Adobe Launches CS5 Product Family
Adobe Systems Incorporated’s Adobe Creative Suite 5 (CS5) adds powerful new tools and workflow
enhancements to the flagship creative tools, aiding designers across the multi-channel campaign. New features
include Photoshop’s Puppet Warp, which lets users reposition, bend, or warp image elements to generate
another perspective; and Refine Edge precisely detects and masks challenging types of edges, such as hair
and foliage. Illustrator features new stroke, paint, and perspective capabilities with the addition of stroke width
control at any point on a path, a Bristle Brush, and dynamic perspective tools.
Enhancements to InDesign as well as the brand new Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5 professional interaction design
tool address the growing need for tools that allow creative professionals to deliver content for digital devices,
tablets, and the Web without writing code. CS5 products include access to Omniture technologies, to capture,
store, and analyze information generated by Web sites and other sources.
(Scheduled ship is May 12, 2010) CS5 is available in standalone software applications and collections. Street
price is expected to be $2,599 for Master Collection CS5, $1,899 for Design Premium, $1,799 for Web Premium,
$1,699 for Production Premium, and $1,299 for Design Standard. Upgrade pricing and volume licensing are
