PixelHaze Academy teams up with Adobe to promote the Creative Cloud

When Adobe reached out to us to confirm our partnership (PixelHaze Academy is now an Adobe Affiliate Partner), we were naturally delighted.

It also triggered a nostalgic trip down memory lane, back as far as the time I built my very first PC, complete with a state of the art Intel Pentium 486 processor, a CD re-writer and a 17” CRT monitor that would cause a crater the size of Builth Wells if dropped from the second floor. My favourite piece of software for by budding graphic and web design career? Adobe Photoshop 3.0. You may have guessed it, but the year was 1995.

After all these years of working with Adobe products, dating back to the early days of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator in the mid 1990’s (heck, I even remember working with Flash and Dreamweaver when they were under the Macromedia umbrella), we can still recommend the Adobe CC as the pound-for-pound allrounder for designers and creatives. It’s not quite perfect and can certainly overwhelm beginners, but the versatility of the package; from the ability to manage and edit camera raw photos in Lightroom, to dressing up photography in Photoshop, creating vectors in Illustrator and pulling it all together into a video using Premiere After Effects and Audition, Adobe Creative Cloud has you covered. It may seem a little pricey at first, however if you find the requirement to use 3 or more of the CC bundle applications, it should prove great value for your money.


Photoshop CC, Adobe’s flagship image editing app, remains an industry standard because of its innovative vision of how the software can assist photographers and graphic designers in doing their jobs. While technically, Photoshop’s subscription model frees it from the tyranny of yearly upgrades, Adobe still announces high-profile updates on a yearly schedule. Having dispensed with commercial version numbers (it is now at version 20), Adobe now renames the app according to the prospective year.

Proving too costly to get started?
