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.

Adobe has taken a dual bold (and brilliant) step: they've bundled all their key applications into a single suite (very appropriately baptized the Creative Suite -CS) and they've opened up a very straightforward upgrade path that leverages on their established Photoshop user base: essentially, you can upgrade for a very affordable price to the entire suite, if you have ANY full version of Adobe (no matter how old!)
As for improvements, the best component to be included in this suite is called Version Cue, and is nothing short of a a basic version of an asset management/check-in/check-out component which allows multiple users of the same assets to not step on each other's toes by blocking write access to an asset currently being used by another user. Something that's been around for ages in the software arena, but to which the design world is becoming used to lately.
In terms of specific apps, Photoshop CS (forget the numbers from this point on, think "CS") comes back with an improved File Browser, with very nice features such as the ability for users to add keywords to the files, PhotoMerge (which will allow you to seamlessly put together two or more pictures that were shot "side by side" as in a landscape picture of a city, for instance), and a number of great features that will make the application friendlier to photographers. Among the photographers' goodies comes embedded support for the Camera Raw file format (previously only available through a paid plug-in) and MatchColor to allow you to apply the color of one image to another. Those that scan multiple prints at once are up for a great surprise: the Cop and Straighten feature which does just that...

Before purchasing this package, I read several of the reviews and was scared silly by the warnings. Fortunately, I didn't have any problems loading it and haven't experienced problems using any of the programs. I should add that I am on a Windows XP platform.

The Creative Suite has incorporated several changes in all of the programs, but they remain familiar enough to get through them if you've used the previous versions. The video tour is great even if all of the possibilities seem overwhelming at first. Photoshop is still the industry standard for image manipulation and the new version has some goodies that makes it indispensable. Coupled with new features for Illustrator and InDesign, the Creative Suite package is a great tool for those of us who work as graphic designers or photographers.

Finally, InDesign is very easy to use and offers more features than Quark. Although I love Quark, I wonder if this will be its doom? I hope not, but change is inevitable.

I have used Photoshop for years, but this suite version is buggy. Adobe's own user forums show hundreds of users unable to install the product (at least in Windows). The solutions offered are difficult and time-consuming. Because of the expense, many people will be very disappointed--you can but a computer for this price.

**Beware** this version is old and no longer supported by Adobe. You have to download it, register it and then navigate through Adobe's download page to "upgrade" to a newer version with a dummy serial number. So if your using this software for design business, beware, this is not legit. Its okay if your just using it for personal use, which I am. But I wasn't happy to have to spend HOURS dealing with Adobe's help chat and forums to figure out how to get this to run. Not to mention it was previously registered, which creates issues also. Adobe had to transfer registration to me. Was a huge pain, but in the end, it should work.
