Are you an Acrobat user and needs a complete tool for
your print or web design projects? Read on.
A few months ago, Acrobat launched its main creative
design packages including Photoshop/ImageReady, GoLive,
InDesign and Illustrator. After a long period of silence,
it came up with a much better package.
Adobes Creative Suite now comes in two new packages,
the Standard Edition and the Professional Edition. The
Standard Edition is composed of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe
Illustrator and InDesign. This package contains most
of the print-oriented flagships. On the other hand,
Adobe GoLive and Acrobat Professional comprise the Professional
Edition, which focuses on web design.
Basically, these packages are combinations of the strengths
each application offers. They are integrations of tools
for handling colour management, screen display, type
handling and more. They allow cross-application, meaning
any file done in one program can be opened to the other
programs as long as the file was created on one of the
programs that comprises the packages. When a file is
transferred, all other options can be applied. For example,
when you open an Illustrator file to Photoshop, that
file will be opened as a Photoshop file.
Every creative application on the package uses PDF
file format. Not just a PDF format, they use the latest
PDF 1.5 format. PDF format allows you to import and
export directly. You can embed vector PDFs from Illustrator
and bitmap PDFs from Photoshop in a multi-page InDesign
PDF. This can also be exported for PDF web display or
repurposed via GoLive.
Adobe Creative Suites has a new integrated file management
system, which is essential in the softwares workflow
and tight integration. Different components and versions
of a project are hard to manage, especially when you
are going to use a lot of programs, as in workgroups.
But Adobe has a solution to this, the Version Cue. Version
Cue, through the application of Save dialog, enables
you to store all job elements and important version
of your project. The Open dialog accesses visual thumbnails
of the project file. You will also be warned if other
users are using the same file. In other words, it provides
file versioning and management.
The packages also contain XMP or eXtensible Metadata
Platform standards. This allows you to search for files
according to related information like keywords or authors.
Creative Suite applications are guaranteed excellent
tools to provide you with your desired result. Think
of these packages as the total of all these applications.
