Adobe has just announced the launch of Creative Suite 5, bringing with it a wealth of updated tools for many designer’s software package of choice. Click here for a run-down of what’s new.
There are over 250 new updates to Adobe Photoshop alone. As well as making the jump to 64-bit for Mac users, there will now also be tools for making it simpler to quickly detect an image’s border when cutting or applying effects to it, as well as a Corel Paint like colour-mixing tool.
As well as updated versions of Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash in the Web Premium version of the package, there is also a brand new program called Flash Catalyst. This is designed to simplify the process for designers looking to jump from print to interactive design. Flash itself will also have the ability to convert Flash animations into HTML5 Canvas code.
There will also be a Packager for iPhone application in Creative Suite 5, but given the iPhone’s new OS 4 and Apple’s decision to ban the conversion of non-native apps from the App Store, it may prove less useful than once imagined.
Look to see Creative Suite 5 hitting shelves and digital downloads within a month’s time.
