Adobe is building live-streaming feature in iPad versions of Photoshop and Illustrator, allowing users to broadcast and film themselves from right inside the app.
In the announcement blog post, Adobe talks about its philosophy behind its most recent update stating that live streams are a great tool for learning and how they enable individuals to share their creative process and unique workflows with their friends and followers in real-time:
“Live-streams are a powerful learning and teaching tool. They enable you to share your creative process and unique workflows with your friends and followers in real time, as if you were sitting right next to them. You can watch a piece of artwork come together as it’s being created – and even witness how happy accidents can fuel your creativity.”
Live Stream on Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator apps on iPad
To start streaming from Photoshop or Illustrator apps on an iPad:
- Users just need to tap the “share” icon in the top right corner.
- Then choose “Live-stream.”
Eventually, Adobe plans to further integrate the apps with Behance to show viewers a timeline of what tools have been used through a broadcast, but that feature isn’t available at launch.
“This live-streaming feature is built right into these apps, so you can go live in just a few taps. Anyone with the live-stream link can watch and comment on your stream as you go. On the flip side, you can also watch live-streams directly from Photoshop on iPad, Illustrator on the iPad, and Fresco in the Discover tab of the apps, as well as via the Live section on Behance.”
Moreover, Behance also supports live-streaming from Adobe desktop apps but, it only works via setting up a third-party streaming app and configuring the streaming app to work with Behance.
