The complete design environment for print, Web, and mobile publishing
Adobe ® Creative Suite 2.3 Premium software is a unified design environment that combines full new versions of:
• Photoshop ® CS2
• Illustrator ® CS2
• InDesign ® CS2
• GoLive ® CS2
• Acrobat ® 8.0 Professional
• Version Cue ® CS2
• Adobe Bridge
• Adobe Stock Photos
• Macromedia Dreamweaver 8
Delivering the next level of integration in creative software, Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 enables you to realize your ideas anywhere - in print, on the Web, or on mobile devices.
By far the best design package to date, this is a modernised repack of the 'normal' CS2 Premium pack with Acrobat updated to the latest v8 and the addition of v8 of Dreamweaver by Macromedia, which of course has now been subsumed by Adobe. I anticipate that we are nearing the end of days for GoLive but that's just a theory at present.
The biggest improvements to the pack are, naturally, the benefits of up-to-date versions of the main applications, however, it is also the last big upgrade bundle we are going to see before the release of CS3, which is close enough that we are starting to see some of the publicity, but still far off enough that this bundle is a good buy.
The second bundle to be released that incorporates an ex-Macromedia product (the first being the Video Bundle, which is the Production Studio bundled with Flash v8) this is an ongoing step in the merging of two of the industries greatest names, rivals in their day, and now a joint venture that will undoubtedly lead the way in the years to come.
Overall, an excellent step up, and if you didn't get CS2 earlier, NOW is the time to grab it. It's about the same price at it used to be, but you get a lot more in it, especially with the newest Acrobat thrown in!
