Adobe Flash warnings start popping up on Windows 10

Adobe Flash warnings start popping up on Windows 10

We're counting down the days to the end of the year but that won't be the only thing that will end after December 31, 2020. While we probably wish a certain pandemic will magically end at the stroke of midnight, it will be some other lingering malady that will be ceasing at the turn of the year. Adobe will be ceasing support for Flash, something that has been years in the making, and it is now making sure Windows 10 users know about it before that time comes.

Adobe Premiere Pro, Rush, Audition Beta now on Apple M1 Silicon

Adobe Premiere Pro, Rush, Audition Beta now on Apple M1 Silicon

Apple's ARM-based M1 Macs have definitely conquered the computing and tech news, at least until Cyberpunk 2077's disastrous launch took over. The chip's power and capabilities have definitely impressed both users and pundits but all that is for naught if apps don't take advantage of it. While the Rosetta 2 emulation layer also does a surprisingly impressive job, nothing still beats running native software directly. That's why it's no small news when a popular program announces support for M1 Macs, especially when that program happens to come from Adobe.

Adobe Flash Player gets one last update before its demise

Adobe Flash Player gets one last update before its demise

Few web technologies are probably equally loved and hated as much as Flash, created by Macromedia and now owned by Flash. Flash created a whole genre of content and a generation of sites that the creators of the Web may have never thought possible and probably wished never came to be. Those will soon be history, quite literally, as official support for the Flash Player inches closer to its death. But not before Adobe strangely pushes out one last update that will be relevant for only a month.

Firefox 85 in January will completely kill off Flash support

Firefox 85 in January will completely kill off Flash support

It's been a while since we've heard of any announcement concerning Flash and most have probably presumed it was already dead anyway. After all, it was years ago when Adobe, who bought Flash creator Macromedia a long, long time ago, announced that it would eventually stop supporting the former darling of the Web. The clock is ticking and fate has finally caught up with Flash and Mozilla is making sure that its remaining users know that Flash will completely stop working in the latest version of Firefox coming next year.

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

ARM-based computers, including the iPad Pro, have long been in existence but one thing that has held them back is the lack of familiar software and tools that people have come to rely on for work or personal use. To some extent, software like Adobe Photoshop has become a sort of litmus test and its absence has discouraged consumers from investing in these new devices and platforms. With Apple diving into the ARM world, however, Adobe can no longer really ignore this new wave of computing and has finally brought Photoshop not only to ARM-based Apple Silicon but, finally, to Windows on ARM as well.

Windows 10 update kills off Adobe Flash Player – kind of

Windows 10 update kills off Adobe Flash Player – kind of

There's a Windows 10 update coming down the pipeline today that's interesting for a couple of reasons. The first is that the update is completely optional, and the second is that the update attempts to kill off Adobe Flash but doesn't really go far enough. In fact, there's a good chance that you'll still have Adobe Flash installed on your machine even after applying the update.

Photoshop, Illustrator on iPad gets live streaming feature

Photoshop, Illustrator on iPad gets live streaming feature

For years, it seemed that Adobe was mostly ignoring the rising popularity of Apple's iPads as creativity tools even when the first iPad Pros came out. Its apps for the large slates paled in comparison to its popular desktop software and has allowed competitors like Procreate to become household names in that market. It is slowly but surely trying to make up for lost time by adding what has become a rather popular feature among digital artists, the ability to stream their work to an online audience.

Here’s how Adobe plans to make digital art theft impossible

Here’s how Adobe plans to make digital art theft impossible

In addition to all of the product announcements it made today at MAX, Adobe also revealed new details for its Content Authenticity Initiative. This is still in the prototype stage, but the idea is to make it so photographers and artists can be properly attributed to their work through tamper-proof information attached to each image. If you’ve ever had someone steal your work without proper attribution, this could prove to be a very useful tool.

Adobe Illustrator “Recolor Artwork” works like magic for iterative design

Adobe Illustrator “Recolor Artwork” works like magic for iterative design

Today Adobe delivered a sneak preview for the near-future feature called Recolor Artwork. It works like magic, intelligently seeking out the color pallet with which you've designed a piece of work, allowing you to change said pallet on the fly. Better yet, it allows you to intelligently select a whole new color pallet from an existing picture, lift it, and use it as your own.

Adobe Liquid Mode uses AI to make reading PDFs on your phone easier

Adobe Liquid Mode uses AI to make reading PDFs on your phone easier

We live in a digital and mobile world but, ironically, many of the things we deal with still aren't designed to fit both. Electronic documents that come in PDF form are one of the biggest offenders and while there is no shortage of PDF reader apps for phones, actually reading them on small screens is an entirely different matter. To address that problem, Adobe has embarked on a multi-year campaign to make PDFs behave better without actually changing them and the first stop in that journey is the new Liquid Mode for Acrobat Reader on mobile.
