Summary: Horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE. So I can spend infinite dollars just to have an upgraded version of whatever Adobe program? I don't think so. This is the end of something that once was amazing. Now I'm stuck with CS5 my whole life because I refuse to continually money. I already have a ton of college debt. NOT HAPPY, ADOBE.
Pros: Everything looks very flat if you like a flat look then you will consider this a pro I do not but I had to put something in this box.
Cons: This software does not allow you to choose which version of Office you are stuck with 2013 version. Also if you have a hotmail account it will not automatically pull the emails from this account when you open Outlook you must do it manually every time.
Summary: With the Creative Cloud, I get constant updates, instant access to the Adobe Community (support, exchange, tutorials), freed up hard drive space, easy access to files across multiple computers and work sites, seamless integration between the Adobe products I use on a daily basis, as well as the ability to tinker with and learn products I haven't used before. I'm impressed and pleased with my investment.
Pros: Great new updates from CS3 that I was used to using, The 3d function for Photoshop is vastly improved. Illustrator has a couple nifty improvements also. Acrobat seems to be cut down. Most of the programs included have improvement to them, coming from CS3 is a pretty big leap in functionality. Coming from CS 4 or 5 though its not that big of a leap. Newegg has it cheaper by 300 bucks compared to the Adobe store. 64 Bit for most programs is nice. Speedgrade is a nifty a...
Cons: Lack of Director, OK I get it they want to kill Director and have us use Flash instead, I LIKE Director for quick kiosk type projects, much faster to develop than in flash but I'm not gonna pay an extra 1k for it when it should be included in the master collection. Not all programs are 64 bit yet. For the price and compilation of programs it would be nice to have a couple of extra font packages or plugins included with it.
