A month ago I was the first one at my job to get the new Adobe CS3 products (Web Suite) and I have to say that they are sweet, easy to use and made my work flow tighter; that is, despite a few bugs I’ve noticed.
In Photoshop and Illustrator they have some sweet new brushes and a nice glow called Linear Dodge (add). Photoshop has some new functions and even can export your 1996 sliced type website in XHTML. I really don’t feel its true XHTML because you still have to deal with tables, tr, td, etc., but its a Photoshop website….
Dreamweaver has a neat little new tool called Spry which allows us Non-AJAX people to add some simple and well scripted AJAX functionality to your site. Other than the fact that Spry creates a folder in your directory and names almost all of the files, Spry..something.*.*, which is highly annoying, and puts the CSS and Java files in that directory, even if you have a /script or a /styles directory, I do have to say its quite handy.
All in all, they folks at Adobe have really done a good job integrating and improving on all of there many products, despite the $1,500 price tag.
