Adobe Changes Everything

If you do not have a subscription to Macworld, be sure to check out the Adobe CS feature they have online. I am most impressed with the changes in Photoshop and Illustrator, as I don't use GoLive and only use InDesign a little. I will probably benefit most of in the new Photoshop is the text on a path, comp layers palette, and the new match color command (which is by no means new, just now much easier and brainless to accomplish). The new live histogram sounds interesting too. I know Unigraphics is going to like the changes in InDesign. Nested styles is something that is annoying not to be able to do in InDesign 2. The addition of a Story Editor a la PageMaker is a nice touch as well. The new 3D effect in Illustrator CS is a great addition. Once again Adobe has made a plugin worthless with an upgrade. Although this path is usually seen in Photoshop, now Illustrator gets the "lets add this plugin" effect. I am not saying this is necessarily a bad thing, but Adobe, like Apple, seem to step on developers toes a lot in the upgrades of their software. From what the Macworld article had to say about GoLive CS, I am not impressed. It does not sound like much of an upgrade at all. It surely does not sound like the jumps between, say, Dreamweaver 4 and MX, and MX and MX 2004. Something to notice is that the Adobe Creative Suite is Mac OS X only. Just like Quark with XPress 6, Adobe is pushing those last OS 9 users to the point of upgrading. And all I have to say about that is: It's about time!
