Adobe to take Creative Suite bundles global

After a trial in Italy, Adobe Systems Inc. plans to announce at the end of this month that it will sell its "Creative Suite" collections of professional graphics software worldwide.

The Creative Suite will come in standard and professional editions and include the latest versions of several of Adobe's applications. The suites should be available in October, sources familiar with the San Jose, California, software vendor's plans said.

Creative Suite Standard Edition includes Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Premium Edition adds GoLive and Acrobat 6.0 Professional. Both bundles offer enhancements for users working in teams such as version control for documents, as well as a PDF workflow feature and training information, these sources said.

The bundles are identical to the ones Adobe introduced in Italy in April last year, except that Creative Suite Premium Edition in Italy also includes Premiere, Adobe's video editing application.

In Italy, the full price for Standard Edition is Euro 1,499 (AUD$2,543) and Premium Edition costs Euro 1,799 ($3,052), according to Adobe Italy's online store. Pricing for the bundles that will be sold worldwide is expected to be similar. Adobe is also expected to offer discounted upgrade pricing for current customers.

Adobe officials declined to comment for this story.

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.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
