The cloud is becoming richer and richer than the last moment at every second. The concept of computing is drifting constantly ‘heaven towards’ if you kind of believe that the clouds are where the heavens are. The several advantages of cloud computing are too good to resist by all major service providers. Amazon has been a major component of the cloud system. Google uses the cloud for several functions such as hosting the Google Docs. Companies like Salesforce are connecting with the cloud to take advantage of the immense scalability and analytic features in determining leading trends. The flexibility of accessing the data/apps and the relatively affordable procedure are acting as major incentives for websites to explore the cloud.
However, the system is still in an evolution stage. There are several major challenges on the way to perfection. Many software solutions at present still fail to comply with the requirements of the cloud. The creative solutions are also in the process of exploring the digital heavens in developing amazing design protocols. Although the data management features like spreadsheets, and marketing automation features have been major participants in the cloud network, creative faculties are still to open up largely to a system of cloud collaboration. Most of them are even now stagnant in offering desktop-based solutions solely. However, the overall scenario looks promising with the widespread acceptance of the HTML5 programming protocol.
Photo editing and sharing sites like Picnik (Acquired and integrated in Google +), Pixlr (Autodesk acquired it in 2011), and Aviary (the official photo editor affiliate of Flickr has around 50 million users regularly active) have been the first services to pioneer the creative inroads into the cloud. The professional cloud-based prototypic tools like Macaw, Flinto, and Flite Studio are rapidly gaining acceptance in the creative community.
The connection to the cloud can prove beneficial for both amateur and professional digital creative artists. The internet is essentially a huge canvas for creativity, if one thinks about it. The written text, the videos, and the audio, all have to explore creativity to progress in digital media. Website designing is also a creative process. Every site has to be aesthetic and present a pleasant user experience to survive. The photos and the social media posts are all creative signatures in many ways. It is in fact only a natural process that the systems of internet transform into an entirely cloud based protocol sometimes in the future. Professional digital artists, writers, photographers, designers, and programmers can hugely benefit from the cloud exploration.
- Reviewing and collaborating becomes easy because all participants access the same creative node through a uniform browser gateway
- File sharing issues disappear effectively in the secured and open system
- No need of running elaborate updates on online software solutions because the cloud runs auto updates
- Browser rendering transmutes into an intrinsic creative development procedure instead of an inconspicuous protocol at the system end
- Optimizing digital file security because there is no danger of losing data on a stolen laptop or a hard drive crash
- Automatic file redundancy options are also available
The technical standardization of online multimedia through HTML5 has been a major catalyst in connecting creativity with the cloud. The incompetency of the Flash systems includes its unavailability on many major mobile platforms and requirements of periodic updates. HTML5 has been a welcome alternative.
