Amazon.com Review

While Adobe Illustrator has traditionally been reserved for the printand prepress marketplace, recent versions have targeted a broader audience,including a growing contingent of new-school Web designers. With the latestincarnation of Illustrator, Adobe aims to please both print and prepressdesigners, as well as cutting-edge Web designer communities. If you're lookingfor a greater Web focus from your vector graphics program, look no further thanIllustrator 10.

For those concerned about Illustrator becoming too Web focused, don't fret. Allof Illustrator's previously existing drawing and text tools remain intact.Version 10 also introduces improved tools for drawing lines, arcs, and grids.These new drawing tools will maximize your productivity and provide an easy wayto create the shapes you want.

In addition to the new drawing tools, Adobe has jumped on the graphics symbolbandwagon by allowing users to save any text object or graphic object as asymbol. Once objects are saved in the Symbol palette, they can be reusedinfinitely, thus providing easier management of files and decreased file size.Users will fall in love with the simple drag-and-drop usability of the symbols,while the newly added Symbol Sprayer lets you easily add multiple instances of asymbol directly into the document.

Adobe has also undertaken the task of minimizing the monotony of tedious andrepetitive design tasks. By taking advantage of Illustrator-supported scriptinglanguages, users can easily automate repetitive tasks by writing scriptsdirectly in Illustrator. Any of the three popular scripting languages--VisualBasic Script, JavaScript, or AppleScript--can be used. When creating a design,users can assign a text object or graphic object to a variable. These variablescan then pull information from any ODBC-compliant database. With this type ofpower, users can easily create templates for documents such as Web pages orproduct catalogs.

In this latest version of Illustrator 10, Adobe has managed to enhance itsexisting drawing tools with powerful productivity aids. By focusing on importantworkflow, productivity, and database-connectivity features, Adobe has given theuser more time to explore new creative possibilities. --Rich Ting ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars possibly the definitive drawing program
Illustrator is probably the BEST product around for anyone seriously creating drawings and artwork on a computer. It packs in all the usual features, Bezier curves, color models, line and artwork control, and it has dozens of nifty new features. These include a powerful macro facility (direct or via Applescript), a rubber stamp like "symbol" facility, artistic styles that can be applied to surfaces, filtering "effects", gradient meshes for creating shaded surfaces, and the ability to define your own keyboard shortcuts.

Yes, it has a serious learning curve. No, it is not a paint program. Yes, it has some flaws and a few bugs. No, you still have to have some artistic ability to use it.

I've tried Freehand, Expression, Corel Draw and several other rivals. They are not bad programs, but they lack the completeness, the immediacy, and the sense of control that you get in Illustrator. If you are serious, you would be hard pressed to do better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, but not without flaws
Seeing as the other "review" here is not particularly helpful or easy on the eyes, I figured I'd write a brief one of my own that will hopefully be useful to someone. :)

Illustrator is, simply, an extremely powerful piece of software. It has some amazing features, both in terms of power and in terms of usability. There are multiple ways to do just about everything, depending on what suits your style of working. You could also spend hours customizing the interface and setting things up the way you like (this could be a pro or a con, depending on how much you value your productivity).

While Illustrator gets high marks for raw power, there is one area where Adobe needs to improve it: stability. I've experienced a few crashes running it under Mac OS X, often while doing very simple operations (i.e. switching between Illustrator and another running task). Illustrator is not multitasking friendly, from my experience. It also doesn't seem to take very good advantage of having a dual processor machine, which is a bit of a shame.

Honestly, though, the stability issues are not enough to warrant less than 5 stars for Illustrator. You can do some amazing stuff with this software, given enough time to learn how to harness all the tools... and given the creative talent to do them justice. Artistic ability not included. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing
My husband and I talked about putting up a barn next to our house for years, but the commitment of hiring a professional architect seemed intimidating - as well as expensive.

CADPro is not just a listing of standard house plans that maybe you will like (or maybe not), it's a real blueprint design program. Yes, it does have some ready made plans, including a pretty cool tree house and outdoor kitchen - but this was not what I wanted.I started by installing the program - with so many buttons and features (over 8,000) I was not sure where to begin.Luckily, CADPro includes a separate training CD (with sound and video) in the box.I watched the individual video lessons while I had the CADPro program open on my computer so I could go back and forth to practice.This is not a program you will fully master overnight.

I still have not used all the features, but I was able to quickly access the tools I needed to design my barn in detail.One of my favorite features is the pop-up photo.By dragging and dropping the camera icon from the toolbar onto the floor plan the program automatically opens My Pictures.Since I wanted a post and beam look on the inside I took a digital photo (taken while eating at my favorite restaurant) and saved it in My Pictures.I also scanned in some photos from a post & beam brochure and popped these in too - there is no limit to the number of photos you can include.The photos show up on the floor plan as little camera icons - by clicking once on the tiny camera the photos open.

Although my intent was to just design my barn using CADPro, I found I could redesign my great room (or other rooms) by using the existing dimensions of my house and creating images of the furniture I already have (with their size to scale).I can now rearrange my furniture to see if it will fit - before I move my sofa 10 times.

I am still waiting to see if the town will approve the building permit for my barn, but I feel better knowing I only invested 70 dollars, and I know exactly how it will look, and what the materials and estimated labor will cost, before they pour the foundation.I would highly recommended this program for anyone who wants to design their own renovation (or house) exactly the way they want, with blueprint results that a contractor can work from.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Worth Upgrading For
Very disappointing release! I have been a GoLive user for going on two years now and after a long waiting period, CS2 is finally upon us. Unfortunately, CS2 did not herald the bug fixes and core improvements so many GoLive users have been waited for.

The most glaring problem is that GoLive CS2 still does not have a history feature. Even ridiculously simple functions like previewing your in-development pages make it impossible to revert to a previous state and undue any mistakes. Perform a find/replace and again, once you commit to the replace you cannot back out of this change and revert to an earlier state.

What is the point of previewing your webpage if you can't go back and correct a mistake? It is this kind of blatant oversight that damns GoLive to being a subpar program that just doesn't feel as intuitive or polished as other Adobe products.

There have been a number of improvements (such as an advanced CSS library) but small tweaks cannot make you overlook the fact that at its core, GoLive CS2 is a buggy and fundamentally broken product that fails to deliver on every level.

Another poor showing. When will Adobe get this right? Not worth the money as a stand alone product and certainly not worth upgrading from CS. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Didn't Meet Expectations
I've been using Illustrator for over three years now... from 9.0 to 10.0 and now CS. While Illustrator does seem to perform faster and it does include the ability to create 3-D objects (which is pretty neat), I was very disappointed with one particular thing. The text now does not display as it should while I'm working on my artwork. Some of my fonts seemed to "bleed", while other fonts just weren't displayed correctly (the height and/or width seemed off). When I print or save the art for the web the results look as they should, but it's really annoying that I can't truly see what the text is going to look like unless I print or view the jpeg/gif file. I'm seriously considering going back to version 10. Not only does it display my artwork exactly as I should expect to see it printed or on the web, but now Flash MX 2004 (another recent upgrade) has supposedly been made to be compatible with Illustrator 10.

5-0 out of 5 stars Adobe Illustrator CS for Macintosh
Adobe's new Illustrator CS brings significant improvements to an already great vector art software. I was quite impressed with Illustrator 10's improvements, and wasn't sure what new features Adobe would put into its next version. Plenty, as it turns out. Here are some new features of Illustrator CS (actually v. 11):

Faster Performance
Illustrator CS is noticeably faster opening, saving, and printing files than its predecessor Illustrator 10. Artwork displays faster, and copying and pasting is speedier.

Expanded Print Capabilities
With Illustrator CS' upgraded print engine you can now achieve fast, consistent, print results with features like Fit to Page, Print Preview, and support for Print settings. These features appear to put Illustrator CS on par with Adobe Acrobat in regard to setting file compression and printing control.

Font Style Display
In its drop-down Font selection menu, Illustrator CS now shows fonts available in your Mac in their actual style. No more guessing how they might look before you select from a list of font names.

Enhanced Adobe PDF file creation
When saving an Illustrator CS document as a PDF file a menu now displays settings and options that are quite similar to Adobe Acrobat Distiller software. This allows making precise adjustments for file compression, adding printer's marks, and setting PDF document security. A convenient feature is that newly created Illustrator PDF's are then auto-launched in Acrobat 6 for immediate review.

Adobe PDF layers support
Similar to PhotoShop, Illustrator lets artwork be created over numerous electronic layers with individual control of the contents contained on each layer. That's not particularly new, however, layered artwork in Illustrator CS saved as a PDF can now be displayed or hidden within Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional.

How might this be useful? One example could be that you need to e-mail a drawing to a client showing multiple design options for a building drawn on different layers in Illustrator. The client won't likely have Illustrator, but will have a copy (or can get a free download) of Acrobat Reader 6. With a multi-layer PDF file the client can turn on, or off, layers to display your different design options.

3D Effects
I love this new feature! From 2-D objects and text you can create custom 3-D shapes and type treatments, add lighting, and then wrap artwork around shapes for packaging mock-ups. The new 3-D features incorporate elements of Adobe's long abandoned Dimensions 3.1 which, while promising, was clunky and rather frustrating to use.

Prior to Illustrator CS, I usually created 3-D static objects by first importing a very basic Illustrator EPS drawing into an expensive 3-D animation program. From there I would perform an Extrude (adding depth to the object) or a Lathe (wrapping the EPS drawing around a center line), rotate the object to a desired angle in the XYZ planes, position the artificial light source(s), and then map artwork to the various surfaces to create the finished product. Now I can do all of that in Illustrator CS. Thank you, Adobe! I'll be interested to see how this feature matures in future versions of Illustrator.

Illustrator's 3-D features come with a price, however. Running this program on my 15", 800 Mhz, G4 iMac required patience as each time a 3-D object was moved or resized on the electronic canvas there was a finger-drumming wait for the vector recalculations to complete. Of course faster Macs (especially the G5's) will mean less wait time with Illustrator 3-D objects.

Video Tour Of New Features
Included with Illustrator CS is a very informative CD video tutorial from Total Training featuring well-known software book author and presenter Deke McClelland. He jumps right into explaining the 3-D features of Illustrator CS, followed by tutorials on the program's built-in filters, font features, printing controls, and exports to PDF and Microsoft Office.

Tighter Microsoft Office integration
When you choose "Save for Microsoft Office" under the File Menu, Illustrator CS exports artwork as a PNG file format which makes it optimized to print and display in Microsoft Office products. Frankly, I'm not so impressed with this feature-but it's probably not Adobe's fault.

Of the applications in the Microsoft Office application suite I use PowerPoint the most. Inserting a PNG (or other raster formats) is fine as long as the background in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint is white. In these Microsoft products all pixel-based images display with a white square or rectangular bounding box-no matter the actual shape of the artwork. In PowerPoint you can use Microsoft's "Set Color Transparency" command to make the unwanted white of the bounding box become transparent so the background shows through. Unfortunately, there remains a white "fringing" all around the artwork boundary.

If Illustrator had a vector graphic export format that would be the same as the vector clip art Microsoft provides for use in its Office products, you would really have something. Vector art from Illustrator, brought into MS Office software, could be scaled up or down in size with no change in resolution. Now that would be a great feature. As it currently stands, you can put a piece of vector art into the Microsoft Clip Art Gallery. But when the artwork is inserted the MS application forcibly rasterizes it with some unwanted results.

Save As Template Command
Illustrator CS lets you reuse designs by saving files as templates that include artboard dimensions, styles, symbols, layers, and more. There are also more than 200 professionally designed templates and over 100 OpenType fonts in addition to clip art and stock photographs - all included free on the installation CD.

Adobe states that Illustrator CS for Macintosh requires a PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 CPU, OS X v.10.2 through v.10.3, 192MB of RAM (256MB recommended), and 470MB of available hard-disk space. For this review, Illustrator CS performed on a G4 800 MHz iMac with 1 GB of memory, running OS 10.2.8.

4-0 out of 5 stars Creative Suite puts Creative juices to work
The Adobe Creative Suite brings many tried, tested and true programs to a new level of functionality and integration. The popular programs, Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, Acrobat and InDesign have been redesigned to make users more efficient and streamline the work. The latest addition to the Adobe family, Version Cue, also makes an appearance. Version Cue is a great server program that allows multiple users to edit and update files simultaneously. (full review @ bytesector.com)

5-0 out of 5 stars Designers Need the Apps and the Price is Good
Everything is in here. All of the design apps are on two installer CDs. Any designer -- whether web or print -- has at least a few of the applications in this suite. You only need to decide if the price is right, and if your current upgrades would make the purchase worthwhile.

Buying this suite is the equivalent of a corporate employee owning Microsoft Office. Adobe's name now equals design software. Knowing Adobe's product line is simply required knowledge. Print houses will accept and produce your files without problems, and multiplatform file transfer can be completed with minimum processing time.

For me, I was using a dated version of Illustrator, PageMaker 6.5, Photoshop Elements. The additional programs and new versions of what I had made the purchase a no-brainer. I also primarily use Dreamweaver, but learning GoLive will help me as I meet with clients. Outside of InDesign and GoLive, every application here is the industry standard, and those two programs are strongly coming into their own.

To explain the virtues of each individual application is not necessary. You know the benefits of Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, and GoLive. InDesign might be new to some of the veterans, but it is beyond a replacement for the inferior PageMaker, and is a force of its own.

With the quality increase of InDesign, designers are now able to choose something besides Quark for their page layout application. Including InDesign here made the purchase for me easy. I have no reason now to piecemeal together my software base.

Each application has all of the features that they have when independently purchased.

I fully recommend "Adobe Creative Suites Premium." Designers need these apps, and so your decision is only about price and value.

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT
I have spent 9 hours in 2 days on the phone with Dell to try to install this piece of s**t. Version Cue will not install nor will photo shop. No 800 number for support from Adobe. Paid for call and recieved many voice ads for products and was told if I need support call at 'top of the hour'. Dell says the problem is in the installer. Adobe Foroums have pointed to the same but no suggestion has worked. Guess I will work on amazon to try to return it for a full refund, it was shipped defective.

Windows XP users beware! You'll need lots of bug killer with this supposed "upgrade" - especially the GoLive module.

Speaking as a long time user of Adobe software (Photoshop since version 3.0) this is the most bloated and unstable iteration ever. The added goodies in Photoshop CS would be great, if my (quite adequate) Dell Workstation didn't freeze up every other minute.

Most annoying of all is a screen redraw problem most visible in GoLive CS; a problem that makes GoLive essentially unusable. If you plan to use GoLive - most especially if you have an NVidia graphics card - visit Adobe.com and look through the GoLive User Forum BEFORE you buy the CS version. LOTS of good reading there.

Adobe has (reluctantly) admitted the screen redraw problem to be a "bug" that they are "working" on... but jeez! Wouldn't that bug have been far better stomped on BEFORE Adobe CS was released onto loyal, trusting Adobe users??

To sum it up - BUYER BEWARE! Check out the Adobe Forums before you shell out your hard earned for Adobe CS, because that's where you'll get the real truth about real-world use. Download the trial version of CS if you can - maybe it will run for you... but if not, no money lost.

For now, I'm thinking it's back to my previous versions so I can at least get some work done. In fact, it's so bad - I'm beginning to consider getting a MAC! Aaaargh!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm Lovin It
I have had the new Adobe Suite for a few weeks now and I am lovin it. I have been onboard since version 4.0 and I must say that the CS upgrade of Photoshop is the most signifigant ever. I use the RAW plug in with my digital Photos now, more then anything else. RAW and 16 bit editing have changed my workflow forever. The LEns Blur filter, the Photo filters, and the awesome filter gallery are extremly useful too. I do not use Illustrator much, I think that I will use it even less now that Photoshop can type on a path, but I did play with the new 3D tool, it is pretty cool and I can't wait to implement it into my designs. I have no opinion of InDesign, I haven't had the need to use it yet. What I have read about it is that the CS version is the final nail in the coffin for Quark. Go Live is great, I appreciate the Smart Objects, and Adobe has finally cleaned up the code that Go Live writes. At first Iwas peeved that they took out Dynamic editing, but I am okay with it now. I use it side by side with my old copy of Dreamweaver so I can get the best of both worlds. Go Live is more designer friendly.
Version Cue is another can't live without addition. All of the sudden, I am organized. Well I could go on forever about why I love the new suite, Adobe did a great job with this one. If you are a designer or student buy this suite, chances are you are already planning too. ... Read more
