Adobe Launches CS5

Adobe today announced the launch of the latest version of its flagship Creative Suite family of products, CS5. It comprises, among other things, new versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Acrobat, Fireworks, Flash and Dreamweaver.

The latest versions of the software have 64-bit support and some neat new productivity-boosting features. In particular, the new content-aware fill available in Photoshop CS5 looks very impressive. Check out this video showing it in action:

The Creative Suite of tools is an impressive collection of professional-grade software, but that quality does come at a price. The top-of-the-range Master Collection, which includes all of the tools in the CS5 family, retails at a hefty $2,599, while the cheapest edition, Design Standard, which includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat, costs $1,299. Tiered upgrade pricing from previous versions of the software is available.
