Affection for my Master Collection

I finally landed my copy of Adobe's Master Collection which launched in late September, and I can't wait to get started! Yahooie. I'm mainly looking forward to using all the new jammin' functions in Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom 2.1 (Lightroom doesn't come with Master Collection), but Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master Collection comes with a ton of programs: InDesign CS4Photoshop CS4 Extended Illustrator CS4 Acrobat 9 Pro Flash CS4 Professional Dreamweaver CS4 Fireworks CS4 Contribute CS4 After Effects CS4 Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 Soundbooth CS4 Adobe OnLocation CS4 Encore CS4 Adobe Bridge CS4Adobe Device Central CS4 Dynamic Link Version Cue CS4 From video to stills, graphics to design, audio to html, the Master Collection is everything a multi-media person could desire. I use Dreamweaver CS3 since moving over from GoLive CS2, but lookin' forward to Dreamweaver CS4 for new updated web design. Photoshop CS4 Extended also has a new 3D object painting which sounds like a fantastic feature - who says we need to shoot all product colors from here out?! There's many new aspects of Bridge and Camera Raw that simplify Photoshop functions, allowing you to get a ton of work done before even opening and processing the file. There's a ton to go through, but I hope to add updates over the next few months on all the new cool features. The main programs I'll start with are Photoshop CS4, Bridge CS4, Dreamweaver CS4, and Indesign CS4. Stay tuned groovy photo dudes and dudettes.
