Thanks to a special student deal at Adobe, me being a student, and having an awesome mom: I was able to get Creative Cloud! :D

I have access to these tools at school (CS6 Professional to be exact) but due to the fact I'm actually in school during this time, I never was able to really experiment with what it could do to it's full potential. It's getting to a point where GIMP is still a great tool for me to use, but I'm reaching the absolute limits of what it can do (such as not being able to preserve the entire alpha channel which is a real pain when making textures). Plus a few of the school programs actually "require" me to own said program. Not a real requirement but many things are taught through those programs.

I did a trial run of the Creative Cloud versions and I absolutely loved them.

What does this mean? Well, while I'll still use GIMP for a lot of my art, I'll be able to expand further, including into the world of 2D digital animation and vector graphics.


I haven't done 2D animation in a long time and I'm fairly rusty, but hopefully with practice I'll be good.

Just what is Creative Cloud? Is it a program geared more towards art than GIMP and Photoshop?

Creative Cloud is the essentially the next Adobe Creative Suite. (CS6, etc) The difference is that rather than being restricted to a certain number of computers, you sign in to get access to your programs from anywhere on any device that supports it.

It comes with Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator, Premiere, and a whole bunch of different art and design programs.

Ooh Cool! Sounds fun to play with. 

(I'm typically a traditional artist so I'm clueless with digital stuff :P )
