The term “desktop publishing” no longer holds quite the same allure it did when PageMaker started a revolution on the Macintosh. More than 25 years later, print media is at a crossroads, with readers turning to tablets for consuming content once strictly confined to paper. With InDesign CS6, Adobe has finally hit its stride after years of trying to shoehorn digital media features into traditional print software, often with awkward results.
Adobe Illustrator has long been the choice for illustration professionals, designers, and anyone who wants to work with infinitely scalable vector graphics. Over the years it’s gained some highly impressive features, such as mesh tools for drawing photorealistic objects, perspective tools for taking the pain out of vanishing points, and much, much more. So, what can CS6 bring? Oh, just plenty of new features and an all-new interface.
