Amazon.com Product Description

Mathcad PLUS 6.0 lets you use real math notation all the time--with an interactive, visual interface--to set up, analyze, solve, and document all kinds of technical problems.

With Mathcad PLUS 6.0, you get a new set of built-in procedural operators you can use to build your own functional programs right in your Mathcad worksheet. Just click on the operators to define local variables, loops, branches, nested data structures, and recursive functions. And in practically no time, you'll be creating programs that operate on scalars, vectors, matrices, and more.

These operators are not only integrated into Mathcad's user interface, but they're also "live." Change any data, variable, or function on which they depend, and the result is automatically recalculated. And they use real math notation. What's more, because they're visual, you can instantly see the effect of looping and branching. They can also include or be part of any Mathcad expression. And they can depend on the result of any prior computation -- numeric or symbolic.

With Mathcad PLUS 6.0, you can also define your own notation by creating operators with arguments that compute. Just connect the math symbols from any Windows font to your own Mathcad functions. Then, for example, you can build standard logic operators or operators for convolution, function composition, or finding the derivative at a point.

Statistics are important to just about everyone who works with technical calculations. And with Mathcad PLUS 6.0, you'll be able to perform hypothesis testing and build models with probabilistic components. Mathcad PLUS 6.0 includes a set of 16 of the most common statistical distributions, including chi-square, F, t, uniform, normal, binomial, Poisson, beta, Cauchy, exponential, gamma, geometric, log-normal, logistic, negative binomial, and Weibull. A regression function has been added for polynomial curve and surface fitting, while the existing linear regression has been extended to perform multivariate linear regression. And four new data smoothing functions--median smooth, Loess, supsmooth and ksmooth--have been added for advanced data analysis.

With the new visualization tools in Mathcad PLUS 6.0, you'll be able to look at your work in some helpful new ways. Three new graph types have been added: vector, 3-D bar, and 3-D scatter plots. Backplanes and new axis options are now available for 3-D graphs. You can also use the new animation capabilities to bring your work to life, animating graphs, numerical results, and images. This means you can view systems over time or as any other variable changes. And you can export animations as standard Windows AVI files. What's more, you can import bitmap images into your worksheets as matrices and manipulate them with all of Mathcad's functionality.

Graphs are also easier to create and format. There's even an updated graphics dialog box that gives you true interactive graphics capabilities. Want to change a graph from 3-D scatter to contour? Just change the graph type and hit the Apply button. And because the dialog box remains on screen, it's easy to modify your graph again and again until you find the best way to analyze your data and present your solutions.

Mathcad PLUS 6.0 lets you put "live" equations right into text areas. You can also highlight text in color to bring attention to key points. Justify and center text for a more effective presentation. And for full word processing capabilities, you can export your complete Mathcad worksheets to Microsoft Word.

New QuickSheets give you lots of shortcuts that help you learn new features in just a few quick steps. They remind you how to use features you've forgotten about. They offer shortcuts in analyses you use often. They're called QuickSheets, and they're one of the most useful new tools built into Mathcad PLUS 6.0.

Let's say you want to use the new polynomial regression function. There's a QuickSheet to show you how. Just change a few parameters, copy the QuickSheet into your own worksheet, and you're done. Or maybe you need help creating an x-y plot. There's another QuickSheet for that. In all, Mathcad has over 100 QuickSheets, and they're just a mouse click away, meaning less time leafing through the user's manual and more time solving problems.

In addition to the QuickSheets, there are new online help Tooltips that appear when you move the cursor over a button. New toolbars you can move around on screen can customize the look of your Mathcad environment. A new 3-D look and feel make this the most usable Mathcad ever.

To collaborate with clients, colleagues, and associates, just click on the palette and you can transmit your Mathcad worksheets and analyses across most major e-mail systems -- including Microsoft Mail and cc:Mail.

You can link directly to the World Wide Web to find Mathcad worksheets that are relevant to just about any problem you're working on. This means you have access to analyses performed not just by people within your company, but by colleagues in other organizations, including top universities. And it's all in real math notation.

Using Mathcad PLUS 6.0, you can now create documents with hyperlinks to other documents. What's more, links between Mathcad worksheets can point to other Mathcad worksheets stored locally in a Web server. Just double-click on the link, and Mathcad will take you to the linked worksheet--wherever it is.

There's just one barrier that has been added: To improve both security and quality control, MathSoft enabled you to create locked sections in Mathcad PLUS 6.0 with optional passwords. The locks display a date and time stamp so you can know at a glance when the section was last reviewed. That means you can share critical documents with others in your organization and feel confident that key equations are unchangeable. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Call MAthSoft and ask one question before you buy!
There is a program called "C_DILLA" that Mathsoft has seen fit to install in a hidden file on some of its products. Just do a web search under the keywords

"C_DILLA", "Mathcad", and "spyware" (or any combination with C_DILLA in there. You will get a lot of information.)

Call MathSoft and MAKE SURE that this earlier Mathcad version does not install C_DILLA on your system.

If C_DILLA is installed, then I suggest you do web search on the effects that C_DILLA has on your CD burner.

You have been warned.

If C_DILLA is not part of this program, then buy it. Mathcad is the best of its genre. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Horsepower at a give-away price . . .
I am longtime user of DesignCAD. Started with DesignCAD 95. I've also compared numerous CAD programs against it in my quest for POWER and USEABILITY.

While other programs offer more for a price . . . this software has been my consistent favorite. EASY to learn, and capable beyond what most users will need for 2D drafting and 3D modeling.

Customizable menus and toolboxes, as well as macro and Basiccad scripting give uses of all levels control over the design process. Keyboard shortcuts quickly become second-nature and speed up the process considerably.

From custom equipment trailers, conveyors and farm equipment, to home remodeling and aircraft parts, this program has been a pleasure. Even complex curved surfaces and transparent solids are within reach of the average user.

The new owner: IMSI, is less responsive than the former: Upperspace Inc, but the user forum at is a treasure trove of answers and help from advanced DesignCAD users. It's one of the best CAD forums on the web.

4-0 out of 5 stars I've Used this Program for Years and It's Great
I'm writting this review to correct some reviews on this site which are very unfair, written by users who seem to have only tried out DesignCAD for a couple of days.

I've used DesignCAD for years, for everything from designing furniture to creating 3D models for a mathematics class and it has been able to do anything I ask of it. Easy to use. Versatile to customize. Adaptable with 2 scripting tools, one simple enough for a non-programmer, the other the full-blown Visual Basic for Apps. If you want an honest appraisal, go to http://forums.upperspace.com to get the opinion of devoted users who have been loyal to this wonderful program for many years.

Don't let the low price fool you.

4-0 out of 5 stars value for money
this product is great value for money. it is easy to learn and is very customisable. the ability to create macros to automate drawing tasks is a huge advantage and is simple to use.

support is offered via the discussion forum on the website http://www.upperspace.com/products/designcad.asp and is a great source of knowledge.

very good!

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY!!!
I gave this a one star rating because I had to pick something. This CAD package deserves no credit. I purchased a copy of this software a few weeks ago. Once you receive the CD you must then contact the company for an activation code to have full use of the software!!! Activation was easy online. But, that's where all the support comes to a screeching halt. If you purchase the package get some insecticide ready as it is FULL of bugs!!! After several phone calls and several e-mails spanning the course of TWO WEEKS I finally got someone to relocate the patch on their server so that I could download it. (With all the manufacturing and other businesses moving across the border you would think they would do a better job to keep themselves employed.) Back to the bugs, and to name a few, the screen requires a constant manual refresh each time you move your view. The vertical scroll bar on the viewing area will slide all the way down covering a toolbox on the right side of the screen. Once it's down there you can't move it back up, you instead start selecting the tools that were hidden by the scroll bar! Select a pattern in the Hatch menu, then when you get ready to do a Hatch Fill, you've got to select it again even though it's believed to be the default Hatch pattern for the drawing! Believe me there's plenty more. No one answers the phone in tech support. IMSI tech support avoids answering the phone (they also distribute TurboCAD). The customer service department will gladly take down a message, but that's all that appears to happen. A word of advice, save your money for a better written, better supported package. What a waste!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible
After a few days of use you must get an activation code. But just try to reach the company for the code. After being told by their computer to hold for the next rep, after a while they dump you to voice mail. Of course they never call back.

A big wast of $75. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars RAW file support rocks!
I've read complaints about activation, but I didn't have any problem with that. Of course, you need to be connected to the internet and you you can't let Aunt May borrow the disk to put on her computer so she can then give it to Grandma to put on hers, and so on and so on.... As far as the upgrades, the ability to work with the digital negatives (RAW files) it is worth the upgrade alone! I have a Canon 10D and the difference in my photos has greatly improved just by being able to tweak the little things (exposure, sharpness, shadows, etc.). I thought the file browser in versoin 7 was just a novelty, but the one here in CS is actually a powerfull tool. I stopped using ACDSee! I thought that although the healing brush is a cool tool, Photoshop didn't improve much going from 6 to 7, and I didn't expect much from CS in the way of changes. Boy was I wrong! This was the upgrade I was waiting for. Well done Adobe!

4-0 out of 5 stars Activation is becoming a standard for major software
For the big companies you can expect activation to be part of the package. Microsoft, Adobe, Macromedia all do it now. They have a lot to lose and if this is one way to get more folks to pay instead of passing one paid for disk around, well, it works.

As for the product, I have loaded the 30 day trial and in about 15 days will purchase the upgrade. I like what I have played with so far and the filters are nice. I made some posterized pics out of a bad photo to check it out and was truly amazed.

Don't let activation be the stopping point. If you need the program, get it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Plug-Ins Incompatibility: the deal breaker
I am a professional photographer, and, though I came to this page planning on buying PS-8/CS I just bought PS-7 instead ( I am currently using PS-6.5).

Having used PS since V2 I have found that getting every other upgrade has been the most satisfactory way to go. Until V4 the real strength and utility of PS was in its ability to make excellent color separations (for ultimate printing on a press). It has never been a state of the art image editor, and until V4, was not even a decent one.

PS-6 was the first version I was happy with both for editing, and for pre-press. PS-7 did not add much, so was going to skip it for PS-8.

Instead of PS-8 we get PS-CS which has valuable new tools in it (I wanted it for the "patch tool" alone!), but which has more problems than new features.

As do many of the other commenters, I do not like software activation. Computers are fragile, MS-Windows even more so - but, unfortunately - the only new, fast, and affordable programs are written for Windows. So, if you are counting on a Windows system, you better have a backup system (or two). I have four computers that I am actively using at the moment (3 desktops and a portable) - but, as I only use one at a time, I certainly do not feel that I am violating any of my software licenses by having a program installed on all four (though, with PS, I actually have different versions installed on each of the computers).

I also do not like WinXP (It was recently installed at my office). Of my personal computers one runs W2K, two W98, and one Linux/Lindows. Software written for any WinVer except for XP will run on Lindows (albeit more slowly) and it is ever so much more stable - Though W2K/NT3("5") - is actually quite good. My feeling is that is one of the main reasons the new versions of Adobe products are written to XP (yes, I do think there is a close relationship between Adobe & MS).

But. Having said all that, I would have bought XP just so that I could run PS-CS except for the deal breaker: Plug-In incompatibility.

Years ago I was trying to decide which 35mm camera system to go with. I had pretty well decided on Canon when they announced what was to be their THIRD lens mount system in 8 years: the old lenses would not work (or would not autofocus) on the new system. So, I went with Nikon - virtually any Nikkor lens made will work with the newest Nikon camera. When you've spent tens of thousands of dollars on lenses, the cost of a camera body is insignificant: you just want some assurance that you can use your existing lenses!!

Likewise with Plug-Ins. I have spent thousands of dollars on PS Plug-Ins. Why? Well, some make repetitive actions (such as repairing damaged jpgs, creased photos) quick and easy; others do things that are very difficult or impossible to do by "hand" (converting an image to only black and white - not the greyscale of B&W photos - with an acceptable loss of image quality); some are just fun (like adding crepuscular rays of light, or mist).

So. To "upgrade" to PS-CS would mean 1) a new OS (with all the attendant driver problems and incompatibilities, and weeks spent getting the system stabilized and working again); 2) at least $2000 to replace my existing Plug-Ins (IF they still exist).

Not a good deal for me, I can afford neither the time nor the money. So I bought a used PS-7 from a (poorly rated) Amazon Partner instead. I know it will be my last PS update ever - unless Adobe has an interest in retaining old customers ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Activation
"I wonder what kind of jerk-around the people at Adobe will give me when I try to do this and re-activate the software"

None, as your license (you did read the EULA didn't you?) allows for two installations, one on a dekstop and one on a notebook. As long as you don't use them at the same time you'll be fine.

2-0 out of 5 stars Bitter disappointment from Adobe
I ordered my upgrade from Amazon.com, feeling certain that Adobe would continue to provide high quality software. Yes, it's premium-priced, but it's always been worth it. So worth it that while I waited for the package to arrive, I downloaded the tryout program.

Right from the start, I had problems. (And before I go any further, let me just say that this is not a resources issue. I have more than enough RAM, disk space and power to run this puppy.) It took forever to install and a long time to boot up. Finally I got it up and running, changed a few settings, including telling it where to look for my filters and plug-ins, shut it down and rebooted. And it refused to start. Told me a file was missing. So I tried again. Same error message. I reinstalled per their instructions. Booted up. Another crash, same error message. I don't really know how a file can be missing if I've just installed it.

So I uninstalled everything, reinstalled (This is installation #3. It's going on an hour and a half now, between the download and the installation issues) and booted up. No problem. I pointed the program to my plug-ins directory, shut down and rebooted. Guess what? Yup, crashed on boot-up again, and again I got the file missing message. Long story short: Photoshop CS won't use or even recognize any of my plug-ins from PS7. None.

While it offers nothing new in the way of its own filters, the plug-in gallery is a nice touch and too long in coming. Unfortunately if I have more than about 10Mb of images open doing anything in the gallery crashes the program. I'm sure there ae a lot of wonderful features in this program, but judging by my own experiences with the try out, and the customer reviews (I should have read them before ordering!) I can tell you that the package is going back as soon as it arrives. And if Adobe doesn't get its act together, it's lost me as a customer. And I've been a devoted user since PShop3. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Filter Mania
Great plug-in for PhotoShop. There are 24 filters to work with.
The effects ranged from very outlandish like the Goo filter to the world of Frax 4D. There were many subtleties in some of the filters that took a little while to figure out. Some of the effects distorted the original photo to the point that you could not honestly say what it was which in some cases was pretty spectacular. You could take simple objects like a colored circle and make some very awesome designs. You could create a whole world of effects just using the filters and something simple or you could subtly or greatly alter a picture.

The sliders weren't quite as responsive for minute tweaks so I would just click on the numbers in the white control panel and type in what I wanted. Each filter came with a set of presets that you could expand upon. You could create your own preset then save simply by telling it to Save Preset. You could export and import presets into this program also.

Some of the filters had a bit of a learning curve to figure them out. There was a question mark in the upper right hand corner of the workspace that would take you to the Acrobat file of that specific filter and it would give you some great information on how it works. I found this very valuable for the filters that were not as straight forward.

Some of the filters like "Fluid", "Goo" & "Projector" you could make short animations with them and export them out as a Quick Time Movie Or Pict Sequence. So you could make a modification record it in one of the film strips make another modification and so on to make a mini movie. I loved this feature a lot. (I only wished that Frax 4D had this feature my absolute favorite filter followed closely by Frax Flame II.)

While the program might be a little pricey for some for a plug-in it is well worth it. I loved these filters. I spent so many hours playing with them that my mouse finger developed a callous.

4-0 out of 5 stars An expensive, fascinating niche product, which
helps to empower siginificantly your digital art work. Like many niche products it is significantly more expensive then the basic products with broad functionality, in this case the consumer imaging programs à la Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0, Photo Impact, Corel Photo Paint or others. Appropiatley used the filters of this collection give your digital art work the special, distintive "touch".

This version works flawless with Irfan View (!), Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 as well as Corel Photo Paint 9 and 11 and is part of my standard tool box. The user interface was like all other KPT tools a brilliant star in the past, in the early nineties, but isn't approbiate anymore, considering actual ergonomic and usability requirements and practices.

Decisive for me was ONE filter in the collection, Pyramid Paint; Pyramid Paint gives the pictures the touch and look of late 19th century paintings.

Summary: the filters of the KPT collection are a real empowering "differentiator" for your digital images with a significant price tag. You should really consider to buy them, if you are seriously interested in digital image enhancements. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

For people who need to begin designing right away but don't want toinvest in a complicated, fully blown CAD program, QuickCAD 8 is the way to go.The most affordable CAD program offered by Autodesk, QuickCAD still comes chockfull of features that allow users to create robust and compelling technicaldesigns and diagrams. The learning curve for using QuickCAD 8 is minimal, andits Windows-based drag-and-drop interface is so simple that users will be up andrunning in no time.

Users can take advantage of design tools like AutoSnap, which allows for quickand easy alignment of objects. AutoSnap also speeds up the drawing process byletting you use multiple snaps at once. QuickCAD users can access and senddrawings in the industry-standard Autodesk DWG design file format. New textfeatures such as in-place text editing make it easy to annotate drawings.QuickCAD also supports rich text formatting, allowing users to achieve visualconsistency between their QuickCAD drawings and other documents.

The truly valuable feature about QuickCAD 8 is its ability to provide differentinterfaces and functionality based on individual skill level. CAD beginners canlet QuickCAD's simple beginner interface guide them through the initial stagesof CAD design. As users become more comfortable with QuickCAD, they can easilytake advantage of QuickCAD's three-level interface to add new features andfunctionality.

Additional features of QuickCAD 8 include the ability to import, export, andlink files. Users can post their drawings on the Web using industry-standarddesign file formats such as DWG, DWF, and DXF. Users can also save to JPEGformat for easy posting to the Web. Users can create hyperlinks that point toother drawings and/or Web sites. Microsoft Office documents can also be embeddedin a QuickCAD drawing through the use of OLE in-place editing. More efficientfile management is provided to users so they can easily search for QuickCADfiles on their local hard drives, network drives, and FTP sites.

Overall, QuickCAD 8 is an easy-to-use, affordable alternative to larger, moresophisticated CAD programs such as AutoCAD LT 2002 and TurboCAD 7.0. Users willnot be disappointed with its above-average feature functionality set and itsintuitive three-tiered interface. For those looking for a bit more punch fromtheir CAD software package, QuickCAD 8 may not be the answer. But if you're aCAD newbie, we highly recommend this simple and straightforward softwarepackage. --Rich Ting ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars In The Road To CAD
I was interested in switching to the Computer for my design needs, but I was sure that I needed a way around AutoCAD R14 to start. But at the same time wanted to have the compatibility.
Quickcad 8 was the answer, It lets me play around with a simple interface (1 of 3 actually, depending on your skill level). Got myself started with the included and simple 2 minute tutorials and I was on my way.
With a little patience, it took me about 3 weeks to get comfortable and go about my business of interior design smoothly. If your looking at drawbacks, well, 1) I can't load 3D designs created by the more sophisticated Autodesk software, and 2) I have to load the *.dwg autocad symbol libraries one by one and save them in Quickcad format *.cad, for later use.
Overall, it's a great tool for those of us who want to keep it simple.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good value
I ended up buying this program for work. I was able to immediately sit down and begin working on floor plans, with a little experimentation.

I ran into a few stability issues, but they are few and far between. "Buggy" would be an overstatement.

I found the symbol libraries very useful. It is also very easy to create your own library by re-organizing the current symbols and/or creating your own.

In short, it may not have the power of the big, expensive products, but it is an excellent product for its price range.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's good for what I do.
I've read many reviews that seem to have issues with Autodesk or Autocad. IMHO, for less than $50 what do you expect? If you don't purchase the full versions, don't expect this stripped down one to do as much it's big brother. If you're looking for a small footprint application that will help you with design and drawings, this is the application for you. It does have a pretty steep learning curve so be patient. I just purchased the application, went through the 2 minute tutorials, and have already designed and created my next wood shop project.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice Looking Box? "You can't judge a book by it's cover"
I had to disable my Norton Software before Quickcad would even start up.I found out later that Autodesk provides a fix on their website for this. Next, after getting the program to finally run, it would give me a "floating point error" and shut down in the middle of my drawing. This has happened several times already. There were other unexplainable program lockups also. All I can say good about QuickCad so far , is the package the software came in looks nice. The help manual provides little information for those who aren't already familiar with Autocad. The website support was little help and this is a part of the email they sent me; "Safety Net is a pay-per-incident technical support program for Autodesk desktop products available to customers in the US and Canada. For US $65.00 per incident, you may call 800-225-6531 from 6 am to 5 pm, Pacific Time, Monday through Friday to receive direct technical support from Autodesk. We accept all major credit cards." So if you have problems with Autodesk products expect to pay for help. Why would I want to pay $65 for help in fixing a $44 dollar program? My suggestion is to save your money and don't buy this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Autodesk Quick CAD 8
This software appears to be suitable only for drawing floor plans, with doors, desks, washrooms, etc. The illustrations of a derailer on the carton and of mechanical and electronic components in the 59 page Getting Started manual are misleading (dishonest may be more to the point). There are no symbols for spur, helical, bevel, or worm gears; there is only a symbol for a bolt. There are no symbols for a transistor, capacitor, coil, or any other electrical component.

Both the Getting Started manual and the on screen Help instructions are poorly written - they are often incomplete, vague, and ambiguous. Telephone help consists of listening to

2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty lame software, not what I had in mind
I maintain an online retail catalog. I often take my own photos of the products. I needed image editing software that could isolate objects from their background, so that I could replace the background with something snazzy and showcase the product more professionally. This software sounded like the answer to my dreams. To listen to their propaganda, this is the simplest, most advanced solution to that "Holy Grail" of image editing tasks--cleanly removing main objects from their original settings.

The trouble is, this is a pretty cumbersome, ineffective, and even "unintelligent" program. You go through the correct motions, after slogging through the woefully inadequate online tutorial and manual, and the darn thing fairly butchers the mask/isolate process; it chops up the foreground object as if it had no clue about how to distingush white pixels from light gray. And I am using a high-end graphics tablet with a pen and skirting the edges of the image objects using Knock Out's magnify tool, with surgical precision. The bottom line: the results are poor, and I have better luck simply using the "magnetic lasso" tool that comes with Adobe Photoshop Elements, and even conventional "paint bucket" and "paint brush" tools, combined with a steady hand and the graphics tablet, yield more accurate and predictable results. Maybe one day I'll get the hang of this software, but from where I stand, this thing fell way short of its advertised function. I feel like I was somewhat duped by this rather sloppy-to-use and rather expensive software add-on program.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nightmare - but it works
I have been struggling with this thing for 4 days.

1. Book is poorly written. It talks about things you can do, without clearly explaining how. (No details, or examples given!)
2. Help is just the book - again.
3. Tutorial is cumbersome, worst one I have ever come across.
4. However, 30 days phone support is included. The problem is that the techs are not up to speed on this program either. After a phone call, I was able to use the program, in its most basic form. As far a using multiple re-dos, Corel techs didn't know anymore then I did. 5. When a knocked out image is sent back to photoshop - you don't see it as knocked out - you have to drag it into another screen. This is one of those "little" things that the instructions don't cover, that drove me crazy. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Adobe makes a great product
This is a very nice, relatively smooth upgrade, I haven't had any major issues. The new filters pallette is very nice to work with - it saves a good amount of time allowing you to apply mulitple transformations within one window.

The isues that I have had:

- it does crash in XP when using the right mouse click to "open file with"...it works much better if the program is opened first and then the file is opened ...I haven't upgraded my Mac yet, so I'm not sure if the situation with be the same on the OSX platform.

- this is very minor but the pixel aspect ratio is set for video when I open a Bitmap-TIFF ...it's a file type that the computer somehow sees as a preview for video, but it's a simple fix - just change the pixel aspect ration view back to square ...I must admit the first time it happened and my image loaded looking all squished, I got that curious dog look on my face, cocked my head to the side wondering "what the heck is this?"

- Some of my files which are 250MB working in 7.0 seem to be exploding to 400MB in CS... this is something which I haven't been able to trace or figure out just yet, but it does cause significant problems for working speed ...I only have 1.3GB of RAM which is fine for a 250MB drawing but not sufficient for a 400MB drawing. I'll have to delve deeper into the software to see if I can figure this one out.

Overall, it seems like a fine upgrade, but as with most upgrades there are some issues/surprises when you make the switch.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Upgrade for Digital Photographers
Adobe's newest release of Photoshop, is great news for digital photographers amongst others. This version now brings 16-bit suport to Photoshop. That means that we can now work with RAW camera files with full support of most Photoshop tools. The changes are more behind the scenes than they are cosmetic. Being able to customize your own keyboard shortcuts is a big timesafer. You can't go wrong with this upgrade! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Designers Need the Apps and the Price is Good
Everything is in here. All of the design apps are on two installer CDs. Any designer -- whether web or print -- has at least a few of the applications in this suite. You only need to decide if the price is right, and if your current upgrades would make the purchase worthwhile.

Buying this suite is the equivalent of a corporate employee owning Microsoft Office. Adobe's name now equals design software. Knowing Adobe's product line is simply required knowledge. Print houses will accept and produce your files without problems, and multiplatform file transfer can be completed with minimum processing time.

For me, I was using a dated version of Illustrator, PageMaker 6.5, Photoshop Elements. The additional programs and new versions of what I had made the purchase a no-brainer. I also primarily use Dreamweaver, but learning GoLive will help me as I meet with clients. Outside of InDesign and GoLive, every application here is the industry standard, and those two programs are strongly coming into their own.

To explain the virtues of each individual application is not necessary. You know the benefits of Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, and GoLive. InDesign might be new to some of the veterans, but it is beyond a replacement for the inferior PageMaker, and is a force of its own.

With the quality increase of InDesign, designers are now able to choose something besides Quark for their page layout application. Including InDesign here made the purchase for me easy. I have no reason now to piecemeal together my software base.

Each application has all of the features that they have when independently purchased.

I fully recommend "Adobe Creative Suites Premium." Designers need these apps, and so your decision is only about price and value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product - with extras!
Another fine product from Adobe. In addition to the four main software programs packaged together in the Creative Suite Premium edition (Photoshop CS, Illustrator CS, In Design CS, and GoLive CS) it also includes Adobe Acrobat Professional edition 6.0 and Version Cue. Version Cue is a library management program that can keep track of versions and allows users sharing files to check them in and out - and it's FREE. Thanks, Adobe!

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT
I have spent 9 hours in 2 days on the phone with Dell to try to install this piece of s**t. Version Cue will not install nor will photo shop. No 800 number for support from Adobe. Paid for call and recieved many voice ads for products and was told if I need support call at 'top of the hour'. Dell says the problem is in the installer. Adobe Foroums have pointed to the same but no suggestion has worked. Guess I will work on amazon to try to return it for a full refund, it was shipped defective.

1-0 out of 5 stars BE AFRAID! BE VERY AFRAID!
Windows XP users beware! You'll need lots of bug killer with this supposed "upgrade" - especially the GoLive module.

Speaking as a long time user of Adobe software (Photoshop since version 3.0) this is the most bloated and unstable iteration ever. The added goodies in Photoshop CS would be great, if my (quite adequate) Dell Workstation didn't freeze up every other minute.

Most annoying of all is a screen redraw problem most visible in GoLive CS; a problem that makes GoLive essentially unusable. If you plan to use GoLive - most especially if you have an NVidia graphics card - visit Adobe.com and look through the GoLive User Forum BEFORE you buy the CS version. LOTS of good reading there.

Adobe has (reluctantly) admitted the screen redraw problem to be a "bug" that they are "working" on... but jeez! Wouldn't that bug have been far better stomped on BEFORE Adobe CS was released onto loyal, trusting Adobe users??

To sum it up - BUYER BEWARE! Check out the Adobe Forums before you shell out your hard earned for Adobe CS, because that's where you'll get the real truth about real-world use. Download the trial version of CS if you can - maybe it will run for you... but if not, no money lost.

For now, I'm thinking it's back to my previous versions so I can at least get some work done. In fact, it's so bad - I'm beginning to consider getting a MAC! Aaaargh!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm Lovin It
I have had the new Adobe Suite for a few weeks now and I am lovin it. I have been onboard since version 4.0 and I must say that the CS upgrade of Photoshop is the most signifigant ever. I use the RAW plug in with my digital Photos now, more then anything else. RAW and 16 bit editing have changed my workflow forever. The LEns Blur filter, the Photo filters, and the awesome filter gallery are extremly useful too. I do not use Illustrator much, I think that I will use it even less now that Photoshop can type on a path, but I did play with the new 3D tool, it is pretty cool and I can't wait to implement it into my designs. I have no opinion of InDesign, I haven't had the need to use it yet. What I have read about it is that the CS version is the final nail in the coffin for Quark. Go Live is great, I appreciate the Smart Objects, and Adobe has finally cleaned up the code that Go Live writes. At first Iwas peeved that they took out Dynamic editing, but I am okay with it now. I use it side by side with my old copy of Dreamweaver so I can get the best of both worlds. Go Live is more designer friendly.
Version Cue is another can't live without addition. All of the sudden, I am organized. Well I could go on forever about why I love the new suite, Adobe did a great job with this one. If you are a designer or student buy this suite, chances are you are already planning too. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Photographer's Point of View and Adobe Photoshop CS
It's all about control. Now you have the photo editing control power in your hands with Adobe Photoshop CS.

Raw format allows photographers greater latitude in how they want their pictures to appear. Open the camera raw image files. Next, quickly apply adjustments such as exposure compensation or tonal adjustments without compressing the image or losing any of the original image data.

Shoot photos in your digital camera's raw format when image quality is the most important factor. Raw format saves all related image data with no in-camera processing.

Photoshop CS allows photographers to:

Control their raw camera images

View live histograms as they work

Create lens blur effects

Simulate photo filter effects

Easily correct exposure problems

Quickly replace color

Automatically crop and straighten photos and Create Adobe Photoshop CS panoramas

The 'Inner Core' of Adobe Photoshop CS

Most of my Photoshop CS work is done in the Browser. I single-click the photos that I need for my Photoshop CS project. Now I have a group of highlighted photos that can be used in the Browser's Automated menu.

The inner core of the Photoshop CS Browser's Automated menu contains: Batch, PDF Presentation, Contact Sheet II and Online Services. Also, Automated menu contains Photomerge, Picture Package and Web Photo Gallery. Running these automated menu tasks from the File Browser saves me a lot of time. I can avoid opening each photo file separately in Photoshop CS.

The Photoshop CS Browser has Sort capabilities that contains the Filename, Flag, Rank, Width and Height. Also, Sort capabilities that contains File Size, Resolution, File Type and Color Profile. Finally, the Photoshop Browser's Sort contains Date Created, Date Modified, Copyright and Custom. You can sort them in ascending or descending order.

Photoshop CS Photomerge and PDF Presentations

In Photomerge, I can make a collage of photos and move them in any order. Also, I can take several sections photos of a large bridge using a tripod. I then take the section photos and join them together with Photoshop CS' Photomerge. I still have to edit the new Photomerge photo for length, size and contrast.

In PDF Presentation, I can turn my photos into Acrobat PDFs and stitch them together. The fun is turning my new creation into a slideshow with various transitions. The PDF Presentation is cross-platform that can be used on a Mac and Windows computers.

The 'Outer Core' of Adobe Photoshop CS

The epiphany moment for me was using Adobe Photoshop Toolbar's one-key letter shortcuts. During an SIG (Special Interest Group) meeting on how to use Adobe Photoshop, the SIG teacher showed the club members the basic one-key letter shortcuts.

Keyboard Commands

The one-key letter shortcuts that I use quite often is M for Marquee, V for Moving objects, T for Text,  I for Eyedropper and C for Crop. There is a multitude of Toolbox one-key letter shortcuts that you can use or change.

Toolbox uses the Shift bar to get to related tools on the same pop-out menu. For example, to cycle through the Lasso, Polygonal Lasso, and Magnetic Lasso tools, hold down Shift bar and keep pressing "L" key.

Change Keyboard Commands in Photoshop CS

This means that missing Photoshop CS Menu keyboard commands can now be added. For example, I am constantly making changes to my images by changing the photos' contrast and brightness.

Now without using the computer mouse, I use the Command, Control, and C keys in unison. Like a piano chord, I can now change the contrast and brightness in my digital photographs. I use Command, Control, and letter keys for adding keyboard commands. This works well within the menus and plugin filters that I use in Photoshop CS.

Pro Reaction

Photoshop CS offers flexibility and nondestructive editing. Photoshop's Welcome screen and improved Help ease the learning curve for new users. The Help menu is changeable. I find Photoshop CS' Help menu an excellent way to learn the various functions of Photoshop program. Photoshop CS comes with a paper, hardcopy paper manual.

Con Reaction

You have to read and work with hardcopy paper manual. Photoshop CS is not compatible with older Mac OS. Photoshop CS requires Mac OS X 10.2.4 or greater.

Final Words

Photoshop is the industry standard for professional photo editing, graphic design, and digital imaging. Adobe Photoshop is considered the industry standard. Photoshop skills are required for employment in the graphic design field. 

Digital photographers will benefit from Adobe Photoshop with its strong digital-camera raw workflow. Adobe Photoshop is made for Jaguar (Mac OS 10.2) and Panther (Mac OS 10.3). ... Read more
