Assignment 7: Adobe Creative Cloud

 Today we are going to try to log into Adobe Creative Cloud. We are going to start transitioning into Adobe CC and away from Photopea and Pixlr. This software is more complicated, but much more powerful. We are going to do a couple of different activities in this assignment and all of them are self-paced.

Activity 1: Adobe CC Login

1. To start out, we are going to try logging into Adobe Creative Cloud. The link is below:

4. Explore CC to become familiar with all the different tool available to you.


Activity 2: Downloading Lightroom on your Phone
