Make Premiere, Audition, and AE icons different colors again
Until this recent update, it was very easy to look at a file and know if it's a Premiere, Audition, or AE File because the icons were different colors. Now that they're all purple, it's a lot harder to tell what type of file I'm looking at, especially if it's a small icon. There also seems to be no benefit to the average user for this change. Please change icons back to their previous colors or any other colors that aren't exactly the same.

put previous icon colors back. Worst design decision ever. horrendous.
Lawrence Kaneshiro commented
Agreed! Put the colors back. Thanks

This happens to me all the time with Dreamweaver and XD as well. So annoying.
So very true. I regularly accidentally open Photoshop when I mean to open Premiere or vice verse. Changing the icons to all be the same look was a weird idea.

One more argument for Resolve: their icon are clear and easy to distinguish.
chris Iacono commented
Agreed! I'm hoping they change the icon colors back with the next update. I've clicked the wrong app dozens of times already.

I literally hate these Icons. these are like children toys kind of logos for the age of 5.There's no more Prestige in their Icons. looks like all the rest of the garbage out there.

I agree, just installed them and they look like were designed by a child... The ones before were just fine, why the need to change something that is not broken??

Why did the color of the Audition app icon change to the same color as After Effects? I liked it more when it was green. It was easier and faster to navigate between apps. Now the only difference is the "e" and "u". Before video was purple and audio green, it was so much easier!

Gotta say... this is a first world problem. :-)
I don't particularly love or hate the new icons... I guess it is nice when they're all different colors... just makes them easier to distinguish.... but wow. The outcry online over this is almost comical. Really?? ALL CAPS? Words like "hate", "unacceptable", "extremely", as well as insults to the Adobe team's intelligence and threats to leave the software? Over icon colors. Wow. I've seen tons of this stuff online, not just this thread. It's somewhat fashionable to bash Adobe online for some reason lately, even though many folks who complain make their living thanks to their products. I don't care what color the icons are (it sounds silly to even bring it up)... this suite is very useful to me. It works well most of the time, and when it doesn't, I just report it here and get on with my work and life. No tantrums necessary.
Uservoice is usually used to voice complaints of some kind: bugs, or rants about missing features... but this user just wants to voice: I APPRECIATE THE HUMANS that sit at computers all day developing these apps for us, and poring through a constant stream of negativity on Uservoice! Thanks for doing a great job and keeping your cool.
Have a great day, Adobe and creators both! :-)

I second that! you can leave the "ME" on Media Encoder, but please change it back. there is a big outcry on Reddit regarding this as well.

It's now really confusing to change between programs. The icons look identical at a glance so cmd+tab switching has become needlessly difficult.
I have no problem with the new look otherwise, but it seems they're now color coded by family which is the opposite of helpful. Randomize those colors and make sure there's some contrast between programs people might have open at the same time.

Design 101 - make icons easy to distinguish at a glance.
Cyndi Bosworth commented
Sorry, I was trying to agree and the bloody page flagged your post. Dang it.
I AGREE... they are awful and these are programs geared towards designers! Come on, seriously?

The most recent June CC update that changed all the program icons is absolutely unacceptable. Recoloring slightly to group programs together is fine, but changing Premiere, After Effects, Character Animator, AME, etc to all the same purple is EXTREMELY unintuitve and awful, workflow-interrupting design. PLEASE change back to their unique colors!
Malo Gaulin-Crespel commented
I'm all in for the change in design, but we still need a clear visual way of dinstiguishing the different softwares.
It doesn't even need to be the old colors, but different colors for the softwares that are commonly used together (Media Encoder / Premiere Pro / After Effects / Audition being the most commonly used for editors) seems really useful.
Please change the colors for the softwares that are commonly used together.

Change the icon colors back to what they were before. The new colors are confusing and make my desktop toolbar on PC and MAC look boring. For a company that makes software specifically for creatives, this is the worst, non-creative, and most frustrating design choice they could have made.
