Adobe software has always been highly respected for creative design and development. Adobe creates programs that allow you to produce amazing designs and creations with ease. The Adobe Creative Suite 4 (CS4) Design Premium is the company's latest release of sophisticated and professional-level software that bundles many separate programs together as a suite. Each program in the suite works individually, or you can integrate the programs together by using Version Cue, Adobe's work management software that helps keep track of revisions and edits, and Adobe Bridge, an independent program that helps you control file management with thumbnails, metadata, and other organizational tools.

You can use the Adobe CS4 Design Premium programs to create a wide range of products, from illustrations, page layouts, and professional documents, to Web sites and photographic manipulations. Integrating the CS4 programs extends your possibilities as a designer. Don't worry about the programs being too difficult to figure out — just come up with your ideas and start creating!
