Deliver Exceptional Print Designs Faster

Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop
Remove any image detail or object and watch as Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop magically fills in the space left behind. Match lighting, tone, and noise so it looks as if the removed content never existed.
Complex Image Selection Made Easy in Photoshop
Produce highly accurate masks and make selections faster with Photoshop CS5. Even the trickiest image elements, such as hair and foliage, can be masked quickly and accurately to produce realistic composite images.
Content-Aware Scaling in Photoshop
Automatically recompose an image as you resize it, preserving vital areas as the image adapts to the new dimensions, with Content-Aware Scaling in Photoshop. Get the perfect image in one step without cropping and retouching.
Smooth Panning and Zooming in Photoshop
Gracefully navigate to any area of an image with ultra-smooth zooming and panning in Photoshop. Maintain clarity as you zoom to individual pixels, and easily edit at the highest magnification using the Pixel Grid.
Puppet Warp in Photoshop
Precisely warp or stretch graphics, text, or image elements to create unique new looks for your designs.
Beautiful Strokes in Illustrator
Dynamically create and edit strokes with infinitely adjustable widths, precisely position and scale arrowheads and dashes, and finely control the scaling of art brushes along a path in Illustrator.
Multiple Artboards in a Single Illustrator File
Work on up to 100 artboards of varying sizes in one Illustrator file -- named, organized, and viewed the way you want.
Perspective Drawing in Illustrator
Draw shapes in accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-point linear perspective to create the look of realistic depth and distance.
Gradients Exposed in Illustrator
Interact with gradients right on an object. Set gradient angle, position, and elliptical dimensions. Add and edit colors using sliders -- all with immediate feedback where you work.
Simplified InDesign Object Selection and Editing
Perform finicky layout tasks efficiently. Manipulate frames and frame content without switching tools. Dynamically adjust white space between objects to reposition page items. Use on-object controls to modify frame corners directly in the layout.
Multiple Page Sizes in a Single InDesign File
Include different page sizes in a single InDesign document, and apply the same master page to different-sized layouts.
Paragraphs That Span or Split Columns
Quickly create text that spans or splits into multiple columns in just a few steps.
Gap Tool in InDesign
Quickly adjust the size of a gap between two or more items. The Gap tool is a one-step way to adjust your layout by directly manipulating the white space.
Live Preflight in InDesign
Preflight while you design for better results, greater time savings, and lower production costs. Continuous preflighting alerts you to potential production problems in real time. View contextual tips to help you correct errors directly in layout.
Multi-File Place in InDesign
Import several files in one step. See thumbnail views of the files and cycle through them until you find the one you want to place.
Preflight Checks and Fixes in Acrobat Pro
Reduce errors and delays at the printer. Preview, preflight, correct, and prepare PDF files for high-end print production and digital publishing. Run checks and fixes on selected objects, and view improved reports.
Adobe PDF Creation, Editing, and Delivery
Distribute layouts reliably using Acrobat X Pro to create simple PDF documents, and package layouts, drawings, images, animation, video, audio, and other files in a single, polished PDF Portfolio.
Action Wizard in Acrobat Pro
Automate routine, multistep PDF tasks in Adobe Acrobat X Pro. The Action Wizard guides you through creating an Action, which is an automated sequence of actions that can be applied to a single PDF or batches of files.
PDF Portfolio Creation
Deliver multiple files and file types, including video, sound, and interactive elements, in a single compelling format with PDF Portfolios.
Visual Media Browsing
Find files fast by browsing thumbnails instead of filenames with Adobe Bridge. Or browse thumbnails and place files from the Mini Bridge panel in Photoshop CS5 and InDesign CS5.5.
Creative Reviews within Your Design Workflow
Streamline reviews through integration with Adobe CS Review, an Adobe CS Live online service. Initiate shared reviews from within Photoshop CS5, Illustrator CS5, and InDesign CS5.5. Invite others to comment with easy-to-use browser-based tools, and view their comments in the context of your design.
Performance on Newer Operating Systems
Take advantage of the power and performance of newer Apple and Microsoft operating systems so you can work more quickly. And Photoshop CS5 is 64-bit native, which means even faster image-editing no matter which computer platform you use.
Help When You Need It
Find the best answers for your Adobe product questions with Adobe Community Help, an online service for instruction, inspiration, and support.
Consistent Adobe User Interface
Work quickly and intuitively thanks to a consistent approach to the user interface across all Design Standard components.
Path Join Enhancements in Illustrator
Join open paths in a single keystroke with objects selected, choosing corner joins or smooth joins.
