Adobe Max London, held earlier this week, is a regular fixture in the calendar of Adobe, the software giant behind Photoshop and the Creative Cloud ecosystem that envelops it. So it seems a good occasion to ask the question: where is Photoshop and the Creative Cloud heading?  So I sat down with two Adobe executives, to find out their thoughts. 

Obviously, no one is expecting Adobe to have a crystal ball. As the old Yiddish saying goes, "Man plans, God laughs". But at the same time, it's still interesting and useful to hear the official line from Adobe, particularly in this time of mounting disruption in the tech world. Especially because, right now, everyone at Adobe seems to be signing with the same voice.
