    Comments about Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Windows (Student & Teacher Edition):

    I use part of this suite at work, but I decided to get it for my personal use because of a couple of projects I'm working on. I wanted Dreamweaver for the quick and easy way of looking at responsive layouts, and I'm using inDesign to give myself flexibility in print/ebook layouts. I'm still learning, and having this suite for myself makes the training go faster.

    I previously used the Web Premium CS4 suite, but the addition of InDesign in this CS6 suite means one-stop shopping for everything I need to get done this year.

      I wanted to buy the last version of the Creative Suite series. Did not want to be tied to a Cloud Subscription.

                Comments about Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Windows (Student & Teacher Edition):

                I have been using adobe products for years and this meets all my expectations. I upgrade to CS6 because it was compatible with windows 7 unlike my former version. Unfortunately, the DVDs are useless as last October Adobe invalidated them. You can go to adobe chat online and they will help you. They attempted their "easy fix" when that did not work, I had to wait over an hour to download the files. Seeing it has been almost a year since they pulled the DVD validity, I would think they would no longer have the DVDs available for purchase. I see this as Adobe's failure in customer service, I would be much or understanding about the inconvenience if it was a month or two ago, but they have had a full year.

                  Comments about Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium for Windows (Student & Teacher Edition):

                  I have had old copies of Photoshop, PageMaker (I said old!) and Acrobat for various projects, but haven't been motivated to upgrade until now. Why? Because I'm finding my old website needed a facelift and I felt Dreamweaver was right for me. In addition, my daughter has shown a real interest in art and especially graphic design. Rather than buy any one upgrade, obtaining the entire Creative Suite was the best value. The programs included are extremely powerful, almost too much for a DIY hobbyist like me, but combined with the free DVD from B&H and with the purchase of AGI's "Digital Classroom" in a book overview, I have found the new programs aren't that different for most of my needs (image editing, newsletter and flyer design) and they are now integrated in ways my old versions were not. I used my daughter's school status to purchase the DVD version rather than the cloud, because as a DIYer, I don't get income to sustain or justify monthly charges regardless of how good the updates might be. But as a comprehensive package, it should last me a good long time for a single price. I'm not sure I'll learn everything I need before the package becomes obsolete!

                  This package has a bunch of great tools. Adobe products are the industry standard. You can't go wrong with this package at this price.

                  However, Acrobat X is included in this bundle. Adobe has released XI (11) but Creative Suite 6 buyers will not get a free upgrade to XI. Acrobat is included as a bonus in the Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium package. So consider yourself lucky to have it in the first place. Acrobat XI will not be included until the next release of CS 6 D&W Premium.

I use the product to maintain the athletic website for a college as well as do promotionals for events. With a little practice it is to get the hang of.

                      Adobe has come through with brilliant tools for the photographer and graphics designer. Easy to use and well worth the money. The only gripe I have with the program is that Bridge does not work properly on my systems unless you create a NEW Admin account. There has to be a better work around.

                              I am a photography major with a very strong interest in the use of Flash Professional, I also love using Fireworks to create web galleries. I love that the student editions are FULL VERSIONS of Adobes professional software. I highly recommend purchasing any software that you can receive a discount on whilst you are in college.

                                CS6 is a significant step up in ease of use and power from v5. Unlike 5.5, which seemed to be just an excuse to charge for an upgrade, V6 has advantages well worth the upgrade fee. The content aware editing capabilities are much improved over v5. NR capabilities is much improved, though still not as powerful as plug in solutions like NW Pro and Noise Ninja. Overall, a good value.

                                I use Photoshop for retouching restoration of photos for our image processing software we develop. CS6 has several tools and functions that make life easier in this respect. In particular, the adaptive wide angle has made things faster where previously, the free transform tool was used to manually correct perspective problems. Well worth the educational price. One minor problem is that the shortcuts do not always work and some tabs tend to disappear at random times.

                                  The last adobe CS I used was CS3 and this is a huge improvement over it. A lot of new features in Photoshop and I like the ease of use in Dreamweaver a lot. This is making my web design class go very smoothly.
