Surprised by the new CC Desktop!

Hello all!

I get surprised by the new CC Desktop!

I have time today, so I follow the visit guidance, and it appears to be more friendly and fresh and respecting the state of my account, which by now is limited to the free plan, after deactivating the Photoshop monthly plan (because no more use now).

After some exploration, I found the font icon which shows me the fonts I've activated and that I use.

I appreciate the steps of the guidance visit which I found sober and made me enjoy the new layout. Because it's only a new look and I found it closer to the state of my account.

I also appreciate the suggestions that invite me to restart my Photoshop plan, so when I need this, I surely go directly to the right screen of the site in one click.

I also appreciate the 'start a project in Adobe Express" which shows me apparently only projects related to my free plan, and some I even had no idea that I could do, like a flyer or a poster ('affiche' in French).

After that, on the hamburger menu, I saw Help / Have your Sayu, and in this support community, I saw some complaints. I check the task manager and effectively Adobe CCs' processes eat an average of 14% CPU continuously, and a good 200M of RAM, but I have two instances because I logged two users on the same Windows 10 computer (2009's core i5 750 16G RAM) for convenient reasons out of Adobe scope but they are on the same Adobe account. That 14% is more than the old version, but I know Adobe for years (1990-) even with Framemaker at work in these early years, and I know that there are some bugs with each new release, sometimes with work loss for Adobe's customer (which is really hard to live), but I've learned to work with that and am careful when playing with a new release. This is balanced with the enthusiastic new features and layouts like Colin Smith's remove tool tutorial in his Photoshop hack newsletter which is into the beta features of Photoshop, and I found it impressive just looking at the newsletter!

(disclaimer: this is my own spontaneous point of view and I am not related in any way to Adobe or to M. Smith / Colin Smith | Photoshopcafe.com <support@photoshopcafe.com> and get tired of some words spoken against Adobe, they'd better file a lawsuit if they are so disappointed than crying the crocodile's tears 😛 and thanks to Grammarly to correct my froggy English 😉 )

Hi @michelk51369757, thanks for joining the community and posting this feedback on the new Home tab.

 

We're working on reducing the resource consumption and allowing you more control over what's running with version updates this year. Stay tuned!

I notice the automatic update is turned off now, I surely did because I had a time without an Internet connexion, and will back turn it on and report 😉

Well, the automatic update is on in the General tab, despite in Preferences/Applications there is a greyed option for an automatic update which is off.

Here are some screenshots I just made. The is one core at 40%, the remaining are under 10%.

Hope this helps!AdobeCCDesktop-2023-04-17-14pctCPU-1.PNGAdobeCCDesktop-2023-04-17-14pctCPU-2.PNGAdobeCCDesktop-2023-04-17-14pctCPU-3.PNG
