Adobe unleashes Creative Suite 5

Adobe has launched the fifth incarnation of its Creative Suite collection of professional applications for print and Web designers and videographers.

This set of coordinated programs, popularly called Adobe CS5, includes new versions of 14 products and their associated apps, four new online services, and a brand new interactive Web design product.

The new CS5 veers in a somewhat different direction than earlier versions with a specific concentration on online services and Web analytics. Creative Suite 5 products, for the first time, include access to Omniture technologies—Web utilities that capture, store, and analyze information generated by Web sites and other sources.

The updates in CS5—more that 250 new features have been integrated throughout the Master Collection of all programs—address not only technical changes in hardware capabilities to make them faster and more efficient, but also strive to solve workflow problems.
