    Amazon.com Review

    Adobe has taken GoLive, its Web design and management tool, and improvedits integration with other applications, adding a number of useful extras in theprocess. In addition to the design elements of the program, GoLive 6.0 includessections devoted to Web site management and maintenance, as well as teamcollaboration.

    The main working area of the program deliberately looks much like other Adobeapplications, making it easy to move between them. The main editing windowsfloat on the GoLive worktop, with palettes of functions controlling the tools.Users can now drag and stash palette tabs individually at the edge of thescreen.

    The key new features of GoLive 6.0 can be divided into three areas. Under thedesign-and-develop category comes greatly improved table handling, with newediting features--particularly selection--and increased control of HTML code.Adobe has also integrated GoLive more closely with Photoshop, Illustrator, andLiveMotion.

    Manage functions govern how several people working on same aspect of a sitehandle different versions and revisions. The revision list is a good example, asit offers full details of who made certain changes to what, along with the timethe changes were entered.

    Finally, there's the deploy function, for when you finally launch your site.This feature offers new and improved support for WML authoring, writing fordisplay on WAP devices, XML, QuickTime, and more of the growing family of Webstandards.

    Overall, GoLive is a worthwhile improvement if you're thinking about upgradingfrom a previous version. For newbies, make sure you're serious about Web sitemanagement, as this is a heavyweight tool. --Simon Williams ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars disappointing-a mistake
    Unfortunately, I purchased this program because of Adobe's reputation. Maybe Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat are great programs, but adobe has really struck out with golive. it has a clunky interface. the ftp browser hangs on me everytime I upload.
    the interface is not intuitive. when I edit pages, strange glitches occur.Shareware programs are easier to use, although not as feature rich as golive. Most of the experienced web designers I have talked to recommend dreamweaver. it looks like I will have to buy Dreamweaver

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great web application for designers
    If you love photoshop, illustrator, InDesign... you should use GoLive for your webs. Some will say this application is difficult to learn and overburdened with adobe-style tool palettes, and this is fair criticism. If you are a photoshop user and have spent the many hours and weeks it takes to become proficient at using Adobe's GUI, then move to GoLive and you will quickly find yourself at home.

    If you consider yourself more a designer than coder, and you like designing with Adobe software, then GoLive will let you work the way you like to work. Also, from version 5.0 to 6.0, the coding compatibility has improved, particularly javascript.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A VERY UN-intuitive product!!
    THis is the worst of the lot. I had used Adobe's PageMill to make tons of websites but now that I've upgraded everything to OSX on my computer, I thought it would be a good idea to do that with my web design program.
    Buzz,...big mistake!!
    Go Live is SO complicated, it's impossible for me to put together a website.
    I can't seem to figure out anything in this program.
    I've been long time user of Photoshop, Illustrator and AfterEffects, but GoLive is destined to go in the round file.

    (wastebasket)
    Come on Adobe! Put something out there that we can use for web design that doesn't give everyone that uses it a big headache that makes them incapable of producing anything that can be uploaded quickly. Speed is everything! I don't want to spend my life trying to figure out ONE application!!!
    PLEASE make it simpler!!!!
    No update purchase for me.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Much too much of a good thing
    If you're a Mac user I presume you have little interest in unneccessary complexity--and GoLive delivers a level of complexity & difficulty that would make Microsoft proud.

    If designing web pages is your life this may be what you need. And believe me, it WILL be your life for months after you start using this application. You'll get to know every member of the GoLive support team on a first-name basis.

    For the rest of us, please, Adobe, make a GoLive Elements program or bring back PageMill.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless. Money better spent elsewhere
    The Adobe team has a way of creating complexities for no particular reason. GoLive drowns in its own muli-tier, reverse-logical design. The development team has obviously intended this program to be used by those totally unfamiliar with the concept of straightforward thinking. Every moment using this software is agonizing and frustrating. It boggles the mind to even imagine the possibility of an Adobe team with usability as part of their gameplan. Please stay far away from GoLive. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Don't forget to factor in manuals to the final price.
    I grew up on Adobe products. They used to include great manuals and tutorials. Now I have paid more and received less. I am trying to learn how to use GoLive but the online manual doesn't make a whole lot of sense. How come a printed manual isn't included? Oh, I have to pay more for it? How come I seem to be paying for printing costs then? Customer support? To get real help I'll have to pay for it. I used Adobe Premiere for Mac but that product got abandoned. I will not buy another Adobe product until they either give more or charge less. If you are getting started with web design I would suggest going somewhere else. That being said... Illustrator and Photoshop are both still great products and the upgrades were easy for me to understand (probably because the last versions I had included a printed manual and tutorials). Let's face it, if it wasn't for OS X, I would have just stuck to the older versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and PageMaker and bought Dreamweaver instead. Photoshop CS - Classroom in a Book = $45. Illustrator CS - Classroom in a Book = $31.50. GoLive CS - Classroom in a Book = $45. InDesign - Classroom in a Book = $45. Acrobat Pro - Classroom in a Book = $45. $211.50 in manuals right there. Its a good product but it keeps on costing you in time and money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent design software
    No software is perfect, but Adobe comes as close to well designed, intuitive, user-friendly software as I have ever seen. Photoshop and Illustrator have always been the industry standards, and here they are both improved - particularly the digital photographer will be happy with the new photo filters in Photoshop CS, and the much improved file browser and the new filter gallery are also excellent additions. As far as publishing programs are concerned, InDesign is a greatly more intuitive program than Quark at a fraction of its cost, and because its pallets function much the same as in Photoshop and Illustrator, it is an easily acquired program if you are familiar with Adobe software.

    I use these programs on a Mac OS X platform and for me they are very stable. I have had none of the crashing problems or tech support difficulties that another reviewer of the Adobe Creative Suite has had. For anyone using many design programs at once, enough RAM is always a requirement for smooth operation. But if you have enough RAM and a Mac platform, you should have no significant problems at all. PCs crash more by their nature because their operating system is not as stable as a Mac's, but still Adobe products are not only more intuitive than Microsoft's (for example), they also will crash far less on a PC than most other types of software (like Microsoft's).

    Photoshop and Illustrator have always defined the state of the art for photo editing and raster graphic software respectively, and here Adobe is carrying on the tradition. InDesign looks as though it is fast replacing Quark in the publishing industry as well, so if you are a creative professional you will be more than happy in the end to own the Adobe Creative Suite. What else would you use?

    1-0 out of 5 stars i used to like adobe...
    ...then i needed to contact their technical support because illustrator crashes when you try to label layers. they go out of their way to make it as difficult as possible. no email support. instead you have to ring an area code 206 number and wait until some overworked undertrained person tells you to reinstall the product or the operating system... very helpful. just like their software.

    i'll look elsewhere the next time i look for an illustration package or a graphics editor. and i won't even bother discussing their inept page layout program.

    4-0 out of 5 stars glad I got it
    I just bought it off of AMazon a week ago (which is the lowest price for the full version I have been able to find so far) and IM glad I did. For new people to the software, you may wanna stay with your older version for a bit and just get used to it before shelling out the money, but if your serious about design and making your workflow work to the max for you, this new collection is a must. Tight integration and the help of the version Cue additional file managment software will help even the messiest designer keep thier files inline. If design is what you want to do, then theres no better package to get. Ive been using Photoshop for years and Illustrator and Indesign for a while now and this is defenitly an inovation in design.
    I gave it 4 stars due to small problems I had installing the whole suite at once. I have never had the problem with anything else and it was frustrating. But after that its smooth saling. ... Read more

    after using frontpage (on windoze), dreamweaver, and trying golive I thought I'd give this a try. Within a few minutes I had a very nice, original site I'm actually proud of.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Learning Organic Chemistry While Drunk Would Be Easier
    I am 3/4 the way through the Classroom in a Book on Adobe GoLive CS. To say that the workbook and the software is NOT user-friendly is a gross understatement. It's probably easier to read a 1,000 page book on HTML, JAVA, etc. programming that slog through this software. And I haven't even installed it. Complexity does not imply sophistication, at least not in this situation. This is Rube Golberg at its worst. WIth hundreds of pop up windows and subwindows, none of it intuitive, one suspects that the company geeks had fun creating this darling of theirs without considering the consumer.

    This is definitely not a software for a novice.

    1-0 out of 5 stars don't believe the marketing hype!
    I'm a GoLive user from way back, when the product was called CyberStudio and the company that wrote it was called GoLive (before Adobe bought them out). GoLive got me through my early days of web design and development, when I just wasn't interested in learning code, and I got some pretty good, basic interactive web sites publsihed. The previous version, 6, was pretty good, but had some toolbar display glitches and very lame CSS (cascading style sheet) support. And as a loyal Adobe customer (I mean sucker) I forked out the one-seventy for the Upgrade version of CS, mostly to fix those display glitches and to be able to use CSS as I have now been doing in other sites for a while using Dreamweaver MX. Well, after installing GoLive CS I am extremely disappointed with this release, it's a total waste of money. Not only are there currently a miriad of other display glitches, code problems, freezes, crashes and bugs, which Adobe have yet to fix, but I also find their new CSS features to be extremely complex. Also despite what the marketing hype says, the Layout View does not allways display CSS styles as they will look in a web browser, which leads to even more frustration and confusion when trying to style a page. It's hit or miss and I've got better things to do than guess what it's going to look like.

    Another reviewer of the upgrade version points out that in this version GoLive has eliminated the dynamic content technology that was in verson 6, but which remains in competitive programs like Dreamweaver.

    If you're using GL6, at least wait for the bug-fixing 7.01, but check indendent product reviews first, such as MacWorld's Feb 04 review, and the Adobe GoLive user duscussions page (www.adobeforums.com) to see what other problems people are having before buying. If you are looking for a new web program, go with Macromedia's Dreamweaver instead. I'm a total convert, and their Contribute program is excellent software that your clients can use to update and maintain their own sites.

    Macworld Buying advice summary (of this CS version) says... But while the program offers many advanced features for bulding and managing web sites, it's lackluster support for current CSS techniques and its sometimes complex and overwhelming interface are serious drawbacks."

    Other Adobe CS apps like Illustrator and Photoshp are remarkable, refined products. GoLive CS is a dud, right out of the box.

    Amazon.com Review

    Just how hard is it to build your own Web site, anyway? Theprospect--whether you're contemplating a site for business or just for fun--canbe both intimidating and tempting at the same time, even for otherwiseaccomplished professional people.

    That's precisely the mindset that Macmillanhopes to satisfy with Web Page Construction Kit 6.0. Like similar WYSIWYG Webdesign packages in the same price range, this kit gives novice to moderatelyskilled users all the tools they'll need to create and manage a functional,attractive Web site without ever having to learn HTML. But the most strikingadvantage of Macmillan's Construction Kit is that it provides an easy upgradepath in case you're later inspired to take on more advanceddesign.

    Essentially, the kit consists of a "light" version of SoftPress'sFreeway 3 (Freeway 3 LE), a more heavy-hitting (and much more expensive) Webdesign program that compares to Adobe's GoLive 5.0 and Macromedia's Dreamweaver4.0. Like the full version of Freeway, Freeway LE provides a robust,user-friendly interface that should be very familiar to anyone who's ever donedesktop publishing--especially in Quark Xpress 4.1, which even sharesmany keyboard shortcuts with Freeway. And the similarities go beyond appearance,with features such as strong typographic control and master pages for elementslike navigation bars and headers that stay consistent throughout a site (whichcan be an enormous time saver).

    This similarity should give graphic designersa leg up in learning Freeway, but even nondesigners shouldn't find the curve toosteep. And here's the best part: should you later decide to upgrade to thefull version of Freeway (which allows you to use cascading style sheets andimport Photoshop files, among other things), SoftPress will give you as much ashalf off if you already own Freeway LE.

    While Freeway LE is clearly the heartof this bundle, you'll find a few other things, too, if you give the box a goodshake. Web Page Construction Kit 6.0 comes with hundreds of professionallydesigned backgrounds, 5,000 photos, graphics, and animations, a textbook-stylemanual that includes design tips and techniques, and--seemingly tucked in as anafterthought--a nearly 500-page e-book, Creative HTML Design, a$40-value manual by well-respected Web gurus Lynda and William Weinman.--Paul Hughes ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for dynamic, fresh web design on multiple platforms
    I have tried both Macromedia Dreamweaver and Adobe Golive and until Golive CS, I considered Dreamweaver to be superior. Now after using the latest versions of each product, I would have to favor Golive CS. It is quite simply every bit as powerful as dreaweaver and in some cases, far more powerful ( ie: the built in development capability for mobile device platforms ) I never would have given a Smart Phone compatible site a second thought - until Golive CS ( it just seems so easy now ). As an HTML coder, I am surprised to see that Golive codes pretty well. Very clean. However, I feel that Dreamweaver at least matches it in this regard and perhaps is even a cleaner coder as far as table generation goes when using the layers ( Dreamweaver's version of Golive's grid ). Other than in this one area, however, they both appear to code equally cleanly. It is the Smart Objects in Golive and particularly the integration with Photoshop that sold me. Sure, Dreamweaver will allow the addition of much of the same content, but certainly not as fast and it seems a little bit easier to place the content right where you need it to be with Golive. All in all, Golive and Dreamweaver run neck and neck, but the mobile features, Smart Objects and integration with superior graphics software seals the deal for me. The ability to change between a photoshop style interface and standard interface is a huge improvement as well.

    1-0 out of 5 stars WHOA! They forgot something
    I've been using GoLive since it was called Cyberstudio and owned by another company. I therefore rushed to buy this update and was utterly shocked when I got home.

    GoLiveCS does not have the built in support for dynamic content that was in the previous version (6.0). The PHP/Mysql/asp interface for creating database driven websites is totally gone! Apparently Adobe thought no one was using it so they axed it. Let me tell you, as one of the ones who was using it, this has rendered this "upgrade" into a "downgrade" that I would never have bought had I known. Unfortunately, neither the store I bought it at nor Adobe will refund my money.

    I've gone back to 6.0. I'm hoping a third-party vendor creates a PHP/MYSQL plug-in that I can use, or I might just have to switch to dreamweaver. You can also check the Adobe forums on their website for more details about the "loss" in this upgrade. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    The complexity of building contemporary Web sites demands tools that are up to the task. Adobe's GoLive, now up to version 4.0.1, is an easy yet robust tool for designing and editing a modernsite with all appreciated additions.

    As one would expect from Adobe,the documentation is clear and concise, and the interface adheres tothe Macintosh standards that we all know. However, plenty of toolpalettes and information windows make working on a one-monitor systemwith a screen resolution of 1024 by 768 or less seem cramped. A higherresolution screen or a dual-monitor system makes life easier.

    GoLivehas some outstanding features, though, that set it apart from similartools. For those using Dynamic HTML for animation, the timeline windowand keyframe features are outstanding. Both position and stacking orderof floating objects can be animated, and a floating object can begraphics or text. The record feature records motion on the fly,creating keyframes as needed, until the mouse button is released. Thisworks well for creating complex animation, and saves the trouble ofcreating keyframes manually.

    The grid and rulers features are handywhen laying out artwork, and the color palette uses eight differentpalette types for color selection.

    In addition to DHTML, GoLive fullysupports Java, JavaScript, XML, cascading style sheets, and ActiveServer Pages. Adding features like mouseovers and menu navigationsystems takes little effort.

    An integrated QuickTime editor is usedfor importing QuickTime movies and adding special effects, audiotracks, HREF links, text, and sprite tracks. Many of these are powerfulQuickTime features that aren't exploited enough, and just the kind ofthing that are perfect for the Web. It's nice to see them integratedinto a Web design tool.

    Adobe has designed almost everything inGoLive to use a drag-and-drop method, and once the learning curve isclimbed (not a steep hill), the Web designer is free to focus on thereally hard part--good design. Although there are numerous templatesand frame sets to start off with, good design is still the hardest partof creation. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

    Up to version 3, only macintosh users could appreciate how great this software is. With version 4, GoLive is now a cross platform application. It is the best in the market. I have tried them all, including it's biggest rival, Dreamweaver. The latter would have been the best if golive wasn't there. Designing your page for any platform is true WYSIWYG. CSS creation is a snap, and animation with DHTML is so easy, you won't know why you didn't use golive before. There is even a QuickTime editor built into it.

    Here's a little no-nonsense advice for those of you who are consideringDreamweaver 4 as your future Webeditor: don't skimp; buy this bundle. The seamless integration of Dreamweaver 4with the nicely upgraded graphics application Fireworks 4 justifies theinvestment in this complete suite.

    Macromedia's Dreamweaver 4 packs layer upon layer of powerful features, for justabout any Web developer's needs and preferences. Perfect for individuals andprofessional Web-development teams alike, this latest version offers a fresh setof upgrades and improvements. Programmers who build sites by using only a basictext editor are rewarded with features for source-code inspection. Code View'stext-editing environment offers such customizable features as live syntaxcoloring, tag balancing, and auto indenting. Noncoding types can click and dragsites together by using one of the finer visual editors available. Within thoselayers of features, there are resources for creating forms, Flash files, frames,cascading style sheets, Java and ActiveX files, and more. In Split View, theCode and Design views display simultaneously--providing the best of both worldsfor ambidextrous types.

    The quickest and easiest way to design graphics in the Dreamweaver world is viaFireworks 4. Fireworks' strengths lie in its focus on the creation andoptimization of bitmapped and vector Web graphics. The files are integrated intoMacromedia Flash and Dreamweaver easily, and importing/exporting Adobe Photoshopand Illustrator files is a breeze; especially with the program's improved layermask handling, and a new Color Fill Live effect. Version 4 rolls out a newinterface that Flash, Dreamweaver, and FreeHand users will recognize. Thisstandardized format also offers tabbed menus for easy customization, and helpskeep the screen tidy. New tools for adding interactive elements--rollovers,navigation bars, and pop-up menus--are a welcome sight. And a Live Animationfeature creates frame-based GIF animations, using symbols, instances, andtweening features that are familiar to Flash users. With built-in HTML andJavaScript capabilities, version 4 delivers the goods to the Web graphics designcommunity.

    Convinced? If not, you can always buy Dreamweaver 4 at full retail, and thenfollow-up with a Fireworks 4 purchase, weeks or months later. Just don't blameus for the lingering red mark from your forehead slap. --Eric Twelker--Thisreview refers to the Windowsversion. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply THE best web dev combination
    DreamWeaver Rocks. Fireworks Rocks. Together they make for a spectacular web design/development combination.

    Dreamweaver is packed with features for the beginner through advanced web developer; it's easy and intuitive to use. It may take you a while to learn all the capabilities, but with each successive feature you discover and master, the development process becomes easier and faster.

    Fireworks is the best in class web graphics software. It integrates very well with DreamWeaver. Creating animated GIFs is a snap, as is image optimization (file compression), image map creation, and exploring full tables (HTML and all!) for use in DreamWeaver.

    You simply cannot go wrong with this package. Photoshop still has its place, but if you focus exclusively on the web and don't need to do exquisite image editing this bundle is all you need.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome
    I've been doing web development since 1996 and, to be honest, I fought tooth and nail against giving up Windows Notepad as my web development tool of choice. Microsoft FrontPage really ruined web development software for me and I pretty much vowed to avoid such applications in the future. Fortunately, my boss insisted that I use Dreamweaver and even sent me off to classes to learn the nuts and bolts. And now I'm hooked.

    Dreamweaver is simply awesome and I can't imagine ever going back. Whether your a novice or professional, you'll come to love Dreamweaver's simple interface and ability to tackle otherwise tedious tasks -- such as Cascading Style Sheets, tables, layers -- with ease. Adding Flash, Shockwave or Java is as simple as it can possibly be. I took classes on Dreamweaver, but only because my boss insisted. The software is pretty easy to learn, though those with web development experience will have a fuller understanding (and respect) for the capabilities of the product.

    The single most powerful part of Dreamweaver is the use of templates, which allow you to use the same look and feel across multiple pages and have all those pages updated when you make changes to the template. This alone will save you hours!

    Another great thing about Dreamweaver is that creates clean HTML. This is something that any developer who has ever had to edit the HTML directly will respect -- especially if you've ever tried to make sense of FrontPage HTML nonsense.

    Finally, the FTP application in Dreamweaver is outstanding. It keeps track of every page, graphic, link, etc. in your site and any change to any of them is cascaded through the entire site -- automatically updating links where necessary. With a simple click of a button your site is uploaded to your webserver.

    There are so many features I haven't covered, but with the little I have this product is worth the money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stupidly Discontinued!
    Get Macromedia Dreamweaver 4. They have turned this once great web design package into a hybrid cross of something that looks like Netscape/Flash and called it Dreamweaver MX 2004.

    I used Dreamweaver MX 2004 for a month, uninstalled it and went back to Dreamweaver 4. It really is that terrible and the work space is terribly cluttered making it very hard to work within.

    Bottom Line -- Get Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 instead if you can find it. Macromedia Dreamweaver 4 is a very good web design package that knocks Dreamweaver MX 2004 for ten. You will simply hate Dreamweaver MX 2004 when you install it on your system. I nearly barfed after a month of using that *new* completely hostile and non-user friendly piece of unstable and slow excuse for a web design software program.

    Get this instead ... if you can find it...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Review for Dreamweaver 5
    -This review is for Dreamweaver 5- I absolutely love this software. I had Adobe Go Live but I never seemed to take to it like I did with Dreamweaver. Once it was installed within a day, I had made several webpages. As I continued to use it I learned more and more intuitively without needing much guidance from the manual. As a user you can create your webpages visually or in code mode, this makes it a great option for anyone no matter what your skill - it can be adjusted to suit your needs. You can learn and develop your webpage skills as much or as little as you like. You do not need to be intimidated by it's high price. You can learn it and the cost is well worth the output. ...
    I don't have to look for anything else, I have hit paydirt with this program! If you are using Front Page or any other visual interface for ease, you know that you are trapped into a forced format, get this program and you will understand the freedom of control without fear!

    Amazon.com Review

    Dreamweaver UltraDev is an enhanced version of Macromedia'sleading Web-authoring tool. The standout additional feature is dynamiccontent, which is when pages have live links to databases or othertypes of server-side scripting. Most products of this type requireextensive manual coding, but UltraDev has an extensive library ofbuilt-in scripts, called Server Behaviors, that allow even moderatelysophisticated sites to be built with little or no code. Version 4 lookssimilar to its predecessor, but includes important changes that make itmore complete and easier to use.

    One of the best new features is the split code and design view, whichlets you edit either the code or the visual design and see changesinstantly echoed between them. There is also built-in security, so youcan create login procedures and password-protected sites. Finally, theLive Objects wizards automatically create page elements to handlecommon tasks, such as a master/detail page set, or forms to insert andupdate records.

    UltraDev supports three kinds of server-side scripting: Active ServerPages, JavaServer Pages, and Cold Fusion. Unfortunately, it does notsupport PHP, which is popular on Linux and Unix servers, althoughbecause UltraDev is extensible, there may be some third-party add-ins.The features for the three models are similar but not identical,although in every case there is excellent database support. Its greatstrength is that you can focus on designing your pages and let UltraDevhandle the data access code. You can even display live data at designtime, making it easier to get exactly the right appearance.

    Everything in Dreamweaver is also in UltraDev, so this is the idealpackage for Web authors who need to add dynamic content with a minimumof fuss.

    About Fireworks 4:

    Fireworks is a dedicated Web graphics application. You can create bothvector and bit-map images, optimize them for Web pages, and addnumerous special effects for export direct to HTML.

    The starting point is a familiar range of drawing and painting tools,such as shapes, lines, brushes, pens, and selection tools. In thedefault vector mode they create editable, scalable objects, and inbit-map mode they paint pixels. Fireworks supports layers andmasks--virtual overlaid surfaces that you can edit independently, enablingdesigners to achieve a wide range of effects. For example, you can varyopacity and blending to fine-tune the final appearance. Other Fireworkspanels include color, stroke, fill, and effects. There is also alibrary panel where you can store graphic elements for reuse.

    A key feature for Web designers is optimization. Fireworks offersmaximum control over the critical tradeoff between quality and size. Atwo-up and four-up view lets you compare the quality of original andoptimized versions, using techniques such as reducing color depth andremoving unused colors. The software offers strong support for GIF,JPEG, and PNG image formats. Fireworks also lets you create animationthat is exported as an animated GIF. It will also generate JavaScriptto produce image rollovers and, in this new version, pop-up menus.There is great support for hotspots and slices, techniques for mappingor dividing an image to support HTML features. Integration withMacromedia's Dreamweaver 4 is better than ever in version 4 ofFireworks. Dreamweaver UltraDev 4/Fireworks Studio combines the twoproducts at a lower price. You can export to Dreamweaver--or launchFireworks directly from Dreamweaver--edit an image, and save it backwith all Fireworks-specific information preserved. --TimAnderson ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Macromedia's Dreamweaver MX is a topflight Web editor for dynamic sitesas well as static pages. Dreamweaver's excellent visual tools generate code thatworks across all the leading Web browsers, winning it the respect ofprofessionals. Its availability on the Mac as well as Windows is another strongfeature for designers. The product is also extensible, with a huge range ofthird-party add-ons available from Macromedia's Web site, many of them free ofcharge. There is great support for Internet standards, including cascading stylesheets, XHTML, and accessibility features. Built-in validating mechanisms makeit easy to check a page, and everything is highly configurable so you canspecify the standards you want to support.

    This is a visual editor, which means you can create and edit a Web page byselecting items such as tables, forms, and images from a tabbed palette. TheProperties panel lets you specify details such as borders, styles, andhyperlinks, and you can also use the visual editor for frames and layers. Manydesigners also like to edit the underlying HTML, and this is where DreamweaverMX comes into its own. It supports either a pure code view or a split view thatlets you click seamlessly between the code and visual editors. A lot of thefeatures previously found in HomeSite, Macromedia's text-based Web editor, arenow integrated into Dreamweaver, including pop-up code hints, a snippets panelthat lets you keep handy pieces of code for reuse, and a tag chooser that letsyou grab the right tag from a list. An O'Reilly tag reference is built in.

    Dreamweaver's template support deserves special mention. Templates give you aquick start with a number of predesigned pages. In Dreamweaver MX, they can alsobe used to lock down areas of the page, so that contributors can create and edita story without disturbing the design. Templates can be nested so that changesto an underlying template ripple through the pages that use it for powerfulsite-wide updates.

    Macromedia used to market a product called Dreamweaver UltraDev, which allowedfor rapid development of Web applications featuring online databases, memberlogin, and other server-side elements. In Dreamweaver MX, this capability isbuilt in. It has also been extended, adding support for ASP.NET and PHP as wellas ColdFusion, JavaServer pages, and traditional ASP. Nonspecialists will findthemselves able to build rich dynamic pages, while the integrated code editormakes this a capable development product as well. In fact, Dreamweaver MX hasalso replaced ColdFusion Studio as the primary development tool for ColdFusionMX. It is a uniquely flexible package.

    Overall, it's hard to find fault with Dreamweaver MX. It's true that itscomplexity and professional features make it harder to pick up than some rivalproducts. The abundance of panels and options can be confusing, and ahigh-resolution screen is required. In addition, the Studio MX products, whichinclude Dreamweaver, are a better value for those who need more than one of theMX series. However, this takes nothing away from the excellence of Dreamweaveras the first-choice tool for professionals. --Tim Anderson ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Slower and buggier than previous versions, if more powerful.
    On the good side, we finally have OS X versions of these mainstay web design apps (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash); on the bad side, they are so buggy that one wonders if OS 9 was really that bad at all. Overall, Dreamweaver on my G4/733 feels MUCH slower than 4.01 did on a G3/333.

    For example, the behavior of dragging the panels on the right side is very inconsistant. E.g., when attempting to resize the CSS panel to be longer to show more styles in my file, the cursor often does not turn into the double-headed arrow to indicate dragability; or the cursor disappears completely; dragging sometimes works, but more often doesn't. Or, when in code view, dragging across text to select results in a nasty redraw problem, with the code flashing on and off in rapid succession until you've stopped dragging. It's like the document is having an epilectic seizure. And why haven't they put in a simple window split function? BBEdit has had this for years. They boast about how bit-chin' their HTML code view is, but jeeze, it leaves a lot to be desired (and no, I don't think switching to BBEdit should be a solution to that; I think Macromedia should do more than a half-baked job on the code editor, and then most of us wouln't need to bother with BBEdit). Or, in the Style Sheet edit window, styles are unordered, making it very hard to find a particular style.

    And basic functions like launching the app, quitting, opening a file, opening the Site view, saving as, and so forth, are S - L - O - W. It's just a drag to use this software. We should be damanding far more from our application creators like Macromedia.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WYSIWYG is what the Mac is famous for.
    Dreamweaver has been my choice for web editing since I figured out what I was doing. I started with Adobe PageMill, so the logical step should have been GoLive. But, I had a choice and Dreamweaver won out.

    Combining the functionality of Dreamweaver, and the dynamic engine of UltraDev, MX completes this program's journey to what the web should be. Roundtrip editing for Flash MX and Fireworks MX as well, make these programs a designer's dream suite.

    Macromedia has made me a fan for life with the latest updates. Fully compatible with both OS X and OS 9. (This review is based on the pre-release download version.) ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars I like the programs, but I think it needs improvement.
    I bought this package based on a friend's recommendation. Looking back I wish I had saved the money and just bought Dreamweaver. I think they are both great programs, but from my experience you need only need one. If you own Illustrator or Photoshop you can build your graphics there and import them into Dreamweaver. If you don't just buy Fireworks, you can build an entire site and all your graphics in this program.

    I am a novice at web design, and I wanted to jump right in with setting up a site. I found both of the instructional guides a bit frustrating and overwhelming. I was surprize to find that I even though I had bought the Mac version, the instruction books were cross-platform for both PC and Mac, favoring the PC platform. (A HUGE turn-off for a Mac person like me.)

    After doing the tutorials I tried to build my site by using both programs. I am mainly a print designer and was thinking that Dreamweaver and Fireworks like I use QuarkXPress and Illustrator, but it doesn't work that way.

    Like I said before you only need one. I think they are both great programs, but I don't see the need to have both, which is why I gave it a four.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great program, documentation could be better
    A complete novice in web design, I just spent 4 days developing an 8 page web site with Dreamweaver, which I had never used before. The web site's great, and I love the program. An excellent tutorial guides you through the basic steps, and Macromedia provides a 400+page downloadable reference manual. A bit bulky, and difficult to find what I needed, but the program itself is pretty intuitive, once you've worked through the tutorial. I still haven't figured out how to upload my HTML files using Dreamweaver (as far as I can tell, you're supposed to be able to), which is why I rate this only a 4; otherwise, from uploading graphics and text to layout and links, a user friendly program that will have you on the www in no time at all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dreamweaver is a dream come true!
    Dreamweaver is well beyond its opponets in web-design, and anybody who designs web pages should have this program! Packing every single tool you would need or ever want to make your website the way you want it, Dreamweaver is easy from the start. Although I'm not an actual owner of Dreamweaver, I have friends who own this product, and every one of them has been blown away bit it, including me. This program is easy to use, and for those who are still using old programs like "Visual Page", I suggest that you upgrade to this program, which you will never regret. Many people still stick with the old fashioned way of making mouse-overs, but Dreamweaver makes it easy, and this can be done in under a minute, without having to spend hours on Java coding. I personally like this program much more then Adobe "GoLive", which are the two leading web-design programs. Make your choice, but I think Dreamweaver is the true program that will make every website look incredible. It's worth the price tag, every cent! The day will come soon when I hope to have the priviledge of owning this program myself. ... Read more

Packed with new features, AdobeGoLive 5.0 offers enhanced source-code control to help Web teams edit andmaintain large sites; improved linking of Photoshop, Illustrator, and LiveMotionfiles; and a new interface that's designed to increase efficiency.

    For designers who like to get under the hood, GoLive 5.0 now featuressimultaneous viewing of HTML source code and a WYSIWYG view of the page itself.Each window is editable, and changes take place immediately in both windows.GoLive also can import native Photoshop, Illustrator, and LiveMotion documents.When you double-click on an element in GoLive, the document is opened in theapplication that created it. After changes are made in the native applicationand the document is saved, the file is automatically updated in GoLive.

    Two welcome new features are the History palette for going back in time andundoing a set of actions, and the Alignment palette for accurately lining up anddistributing rows and columns of elements.

    If GoLive has a drawback, it's the number of palettes that sprawl across thescreen; a high-resolution monitor or dual-monitor setup goes a long way towardalleviating the crowd factor. Compatibility with Photoshop 6 and Illustrator 9is problematic, but presumably a patch or some new version of GoLive (version5.1?) is imminent; they are, after all, part of the same Adobe family.

    Clearly, Adobe's GoLive 5.0 has some stiff competition (namely, Macromedia'sDreamweaver), but GoLive also has some virtues of its own. If you're alreadycomfortable with other Adobe applications, GoLive's learning curve shouldpresent only a small hurdle. The application is stable and deep, and has enoughfeatures to help any site designer build almost any kind of site. --MikeCaputo ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Yet another quality Adobe product
    Adobe GoLive is one of the most used applications I own. GoLive's easy table creation, site management, global search & replace, and familiar Adobe interface add up to one outstanding program. Not to mention that GoLive is the only commerically widespread web authoring environment that supports easy SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) integration.

    I was a bit frustrated that some of the quirks existant since 4.0 are still there, but the added features make the upgrade worthwhile. ... Read more
