Everything I Need!

What do you like best?

The Adobe Creative Suite provides all the tools I need for design of documents, graphics, and videos. It is very efficient that there are natural connections between platforms like Photoshop and inDesign and Illustrator. One of my favorites APPS is Adobe Spark, a template, drag-and-drop, system for creating marketing video, particularly for social media. Spark provides all the tools, from styles to music backgrounds.

What do you dislike?

There is very little to dislike about the Creative Suite, but you do need training to use the applications, they are not really intended for novices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend the suite if your business requires design projects, document management, or even video creation and editing. One of my favorites APPS is Adobe Spark, a template, drag-and-drop, system for creating marketing video, particularly for social media. Spark provides all the tools, from styles to music backgrounds, all you need to provide is the idea and text to express your idea. Spark leads you through the creation and editing process and when you are finished, it compiles the file in an easily, downloaded format.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use the Creative Suite to create and edit universal PDF documents in Adobe Acrobat DC; Photoshop to create graphics and print projects; and Premiere Pro to create and edit videos for podcasts, webinars, and social media platforms. As a non-designer user of the CC Suite, it is relatively simple to comprehend the menus and using common processes, albeit unique language, to use menus and systems of the other platforms.

The suite for designers

What do you like best?

Adobe Creative Suite has all tools that you need to work with 2d images, video, and sound. The suite includes the best to work with vectorial images (Adobe Illustrator) Image Editing (Photoshop, Bridge, and Lightroom) Editorial (Indesign) Video editing (Premiere and After Effects) and so on. What I like the best is the interoperability between the different programs, they all have the same language and interface design, even if the commands are not the same you can get them as soon as you enter the main screen. The toolbars and workspaces are similar so there is some advantage there if you haven't worked with one program and you want to start learning other on the suite.

What do you dislike?

Since I started working with Adobe (version CS) I haven't found too many thinks that I dislike. The products that I use the most don't have something that I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are a designer this is a must. Forget about other programs and competitors. Adobe has the tools that you will need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making presentations is vital to communicate clients design concepts. Is the end of each face in my job. Every time that we have a meeting we show the client a "deck" that was produced in some of the Adobe programs.

All You Need

What do you like best?

The Adobe Creative Suite has software for the creation/editing of basically ANY kind of media you can think of. Photo/video editing capabilities of Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects, 3D character creation with Fuse and website development with Dreamweaver and Muse - the Creative Suite really does do it all. And, if you're a student, you can access the entire suite for less than 20 bucks a month- an absolute steal.

What do you dislike?

The option to work on collaborative projects (Premiere and After Effects) is limited to the Creative Suite Business subscription, and is not included with any other type of subscription. This makes the feature impossible to use for people who already subscribe to the individual plan.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every project that I've edited in the past 5 years or so has been completed using the Adobe Creative Suite. And because of Adobe's tight integration across software/platforms, moving between products and features is effortless.

Only tool I need

What do you like best?

I like the variety of programs and how they all work together.

What do you dislike?

Constant updates that tend to change functionality of commonly used tools. (Illustrator)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Creative Suite is the only way to go if planning to go professional with your designs. Adobe is constantly monitoring and updating the programs, so you do not have to worry about having an out of date file. Another benefit is you can be assured that you will be able to open files from other designers and no longer have to request legacy files.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The programs allow you to save your work in any commonly used formats. Can import most vector graphics from any other programs with minimal to no distortion.

The All-In-One Graphic Suite!

What do you like best?

The Adobe Creative Suite, no known as Creative Cloud is a dream come true for every graphic designer. A complete collection of tools for every need and purpose. The collection of apps, assets and stock makes life very easy. The update option is pretty easy and quick although it can slow down the system on the rare occasion. The option to discover new designs and illustrations is pretty useful as well.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike. It's been built and designed pretty well. On a very rare occasion, the updates may cause the system to slow down but otherwise it's been fine so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're job/business requires designing, Adobe is the way to go. The perfect set of tools for all purposes. It can be a bit intimidating to learn at first due to it's heavy UI and massive evolution over the years but they have a very thorough help and tutorial section and YouTube is full of helpful videos that can make learning the tools very simple and easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Graphic design, collateral design, case studies, publishing articles, stock images, online database of assets.

Adobe Creative Suite: tons of toys, hard to use

What do you like best?

I love everything that Adobe Creative Suite can do--there is SO much functionality packaged together, if you know how to use it.

What do you dislike?

All of the Adobe programs are hard to use and non-intuitive, and there is so much functionality that it becomes hard not to get lost if you are not an expert level user. There are also a lot of issues with how Adobe products work with other products. We use Adobe RoboHelp, for example, and the biggest pain point we have is getting exports into MS Word to work correctly and not have horrible formatting issues. Also, the customer support is truly terrible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There aren't really any good options for what Adobe does besides Adobe, so settle in and prepare for a lot of frustration and the need for a lot of training. Also, find message boards for help, because customer support from Adobe is very nearly worthless.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Creative Suite for several things, but the biggest is using Captivate and RoboHelp for online help for our application. The benefits are that we can do it--create and update decent Help.
