Adobe Creative Suite (formerly CS6) is a discontinued line of software suite of computer applications designed by Adobe Systems, a software company known for its flash applications and other technologies. Each new edition contained several separate Adobe software programs, including Photoshop, Acrobat, Premier Pro, or After Effects, which soon became the industry-standard software for many graphic arts jobs. Adobe's Creative Suite contained software that was specific to the needs of professional photographers and artists. Adobe has released versions of Creative Suite in the past few years as freeware and shareware but has also continuously developed new tools and features for users.
Adobe has upgraded its Creative Suite series, making each product more user-friendly and adding new tools and features to increase productivity and efficiency. The Adobe CC line has also been updated several times, with each version containing improvements to functionality and tools as well as new features. The Adobe CC line includes a line of products designed specifically for web designers and developers. For those who are already familiar with the program, the CC line offers advanced tools and features through the use of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash, Adobe Illustrator, or Adobe Elements, making it a complete media application and tool set for both artists and professionals.
Adobe has continually improved upon the software for version Adobe Creative Suite 2.0. It was released in September of 2021, following several years of extensive testing and revisions. At this point, Adobe has released an even greater version, Adobe Creative Suite 2.5, which is expected to be even more effective and useful than Adobe Creative Suite 1.5. Adobe is currently releasing version Adobe CS2.5 to the public; however, interested parties can apply to have the program released as free software through Adobe's support options.
