Adobe Systems plans to launch Creative Suite 3 later this month, marking the largest software release in the company's 25-year history.

Creative Suite 3, an overhaul of its publishing applications, is scheduled for introduction on March 27, the company confirmed in a blog posting on Monday. The software will begin shipping in the spring.


I have big expectations - this is the largest single release Adobe has made since the takeover of MacroMedia...

My partner has been using the preview release of photoshop CS 3 for a few months (if you have CS 2 pro, you can upgrade to the demo of CS 3). I'm not a graphics guy, but the photoshop overhaul is pretty amazing, and the application is a big step forward in overall usability.

I've been using Photoshop CS3 as well, and there are some things that I simply can't live without now.

One of them is the new smart layers. You can apply filters (not effects) and turn them on/off, etc. without hurting the integrity of the graphic.

But mostly I am looking forward to the dream weaver overhaul. I have so many problems with dream weaver. Does anyone else get the "No Error Occurred" error?

No - I'm still on the "An error has occurred" level ;)

3D capabilities? hmm Adobe does offer Acrobat 3D: [adobe.com...]
We've toyed with the idea of picking it up but at the current price of $545 for the upgrade and $995 for the full, its a bit much for something we may not use all that much. Based on the price alone though I doubt Adobe would include this in the bundle.

It will be interesting to see what it costs, and if its affordable for the "small" firms out there. Also I'm really hopeful that they will give some responsiveness back to Photoshop, CS2 is bloatware in my opinion. And even though I know there is not much hope at all, I can still hope that they will leave in Fireworks, my fav for doing up web graphics quickly.
