I notice that in Adobe Creative Cloud update panel I can install Xd CC - Design, prototype and share user experiences.

What does this software do and is it worth installing ?

Suggest checking out the description and tutorials. It is not directly related to photo DAM or editing.

What is Adobe XD?

Thanks for the response. However, I found the Adobe "tutorial" most uninformative. The narrator sounded like she was reading from a script and had no idea what it was either.

It's for designing stuff, whether websites or mobile apps, etc. Unless that's the kind of thing you do, there's no need to install.

It's a way for designers, who can't code or can't use Illustrator or Photoshop, to mock up how an app should look, so it comes with pre-built UI elements that they can drag into a layout. They can then hand off the layouts they have "designed" (in the sense of drawing) to someone who actually "designs" (in the sense of coding) the app. Maybe there is a market out there, but by the time someone is skilled up in XD they could probably have learnt enough Illustrator or Photoshop or had time to sit down with the designers?
