Adobe unleashes Creative Suite 4 trial downloads

By on November 18, 2008, 7:07 AM
Right on schedule, Adobe released this week the 30-day trial downloads for all the products that compose its Creative Suite 4. The popular graphic design and web development applications Photoshop and Dreamweaver have been brought up to date with UI and speed enhancements in this new version.

The entire suite now sports a tabbed interface that should ease transition between CS4 applications running concurrently. Photoshop in particular gets some critical performance boosts in the form of true 64-bit compatibility and GPU acceleration to enable smoother panning and zooming.

With over a dozen major programs covering needs from web and print designers and video production, you can make your pick on what program to download (after registering on Adobe's site). The Illustrator trial weights about 1GB, Photoshop goes over 800MB, while Flash is closer to 900MB. A personal favorite, Adobe Fireworks is much lighter at around 443MB as well as Dreamweaver that is ~335MB.
