5-0 out of 5 stars Must Have Product for Digital Video and Digital Camera Users
Easy Media Creator 7 integrates several full-featured applications together to create a software suite with a consistent user experience. In no time, I was using it and creating projects with it. I use Creator Classic all the time to burn data and music to CD and DVD and appreciate the automated backup feature. Even though I use those features all the time, I really bought Media Creator 7 for all the great digital media creation tools.

Photosuite is a wonderful photo-editing product. Since I am a casual point and shoot digital photographer, I use the autofix option all the time to clean up my pictures, plus of course the red eye removal tool and the clone tool (to remove the date/time stamp I forgot to turn off in some of my pictures). I use VideoWave to transfer/capture my video to my PC, and then edit it down to remove unwanted video clips. I also use it to add text using different fonts, styles and effects, plus add transitions between clips, and background sound tracks. When complete, I then send the output to DVDBuilder for authoring to DVD.

I could go on and on how I use it, but the bottom line, this product is outstanding. It is loaded with excellent features and is a must have product for transforming your digital content to marvelous DVD movies or slide shows.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Use, Great Features and for the Price it's a Bargain
Easy Media Creator 7 offers an easy to learn and understand interface that enables you to quickly use any of the applications that make up this integrated software suite. My daughter just graduated from high school and this weekend I created a video comprised of digital photos and video clips, select music, transitions, titles, etc. all blended together of all the events this past month leading up to graduation. I am so proud of my daughter but also have great pride and sense of accomplishment in what I just did by creating a great looking video that I burned to DVD.

Roxio provides many materials to help you find all the answers, such as how-to video tutorials, and PDF user guides. The Roxio web site knowledgebase also helps you find answers to any questions, and if you still need help, I found their tech support email responses were quick, only taking 1-2 days to get answers.

I recommend this product for people at all levels.

5-0 out of 5 stars CD and DVD Media Creation Just Got Easy
Creator 7 has so many great features and capabilities that I suggest you do as I did and read the many pro reviews that thoroughly put the program through its paces. For me, my favorite and most frequently used component is storyboard, which enabled me to combine digital photos, video clips, and songs into a slideshow. It has creative features that include the ability to add transitions, titles, and a narration track. Then using the DVDbuilder component, I can create VCDs or DVDs to master my slideshow creation to disc. Overall, this is a great product for anyone dabbling or serious about working with digital media.

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommend it to everyone
Installed fine on my XP system, although it was a slow process. Nice interface and the tutorials and help files made it easy to learn. Use Creator classic, Photosuite Videowave and DVDbuilder all the time and everything has worked flawlessly. Haven't used all the other features yet, but its nice to know they're there when needed. What a deal - all these features for the low cost.

5-0 out of 5 stars works great after upgrade
had problems out of box ( mostly with DVD-r burning ) but after a 53MB download from website it's working great. Very easy to use compaired to others I've tried (U-lead, Movie maker). Tutorials are weak, more of an overview of what you can do than a how to, but help files are good. Great product for the money! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Software
This software Create PDF files from almost any word processing or html programs with very effective compression ratio almost 1/10 the original size. You can also convert post script ps files into PDF files. You can extract pictures, text from any already created PDF files as well.
With this version you can also create an interactive electronic forms similar to the tax forms. This upgrade version will only install on your system if you have Adobe acrobat 4 or 5 installed. This version only works with windows XP, 2000, NT with latest service package.
The difference between the acrobat 6.0 and the acrobat 5.0 is not so big. The new version is optimized for intel P4 systems and it's slightly faster than the old version.

3-0 out of 5 stars Upgrade is no help for Real Estate
As a Realtor who is pushing the envelope, attempting to move to digital file keeping, digital recording, digital faxing, and digital signing, the concept of Adobe Acrobat is extremely helpful. I've been using Adobe Acrobat since version 4. Version 5 was a very useful upgrade, worth every cent. Version 6 was a grand waste of money and has turned into a waste of time. Files take longer to save in Adobe Acrobat 6, but they do end up being smaller, so maybe there is a more advanced compression algorithm at work. Nevertheless, files do take about twice as long to save in the new version.

Furthermore, at least for my line of work, I see no useful additions to the software. The interface looks a little fancier, and a little more advanced with more curved lines and a splash screen with transparency...(everybody together now, "Oooooh, aaaaaaah"). But, at least for my line of work, I have not seen any productivity or security upgrades which make the investment worthwhile. Save yourself the money and stay with version 5.0.

Unfortunately, it seems that the other reviewers' negative comments are right on the money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money.
I bought the 6.0 upgrade without reading the reviews. Woe to the foolish. It slowed WORD to a crawl, brought DtSearch to it's knees, and twice locked my system up so tightly I couldn't get the task manager open.

I didn't waste any additional time seeing how slow it was at its own tasks. I'll take everyone's word for it.

Less than one day on the machine. I've gone back to 5.0.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lasted 1 day on my PC
I downloaded an evaluation copy of Acrobat 6 before I read the reviews here. I can confirm what others are saying: unlike the upgrade from 4.0 to 5.0, 6.0 doesn't offer the average user additional usefulness over 5.0.

It's also much slower to load and takes twice as long to creat .pdf files. The interface is completely different, so there will be a steep learning curve for users upgrading from previous editions. Sometimes, software developers just screw one up, and this one is such an upgrade.

Pay close attention to the features you need: If you just want to print files to .pdf, you don't need all the stuff 6.0 offers. You'll never use 80% of the features they've added.

After one day, I got frustrated, realized I didn't have the time to learn an entirely new piece of software so that I could simply continue to make .pdf files, and uninstalled it.

Lesson learned: Check for reviews FIRST.

5-0 out of 5 stars Here is the Skinny on the Deal
By the time I was done reading the reviews for Adobe Acrobat 6.0 I was depressed. Not only do I not have Windows XP, or Windows 2000, or NT installed in my machine (The only operating systems that will work with 6) I also couldn't muster up the confidence in the product after so many people were giving it the thumbs down. I want to create an eBook, and Adobe Reader is the most popular reader out there, with some 400 million, to a half a billion users with it installed. What a dilemma. I kept coming back to read some more. Finally I found the answer. I bought a new Adobe Acrobat 5.0 here at Amazon from one of their vendors, and it works great with my Windows 98SE. I planned on buying the 6.0 upgrade after they got the bugs out, and or I got a new computer with XP. Then I found out that 5.0 was the only version before, and that was the professional version. 6.0 Standard is a geared down version of 5. Ok, so it has some additional features, but it is missing even more of them.
So what's the skinny on the deal? For what I paid for a new 5 that is the full program, unregistered, and upgradeable, plus what I would have to pay here at Amazon for the 6 Professional Upgrade, I saved 80 bucks, and wound up with both versions 5 and 6 pro. Which as I mentioned are both professional versions. If I bought 5 and upgraded to 6 standard, I would only spend a little more for both versions. (About 4 percent more for standard, and about 20 percent less for professional) That way if 6 standard turned out to be as bad as many were saying it is, I would have 5 also.
In the final analysis, I am using 5 and am super excited about the new capabilities that Adobe Acrobat gives you. I'm hoping that by the time I get a new machine with XP on it, Adobe will come out with 6.something, or a second edition of 6 etc. with the fixes built in.
I'm not the only one to come to this conclusion. I noticed in the sales rank at the time I bought it and wrote this review, that 5 was outselling 6. Also I noticed that in the "Those who bought 5 also bought this" section, it had a special note that said, 47% of the people who bought 5 also bought the 6 upgrade. If your running XP, 2000, or NT, get them both. That way all the bases are covered.
Check out the reviews on 5 you'll be surprised how everybody raves about it. To be perfectly honest with you, if I had an XP machine, I would have ordered the 6 upgrade at the same time. Hope this helps. ... Read more

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.

Amazon.com Review

Adobe may have the lock on professional graphics production withPhotoshop, but it has long been engaged in a drawn-out battle with Quark for thehearts and wallets of the desktop publishing crowd. PageMaker 7.0, Adobe'slatest effort in the desktop publishing arena, won't set it ahead of QuarkXPress4.1, but it does have plenty of appeal for small businesses and other audiencesthat have minor publishing needs.

PageMaker 7.0's user guide measures in at more than 400 pages, and itthoughtfully explains every aspect of the vast and complex program. A wide rangeof impressive-looking templates, which cover just about every type of documentimaginable (including business cards, labels, newsletters, ads, posters, andmore), makes PageMaker a little more accessible to users unfamiliar with itsfunctionality. The templates are divided into various levels of complexity, withthe lowest level containing helpful annotations for novice users.

While its improvements over version 6.5 are minimal, PageMaker 7.0 makes a fewworthy strides to justify its sparkly new version number. Among the most welcomeis a surprisingly intuitive data merge feature, which allows users to configuretarget areas in their publications and import respective fields from aspreadsheet or database. Unfortunately, it only recognizes comma-delineated CSVor TXT files; it doesn't import data directly from common file formats createdby Microsoft Excel or Lotus 1-2-3.

Ironically, another area of improvement in PageMaker 7.0 is compatibility withother programs. It easily imports and handles layered image files fromIllustrator and Photoshop 5.0 and 6.0, and features input converters for filescreated in QuarkXPress and Microsoft Publisher. PageMaker's PDF exportcapabilities have been enhanced both in the main program and with the includedAcrobat Distiller applet, allowing users to configure security and embedded tagoptions.

Even with its plethora of templates, PageMaker 7.0 isn't by any means anentry-level application. Nonprofessional users who have never used a high-caliberdesktop publishing program should probably consider a simpler package such asMicrosoft Publisher. While hardened, professional magazine designers tend toprefer QuarkXPress, Adobe PageMaker 7.0 is nonetheless a complex and powerfultool that packs a serious learning curve.

PageMaker 7.0 is perfect for small businesses that can't afford to hire outdesigners for promotional materials, or for companies that have the need tocreate professional-looking PDF files. Owners of PageMaker 6.5 might not feelcompelled to upgrade, but companies and creative folks newly in the market for amuscular desktop publishing tool will be well served by PageMaker 7.0. --JoelDurham Jr. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Upgrade Makes PageMaker a More Viable Product
Having worked in document production for ten years, using QuarkXpress, MSPublisher, and PageMaker on a daily basis, I have to say my preferred program has become PageMaker and the 7.0 upgrade confirms that. Most designers will say QuarkXpress is better but I have always found PageMaker to be easier to use because of its easy integration with the two other "musts" for design and illustration...Photoshop and Illustrator. The 7.0 version adds some more bells and whistles, updates some clunky code, and provides even better conversion capabilities. PageMaker is a very powerful program for the price and I have been able to use it for everything from large format posters to 2000 page technical manuals. PageMaker is by no means a beginner's program. The interface is pretty standard as far as layout programs go and you will find it familiar if you use other Adobe software... but there are many less obvious features that will be discovered only through regular use of the program or a detailed reading of the manual.

3-0 out of 5 stars Have you ever heard of MS Publisher.
I have written almost three reviews for this product so far and Amazon did not post not even one of them. I have been using this product since version 6.0 and I have been using Publisher since version 3.0 and to be honest, I always preferred Publisher, PageMakers limited GUI, always made it difficult for me to understand and use. Adobe said that its aiming for the small business and home user, but what I think they are actually aiming for is our money. PageMaker has reached a stage in life where it is being abandoned and dethroned by leading and popular DTP prgrams such Quark, Publisher and even Adobes own Indesign. If I were to suggest a DTP program for small businesses and home users it would be Microsoft Publisher, its easy to use, cost less and does the same thing like PageMaker. If you won't a more flexible, powerful, well known product go for Quark. Why I do not really recommend the really highend programs is because their, price, non-intuitiveness. People want something that they are already familiar with.

4-0 out of 5 stars Down With Quark!!!
PageMaker is simply a smarter, more logical and better program than Quark... by a wide margin. We are dumping Quark across the board, and nearly all print shops in our region accept files in PM7.0 for Windows (a big change from a few years ago). They are telling us that many of their customers are switching from Quark to PageMaker. And why not? Going pure Adobe for a fully integrated DTP operation makes perfect sense. Adobe is also far more responsive (and receptive) to customers than the Quark people.

1-0 out of 5 stars I would like to be able to do a review--but can't!
I ordered this item on August 7th, today is Sept. 8th, my credit card has been billed, but I still do not have the product. I was eager to obtain this item since I've previously (and very happily) used an older version of Pagemaker on my Mac, and have lamented not having this software for my PC. My estimated 4 to 14 days cited in the order info has long passed, but I'm still patiently (?) waiting.

4-0 out of 5 stars Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Myths Dispelled
I have written this review to correct errors or omissions in some of the previous reviews.
PageMaker will accept native Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files, Word or Publisher won't.
PageMaker will easily load and handle huge documents which would make Microsoft Word or Publisher simply crash.
PageMaker gives the user the ability to identify all of the graphics placed in a document and update them at will without dragging the computer down.
The GUIs for both Word and Publisher are ugly and impossible to learn. These programs are classic examples of very basic initial functionality with random add-ons.
Although, initially, the PageMaker GUI seems sparse, after multiple sessions and a little experimentation one soons learns that the program requires very few mouse clicks or commands to get things done.
Okay, so PM is a little long in the tooth, after all it is the original DTP killer app for the Mac. However. I think you'll find that PageMaker gives the user the freedom to design and produce beautiful looking documents, instead of shackling them to the whims and constructs of Word or Publisher.

Amazon.com Review

InDesign 2.0 is all about creative page layout. A high-end desktoppublishing product, it is aimed squarely at professional designers who needmaximum flexibility alongside strong document management and support forindustry standards.

Eye-catching features such as transparency and blending are combined with moremundane--but important--abilities such as table of contents and indexgeneration, to make this a more complete and rounded product than earlierversions. It also benefits from integration with other Adobe products such asPhotoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, and Acrobat. Adobe maintains a consistent userinterface across the range, easing the learning process.

The heart of a desktop publishing product is typography, for which InDesign issecond to none. The software offers fine control over drop capitals, kerning,tracking, justification, and scaling. OpenType fonts offer advanced featuressuch as contextual alternative characters, which automatically insert ligaturesor other special glyphs according to their place within a word. The paragraphcomposer optimizes spacing and hyphenation for an entire paragraph,retrospectively reformatting earlier lines as you type.

A great feature of InDesign is that imported graphics remain editable. Forexample, InDesign has its own excellent tools for drawing shapes and paths, soyou can import an Illustrator drawing and continue to work on it. Thetransparency options not only let you control opacity, but also offer specialeffects such as drop shadows, feathering, and multiple blending modes such assoft or hard light. InDesign has complete support for professional printingstandards, but Adobe also delivers on cross-media choices, such as PDF, HTML,and SVG, which is an emerging standard for Web graphics. There is also an optionto import, export, and edit XML, with exciting possibilities for repurposingcontent.

InDesign 2.0 is ideal for magazines, advertisements, and brochures. For books ormanuals, something like Adobe FrameMaker is a better choice. InDesign offersstrong competition to the market-leading Quark XPress, and the fact that itssystem requirements are heavier is perhaps balanced by the fact that InDesign ishalf the price of Quark. Convenience features such as multiple undo and redomake InDesign a pleasure to use. Creativity in print has never been easier.--Tim Anderson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars InDesign vs. Quark (a beginner's perspective)
I'm currently studying graphic design and have learned InDesign before learning Quark, and the differences amaze me. InDesign is by far the better product: Photoshop and Illustrator files can be dragged and dropped into an InDesign document; frames work for either text or graphics; onscreen viewing has several options from proxy to high-resolution; the list goes on. It has the same Adobe interface as their other products and has a far more advanced drawing tool than Quark. It doesn't offer the character attributes that Quark does - you have to have the bold/italic version of a font to print it that way, unlike Quark's forced attributes ability - but it really does seem to be miles ahead in its details and options. Plus, as a student, it's a much more affordable program than Quark, and it interacts with the other Adobe products so well that I found I was already ahead of the game. I heard that the first version of InDesign was really buggy, but the same people and instructors have had nothing but unbridled praise for version 2.0 .

5-0 out of 5 stars The new king of DTP
This product has to be the most amazing page layout program ever created.
The features literally overflow and present you with virtually unlimited options for complete creative freedom. The new transparency effects are unbelievable for a dedicated page layout application. This cuts down dramatically the need to switch between photoshop for applying effects such as drop shadows, feathering etc.
Adobe has really outdone themselves with this one, and anyone who believes QuarkXpress is still the best needs to take a serious look at this. Quark 5 is better than quark 4.1 but still doesnt come close to this level of brilliance.
The PDF output is absolutely first class, and preserves every aspect of the document from finely graduated transparency effects to the brilliant typography.
This is a major bonus for users who publish detailed PDF files, and this makes proofing before printing an absolute pleasure.
For such brilliance you would expect to pay a lot more than $699 and at this price this product is an absolute bargain for any self respecting creative professional.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't people read the manual any more?
InDesign doesn't need any help from me, but the negative review below was a little annoying. The writer doesn't seem to have tried very hard to learn the program. A) ID does support bold and italic for fonts that have the style -- that's what "character styles" are for. Those who prefer "fake fonts" shouldn't be using a high-end typesetting program. B) Image resizing is done by percentages (context menu in Windows, not sure about Mac). It takes a bit of math, but it allows you to size images _precisely_. C) If you insist on using EPS output, the "Package" command sends all the linked files to CD, but PDF is a better option most of the time. D) Who leaves all the palettes turned on? Merge or hide them and save your setup.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Pain is GONE for Pagemaker users!
I admit, I'm one of those terrible, hated Mac users.... the type that adopted only AFTER OS X came into existence because OS 9 could not compete with what was available for PC....

Still, when I switched (and I'll never go back), a lot of products weren't yet available for X, including InDesign. Since my primary occupation is copy-editing, that meant I had to have PageMaker 7.0 for OS9....

I hated it. At the end of my last PM project, I downloaded the evaluation version of InDesign 2.0 and promptly fell in love.

If Pagemaker seems kludgy, slow, buggy.... switch. Eat ramen and Mac and Cheese for a month if that's what it takes, but switch. You won't regret it if you have to do any type of editing or layout!

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible functionality
Previous negative reviews mentioned linked text files--I ran into this once, asked on Adobe Forums how to fix it, and someone provided me almost instantly with a little script that "embeds" all my text files instantly with one click. Another way to avoid it is to copy and paste your text rather than placing it.

Resizing images? Easy! You can resize the frame and fit to the frame, resize the image and fit the frame to the image, you can resize both simulatenously, you can even create a star-shaped frame and place an image into it! Your frame can have a feathered or rounded edge if you want, etc. I've never had a problem resizing images quickly and easily.

Type styles: The workarounds for this are much more printer friendly. Want a bold? Make a character style that "strokes" the outline of the font with a .1 or .25 point stroke. You can just eyedropper it in place where you need it or create a paragraph or character style to place it. Need a faux italic? Same thing...just "slant" the text in the character box.

Of course the character and paragraph styles are separate! They'd be too big otherwise! Most of the time I'm just using paragraph styles--I don't need to see the character styles. If I need to do both, I just undock the character style palette and then both are visible at once. I can even dock them together "stacked" without difficulty so they're not floating separate but both are visible.

Too many palettes? Close the ones you don't use. Minimize the ones you infrequently use. Note that the upcoming version, InDesign Creative Suite will allow for even more docking options, so you can choose how it looks.

Optical Kerning? Works great on my printer, I don't know what's wrong with yours. When I look at similar documents pre and post InDesign, I'm blown away by how much BETTER the ID documents always look.

Underline text? What's wrong with ctrl alt U? You can also set a character style for underlining, and eyedropper from one place to the next.

Gimmicky CD covers? We do a trade journal, myriad ads, newsletters, marketing in InDesign and they've never looked better or gone together faster.

I've used PageMaker. This program is to PageMaker what PageMaker was to the older versions of Publisher. It is so much faster, easier and more intuitive. No more repetitive stress injuries for me from doing the same key combos over and over and over again. I use about 1/8th the number of clicks I needed before to accomplish the same task. There are tasks I never would have bothered trying in PageMaker. And those who've used both Quark and InDesign by and large say ID has far more features and is much better to use. ... Read more

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

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.

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.

1-0 out of 5 stars BE AFRAID! BE VERY AFRAID!
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
