Life is Suite

Now that more people than ever have access to all the applications in the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection through the Adobe Creative Cloud, it’s important to learn which application is best for a particular, well, application. Even though you could build a magazine layout in Photoshop, we highly recommend that you use InDesign instead. Dave Cross takes a look at not only when to use Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, but also how to efficiently and effectively use them together.
