It’s a busy day for technology reporters today, with big announcements coming from both Adobe and Google. Today marks the official introduction of Creative Suite 4 (CS4) from Adobe. This new suite of software, tools and technologies is geared to ease the transition of content from print, to the web, to the interactive world. CS4 comes in four main editions:
- Design Premium
- Web Premium
- Production Premium
- Master Collection
The full suite, packaged as the Master Collection, contains thirteen individual products, fourteen technologies, and seven hosted services. Together these elements are designed to streamline the designer/developer workflow, saving time, promoting integration and creating content that easily scales across media and devices. The preview this morning was impressive, particularly for the enhancements that allow export from InDesign directly to Flash, and for the content-aware image editing functions that were added to Photoshop. It’s worth checking out on Adobe TV.
