Want To Know More About Your Adobe Licensing Requirement? Let Us Help You


From Perpetual to Cloud licensing model, Adobe has come a long way. In order to suit the licensing requirements of each and every customer, they have constantly changed their licensing services. At present, Adobe offers its customers two types of licensing:

1) Adobe Cloud for Enterprise Also known as CCE

2) Adobe Cloud for Teams Also known as CCT

Although both types of licensing are available for Adobe customers, it’s important that you understand both of them before choosing one for your enterprise. In this article, we have tried to explain the differences between CCE and CCT in order to help you make the right choice!



CCE has a Single Sign-on option which makes it easier for the admin to manage license deployment. On the other hand, CCT requires every user to have a username that they can use to download Adobe software.


Cloud Space:

CCE offers a shared Cloud space which can be accessed by all the users. CCT, however, assigns every user his/her own Cloud space. Once that space is fully utilized, the user either has to delete the old files or transfer them to a storage device in order to make more space.


Terms of Purchase:

CCE can be bought via resellers and is available under 2 different licensing programs: VIP and ETLA (Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement).

  • If the customer chooses to buy CCE under VIP, the price is fixed for upto 1 or 3 years in US Dollars and has to be paid as and when the number of licenses are increased. The license count under VIP can only be reduced at the end of the anniversary date, which will fall after 1 year or 3 years, depending on the accepted terms at the time of order placement.
  • If the customer chooses to buy CCE under ETLA, the price is fixed in US Dollars for 3 years and the payment has to be made once a year on pro-rata basis. Just like under VIP, the license count under ETLA can only be reduced at the end of anniversary date, which will fall after 1 year or 3 years, depending on the accepted terms at the time of order placement.


CCT can be bought via Resellers or directly from Adobe website, and is available only under the VIP licensing program.


  • If the customer chooses to buy CCE under VIP, the price is fixed for upto 1 or 3 years in US Dollars and has to be paid as and when the number of licenses are increased. The license count under VIP can only be reduced at the end of the anniversary date, which will fall after 1 year or 3 years, depending on the accepted terms at the time of order placement.
  • If the customer chooses to buy CCT from the Adobe website, the only mode of payment is via Credit card and the customer can choose to pay either monthly or annually. The billing will be done from Digital River, Ireland in US Dollars equivalent to the local currency where you will be using the product.


So here’s everything you need to know about both the licensing models Adobe offers. Hope it helps you to choose the one that suits your requirement. If you have any more questions, send us an e-mail at <ashish@aisplglobal.com>.

Nitro PDF Vs. Adobe Acrobat Std – Which is Best?

Nitro PDF Vs. Adobe Acrobat Std – Which is Best?


If you’re looking for a good PDF reader and editor, you may have considered a variety of options to download. The most common are perhaps Adobe Acrobat Standard Edition, however, some of the alternatives are just as good – even better!

For now, we’ve compared some of the top two – Adobe Acrobat Std and Nitro PDF. It’s time to weigh up the pros and cons!


Adobe Acrobat

  • Adobe is part of the Adobe set of products, which are universally known as the ‘industry standard’ – an appealing trait to many prospective buyers.
  • Due to its popularity, many people feel that Adobe has stronger compatibility.
  • If you have a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, you’ll already have Acrobat, so you’ll be saving money by choosing this one.
  • Adobe Acrobat is available on a subscription basis, meaning you’ll always have the latest version. The program will automatically update itself with the latest updates, patches, features and more.


Nitro PDF

  • Nitro PDF is considered by many to be the better product of the two, and it actually has more features than Adobe!
  • It has a more user-friendly toolbar and easy file managing system, as well as a Smart Alignment tool to make working with PDFs easier.

  • Once you own Nitro PDF, you own it for life, making it the more affordable choice in the long run and better value for money.

Considering you get even more for your money with Nitro, many business users tend to see it as the better option, ensuring they have everything they need at a reasonable price point.

On the other hand, some are happy with the subscription based appeal of Adobe Acrobat and like that they’re using the industry standard.

keeps all the files in sync. Any additions, modifications, or deletions are reflected on all connected computers and devices !!


Your Adobe Creative Cloud account comes with online storage so that your files are available to you anywhere and on any device or computer. You can preview many creative file types directly in a web browser on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. These file types include: PSD, AI, INDD, JPG, PDF, GIF, PNG, Photoshop Touch, Ideas, and others.

The Adobe Creative Cloud desktop application keeps all the files in sync. Any additions, modifications, or deletions are reflected on all connected computers and devices. For example, if you upload an .ai file using the Creative Cloud Assets page, it is automatically downloaded on all connected computers.


Browse assets

Your Creative Cloud assets include files synced with your desktop, assets created using Creative Cloud–enabled mobile apps, and Creative Cloud libraries. You can browse all of these assets using the Creative Cloud Assets page, which organizes assets as follows:


shows assets synced with Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop

Mobile Creations

shows assets created using Creative Cloud enabled mobile apps


shows design libraries created by you


While you can perform several operations such as rename, share, download, replace, and archive on desktop assets (under Files), you can only view assets under Mobile Creations and Libraries, on the Creative Cloud Assets page.

When you click an asset category, it expands to show subcategories, if any. For example, assets under Files are further organized as All, Shared, and Archived.  

All: shows all files synced with Creative Cloud Files directory

Shared: shows files shared between you and other Creative Cloud users

Archived: shows deleted files

Similarly, you can browse assets created using Creative Cloud mobile apps under Mobile Creations, where the assets are further categorized based on the creating mobile app.

For information about libraries, see Creative Cloud Libraries.

Sync or upload files

To sync files from your computer, do one of the following:

  • Copy, paste, or move files to the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop.
  • In an app, choose File > Save or File > Save As and navigate to the Creative Cloud Files directory.

To open the Creative Cloud Files directory from the Creative Cloud desktop app, select Assets > Files and click Open Folder.


Filenames that contain special characters such as |, “? <, >, /, *, or: are not synced. Neither do files with reserved names, such as AUX or Com1. If you receive an error, rename the file to sync it to Creative Cloud. For more information, see Error: “Unable to sync files.”

Additionally, you can upload files directly to the Creative Cloud Assets page using any of the following methods.

Upload and manage your files on Creative Cloud using the Actions menu on the Creative Cloud Assets page.

Drag and drop assets from your desktop to the Creative Cloud Assets page.

Replace a file

Uploading the file again creates a version of the file and replaces the existing file with a new one. Creative Cloud also keeps a copy of every change you make to a file and sync through Photoshop Touch, Adobe Ideas, and the Creative Cloud desktop app.

To replace a file, using the Creative Cloud Assets page, do the following:

  1. Navigate to and open the file for viewing.
  2. Select Actions > Replace or drag the file from the folder to the browser window.

Note: The new file must be the same file type as the file being replaced. For example, you can’t replace a .PSD file with a .AI file.


Delete files

You can delete files from the Creative Cloud website or Adobe Touch Apps. You can also use the OS commands to delete files from the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop. All file deletions are synced with your account, and files are archived in Creative Cloud. The original files are always on your computer with a copy available on Creative Cloud so that you can access it anywhere.


Archived files continue to occupy online storage. You can permanently delete or restore files from the Archive folder. Permanently deleting the files frees up the storage quota.

Permanently delete or restore files

Follow these steps to delete assets permanently:

  1. Archive a file from your Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop, Creative Cloud–enabled Touch Apps, or the Creative Cloud Assets page. Archived files move to the Archived category under My Assets > Files.
  2. On the Archived page, select the files to delete permanently and click Permanently Delete.
  3. In the confirmation dialog, click Permanently Delete.

You can also restore an archived file:

  1. On the Archived page, select the files to restore and click Restore.
  2. In the confirmation dialog, click Restore.


Storage plans and quota

The storage quota depends on your Creative Cloud membership.

Membership plan

Free storage quota


2 GB

Creative Cloud (Photography)

2 GB

Creative Cloud (Single App and All Apps)

20 GB

Creative Cloud for teams

100 GB

You can view your storage status from the Files tab under Assets panel of the Creative Cloud for desktop app or on the Settings page of the Creative Cloud Activity page.

Storage status on the Creative Cloud desktop app


Storage status on Settings page


Creative Cloud syncs up to 1 GB of overflow from any device. After that, the Creative Cloud desktop app stops syncing new files and notifies you that you are over quota. A red exclamation point marks any files that are unable to upload. You can still move, rename, or delete files. To continue to sync files, permanently delete other files to free up space.


A small portion of storage is used for administrative purposes. Therefore, the actual storage space is slightly less than allocated. It varies from 100 KB to 500 KB based on the number of user files.



Adobe Muse – The easy way to create robust responsive sites

Adobe Muse could be a one stop for developing a good website. 
Someone who is a designer but doesn’t really know much about coding and wants to create a website, this is the major tool for that person.
Adobe Muse is by far one of the most useful softwares you’ll come across in this generation of website.
When combined with the full use of other softwares such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign, this software can help you create a seamless website all by yourself.




Here are some new features which can explain you why this is one of the best software in today’s design world. 


Creative Cloud Libraries in Adobe Muse 

Creative Cloud Libraries, powered by Adobe CreativeSync technology, enable you to access your favorite assets from home, office, or even when you’re on-the-go. Create images, colors and more using Photoshop, Illustrator, or mobile apps like Adobe Capture CC. Access these assets across other desktop and mobile apps for a seamless creative workflow.

Creative Cloud integration in Adobe Muse allows you to create your own assets and share these assets with other Creative Cloud users across the globe. You can also access, import, and use all the assets that are available through the Creative Cloud Libraries. Use the CC Libraries  Panel (Windows > CC Libraries) to access Creative Cloud Libraries from Adobe Muse.

You can now access Creative Cloud Charts through the Creative Cloud Libraries. Creative Cloud Charts enable you to create charts and insert them in Adobe Muse as linked assets. This means that your charts in Adobe Muse are auto-updated every time the data in the chart changes.


State transition

You can make your design more interesting and engaging by applying transitions to different elements on your web page. You can also set the delay, duration, and timing options for each state transition, in each element.

Select a menu or button for which you want to set the transition state. Choose Window > State. When you click the Normal, Active, or Rollover states from the Menu Item on the top panel, you can see the Transition options.

State transition in a published site depends on the browser’s ability to support W3C specification for CSS3 transitions.  


SVG graphic improvements

Adobe Muse 2015.1 allows you to import SVG files into an image frame, crop the image, and apply fill and stroke. If there are no frames, you can now import an SVG file directly, create a frame, and then crop the image. You can also add SVG images to slideshows. These SVG graphic improvements give you additional flexibility while designing slideshows.


Enhancements in Adobe Muse 2015.1

In the Swatches panel, you can now import and export Swatch libraries through the Context menu. 

Adobe Muse 2015.1 supports rotation detection in Exif content. Images that have rotation information embedded in them, will now be rotated to landscape when placed.

You can now create empty image frames by deleting the image content of an existing image frame. Double-click an image you have placed, and press Delete. The empty image frames will have placeholders.


Flash Professional is now Adobe Animate CC


For nearly two decades, Flash Professional has been the standard for producing rich animations on the web. Because of the emergence of HTML5 and demand for animations that leverage web standards, Adobe completely rewrote the tool over the past few years to incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. To more accurately represent its position as the premier animation tool for the web and beyond, Flash Professional has now been renamed to Adobe Animate CC 

Today, over a third of all content created in Flash Professional uses HTML5, reaching over one billion devices worldwide. It has also been recognized as an HTML5 ad solution that complies with the latest Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) standards, and is widely used in the cartoon industry by powerhouse studios like Nickelodeon and Titmouse Inc. 

Animate CC will continue supporting Flash (SWF) and AIR formats as first-class citizens. In addition, it can output animations to virtually any format (including SVG), through its extensible architecture.

There’s much more than just a name change however. Adobe team is hard at work on a major update with significant new features to create animations for any platform. Here’s a sneak peek by Michael Chaize, Principal Creative Cloud Evangelist:





Here’s what you can expect in Animate CC:

  • Drawing, illustration and authoring
    • Vector art brushes – Modify the path of a stroke after it’s been drawn, and scale them to any resolution without losing quality. You can also make custom brushes and import brushes created with Adobe Capture CC.
    • 360° rotatable canvas – Rotate the canvas on any pivot point as you draw to get the perfect angle and strokes. You can even use this feature with a Wacom Cintiq!
    • Improved pencils and brushes – Draw smooth, precise vector outlines along a curve and get faster live previews.
    • Easier audio syncing – Control audio looping directly on the timeline, without having to code.
    • Faster color changing – Naming tagged colors lets you change one color and have it automatically update your entire project.
    • Colored onion skinning – Easily orchestrate complex animations now that adjacent frames can have different color and alpha values.
  • CreativeSync integration
    • Adobe Stock – Browse and license millions of high-quality photos, illustrations and vector graphics directly in Animate CC. You can even add life to static content by adding animations to them.
    • Creative Cloud Libraries – Access colors, vector graphics and brushes directly as you work.
    • [Update 2/8: We’ve also added Typekit integration!]
  • Output capabilities
    • Multiplatform support: HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, Flash (SWF), AIR, video, and custom platforms (such as SVG) via extensions.
    • 4K+ video export – Export videos with custom resolutions for the latest Ultra HD and Hi-DPI displays.
    • Custom resolution export – Revitalize older content by resizing and optimizing them for any resolution, such as Ultra HD and Hi-DPI displays.
    • .OAM support – Export your project as an .OAM file for easy importing to Adobe Muse, InDesign, DPS and Dreamweaver.
