For me, and my students it has to be After Effects. The students tell me that creativity goes crazy when working in this software. I to feel that After Effects is a software that can stretch the imagination, and provide a seamless length of creative possibilities.​

Techniquement photoshop est incontestablement le logiciel le plus complexe pour les utilisateurs et je pense que acrobat est l'outil d'échange de documents PDF le plus utilisé.

Not a easy question to answer, for me its a toss up between Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and pivots exactly on what I need to get done. Although I will never use the entire package, the production bundle is in my opinion the best option to go with.

Photoshop for sure!

Adobe Voice for the iPad, the user interface is buttery smooth

Christian Gutierrez

100% Agreed with you.... Adobe Voice is hottest Adobe product... My grandfather just create his own adobe voice history....It is unbelievable.

Adobe muse!! Loving it!!!

Lynne Tilley

Adobe Muse I understand is "hot", can't wait to learn it.

Paula Droddy

Posted on 2/24/15 8:36:36 PM Permalink

From what I hear Muse is hot. I would love to check it out. Don't have it at home or in my workplace though (insert sad face here).

Mats Soderberg

Posted on 2/19/15 8:34:54 PM Permalink

It`s changing over time, depending what you are up to. Learning Muse was fantastic. Now I´m into editing, so Premiere Pro is hot now, and of course Flash for animation is lovely.

Katie Morgan

Posted on 2/19/15 8:21:53 PM Permalink

There are so many for different uses! Flash is hot for teaching animation, Photoshop for image manipulation & editing, Premiere for editing and the one I need to learn more of and which is so hot - is After Effects!

Adobe Muse is hot!

Chris Schnell

Apps are on fire

Richard Lombardo

I really think Adobe Muse is one of the hottest product right now. Easily create websites with many interactive features.

Lemmule Sanders

Adobe Muse is on Fire.

Alan Humbert

Posted on 2/13/15 12:02:48 AM Permalink

I just learned a little about MUSE, so it has my fire stoked right now!

Darius Dela Cruz

I like what Adobe Connect can do.

Betsy Vela

Posted on 2/8/15 3:04:07 AM Permalink

Adobe Premiere Clip for iOS is HOT! It has los of different tools to create engaging videos in an easy to use interface. Adobe Photoshop Mix for iOS is also HOT. Combine multiple images on the fly - no green screen needed.

Samantha Spencer

Photoshop - I've been working with students to create gifs and short animations.

David McGill

Posted on 1/29/15 12:50:42 AM Permalink

I think that Adobe Muse is the host for quick and effective web sites

dan aylesworth

Posted on 2/18/15 2:00:23 AM Permalink

Good luck with Muse

Tony Bolder

Posted on 1/26/15 4:52:04 PM Permalink

I would have thought that any Adobe product that you are using, and need to use, will be the hottest product. In my teaching the current hottest Adobe product to the students is the one they need to use to fulfil their assignment work.

Petra Perz

Posted on 1/26/15 10:41:17 AM Permalink

Adobe Premiere Pro is far

Mina Waters

Posted on 1/26/15 9:02:20 AM Permalink

So many great products on creative cloud. My favourite has to be Photoshop

Dorothy Yu

Posted on 1/26/15 6:34:44 AM Permalink

I think Adobe Presenter 10 software will be my best choice. You can convert an ordinary PowerPoint presentation into an interactive content using Adobe Presenter 10. I have seen a demonstration of how it works and I can see the potential in using this tool to facilitate a flipped classroom approach as an alternative pedagogical model.

Basim Assaf

Posted on 1/26/15 12:04:18 AM Permalink

I can think of two products: the first is Muse as it made it very easy to design a website.

The second is premiere pro as it is a very powerful professional program.

Aalia Rahman

Posted on 1/25/15 11:43:48 PM Permalink

Too many too many! Adobe Illustrator is my fav. But I also love coding, so dreamweaver as well.

Kim Fox

Posted on 1/25/15 6:03:53 PM Permalink

Hard to gauge, but I hear a lot about Captivate.

Vicky North

Posted on 1/25/15 4:19:15 PM Permalink

I love the ease of use in the classroom of Photoshop Elements. Kids quickly catch on and go to the dark side of photo editing if not watched closely. I also love using Premier. Both products are fairly easy to use in my elementary lab. But I am excited to explore other Adobe products through this course. Maybe one of them will become my new favorite.

Catherine Stephensen

Posted on 1/24/15 9:07:53 AM Permalink

Ohhh Just too many to choose! No, truthfully I'm not familiar with enough of them yet to be able to vote for just one. Ask me again in 8 weeks time :-)

Emily Simas

Posted on 1/24/15 6:33:11 AM Permalink

I'm not sure yet. Ask me again at the end of the T4T course!

Anita Thiernian

Posted on 1/23/15 6:53:52 PM Permalink

I need more (current) experience with Adobe products to answer this question. It's one of the reasons I've joined the Exchange. The only thing I have had any real experience with in recent years is Photoshop, which is amazing but still intimidating. I'm looking forward to exploring the applications we'll be working with during this class.

Yevhen Plotnikov

Posted on 1/23/15 5:41:15 PM Permalink

Captivate (if it is necessary to choose only one)

Deborah Lloyd

Posted on 1/22/15 11:07:27 PM Permalink

My favourite is illustrator followed by photoshop

Tonya Mills

The Adobe Creative Cloud with a special 'shout-out' to Behance ;)

Konstantin Köhler

Posted on 1/22/15 9:07:40 PM Permalink

Premiere Pro, Photoshop & Muse

Charlene Turman

Posted on 1/22/15 6:54:21 PM Permalink

Adobe Creative Cloud.

Kim Fox

Posted on 1/25/15 6:02:55 PM Permalink

I would agree. The Cloud is popular, but there aren't many alternatives at the same level as Adobe.

Matt Howcroft

Posted on 1/22/15 3:04:57 PM Permalink

The whole of Creative Cloud

Sandra Webb

Posted on 1/22/15 4:10:12 AM Permalink

I'm not sure - having only worked with a few. but I do like taking photos and like what I've been able to teach myself so far on Photoshop. But I would love to learn video editing. I used Dreamweaver 8 years ago and would like to get back using it as well.

Robert G West

Cynthia Banks

Posted on 1/21/15 6:14:14 PM Permalink

I would have to say Adobe Captivate is the hotttest product!

Jeff Jones

Posted on 1/21/15 6:06:26 PM Permalink

Photoshop is the hottest for me with Lightroom moving up fast because of all the new features they keep adding to it.

Lita Bledsoe

Posted on 1/21/15 5:48:20 PM Permalink

Acrobat in terms of brand recognition and common usage.

Albor Moscoso

Posted on 1/21/15 4:44:30 PM Permalink

Photoshop, hands down, but it works well paired with Premiere, Flash and illustrator

John Foley

Posted on 1/21/15 3:42:30 PM Permalink

Adobe Color, enable collaboration, control and consistency across applications.

David Hotler

Posted on 1/21/15 3:00:36 PM Permalink

Can't get enough of that Adobe After Effects! Photoshop + Premiere Pro

Andrea Marz

Posted on 1/21/15 2:19:54 PM Permalink

Illustrator and Photoshop have always been hot, while others seem to come and go...

Terrell Neuage

Posted on 1/21/15 1:51:26 AM Permalink

I wake up during the night thinking about some sequence I could do in Premiere so I am not sure whether such an obsession is good or bad but I do try shots the next day that I thought about during the night though I would rather sleep all night.

Ronald Byrd

Posted on 1/20/15 10:04:31 PM Permalink

Muse is really hot. I mean hot like a cookie in a daycare!

Denise Dejonghe

Posted on 1/20/15 5:35:17 PM Permalink

I think Muse - makes it quick/easy for designers to create websites without coding.

Jason Webb

Posted on 1/20/15 1:14:43 PM Permalink

As always, Photoshop is the flagship, but with the success of Premiere and After Effects in Hollywood, I see a three way tie.

Brenda Tuncer

Posted on 1/20/15 12:35:13 AM Permalink

I like photoshop and illustrator

Randolph Lavery

Posted on 1/20/15 12:29:50 AM Permalink

Still trying to get the programs downloaded on the school computers. Looking forward to Photoshop and Premier.

Tanner Smith

Posted on 1/19/15 11:45:31 PM Permalink

I think Illustrator allows me to practice at my creativity and ignites me to try new things.

Ian Gilbert

Posted on 1/19/15 9:04:14 PM Permalink

Photoshop as it works with all the other programs. It's an essential tool for creating graphics no matter what you do: design, elearning, video etc

Sarah Buncum

Posted on 1/19/15 6:32:49 PM Permalink

Photoshop is my go to...eager to learn the others:)

Sue Howlett

Adobe Voice. Any age group can use this

Veronica Sarmiento

Posted on 1/19/15 4:25:40 AM Permalink

InDesign. It's the glue.

Madra Ullrich

Posted on 1/19/15 3:50:47 AM Permalink

Photoshop is my go to app. InDesign, Muse and Edge Animate are becoming fast favorites!

Lori Stammer

Posted on 1/19/15 3:18:23 AM Permalink

Fireworks. Simply because it is easy to use.

David Duke

Posted on 1/19/15 2:55:47 AM Permalink

A lot of products are hot, but recently I'm very keen on the advances of Adobe Edge Reflow.

Sue Hunt

Posted on 1/19/15 1:34:30 AM Permalink

InDesign, definitely!

Liz M

Posted on 1/18/15 10:48:08 PM Permalink

InDesign would be my winner! So many possibilities and uses

Dominic McCall

Photoshop still keeps me warm after many years of use just add an extra layer of flames to the virtual fire to keep my passionate flames of creativity flickering!

Photoshop is pretty hot I agree but I'm really excited about using presenter in the classroom for flipped and blended learning.

Leon Felipe Carrizosa

Posted on 1/18/15 4:50:30 AM Permalink

Premiere Pro ... After Effects... I´m sorry, I consider this couple as one.

Megan Townes

Posted on 1/18/15 3:41:13 AM Permalink

I think Photoshop is the most popular but in regards to which one is the 'hottest', I really like the apps that have been released in the last year or so. Adobe Voice is fantastic, as is Adobe Photoshop Touch.

Gail Dunn

Posted on 1/18/15 2:26:18 AM Permalink

So many to choose from, but I think a new front runner has emerged with Lightroom.

Denise White

Posted on 9/23/14 12:30:38 AM Permalink

I love Photoshop, but After Effects is running a close second.

Li Li

Posted on 8/30/14 1:56:48 PM Permalink

In my opinion, Photoshop is the hottest. However, Premiere is catching up.

uma ravi

I like Photoshop .I am also interested in mastering in after effects.

Louis DePriest

Posted on 8/29/14 9:00:32 PM Permalink

There are so many that I have a hard time deciding which is the hottest. I am interested in Adobe Voice.

Shelly Gooden

Posted on 8/29/14 5:21:41 PM Permalink

Captivate and Digital Publishing are my "hottest"!

Kristen Baldridge

Posted on 8/28/14 9:59:34 PM Permalink

Dawn Bradley

Posted on 8/26/14 5:29:56 PM Permalink

I love Photoshop, but I am learning to embrace Illustrator as well.

Thomas Lerch

Posted on 8/26/14 5:44:14 AM Permalink

For me it is Adobe InDesign and the digital publishing options.

Mats Soderberg

Posted on 8/26/14 1:44:12 AM Permalink

For me it´s InDesign with the functionality for Ebook production

Colin Byers

Posted on 8/25/14 5:23:13 PM Permalink

For me it's Photoshop... but I'm rockin' out with Muse just now, it's sooo easy to use!

Bridget Centeno

Photoshop is the hottest product for me.

Maureen LloydJames

Krista Carnihan

Photoshop is the hottest for me, I use it all the time.....doesn't matter what I am doing or what I am teaching Photoshop also seems to be there.

Craig Daalmeijer-Power

Hottest would have to be Proto.... I loved the way it was available on ipad and linked into DW

Eliot Attridge

Posted on 7/25/14 11:03:33 AM Permalink

I'm going to alter my original answer and go for Voice. As more and more people use, the more interest it generates. Brilliant app!

Photoshop is #1 for me, closely followed by Lightroom.

Steve Gandy

Lightroom is bringing the power of Photoshop to photographers without the learning curve. Oh, they'll get to PS eventually but with such a tailwind!

Patrice Atwell

Lorraine Nitschke

Posted on 7/14/14 2:43:26 PM Permalink

That's a really, really hard question. I love Photoshop, my students love Photoshop. But it's a bit like being in a lolly shop - there's always another jar with pretty coloured sugary things . . . InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Acrobat, Captivate, Encore, Audition . . . so hard to decide. I guess I'd vote for Photoshop for all-round usability and fun, though.

Michelle Roberts

Posted on 7/14/14 2:08:40 PM Permalink

I like Photoshop for its versatility! It's pretty much my one-stop-shop for anything I do. I can edit my photos, design web sites, design logos, do 3D graphics, animate gifs, create classroom materials, create PDFs, design craft patterns and print outs, it's my everything!

Janette Wotherspoon

Posted on 7/13/14 8:54:18 AM Permalink

Anne Bown-Crawford

At present it's Photoshop in my more advanced classes. But I'm excited about integrating Adobe Voice into my beginning classes next year!

Debbie Burger

I have to go with Photoshop as well.

Leah Trojan

Posted on 7/11/14 7:23:21 PM Permalink

Right now - Edge Animate. I have just scratched the surface, I am looking forward to great things from it!

Lisa Russell

Posted on 7/11/14 6:32:15 PM Permalink

I am biased toward Captivate. I actually prefer 7 to 8. There is so much to this product you never stop learning new things to do and try. Other programs help you develop quicker, but you are using someone else's design.

Scott Lang

Posted on 7/11/14 8:08:36 AM Permalink

Photoshop for its versatility and ability to do so many things. But After Effects is pretty hot as well based on its use in the industry and the freedom it gives users to create without limitation.

Branden Laurie

Posted on 7/11/14 4:13:50 AM Permalink

Can't go wrong with using Adobe Photoshop. The students love using it as well.

Valerie Olenick

Posted on 7/11/14 3:26:23 AM Permalink

Photoshop makes me happy.

judith schwartz

Posted on 7/10/14 8:31:04 PM Permalink

With Photoshop you can be the most visually creative and versatile but for publication and book design InDesign is the best. Of course the combination of the 2 makes it even better!

sarah butcher

Posted on 7/9/14 12:55:35 PM Permalink


Simple, illustration tool that let's you build pieces quickly. It is a sketch tool or an end product creator.

The scalability factor, yeah! That part is what really makes me take notice. I can create an image on my tiny iPad or iPhone screen and print it out in feet not inches. That's pretty amazing.

adobe professional, I am a practical person. I look for things to manage the creativity, a way to get info to the masses.

Chris Anderson

Photoshop, though Illustrator is close on my list. It all depends on your project and what your creating and for who.

Pamela Singho

Posted on 7/8/14 1:44:11 AM Permalink

Right now I still have to say Photoshop. I'm learning so many new and standard Adobe products but I keep coming back to Photoshop, an old and seasoned friend.

Armando Estañol

Posted on 7/8/14 12:13:21 AM Permalink

Although Photoshop always is the rosetta stone for any graphic work I do, I believe that Flash has the greatest potential and is truly a standard, which HTML5 is still too early to be called an standard (you will have a hard time trying to make a code once, run in many devices kind of app). Being said that, After Effects is also a great creative canvas.

Some interesting products to watch out in the future, are those of the Edge family.

Rob Knight

Eric Labonté

Flash has the most versatility to create anythying for multiplie applications and platforms. Photoshop seems to be a heavy favorite though...

I think Photoshop because its versatility. Photoshop may be used for any form of communication. Even though it does not have audio (at least I haven't found it yet) photoshop may be used to make your dream come true. The good think is that photoshop developers keep on working to improve the software, always listening to user. I like that.

It would have to be a toss up between the Edge Products and After Effects.

Mariano Saban

I use mostly Premiere and After Effects, but I have to agree with a lot of comments: Adobe Photoshop is the hottest

Irma Bauer

I am a fan of Adobe Premiere Elements because of it versatility and simplicity.

Dan Duhon

Posted on 7/6/14 11:48:51 PM Permalink

InDesign is the hottest Adobe app because of the ubiquity where it is used.

Shahal Rajan

Posted on 7/6/14 6:44:42 PM Permalink

Adobe DPS with Indesign is the hottest because it allows and my high school students to create and disseminate interactive, engaging content for mobile platforms.

That being said, I have been watching vids on Edge Animate...seems to be really cool.

Tulio Silva

Posted on 7/6/14 3:32:03 PM Permalink

Photoshop is great, Flash is awesome, but I'd go with Acrobat, it made documents available for the masses. Everyone uses PDF, not everyone Flash (hello Apple and Linux), even fewer Photoshop.

Bhuvana Sriram

Adobe Premier Elements and Photoshop Elements. After using them for the past three years I have learnt many technical tools and created more interest to know more about the other products.

Photoshop. I use it every day and I learn something new at least once a week.

Adobe Illustrator seems to be so universal. It's Illustrator for me.

steve charlton

Adobe Premiere- I've used Final Cut Express in my classroom for years and Premiere is a definite step up.

Bettina Pulliam

Posted on 7/5/14 9:32:18 PM Permalink

Photoshop is probably the hottest. Although Flash puts in a lot of work behind the scenes.

Robert de Grouchy

Posted on 7/5/14 8:51:14 PM Permalink

Photoshop. Everybody wants to learn how to use it, and it is a required for so many different fields.


Posted on 7/5/14 8:44:11 PM Permalink

I think it's Photoshop.


Posted on 7/5/14 8:41:50 PM Permalink

Photoshop is the most approachable of all the Adobe applications, thus acts as a threshold for new users. Once Photoshop is actively pursued, I believe it boosts creativity fosters confidence to explore other applications and tools! You can flex your 'tradigital' muscle, stay digital, apply painting and drawing techniques to the platform or bring in photography. Creating .gifs are my fav aspect of this application. Let's face it, Photoshop is the hottest!!! :)

Debbie Tofft Lincoln High School

Maycon Guerra

Adobe After Effects for me!

Tracy Grant

It has to be Photoshop although I think InDesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver are pretty awesome too.

Anita Kaddoura

Posted on 7/5/14 7:20:13 AM Permalink

Photoshop lights my fire. It can create images and it can edit any images. My favorite is how it edits images embedded in Adobe Acrobat and then replaces the image with the new edited image.

Jack Randell

Posted on 7/5/14 1:25:28 AM Permalink

Photoshop, because it changed everything in 2D imaging... photographers became painters, and painters became photographers.

Before PS they had separate histories

Daniel Siegel

Posted on 7/5/14 12:04:07 AM Permalink

I would have to agree with Photoshop. It is the name so many people (justly or unjustly) associate with Adobe.

Herb Dunmore

Posted on 7/4/14 10:45:33 PM Permalink

Thats a tough question. Many "hot" tools. My choices -- After Effects, then Illustrator, Photoshop

Julia Heckles

Posted on 7/4/14 10:09:32 PM Permalink

For me the hottest Adobe product is Photoshop because it has a wide appeal with its many applications from fine art collage to photo manipulation. And Photoshop has become the everyday word for altering a photo. That in itself is testament to its capabilities as a product and its importance and influence on contemporary visual arts.

Derek harwell

Posted on 7/4/14 9:34:21 PM Permalink

perhaps this discussion as its the most popular on adobe discussion forums....but in reality, I like edge for animation and moving things to be more web based and HTML5.

Jay King

Posted on 7/4/14 6:38:19 PM Permalink

Photoshop I would say is the hottest Adobe product. It is an amazing tool for incorporating digital creativity into your lessons which will engage and motivate students to fully participate in the learning process.

Julia Heckles

Posted on 7/4/14 8:22:47 PM Permalink

Do you incorporate Photoshop into art lessons or into photography lessons? I am interested in the digital creativity of Photoshop in the classroom also, but leaning more towards the art class. Interested in what and how you apply Photoshop.

Jason Schmidt

Posted on 7/4/14 4:01:36 PM Permalink

I'm really intrigued by the use of Photoshop in the classroom. There are so many creative possibilities for this software!

Shawn Surma

Posted on 7/4/14 3:07:40 PM Permalink

Creative Cloud is by far one of the Hottest Products for Adobe in Education. It opens up a whole new way to get what is needed to who needs it, right when they need it.

Tracy Castoe

Posted on 7/4/14 9:35:10 PM Permalink

I agree. It has changed the way we purchase software.

Brian LePori

Posted on 7/4/14 2:28:51 PM Permalink

I think that with all the products that Adobe has to offer, and each one excellent at the results they deliver. It is almost impossible to say that one product is hotter than another. I think the entire Adobe brand is the hottest thing going. The name is synonymous with creativity. I really like how the products all work together. I love being able to start a project in Premiere and jump the audio to Audition to fix it and then go back to Premiere and see the results updated in real time. I like how I can create a PSD and import it into any number of programs and preserve each individual layer for further editing. It is a huge time saver.

Jack Randell

Steve Paquet

It would have to be Photoshop CS6 because you can do so much with it. It's also a great intro to editing film:)

Kate Fletcher

Julia Heckles

Is Captivate also good for creating learner handouts and guides that can be put on the intranet?

Lukas Engqvist

Yes captivate can be used for interactive "handouts". I'm just dabbling with it at the moment but hope to get more proficient.

Photoshop but in saying that all Adobe products are hot because of the way they have been designed to integrate with each other thus enhancing and streamlining workflow.

Melinda Cowen

Posted on 7/4/14 1:19:32 AM Permalink

The hottest product for me is Photoshop as I am required to use it the most to get my job done. I believe that the hottest product in the future will be the one most taught in schools.

Daniel McHugh

After Effects, powerful tool to get the extra mile out of your production.

Laurie Ables

I work a lot with pictures, so I would have to say Adobe Photoshop is my favorite tool..

Clint Balsar

Posted on 7/3/14 6:58:51 PM Permalink

It's like asking which is your favorite child! I love them all. Especially the way Adobe has continued to improve the integration from one to the other. I continue to like them all more, when I learn how to make them all work as a unit to get the task done efficiently.

Melanie Pickens

Posted on 7/3/14 5:17:24 PM Permalink

For me the hottest Adobe product is Premiere Pro. I am just learning this software, but WOW! It is a great editing software with great features and a workflow you can organize in a logical way. Plus I love that you can integrate Photoshop and other Adobe products into your Premiere Pro uses.

Janet Cook

Posted on 7/2/14 10:06:09 PM Permalink

I'll buck the crowd and say Dreamweaver. I love the fact that it keeps track of all your files and eliminates spelling/typos in the tags.

Jesse Cole

Posted on 7/2/14 9:53:20 PM Permalink

I am loving working in Adobe Illustrator, I think right now the hottest is Lightroom.

Jimenez Marilyn

Posted on 7/2/14 9:13:34 PM Permalink

My staples are Photoshop and After Effects, but the 'hottest,' in the sense of what is relatively new for me and hence exciting, has to be Edge Animate.

Patrick Browne

Posted on 7/2/14 8:55:32 PM Permalink

My current favourite is Illustrator however the hottest one by far is After effects. The range of animation potential is amazing and I'd like to learn more about this product.

Edward Mondragon

Posted on 7/2/14 8:41:38 PM Permalink

The hottest Adobe product is actually the Creative Cloud aspect of the software. As a teacher, we have purchased several versions of the Creative Suite to keep our software up-to-date for our students, but the CC version will provide us with the current version with very little hassle.

Margaret Agbowo

Posted on 7/2/14 4:57:32 PM Permalink

I love DreamWeaver, I've used PhotoShop for decades but it's so powerful I just delved into PS's potential this year, and I just discovered Muse through a chance link during this class. I think Muse is my next adventure: I've used Wix for 2 years to build curriculum websites but I prefer to design my own site instead of using templates [which means someone else's site will look very similar to mine].

Eric Dumas

I am always amazed how they all connect within each other.

I can link to an InDesign document Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML, PDF, Edge Animate, Word Processors and Spreadsheet files... and they all auto-update my final artwork

The workflow is just amazing

Diane Sudman

Posted on 7/2/14 3:05:38 PM Permalink

I think I'd have to go with Photoshop, although that assessment may change as I learn more about the other products.

I lose myself working in Adobe After Effects. There is so much you can do.

Captivate! You can import media from other great Adobe products and create quizzes to assess your students' understanding.

Thomas Jenkins

Posted on 7/1/14 8:05:21 PM Permalink

Personally, I think more people use Photoshop. I love the other products. But with more people needing to edit images I think Photoshop is the hotest. I think After Effects, Dreamweaver, and Illustrator are close second.

Thomas Jenkins

Captivate, but it needs assets to be built so Photoshop and Illustrator maybe.

Helene McLaughlin

Dario Copellino

Photoshop and Illustrator depending on if I'm working with just raw editing in Photoshop or creating a blended composite. I love to use Illustrator to create patterns or overlays to use in Photoshop. The two together are great.

Marsha Poholsky

Posted on 7/1/14 3:01:11 AM Permalink

I think Photoshop is the number one program. But I really want to learn Lightroom so I can use them together. In fact I think the hottest product is that you can use the products together.

I would say Photoshop is the go-to is a household name. But as for igniting my fire, its After Effects that peaks my interest the most.

Linda Parker

Illustrator at the moment. I have worked a lot with Fireworks and Dreamweaver but introduced my students to the wonders of Illlustrator. Love it and so do the students

Melanie Sherwood

Posted on 7/1/14 2:04:41 AM Permalink

For me After Effects is the hottest Adobe Product there is. Perhaps because I recently took a training from Lumenbrite and had so much fun with it. I had used the product when I worked in television 7 years ago. When I started teaching PS was the mainstay. It's so exciting to see how After Effects has developed in the last 7 years, I can't wait to teach the program to my students. PS is so flat and motionless for the most part. I love that AE can get things moving in a 3D space as well as being able to layer and mask things like in PS.

LaTonya Motley-DeLucia

Posted on 7/1/14 1:57:46 AM Permalink

Dreamweaver is the hottest to me but Adobe Acrobat is starting to catch a nice little blaze in my world. I really like how I can manipulate content in Dreamweaver. And I use it almost every day to design web content. And lately I've spent alot of time in Adobe Acrobat and I'm excited about all the cool features in the program like the integrated portfolio.

Has to be photoshop for me as it allows creative flair but also is very structured in terms of following a workflow or a set of instructions, the advantage that an adv user can change the workspaces to custom to fully customise their own settings is also a huge advantage.

George Rothmaller

Photoshop because I am a photographer. I've had no creative limitations using Photoshop. If I imagine it I can create it with Photoshop.. Looking at my proposed post it sounds like a commercial for Photoshop but that's my story and I'm sticking with it until I find it's limitation

I think Photoshop will be the hottest, because it the program my students want to start learning about.

I really love Photoshop even though I am still a newbie at it. I also very much love Acrobat because of the versatility the product offers. I think Acrobat has the capabilities of really taking our students to the next level with digital portfolios to make them more career ready - especially in jobs we don't currently have.

The potential of Adobe Presenter....I'm convinced that 'we've ain't seen nothing yet!' and the possibilities for its use, especially in the field of education and training, is going to leave the other products in the dust! LOL (Though I'm also partial to PS Elements and Lightroom....)

Adobe Acrobat Pro.

pedro martinez

Posted on 6/30/14 6:32:49 AM Permalink

For me the Hottest Is Adobe Acrobat Pro. it makes pdf forms amazing...

Matt Corley

Posted on 6/30/14 6:24:45 AM Permalink

Which Adobe Product is the Hottest? I would have to say Photoshop. I say this because it seems like there isn't really a limit to what you can do with this product. What you can do within it is extraordinary, but you can incorporate it into other products as well. If you can imagine it, more than likely you can create it in Photoshop.


Posted on 6/30/14 6:05:17 AM Permalink

I have only really used Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements but looking forward to learning about and exploring a range of new tools as a member of this Adobe community.

After Effects, besides being a rookie, I am in love with it and all video resources it has.

At the moment for me it is Brackets - HTML, css & javascript editor.

David Lee

Photoshop - just getting into it, but what is able to be achieved by even a 4 year old is amazing.

even as a newbie, using the healing brush and the content aware filter are like the most awesome thing
(since the last most awesome thing :)

Aaron Grable

I think it's clear that the Creative Cloud is a cutting-edge concept and suite. It provides the accessibility that people need, the flexibility that they want and the creative power that they need.

Lexia Pippin

Photoshop and Voice

Pip Cleaves

I think Adobe Voice is pretty hot right now. And Lightroom. I love using Lightroom on my mobile devices.

Jim Luckas

Posted on 6/29/14 10:28:09 PM Permalink

Photoshop is definitely the hottest due to it being a multi use tool...

Kathryn Meldrum

Clint Balsar

I agree that Voice is hot right now and a lot of fun. My favorite and my personal vote for the hottest of all time, has got to be Photoshop, though.

katherine Yamashita

Posted on 6/29/14 9:32:15 PM Permalink

What's my favourite? Photoshop. What's the hottest right now? Love Voice and Hammersmith.

Wendy Sandstrom

Posted on 6/29/14 9:27:21 PM Permalink

I think most are most familiar with PhotoShop. So I would say that is a timeless Hot Product. But right now I would have to say all the new apps linking the products (announced at the Adobe Keynote recently) is the hottest. Adobe Ideas, Sketch, Line, Voice, Mix, Kuler. All for iOS!

Ruth Soderstrom

Posted on 6/29/14 9:11:50 PM Permalink

Speaking from my only experience with adobe products I like Flash.

Regina Temple

Lisa Troxler

Posted on 6/29/14 8:12:40 PM Permalink

Thats easy. Adobe Photoshop. It allows you to do very simple effects (text, filters) to really extreme effects (3D, Content Aware). Something for every level of skill and knowledge. Its addictive, its fun, its fabulous. Your potential of creating something new and exciting out of something old, humdrum or boring is a thing of the past. Then you can place your images into anything - MS Word, PPT, Adobe InDesign, DreamWeaver, Premier Pro, etc.............

Alice Tunnell

Posted on 6/30/14 3:36:14 PM Permalink

Hi Lisa, I understand what you say about something for every level. And I also like to use InDesign.

Ann Riding

Posted on 6/29/14 8:10:16 PM Permalink

Adobe Voice is the newest, hottest app for education!

devin hedman

Posted on 6/29/14 7:47:11 PM Permalink

The hottest product to me is Adobe After FX which for me is like Photoshop for video.

Eliot Attridge

Posted on 6/29/14 7:39:13 PM Permalink

The hottest product for me is Illustrator. The pen tool seems so complex, but once you learn how to use it it's fantastic. So much potential to create beautiful vector images.

Adobe voice is hottest


Posted on 6/30/14 2:13:52 AM Permalink

I just found out about this when I saw a colleague use a presentation done in this to solicit participants for her Doctorate...pretty interesting, though I have not had a chance to really give it a spin.

Barbara Swanner

Posted on 6/29/14 7:15:43 PM Permalink

Photoshop is still the product most often used and talked about in my classroom. I am interested in CC and really appreciate the teacher discount. I think some of my students still have a hard time getting parents to pay a monthly fee, but I am glad that they can just get access to Photoshop. Most are still opting to buy Elements because it is a one time purchase, that will be good for several years. My advanced students and those interest in studying graphics in college want the cloud.

Alice Tunnell

Posted on 6/30/14 3:38:02 PM Permalink

Our school had Photoshop Elements. I am really interested in finding out more about Adobe Cloud.

Janet Harris

Posted on 6/29/14 6:54:34 PM Permalink

Adobe Voice is a great tool. I am excited to see what my students will create with this powerful tool.

Jarvis Grant

Posted on 6/29/14 6:35:29 PM Permalink

Photoshop would probably be my favorite all round tool. It offers the most magical creative experience for students. It is both an artistic and utilitarian container for ideas. While not the best tool for all media, along with Bridge it can handle photos, vectors, text, video and audio. You can publish content for print or online use.

Alice Tunnell

Posted on 6/30/14 3:39:21 PM Permalink

Sounds like your students are very confident with Photoshop.

Tom MacIldowie

Posted on 6/29/14 6:30:50 PM Permalink

The hottest product is the creative cloud update app that enables you to know when the latest versions are available. In terms of production illustrator and after effects are the hottest production apps, these apps are only limited by your creativity.

Louis DePriest

Posted on 6/29/14 6:15:15 PM Permalink

I think that Photoshop is the hottest product.Even though Adobe is pushing Ligthroom. For me the whole CS 6 suite is still beautiful.

Ryan Patton

Posted on 6/29/14 5:46:47 PM Permalink

The product I am most excited about is not necessarily a product but more of a new delivery system. We are switching from CS6 to the Creative Cloud which will give us a broader exposure of the Adobe Suite to all students an labs on a campus. In addition our middle school programs will benefit from getting a higher quality production grade products.

Alice Tunnell

Posted on 6/30/14 3:40:45 PM Permalink

I would love to find out more about the Creative Cloud.

Amanda Hack

I have the most experience with Photoshop, and I love, love, love it. Although every time I use After Effects, I sparkle.

Alice Tunnell

I love using Photoshop too. It is fun to use just to create!

Judith miller

Posted on 6/29/14 2:50:35 PM Permalink

I think that Photoshop is the hottest. It gives such a variety of ways to express yourself while fine tuning an idea.Not to mention the ease of use.

Damien Soukhavong

Posted on 6/29/14 12:09:38 PM Permalink

Adobe Photoshop, because it has unlimited possibilities when you want to try something new.

Phil Badham

Posted on 6/29/14 10:42:25 AM Permalink

Tricky question. I think the hottest in terms of use/need is Photoshop, but the hands-down winner for sexiness is After Effects.

Timothy Allen

Posted on 6/29/14 10:21:03 AM Permalink

I think the "hottest" adobe product would be Photoshop because it seems to be the most known and used adobe product. However, the adobe product that is the "hottest" for me is InDesign.

michael burton

Posted on 6/29/14 6:48:29 AM Permalink

To me this would be the Adobe Reader. For my self personally and professionally it is Adobe Connect. I think Connect is an unrated GEM. Michael Burton


Posted on 6/29/14 5:56:55 AM Permalink

If we judge by weight of numbers, I suspect that Adobe Reader would top the list because of the abundance of PDF files out there, but I wouldn't rate it as "hot". Photoshop would have to get my vote.

Gwilym Lucas

Posted on 6/29/14 5:56:04 AM Permalink

Photoshop. You can create imaginary worlds with ease.

Joel Aarons

Posted on 6/29/14 5:04:15 AM Permalink

Depends what you mean. To me, the "hottest" refers to the most popular or most widely known. For that - it's gotta be Photoshop. Nothing else touches it. Photoshop has become a widely used verb! There are other products I enjoy using more, but Photoshop is definitely the hottest.
