Adobe releases Creative Suite 5.5 version offers integrated mobile and rental licenses
Creative Suite 5.5 has recently released by Adobe, whose fifth major version was released almost a year ago. The important thing in this release are not developments that could include applications that make up this package for designers and professionals, but new approaches for the future raises.
First, the enhancements are focused very much on enhancing the HTML 5 and CSS3 standards. Now we can export ePub format books with a large multimedia content in InDesign, Flash Pro supports the latest versions of Flash Player and Adobe AIR, there are improvements in the Mercury engine, Adobe Audition runs natively on Mac OS X and Dreamweaver many improvements to be compatible with Web standards (especially fine-tuning the effects that enhance CSS3 transitions).
The most important is perhaps the release of Adobe Photoshop Touch SDK, a development environment designed for tactile interfaces that have smartphones and tablets on the market today. Thanks to him, all programmers who want to be able to make their applications integrate with Photoshop and its services. An example of these applications are the same Nav, Color Wash and Eazel that Adobe has launched to demonstrate the power of the SDK: the idea is that while the computer is responsible for processing all the work with its more powerful processor, other devices such as tablet can be used to manipulate the work we are doing. For example, we can mix and create colors to your liking from an IPAD with Adobe Color Wash and use them through the local network for our computer Photoshop.
These three Adobe applications at a price: $ 2.99 for Color Wash, 4.99 and 1.99 for Eazel to Nav. You could say that serve as accessories for those with enhancements such as the iPad, while Adobe is expanding beyond borders to conventional computers.
With the release of Creative Suite 5.5 the company has used to propose another way to pay the licensing of these applications with a subscription service. Let us set the example of a Photoshop license: a license is priced at $ 699 (or $ 199 if you're upgrading), but now we can pay $ 29 a month Purchase an annual subscription to use it legally. If you do not want to commit for a year to pay the monthly fee, we can choose a "rental" of a license for $ 49 a month.
Not bad for testing the application before buying it, though perhaps for companies that want to rent then buy not very profitable, taking into account the full price of the licenses (the price of the Master Collection will be a prohibitive $ 2600 .) Of course, if we had the suite version 5 upgrade to version 5.5 is completely free because it is considered a new mid-cycle, cycle to be completed with time to market of the Creative Suite 6.
