Adobe creative suite 4 design standard

Not a giant leap for Adobe, but generally a step in the right direction For Covers all aspects of print and web design Good integration between programs You may like the new interface Suite saves money on multiple apps… Against …but it's still quite pricey Some apps haven't moved on much They're not the only choices for designers, but Adobe's applications are among the best, and no other company can offer such a comprehensive range.

The Creative Suite brings them together in one box, or rather a choice of six boxes. Design Premium Design Premium has the broadest appeal.

Like all the suites, it also includes Device Central, which helps you create and test multimedia content for mobile phones and other gizmos; Version Cue, for central management of files used by creative teams; and Bridge, an integrated file browser.

Most of the applications share a common user interface, which has been completely redesigned. Instead of toolbars and palettes or panels, as Adobe calls them floating around your screen, they're all contained within a window, the Application Frame. Documents appear in tabs, rather like tabbed web pages in Safari. We suspect this may be the way of the future; it feels weird at first, but it's easier to manage.

Useful tools The Application Bar at the top is harder to defend, awkwardly combining options that are duplicated elsewhere, and we're uneasy about Adobe introducing its own user interface elements into Mac OS X.

Bridge, though easily overlooked, is rather good at previewing lots of files quickly. It's also very easy to customise the workspace and switch between different arrangements for different tasks; this is true of the other apps, too, with varying degrees of usefulness. You can annotate the display and use built-in text chat and webcam support.

The remote image doesn't update quite fast enough for live demos, with just over a second's delay, but this could be really useful for discussing and presenting work. Steep prices Overall, Creative Suite seems expensive for the small studio or freelance designer, and the upgrade pricing is steep. We'd like to see prices lowered. Nonetheless, you're getting a feature-packed set of pro apps, and while it may not be an essential, Creative Suite 4 is the obvious choice for anyone who's serious about design.
