Adobe releases Creative Suite 4

Point products can be upgraded separately

Adobe has announced the next generation of its flagship design software product suite – Creative Suite 4 which has components for print, Web, mobile, film and video production.

The Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection CS4 combines most of Adobe's new applications in a single box.

Adobe president and CEO Shantanu Narayen said designers and developers are shaping the way people consume information, share ideas, sell products, and create memorable experiences.

“Whether you’re creating a rich Internet application, a video or a best-selling magazine, Adobe Creative Suite 4 delivers powerful cross-media technologies that have the ability to elevate products, brands and ideas above the clutter,” Narayen said.

Customers can choose from six suites or full version upgrades of 13 stand-alone CS4 applications, including Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Dreamweaver, After Effects, and Adobe Premiere Pro.

CS4 also includes a simplified workflow to enable users to design across media by making it easier to switch between mediums without leaving a project.

The CS4 suite and point products are scheduled to ship in October.

Adobe Flash Player 10 is available in beta as a free download from Adobe Labs. General availability expected by the end of 2008.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
