CS4 at InDesign Users Group Meeting

I attended an Adobe InDesign Users Group meeting at FIT (They'll be switching over to SVA’s new theater space for the next meeting in February and they’ll be called the Adobe Creative Suite Users Group) and saw a fantastic demonstration of CS4’s new and improved capabilities. InDesign files exported to interactive Flash files, Photoshop layouts exported to Fireworks and then to CSS web pages, and a much more simple yet robust interface for Flash are some of the highlights. Though you missed it, there are hundreds of free online tutorials covering the same ground on Adobe TV. I highly recommend the upgrade. Oh, and text in Flash is now searchable with Google and Yahoo.
