Adobe Creative Suite 5 unveiled

Adobe has announced the launch of Creative Suite 5 (CS5), the latest version of its graphics, video and web development package.

CS5 brings with it a number of upgrades to Adobe’s flagship creativity products, and features integration with online content and digital marketing tools.

The package comes with access to Omniture technologies, which are designed to capture and analyse website data.

Shantanu Narayen, President and CEO at Adobe, commented: “By coupling sophisticated online business analytics with dazzling creative tools, we’re ensuring that publishers, designers and marketers can create, deliver and optimize beautiful, high-impact digital experiences across media and devices.”

The Master Collection version of CS5 will contain Photoshop CS5, Illustrator CS5, InDesign CS5, Flash Catalyst CS5, Flash Professional CS5, Dreamweaver CS5, Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and After Effects CS5.

There will be five Creative Suite editions in total, offering assorted combinations of products.

Apparently over 250 new features are present in the Master Collection. For example, Photoshop CS5 benefits from new “content aware” fill technology, which uses clever blending techniques to keep the background looking realistic.

So if there’s a leaf you want to remove from the grass in a photo, it’s just a matter of dabbing over it, and the program will produce an intelligent fill to blend in with the existing grass.

It looks like it works astoundingly well from demo footage, and will likely be a massive time-saver in itself.

New stroke options in Illustrator CS5 mean that users can create strokes of variable widths, with the exact width adjustable at any point along the stroke. InDesign CS5 boasts new interactive documents and enhanced e-reader device support.

All these goodies won’t come cheap, however, as you may have guessed. The Master Collection will tip the scales at approximately £2,300. Wallet curling, indeed.

The cheapest option will be Creative Suite 5 Design Standard, which will be around the £1,000 mark.

The various Creative Suite 5 packages should be out around the middle of May. Amazon currently has the release date marked as May 7th.
