Our friends over Adobe is having a busy week with a couple of cool announcements that includes a new add-on that will let you do more within your Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. Announcing their integration with Google Slides to allow users to easily create, edit and collaborate meanwhile using their inventory of images at your disposal. You'll be also able to search for images, explore curated galleries, perform a visual search and more. On the other hand, Adobe Stock is introducing a new member to their team that will be acting as the first director of editorial content. Let's take a closer look.
In their words
• Search: Perform a keyword search or browse curated collections available directly inside the add-on panel. You can even use Visual Search powered by Adobe Sensei to find high-quality, royalty-free results that match the color, tone and composition of your uploaded sample -- all you need to do is drag and drop an image onto the search bar! • Templates: Make your work that much better and your life that much easier with the many template options (pitches, portfolios and other pre-made presentations) available. • Preview and License: Easily insert a preview image into your layout to test different options as you work and collaborate on your presentations.
Working with Google to develop a stock service add-on for Google Slides has been an important step in ensuring that customers are enabled with the best tools for their presentation needs,” said Vikram Viswanathan, Director of Strategy & Product Partnerships for Adobe Stock. “Users are able to work and collaborate through the Google Slides experience while leveraging high-quality, royalty-free images from Adobe Stock with the confidence that the images come with the appropriate licenses for their business.
