Which Adobe CS3 Suite? Indesign vs. DW
Debating upgrading to CS3 but which suite?

 5:01 pm on Dec 20, 2007 (gmt 0)

I do light graphics and web design using Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Dreamweaver. I was debating upgrading to the CS3 Suite but what a bewildering array of products they have now. And no upgrade except the huge master one seems to include both In Design and Dreamweaver.

Just curious what's the difference between the two?

I went for Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium. For DW CS3, I think it was about 400, Illustrator & PS CS3 where about 550 each, where I got the suite for $1,400 (about 700) and it included Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop and Flash CS3.

Worked out much cheaper than buying them seperately.

There is a very big difference between InDesign and Dreamweaver.

Dreamweaver, as you know is, WYSIWYG editor. So it is for the web.

InDesign is a layout program predominately for print. It is the Adobe equivalent to Quark.

Dreamweaver = web
InDesign = print

I seem to remember buying a more expensive version as it came with Photoshop which I had to have in preference to Fireworks.

Thanks so much everyone, I didn't realize the difference, that helps.
