Adobe celebrating its annual MAX conference in San Diego, and has taken the opportunity to introduce new features in their applications, and also to introduce new applications such as the case of Project Nimbus.
Under this mysterious codename a new image editor is hidden with support for cloud services, very current Lightroom style, but with a focus a little easier. In other words, it would be like Lightroom but aimed at the standard consumer, and not just the most expert and professional photographers.
Project Nimbus, as mentioned, will be very well focused on cloud services, leveraging the knowledge and experience that Adobe has acquired in recent years with applications for mobile devices. In fact, it is intended to be used in a fluid way with other Adobe tools, as well as allow work to be done from mobile applications and desktop applications.
The new editor also share the database of images and other graphic resources Cloud Creative Cloud, as well as the ability to always keep an original copy of the photo in which you are working (i.e. without changes editing affect it) and available from all your devices.
Another interesting feature of Project Nimbus is his use technology machine learning Adobe. Thanks to it, you can for example use natural language to locate a photo in your collection, without having to label them previously – a system that other companies are also adopting, such as Google with its application of Photos or Apple with its new iOS 10.
It is still unclear whether this Project Nimbus will be a new version of Lightroom simplified for the standard user, or if eventually completely replace the original Lightroom. At the moment we have to wait, because for now Adobe has no plans to launch yet, and there will be a beta that can be tested at least until next year.
Other news from Adobe
Project Nimbus has not been the only new feature introduced by Adobe at its MAX conference. Other interesting applications presented this week are, for example, Felix Project and Experience Design.
The first Project Felix, is an application of graphic design to create compositions of objects in 3D on 2D backgrounds or scenarios, combining both elements and presenting them in a composition of great realism.

Project Felix will be available as a beta for Creative Cloud subscribers by the end of the year.
The other application, Experience Design, is now available in beta. It is a tool to design, prototype and share user experiences in mobile and online apps, with support for collaborative development.Tags: Adobe Project Nimbus
