Adobe Creative Suite 3 Web Premium covers the spectrum of web development and digital interactive design. It includes new versions of Adobe Photoshop CS3, Adobe Illustrator CS3, and Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, as well as Adobe Dreamweaver CS3, Adobe Flash CS3 Professional, Adobe Fireworks CS3, and Adobe Contribute CS3 software.
Here we look at three key features in Adobe's CS3 web bundle:
1) Shape Primitives
Flash allows visual adjustment of shape properties – easily round rectangle corners, create pie wedges, or define an inner circle radius – from the stage using the new Shape Primitive tools.
2) Flash and Illustrator integration
Create Flash symbols with support for 9-slice scaling guides and dynamic text from within Illustrator. Import layers, objects, symbols and text into Flash, preserving the names and structure of Illustrator files.
3) Spry framework
We take a look at all the features in the long-awaited combined offering of Adobe and Macromedia design and web products in our Adobe Creative Suite 3 feature in the May edition of Macworld, on sale Thursday 29 March.
