Adobe overhauls suite for design professionals

Adobe's new offerings combine products from both the former Macromedia and its own portfolio

Suites targeted at Web designers, which can be seen as successors to the former Macromedia product Studio 8, are Creative Suite 3 Web Premium and Creative Suite 3 Web Standard.

The premium product includes Flash Professional, Dreamweaver, Adobe Fireworks, Adobe Contribute, Adobe Photoshop Extended and Adobe Acrobat Professional. The standard edition of the Web suite includes Dreamweaver, Flash Professional, Fireworks and Contribute.

Creative Suite Product Premium is targeted at video developers and is the next-generation version of Adobe's Production Studio, Belohlavek said. The product includes new versions of the following: Adobe After Effects Professional, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop Extended, Adobe Flash Professional, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Soundbooth, Adobe Encore, Adobe OnLocation (Windows only) and Adobe Ultra. Adobe Bridge, Adobe Acrobat Connect, Adobe Stock Photos, Adobe Device Central and Adobe Dynamic Link also are included in the suite.

Finally, Adobe also had created a comprehensive suite called Creative Suite 3 Master Collection that included all of the products of the three premium suites in one package, Belohlavek said.

Adobe expects the print and Web editions of Creative Suite 3 to be available in April or May, with Creative Suite Product Premium and Master Collection to follow about 90 days after, sometime in the third quarter.
