Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Mac (Student & Teacher Edition)
Item #: S-020050
Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Mac (Student & Teacher Edition) provides a full set of professional tools for graphic design, website & application development, page layout, and image editing - and for publishing creative content to mobile devices, the web, print, and tablets. The Design & Web Premium suite comprises several industry-standard software programs that are essential to print designers and digital publishing professionals: Photoshop CS6, InDesign CS6, Illustrator CS6, Flash Professional CS6, Fireworks CS6, Dreamweaver CS6, and Acrobat X Pro.
The CS6 versions of Photoshop and Illustrator enjoy speed and performance enhancements. The Mercury Graphics Engine of Photoshop and the Mercury Performance System of Illustrator enable your 64-bit computer to address full system RAM in order to speed imaging and processing tasks and that once slowed down your workflow. With that extra processing power, you can enjoy the expanded capabilities of all the programs. Photoshop CS6, for instance, offers a Contact-Aware Patch that allows you to choose a sample area that serves as the basis for a patch. Illustrator enables you to convert raster images into editable, scalable vectors - the program's bread and butter.
As the definition of "publishing" expands, so too do the functions of Adobe InDesign. Even before the CS6 version, the program had already embraced publishing interactive page layouts to iPads and other tablets, e-book readers, and other digital devices. You can create several different layouts to serve different display dimensions, and save them all within a single file. Liquid Layout automatically resizes your layout based on page size.
For website and application creation, Dreamweaver CS6 lets you design, develop, and maintain multimedia HTML5/CSS3 websites and applications. You can also build native mobile apps for Android and iOS using integrated mobile frameworks. Flash Professional CS6 supports updated Flash Player and Adobe AIR runtimes, and you can also export content authored in Flash Professional to HTML. Fireworks features a new CSS Properties panel to let you cleanly extract CSS elements and values.
Creative Suite 6 Design Standard serves the design and publishing professional whose demands grow as quickly as technology advances. Photoshop CS6, for instance, now offers basic video editing functions with transitions and effects. As the required tasks of your profession creep over from other professional realms, Adobe continues to refine the interface and workflow of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Your job might not be getting any simpler, but Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design Standard helps you keep pace with expanded functions, improved performance, and streamlined workflow.
