Adobe announce CS6


#2
Looks pretty good. Photoshop, Illustrator (now 64-bit it seems) and Indesign look pretty good. Dont really use flash too much these days but at least they havent given up with it yet and included some support for html5. Never really used any of the dreamweaver features, mainly just use it as a code editor so cant really comment on anything new as such.

I like the look of the dark interface though, looks pretty cool. That on its own isnt worth the upgrade fee though!

I still use CS2! I have CS4 but only on one computer and we also have CS2 on PC! I haven't found the need to use CS4 permanently yet... can anyone tell me why I should upgrade?

No idea what CS2 does, CS3 was the first package I used - and I barely used much of that in my 1st year of college. What do you use in your CS2 suite? I always assume there's an improvement in tools, usability, updates etc in the new packages, even if it's only minimal.

As far as I know Indesign CS4 was more web orientated.. and it also offers Bevel etc. I don't go in that often for Bevel, Extrude etc so I couldn't see the point. I use Illy and Photoshop and have't found anything I can't cope with yet!

Not long after we purchased CS5 they brought out CS5.5 and now 6.0, as long as what you currently have works and does what you need, save your pennies and have a holiday instead!

As it's going the way Quark did - not being able to backsave, bring out lots of minor updates I'm sticking to what I've got! Perhaps as the weather is so awful I'll plan a holiday!

Guys,

I have just come back from Sydney and did you know that Harvey Norman now stocks EVERY single adobe title in store??!! This is both for PC & MAc.

I could not believe it but they do. Walked out after spending £2,500 on Adobe Master Collection! Apparently Tesco will be next to stock the complete range, which they say can guarantee will always be in stock.

I don't think it is an act of God, more so Supermarkets wanting a bigger share of the software market. I was really surprised because they are stocking every single Adobe title including the Student versions.

Has anyone actually ever bought a high end graphical design suite from a Supermarket before?

I believe everyone will now be a designer ha here comes the terrible artwork. best start charging now to fix these rouge designers work LOL

Lol! On a positive spin it will allow people who have not had access or even knew about such products. I spent about 45 minutes in store looking at all the products... there are over 72 (mac & PC)

And if they did, people who only have a slight interest in design but think it's an 'easy job' are not going to pay that. At least it'll be committed people buying it.

I hardly think Tescos are going to stock £2500 specialist design software.
I have just had it confirmed that Tesco will be stocking the complete range 100%. The first store to do so will be Boreham Wood. It appears they are revamping their stores so that the software and entertainment sections have a far greater choice. The areas are to be manned with staff to assist with shoppers (oo er!), however the fact that they are determined to compete with the PC World etc for retail software sales by re0inveting their entertainment sections.

Good point about the club card points, they certainly give me more motivation to check the price at Tesco of something before I buy it!
