Follow streamlined workflows no matter where they lead. Customer-inspired enhancements and simplified workflows within each Design Premium component make you more
efficient at everyday design and production tasks. But Design Premium lets you go far
beyond the everyday: With improved integration and more consistent interfaces among
Creative Suite components, you can venture into new creative territory while drawing on
your existing expertise. Begin the creative process in the design environment you know best
(usually Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign), certain that your work can be transferred
smoothly to Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, or Acrobat for refinement, packaging, and
high-quality output in virtually any medium. Drag and drop a Photoshop PSD file into a
Dreamweaver page to create a dynamically linked Smart Object; if the Photoshop source file
changes, simply click the Properties panel in Dreamweaver to update the image in the web
page. Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium makes it truly possible to deliver the complex,
consistent, high-quality cross-media campaigns that clients increasingly demand.
Collaborate from down the hall or around the world. Designers never work alone.
Whether you’re bouncing ideas off of a colleague, polling technical gurus for tips and tricks,
or seeking concept approval from clients, you need convenient tools for eliciting feedback,
finding help, and streamlining creative reviews. Design Premium enables you to communicate in a variety of ways without ever leaving your computer—or even the software you’re
using. Use a new online service, Adobe ConnectNow (a service of Acrobat.com), to
collaborate live with colleagues and clients near and far by sharing your screen right from
within your design software. Take advantage of an extensive community of Adobe experts
by searching Adobe-endorsed technical content directly from within Design Premium—no
more sifting through bottomless forums or endless, irrelevant web-search results.
Top new benefits of Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium
This document describes the top new benefits of Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium,
including new and enhanced features and streamlined ways of working within each Design
Premium component, as well as versatile, integrated cross-component workflows. Also
described are new tools for collaborating and for realizing the full creative potential of your
Design Premium software.
Enjoy essential design tools and services, expanded and refined
The latest release of Creative Suite 4 Design Premium extends way beyond feature-packed
new versions of InDesign, Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Dreamweaver,
and Acrobat Pro. For fast prototyping of websites and interactive designs, we’ve added
Fireworks CS4. We’ve also included powerful new online services for learning, collaborating,
and finding inspiration. For detailed information about individual features in specific
Design Premium components, refer to the documents listed in the sidebar on this page.

Streamline everyday tasks
Valuable new features in your favorite tools support smoother, more efficient workflows and
let you stay focused on the all-important creative process. In Illustrator CS4, lay out and
design multi-part projects using up to 100 variable-sized artboards in a single document;
save multiple artboards in a single, multipage PDF file or export them in one step as
sequentially numbered files in any supported file format; easily create complex vector shapes
with the new Blob Brush tool; and specify transparent colors within gradients to create and
fine-tune subtle interactions between objects.
In Illustrator, create and arrange up to 100 artboards of differing sizes, and then save them in a single, multipage PDF file or export them as sequentially numbered files.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 3
Two new panels in Photoshop CS4 Extended provide convenient yet exacting creative
control: The Adjustments panel bypasses dialog boxes and allows direct, nondestructive
editing without altering or losing your original image, and the Masks panel speeds creating
and fine-tuning pixel and vector masks for application of special effects. What’s more—a
top request from Photoshop users—you can now rotate the canvas so that you can work on
any image from any angle.
In Photoshop, rotate canvas and image together to any angle for convenient viewing and editing.
In InDesign CS4, use the redesigned Links
panel to easily find, manage, and organize
placed files; quickly scan a customizable
selection of linked-file attributes; and
identify files by scanning crystal-clear
thumbnails instead of confusing filenames.
For a fresh perspective on an InDesign
layout or to tweak unconventional design
elements, rotate the spread in 90-degree
increments. Use convenient new Smart
Guides in InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator,
and Fireworks to display information such
as height, width, X and Y coordinates, and
rotation and shear angles—as you drag—so
that you can precisely position or resize
objects. Design Premium offers improved
speed and accuracy so you can be more
productive than ever before.
In InDesign, sort by any column and easily scan the thumbnails in the enhanced Links panel to view detailed,
customizable information about linked content.
Use your existing expertise as a foundation for web, interactive, and
mobile design
The smoothly integrated software in Creative Suite 4 Design Premium lets you use work
created in the familiar environments of InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator as a platform for
experimenting with new media and delivery channels. Here’s one example of a highly
efficient workflow for developing a website or rich interactive application: Open Photoshop
or Illustrator layered artwork in Fireworks to begin building a prototype, and continue to
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 4
refine high-quality typographic elements thanks to the newly incorporated Adobe text
engine. To add Flash components or to produce and publish web pages, export the
Fireworks prototype as a CSS-based layout and import it into Flash or Dreamweaver.
Whether for websites or for Flash, Flex®, HTML, or Adobe AIR™ applications, you can
move from concept to mock-up to prototype to finished product while retaining every
modification you make from one step to the next.
Another possibility—combine the page layout and typographic strengths of InDesign with
the interactivity of Flash to create compelling dynamic documents. Start with an InDesign
layout that incorporates superior typography, multiple columns, long text flows, and rich
graphics, and export it in XFL format (the internal file format that allows for improved
integration within the Creative Suite 4 family). When you open the document in Flash, not
only will you see unparalleled fidelity between the InDesign and Flash versions, you can
also freely edit text and graphics. This new integration between InDesign and Flash lets
designers and developers collaborate closely, each using their favorite tools, to produce
engaging online reading experiences.
A third alternative—quickly create attention-getting brochures and datasheets by adding
dynamic buttons and page transitions to a layout in InDesign and then exporting it as a
SWF file for playback with Adobe Flash Player.
Finally, new visual design features in both Flash and Dreamweaver make it easier than ever
for designers who shun code to produce engaging web, interactive, and mobile designs.
In InDesign, quickly create a compelling interactive
document by using the new Page Transitions panel to
add animated transitions such as Page Turn. Then
export the document as a SWF file that anyone with
Adobe Flash Player or a web browser that supports
Flash can conveniently view.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 5
Set your ideas in motion with video and animation
If you’ve ever wanted to venture into animation and interactive design, now’s the time. New
object-based animation makes designing in Flash more straightforward and similar to
working with other Adobe creative applications. This enhanced ease of use reduces the
learning curve for print designers accustomed to working with static design elements.
Building a basic animation now takes two stunningly simple steps: Right-click an object on
the stage and choose Create Motion Tween, and then move the object. Motion paths are
generated automatically and can be easily edited using familiar Bezier curves. What’s more,
entire animations can be moved to new locations in a single step, and adjusting object
location, rotation, and scale is as simple as grab–move–release. New Motion Editor and
Motion Presets panels provide quick and exacting control over minute details, while
advanced tools for creating complex motion effects, applying decorative patterns, and
animating 2D objects in 3D space offer more creative options for designers and developers
alike. If you incorporate video or animation into your web and mobile designs, you’ll
appreciate being able to paint, retouch, and do pixel-level editing on every frame of a movie
file in Photoshop—especially with a new audio playback feature that makes it easier to sync
the visual effects to the audio track.
Creating a basic Flash animation is now a simple twostep process: Select an object and choose Create
Motion Tween, and then drag the object. The resulting
motion path can be easily edited using Bezier curves.
Capture attention with stunning 2D and 3D images
Photoshop CS4 Extended enables everything from streamlining everyday tasks to tackling
new creative possibilities. In addition to enjoying the convenient new Adjustments and
Masks panels and the canvas rotation feature described above, you can now zoom and pan
freely without delay or distortion, and paint more quickly and smoothly. Refine images
using enhanced Dodge, Burn, and Sponge tools that allow you to lighten or darken specific
areas while preserving natural-looking overall tone and color. Experiment with advanced
compositing enhancements, including 360-degree spherical panoramas, vignette correction,
expanded depth-of-field adjustments, and more.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 6
Powerful new 3D painting and compositing features make editing, enhancing, and
manipulating 3D images both exciting and easy. Convert 2D images to common 3D
shapes such as cubes, cylinders, or spheres. Paint directly on 3D models with all of the
powerful Photoshop image-editing tools, and see the results immediately. Create printquality 3D product shots that can be merged into consistently scaled, aligned, and lighted
composite images, or experiment with 3D logos that can be rotated in space while being
moved along an animation path.
Paint directly on 3D objects in Photoshop Extended and view the results immediately.
Deliver compelling content to mobile devices worldwide
Given the skyrocketing use of mobile devices around the world, getting up to speed with
mobile design offers both rapidly expanding business opportunities and intriguing creative
challenges. Adobe Device Central CS4 software, a visual testing tool that works with
content from most Creative Suite 4 components, makes developing mobile designs easier
and faster—even if you’re brand new to this emerging creative discipline. Develop content
Quickly and reliably test mobile content in a variety of simulated lighting environments by controlling test
settings for backlight, reflections, contrast, and more.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 7
with your favorite Adobe creative tool, and then use Device Central to preview and test it on
an extensive selection of devices under a variety of simulated real-life conditions. Whether
you’re creating wallpapers, screensavers, or even mobile websites, blogs, or “advergames,”
Device Central enables you to extend your workflow to successfully incorporate high-quality mobile content into cross-media campaigns.
New and enhanced features in Device Central CS4 include an automatically updated online
device library, automated testing on multiple devices, simulation of network performance
impact on user experience, and improved video-packaging tools. Device Central also
includes new tools for simplifying project management, collaboration, and deployment of
content to mobile phones, as well as streamlined workflows for handling mobile video.
Collaborate, package, and present in exciting new ways
Timely, convenient, and effective communication with clients and colleagues can make the
difference between a design project that’s a resounding success and one that misses the
mark, veers off schedule, goes over budget, or all three. And how you package and present
your work—whether you’re pitching a new job or seeking review at a project milestone—
determines whether you land that work or get that go-ahead.
Design Premium includes several exciting new capabilities to help you access the timely
information you need or get the favorable reception you want. E-mail a PDF document with
built-in synchronized viewing; whether scrolling page to page or zooming in for detail, you
and the recipient navigate the document together, simultaneously seeing exactly the same
view so you can collaborate in real time.
You can also give your colleagues or clients a front-row view of your desktop by using
ConnectNow—an Acrobat.com service connected into key components of Design Premium.
Just choose File > Share My Screen in InDesign CS4, Illustrator CS4, Dreamweaver CS4, or
other components of Design Premium, and start working online with up to two guests at a
time for no additional service charge. Simple to use, easy to access, and with reliable
cross-platform support, ConnectNow allows you to more readily share knowledge, get
immediate feedback, and streamline your
creative review workflow. For more
information, see “Creative Pro Online
Services” on page 11.
Showcase completed projects or works in
progress using new PDF Portfolios to
deliver dynamic, interactive presentations
that anyone using Adobe Reader or Adobe
Acrobat Pro can view. Combine layouts,
drawings, images, video, audio, animations,
and other elements into a single PDF
Portfolio; add navigation by easily customizing and branding a built-in, professionally
designed navigation template or by developing your own with Flash or Flex. Marry the
visual fidelity of PDF with the dynamic
appeal of Flash to make your work look its
very best.
Quickly package your work in an elegant, highly
secure PDF Portfolio, complete with customizable
layouts, color schemes, welcome page, header,
animated page transitions, and much more.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 8
Achieve high-quality production at every step in every medium
Creative vision is one part of the success equation; high-quality execution of that vision
is the other. Design Premium offers a range of powerful preflight, preview, testing, and
correction tools to help you achieve precise control over your finished product, catching
mistakes as they occur rather than at the last minute, when it can be costly and timeconsuming to correct them.
In InDesign, a new Preflight panel provides continuous, real-time, comprehensive error
checking and notification so that you can detect, locate, and fix problems on the fly directly
in the layout. No more discovering just when you’re about to go on press that a thorny
production problem on one page means reflowing text on all the rest. In Illustrator, a
new Separations preview panel prevents output surprises such as unexpected spot colors;
missed, unwanted, or white overprinting; and CMYK blacks in text and placed files.
Using Live Preflight in InDesign, you can open the
Preflight panel to be alerted to errors as they occur
rather than when the presses are just about to roll.
Live View lets you see exactly how your pages will
appear in a web browser directly from within
Dreamweaver, so you can quickly tweak the code
right then and there.
In Dreamweaver, too, you can deliver an error-free final product in less time. Live View
previews your pages under real-world browser conditions while still giving you direct access
to the code, and improved JavaScript
debugging helps you deliver flawless code
the first time around. Acrobat 9 Pro also
includes numerous enhancements that
make preflighting more powerful and
convenient, including support for new
PDF/X standards; new checks and fixups;
and refinements to the Preflight panel that
make it easier to find, select, and organize
profiles, checks, and fixups. A new option in
the Output Preview panel allows you to
click on any object to view metadata and
information about images, text, graphics,
and object stacking order. And for mobile
content, as you’ve already learned, Device
Central offers automated testing using an
extensive, automatically updated selection
of device profiles.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 9
Discover power, depth, and ease at your fingertips
Professional design just keeps getting more fast-paced, demanding, and competitive. To
maintain your edge (and your equilibrium), you need design tools so well crafted that you
never have to think about them—they’re there when and where you need them and they do
exactly what you expect, so you can remain absorbed in the creative process.
To allow you to work smoothly and swiftly within components and to move effortlessly
among them, Design Premium offers several elegant, cross-component interface enhancements, including N-up view, an application bar, an application frame, and tabbed documents (shown below), and task-based workspaces (shown on the following page).
Application bar. Use new control buttons to quickly
switch to a new workspace, modify the view of a
document, perform a search, or quickly access
elements such as Adobe Bridge CS4.
N-up view. View multiple documents in a single
window so that you can compare content and
seamlessly drag–copy objects across documents.
Use a button in the application bar to quickly switch
your view configuration—side by side, top and
bottom, or however you wish (in InDesign,
Photoshop, and Illustrator).
Application frame (new for Mac). Work with
documents and panels in a single window for
maximum flexibility. Easily move or resize the
window without losing access to panels or other
opened documents.
Tabbed documents. Now you can easily work with
multiple documents by quickly tabbing to find the
one you need—without maximizing each
document individually.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 10
In addition to harnessing shared interface enhancements, individual components offer
further refinements that make commonly used tools easier to find the first—or the
umpteenth—time you use them. For example, new easy access to on-object and onartboard controls in Illustrator let you focus on your artwork, not on searching for
panels and options.
Creative Pro Online Services
Connect to the power of the online community through your creative desktop. New online
services accessed from within Design Premium let you search for help from the online
community; share your screen with colleagues or clients in a few quick clicks; get color
inspiration from your peers; more easily and efficiently manage day-to-day web content
updates; and more. (All Creative Pro Online Services require an Internet connection.)
Adobe Community Help. Get the power of an online search engine within Design Premium, but with more targeted results thanks to Adobe Community Help. Searchable
content includes the in-depth, product-specific Help Adobe has always delivered, plus
additional Adobe and third-party content chosen by experts at Adobe and in the design and
production communities. With Adobe Community Help, you can find exactly the answers
you need, fast. (Internet connection required for extended content.)
Adobe Kuler™ panel. Explore, create, and share color themes with Adobe Kuler. Kick start
your creative projects with color inspiration from the online Kuler community. Browse
thousands of themes by newest, most popular, or highest rated; or search themes by tag
word, title, or creator. Themes can be downloaded and moved to your Swatches panel with a
single click. Or use an interactive color wheel that supports standard harmony rules to
develop your own color themes that you can save, move to your Swatches panel, and upload
to share with others. (Internet connection required for community functionality.)
Acrobat.com. Use Acrobat.com services with Acrobat to store and share large documents,
collect form data, and review documents with anyone, anywhere. Thanks to the connection
between one of the Acrobat.com services, Adobe ConnectNow, and Creative Suite 4 Design
Premium, you can meet live over the web to share your screen, present creative concepts
and ideas, and brainstorm with up to two online guests for no additional service charge. To
share your screen with colleagues and clients, choose File > Share My Screen from Adobe
CS4 components, such as Photoshop CS4 Extended or Flash CS4 Professional, or choose
File > Collaborate > Share My Screen from Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro. Guests can then see your
desktop on their screens as you work. You can exchange ideas using the chat pod, add a live
video or audio feed, or use the Whiteboard feature to enable guests to comment on content.
Adobe Creative Suite 4 Design Premium—What’s New 11
You can even temporarily hand over control of the screen to a guest to collaborate on a file.
Additional Acrobat.com services, such as Share, Create PDF, My Files, and Adobe Buzzword,
are accessible via Acrobat 9 Pro, an Adobe AIR version of Acrobat.com (included with this
edition of Creative Suite 4), and your web browser. (Internet connection required.)
InContext Editing. Make your web page content available for online editing by others when
you use InContext Editing. Offer your colleagues, clients or end users an easier way to make
simple edits without impacting the design integrity of your web pages—and without help
from you or additional software on their computers. Use the InContext Editing toolbar in
Dreamweaver to set up your web pages, and then use the preview of this online service to
enable content changes by others. (This service is currently available as a preview technology on Adobe Labs, and accessible from within Adobe Dreamweaver CS4. During this
preview, you can use it at no additional charge. Further information about its availability
will be posted to Adobe Labs and www.adobe.com/dreamweaver when appropriate.)
What’s new in Adobe Bridge CS4
Adobe Bridge CS4—included with Adobe Creative
Suite 4 Design Premium—is a visual file browser that
helps you search, view, and sort through many assets
to quickly find the ones you want. New features and
enhancements include:
