Users of Adobe Creative Suite, which range from professionals designers to amateur photographers, have been desperately waiting for the launch of the software’s next release. Now, the company has finally launched Creative Suite 6 as well as Creative Cloud. This release comes at the heels of a beta launch of CS6 which was being offered for free for a month prior to this launch.
Creative Suite 6:
The bundle that Creative Suite is, comprises of 14 separate applications. And CS6 with a newer version of each of them. According to the senior Vice President of Digital Media Business at Adobe, David Wadhwani, ‘Creatives get a ton of innovation across CS6, with milestone releases of all our flagship products. With CS6 and Creative Cloud, we’re also introducing new products, new mobile workflows and advanced publishing capabilities that show we are laser-focused on ensuring design, Web and video pros have everything they need for the delivery of high-impact content and apps.’
The company is offering individual products from the Suite as well as the complete bundle itself. Different other bundle offers, bringing together products related to web, print and video design are also being offered by Adobe.
The Master Collection bundle package, which offers all the components of CS6, may seem pricey for many of us, being tagged at $2599. The more affordable options include a Design Standard collection, which comes with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat X Pro. It has a price tag of $1299. The Design & Web Premium Collection which includes Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, InDesign, DreamWeaver, Fireworks and Acrobat X Pro, comes at $1899.
Adobe has also finally launched Creative Cloud. The cloud will enable the company to integrate the desktop Adobe software experience with its cloud services and thus, port them across multiple devices with ease. Currently, the service seems quite affordable for such users who are already using Adobe CS3, CS4, CS5 or CS5.5 For such users, the service is being offered for $29.99.
However, for those now switching over to Adobe, Creative Cloud is being offered for either $49.99 per month on annual subscription or $74.99 on a month-wise basis.You can catch the updates regarding CS6 Launch at this official CS6 Launch page.
