Getting my CS3 on

Posted: May 7, 2008 in General

I finally broke down and purchased my own personal copy of Adobe Creative Suite 3. I’ve been using it at work for probably a year now, but I just thought it was a little expensive for “home” use, especially since I’m not doing any real freelance work anymore.

That said, when you really take a moment to think about it, $395 is really not a lot of money for the power of the applications you get. CS3 includes Acrobat Pro, so it’s four professional-level applications. This is one of the differences between Adobe’s Creative Suite and packages like Microsoft Office or even Apple’s iLife. I needed Photoshop the most, but I will get use out of all the applications, however if I really only wanted Photoshop I could have bought it alone. I wish I could do that with Word or iPhoto.
