We have some good news for fans of Adobe’s Creative Suite software, as the company has just announced a release date for the unveiling of the follow up – Adobe Creative Suite 5.

As reported from Apple Insider, Adobe will be unveiled on April 12th, with shipping expected to start a month later.

As usual, CS5 will combine the very best features in graphics, video and Web design for professionals, and Apple Insider also reveal that CS5 will contain a 64-bit version of Photoshop for Mac.

    What is K4

  • The upgrade pricing is absolutely despicable, and reflects nothing more than Adobe forcing those of us who buy our software legit to subsidize the lowlife pirates who steal and don't contribute to the software development cycle. Seriously, $799 to go from CS3 to CS5?

    In addition, their site is pathetically unusable. Try finding a current version of Adobe CS4 for sale, for example.

    Adobe, if you want Apple to drop its walled garden, how about if you drop the walls preventing legit designers from buying your products on the up and up. Shame on you.

    By the way, when I say unstable hardware, this is what I mean. For the most part it comes down to something like this: Good processor, good amount of ram, (integrated graphics chipset). Or, good graphics card, good processor, little ram. Or just simply not maintaining your computer by poor handling, or never defragging or running disk cleanups. All of these things can fall under "unstable hardware". Let me tell you another thing. If you don't think that actual unstable hardware exists then you haven't used a Dell that was build between 2005 and 2009. Please don't tell me that all hardware is created equal.

    When it comes to Adobe there are only two OS's to talk about. Windows and Leopard, they don't make it for anything else. To be quite frank, I have Snow Leopard on my Macbook pro, and I also have a PC with Windows 7. Now if they could get Windows 7 to run as smooth as Snow Leopard then Windows would blow away the competition. But I'm not here to talk about OS's. I've seen people crash Adobe's software simply because they didn't know what they were doing. They might try to export in Premiere with some crazy, unrealistic export settings, that no professional would actually use. Or in After Effects by trying to do things that conflict. This is why a person needs to know their hardware along with the software that they are using. By understanding these things one will never have to say, "Adobe sucks, I can't create anything and it's all their fault". OK, all I have to say is; "If they suck so much then why are you using them. Maybe you should be using Windows Movie Maker, and DVD Maker.

    Unstable Hardware – ROFL! But seriously, adobe's software do have bugs n they do crash (though not that often!) Ideally software is supposed to run stably w/e hardware u run it on. speed n smoothness of execution may vary but it should never crash.

    Btw – No one churns out as many innovative n user friendly features in design software like adobe does. I have huge respect for them.

    PS. If software crashes were due to "Unstable Hardware" (though I never heard of such a thing), then you should be talking about OS stability rather than Softs or the User.

    The Adobe products rely heavily on your systems hardware. If your hardware is unstable then you will have problems running the Adobe software. I have been an student of internal hardware in Mac's and PC's. If you don't have a long history of knowing your crap then you will never be able to survive in the world of Adobe, or Final Cut, or any high end piece of software. My suggestion is that you go back to school and learn all the stuff that you skipped before you decided to purchase an expensive piece of software such as Adobe CS5. Just some advice. I'm sure now you are going to tell me how powerful of system you have with infinite ram, 10 graphics cards, and a hard drive the size of Kentucky. Still, if you do not know what everything does, it does you no good.

    This fills me with no joy what-so-ever. CS4 is a buggy piece of cr&p that constantly crashes, with Flash being the worst offender. The new tools, such as the bone tool, don't work as they're supposed and are bugged to the point of being unusable.

    The CS series costs companies huge sums of money, only to inherit the bugs and poor usability of the previous version with unusable and unstable new features. Here's a message to Adobe, fix the versions already out there before burdening us with new poorly designed and slackly programmed software.

      If CS4 is a buggy piece of cr&p that constantly crashes, you must be using a crappy Windows machine
