Adobe CS5.5 Upgrade vs. CS5: Review Explains

By Posted 16 May 2011, 14:55

For those of you wanting to know what Adobe CS5.5 upgrade has compared to CS5, a recent review aims to give you the answers. One thing we do know, Adobe would have had to pull out all the stops, as CS5 proved time and again how truly great is was/is. Do not get too exited though, as there are only a small number of enhancements in the latest version.

If you are in the market for a photographic suite that has bundles of extras, then the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 will have you amazed at just how big it all is. What users will be pleased about is that Audition is back and works on both Windows and Mac OS X. Coming back down to earth though, most of the new features are just updates to be able to work with video production techniques.

PC Pro has gone in-depth with the review, and even talks about how there is now support for RED cameras, along with some new features that makes it much easier when picking out a white point. There is now greater support for more graphics cards – the downside that they are still “Nvidia’s CUDA for acceleration.”

So the tough decision is if the number of feature upgrades warrants the amount of money you will have to part with in order to purchase Adobe CS5.5. If you choose the Premiere Pro, then you will have to part with £719. If you want a smooth and fast upgrade along with app integration, then you cannot say no to CS5.5.
