Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium is said to be the ultimate tool-kit for expressing and publishing ideas in print, on the web, as interactive content and on mobile devices. It will give designers the power to create a range of interactive and digital content without writing code.
The Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5 enables those familiar with Photoshop and Illustrator to quickly transform their artwork into interactive user experiences. Digital documents, publications and presentations can be enhanced with new features in Adobe InDesign CS5 that allows users to design with interactivity, motion, sound and video to connect people to content in compelling new ways. Refine Edge selection technology in Photoshop CS5 makes complex image selections possible by precisely detecting and masking the trickiest types of edges, such as hair and foliage, while eliminating background color contamination.
“With content going mobile, and a publishing market poised for a new generation of devices, publishers, designers are relying on Adobe to also now deliver the functionality and precision to develop amazing work for display across virtually any medium,” said John Loiacono, senior vice president and general manager for Creative Solutions at Adobe.
The company intends to couple online business analytics with creative tools to ensure that publishers, designers and marketers can create, deliver and optimise high-impact digital experiences across media and devices. “While Creative Suite 5 continues Adobe’s storied history of delivering astonishing new creative features, this release addresses the challenges facing publishers and creatives worldwide — how to build profitable businesses around digital content,” said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief executive officer at Adobe.
“Creative economies have been identified by the World Bank as contributing nearly 7% of a nation’s GDP. With the launch of CS5, Adobe aims to provide the tools and innovative work-flows needed to heighten the creative experience, streamline processes and help India build successful businesses in this very important sector,” said Sandeep Mehrotra, country head – sales for India. According to Mehrotra, India is home to a vibrant creative culture with the largest film industry in the world, one of the most awarded advertising industries and an ever-growing population of animation, design, music, architecture, gaming, publishing and outsourcing industries.
Sandeep Mehrotra also said that there will be a series of roadshows in May o celebrate the launch of CS5 in India, which will be attended by around 3000 creative professionals, across print, web, mobile, interactive, film and video production industries.
