When we brought Adobe and Macromedia together back in 2005, one of the things that most excited me was that I would be working with and helping shape the company that produces the most creative software tools in the world.
In 3 short days, we will be launching what is arguably the most compelling release of Creative Suite to date. I don’t want to spoil any surprises, but I feel this release is going to thrill designers and developers.
Creative Suite 5 not only has a lot of great new capabilities, it also shows how we are transforming our software along three major areas: we are incorporating social computing aspects of doing work across the network, we are increasingly adding cloud based capabilities that complement client side software, and we are enabling creation of content and applications across an increasing number screens.
Social Computing Innovation
Using Creative Suite is typically in the context of a team and in cooperation with clients. We’ve added the ability to do this collaboration from directly within CS5 tools using a new service and in-tool panel called CS Review. For example, you can send out a comp to the client and they can use their web browser to see your work as you post updates directly from Photoshop. At the same time, you can see comments from your client directly in the CS5 authoring tools along with linked highlights in the content itself. This will dramatically speed up production cycles.
