Adobe’s Creative Suite 3 Web Premium has been built with the interactive Internet media in mind and has taken AJAX-based sites and Flash games to heights formerly un-soared. With new versions of certain software thrown into a single package, the CS3 Web Premium makes possible complex tasks (images and page layouts) to be completed within no time and that is from the scratch. The integration comprises Flash, Fireworks, Photoshop, Illustrator and Dream Weaver besides a few other tools.
The Adobe CS3 Web Premium edition runs both on Windows (XP and Vista) and Mac (Intel/PowerPC) running OSX.
The CS3 Web Premium must earn a few accolades for easing up the task of file transferring; Photoshop files can now be pasted directly into Dreamweaver and that too after putting into use any specific optimization setting of the image layers. Each of the layers can then be opened separately with Dream Weaver, the same way the integrated Flash displays the layer hierarchies. This allows for maintaining every path and anchor point for using later as the key frames. Fireworks maintain the layer effects while allowing editing jobs on the imported psd-s. And all that requires a simple drag-and-drop.
There have been instances when browser compatibility has become a major issue but now, with a checker that’s built-in, possible problems cannot help but get automatically highlighted. All these make Adobe Creative Suite 3 Web Premium an optimized package for an outstanding performance in the web design and development arena, guaranteed to bring forth a more productive workflow while ensuring a web-page/site a consistent and uncompromising look and feel. And with Photoshop Extended, the CS3 Web Premium seems to be reaching out to other industries outside the design circuit – especially the medical industry, engineering and the 3D domain. Courtesy - the counting tool (for extracting image based quantitative and qualitative data); specialized image formats and the software’s ability for image-mapping 2D-s onto 3D objects. And all that requires one click to the respective buttons, pre-assigned into the software.
Designers and developers have been found thrilled after witnessing the advanced integration offered by the Adobe CS3 Web Premium edition software package; this complete set of essential web, interactive design and development tools can be called comprehensive at worst. But while the new tools are enough to allure just anybody (even those whose idea about digital images are just x-rated pics), the price poses a major bar and might make people think for at least a few times whether the upgrade/investment shall be a worthwhile one, even though it’s in common knowledge that getting a work done shall never be as easy as now with the Adobe’s Creative Suite 3 Web Premium software package.
