3.0 out of 5 stars CS4 smooths out a lot of the rough edges of CS3 January 30, 2009
Platform for Display:Mac Disc
Lots of great updates in this release.

Bridge has gone from a product I never even opened in CS3 to a program I use even more than the Finder is CS4 (when searching Adobe files.) I have two major gripes still. Bridge's smart collections are painfully slow where smart folders in the finder are very fast. Also Bridge is unable to detect Photoshop files that are located in the iPhoto library. Bridge can find other formats from with in iPhoto library just not Photoshop. Unfortunately that is the format I primarily use.

Flash currently crashes for me whenever I make a symbol so I haven't been able to use it much at all. That being said that are making great steps to simplifying the interface. Action Script is still unnecessarily complicated.

Illustrator has multiple artboards like FreeHand did except it works a lot better. You can now also bring in most FreeHand files fully intact since both software contains pages now. The blob brush is great. As a long time FreeHand fan I like on they seem to be making Illustrator functions easier like FreeHand but with more powerful features.

I see two problems with Illustrator. One is that they put the rotating canvas feature in PhotoShop but left it out of where it was really needed which is in Illustrator. The other is that I find it much harder to do a simple eye dropper sample in Illustrator than FreeHand especially when applying a color's stroke to another objects fill or a fill to another objects stroke.

Fireworks is an ok upgrade but didn't build on pages feature from CS3 like was badly needed. Fireworks needs to work more like InDesign for the web but it's layout features are stuck in the 80s. No multiple master pages, no basing one one page on top of another.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware January 9, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Disc
Please beware, there is no longer any customer support for this product. After updating my Mac I could no longer use this program. You have to remove the program before you update or you cannot use it after you update. I was not aware of this and after waiting hours on line for help was told to go to their forum, where there were many customers who had the same problem that had no solution. I would give this product no stars if that was possible

1.0 out of 5 stars why the high price? February 26, 2013
By Sherry
Platform for Display:Mac Disc
I'm confused. You are charging $750 for a student version of the outdated CS4. I paid $350 for the student versio when it came out 3 or 4 years ago. Am I missing something?
