Adobe Creative Suite 3 Pre-launch Quickbits

With Adobe set to launch its new update to its Creative Suite product line on March 27, 2007 (3:30pm ET), here are some nice bits of info I could share which are NDA-safe:

  • Similar to Windows Vista, CS3 will have different flavors. There will be a total of 6 options available.
  • Adobe Illustrator, a long-time favorite vector tool for graphic designers will have an edition that is targeted for a totally different user segment.
  • 3 former Macromedia tools are included in the suite
  • And consistent to Adobe’s overall direction, CS3 looks outside of the PC.

Incidentally, the Adobe User Group – Philippines will be having a mini-CS3 launch/get together on March 28, 2007 (7:30pm) at the Mob at Market! Market! at the Fort. For those interested in seeing what’s new with Adobe CS3, feel free to drop by.

  • Does anyone else other than me feel like this is an unneccesarry upgrade that’s just gonna eat more memory off your vista-fied PCs? Just saying.

  • bit

    I believe Mac users will enjoy CS3 with it being natively compatible with Intel Macs.

    hay… mag u-upgrade na naman ng ram.. not!

  • poipoi, i think p4 and amd(sempron) processors can take the power of cs3

    bit, i agree with you

    ryan, well, it will depend on the user. we just have to wait and try it. ^^

  • Hi Ryan,

    You should check out the new features of the CS3 tools. A good example is AJAX integration in Dreamweaver CS3. 🙂
