Top reasons to upgrade to Adobe® Creative Suite® 5 Design Standard

Complex selections made easy—Get better-than-ever results in Adobe Photoshop® CS5 when selecting tricky image elements such as hair, and eliminate background color around selection edges.

Simplified object selection and editing—Save time by performing repetitive layout tasks efficiently in Adobe InDesign® CS5. 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.

Innovative paint brushes—Revolutionize your everyday creative print work with exciting tools in Adobe Illustrator® CS5 and Photoshop CS5. Create scalable vector artwork with the nuance and subtlety of fine art, enhance photographs with painterly effects, and paint freely on screen much as you would with physical brushes and paints.

The ability to combine multiple page sizes simplifies the layout of documents with complex folds, such as this magazine with a cover flap. Not only can you create pages with different sizes in a document—you can include them in a single spread.

Resolution-independent effects—In Illustrator CS5, apply raster effects such as drop shadows, glows, blurs, and textures that maintain a consistent appearance at different resolutions throughout the design process.

Production and printing tools—Find and place files fast using the new Mini Bridge panel as you work in InDesign CS5 and Photoshop CS5. Export large PDF files in the background, and eliminate font-related production problems using document-installed fonts in InDesign.

The new Mixer Brush helps make it easy to take a sketch and turn it into a painting.

Enhanced text tools—In InDesign CS5, take advantage of efficiencies such as text-change tracking and paragraphs that span and split columns.

Faster, more precise drawing tools—In Illustrator CS5, adjust stroke width interactively using convenient width handles, precisely size and position arrowheads, and align dashes symmetrically. Draw shapes and scenes in accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-point linear perspective.

Multiple page sizes in a single InDesign file—Streamline design and production of projects with multiple page sizes, such as marketing collateral and complex magazine folds. Include different page sizes in a single document and apply the same master page to different-sized layouts.

Accelerated creative reviews with Adobe CS Live online services*—Bring creative reviews directly into your design workflow using new CS Live online services* that integrate with your Creative Suite software. Conveniently initiate online reviews from within Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign. Reviewers comment in their browser using simple annotation tools, and you view comments in the context of your work—making it much easier to match each comment to the right design element. CS Live online services are complimentary for a limited time—visit for details.

Faster performance in Photoshop—Perform day-to-day imaging tasks faster, and process very large images at least 10 times faster.1

1Requires a 64-bit-capable computer with a 64-bit version of Mac OS, Microsoft® Windows® 7, or Windows Vista®. Actual performance increase varies depending on the installed drivers, the features that you’re using, and other factors.


Paint on masked areas that are automatically created when you choose Draw Inside mode.

Select options for your Bristle Brush to achieve just the feel that you want. Pick a color, then select an object for your mask and paint as loosely as you wish inside the shape.
