  • Starting out..what to get..CS Premium or CS Standard?

    Hi folks. I was just wondering for someone starting out in graphic design (print), would it be better to get the CS suite Premium (with GoLive and Acrobat), or would the Standard suite (without GoLive and Acrobat) suffice? I just wanted to start off first learning print before getting into the web too much. Still, I also wonder if getting the Premium would be better in the long run. I'm also trying to save money if I can (lol). Any thoughts or opinions on this would be most welcome.
    Thank you all for your time.

    Sincerely,
    Joe

    Get the Premium.
    Having Acrobat is DEFINITELY worth it.

    PrintDriver is a large format digital print dude. His advice/opinions may not apply to the 4color/offset/web world of printing

          I gave up on both regular television and cable television years ago. I have no interest in spectator sports, so that's not an issue for me. It likely won't fit with what you're after, but for me a fiber...

          Interpolating an image is still interpolating an image. You can't increase the resolution. You can make PHotoshop guess what the missing pixels are, but it's all still a guess....

          As sort of a side project, I design typefaces and compile them into commercial fonts. It's a whole lot of work that, when done right, takes months and requires designing, drawing, kerning and hinting...
