Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite, which is a program that takes files created in the company’s InDesign application and converts them into iPad applications, is part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud, as of today.
The Creative Cloud project is designed to allow users to download and “rent” the programs that are part of Adobe’s Creative Suite, including Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and more.
Instead of purchasing the programs outright, users are able to pay a monthly or yearly access fee to utilize them. With Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite, Creative Cloud subscribers can create single-issue publication apps that can be sold in Apple’s App Store. For example, users can create guides, books, brochures, and more, then submit them directly to Apple.
The Digital Publishing Suite will be provided to Creative Cloud users at no additional charge. While it is aimed at graphic designers, anyone can use it to create content because it doesn’t take programming experience.
A Creative Cloud membership currently runs between $50 and $75 per month, which is a deal compared to the cost of the individual software. For more information, check out Adobe’s Creative Cloud website.
