With so much power, where do you start?

Start right here, with the only classroom-proven guide to the entire Adobe Creative Cloud suite: Adobe Creative Cloud Classroom in a Book.
Authored by leading designer and instructor Joseph Labrecque, this guide reflects his experience teaching hundreds of students at the University of Colorado Boulder College of Media, Communication & Information. Each chapter combines an overview of a Creative Cloud app with well-crafted hands-on practice. Labrecque introduces the software, explains essential concepts and design principles surrounding its use, guides you through basic tools and workflows, and then walks you through executing a project from beginning to end. You'll learn how each tool works in real life, and how to apply design concepts and theory in your own creative practice.
