet’s collective move against Flash — the frequently vulnerable software that increasingly has more downsides than up — just gained a big new ally: Amazon. The Internet retailer announced this week that it will soon stop accepting Flash advertisements, making it the latest company to gravitate away from Adobe's longstanding and much-maligned software. This announcement follows news earlier this month that Yahoo’s advertisements were used to spread malware that, ultimately, used vulnerable versions of Flash for success.

Study: Ad-blocking software use is rising at breakneck speed

Study: Ad-blocking software use is rising at breakneck speed

AdBlock and apps like it are the bane of ad-supported websites, and an occasional bit of browser extension-based guilt for users. On one hand, no one wants to deal with ads, at least not the poorly utilized ads found on many websites. At the same time, many users recognize that their favorite websites probably depend on those advertisement dollars, and so they may disable AdBlock for certain websites. Many ad-blocking users don’t bother doing the latter, however, and that makes a new report from Adobe and PageFair particularly worrisome for companies.
