  • 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.

    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'm not sure I fully understand the assertions made in that post, but for certain, changing the Document Color Mode in Illustrator doesn't change the colors of anything that's already on the artboard....

          Just a reminder here that this post by Key was made over 13 years ago, during the boom before the bust.
          Times (and prices) have changed a lot in that time.

          About the worst thing you can do with Illustrator is use the Color Mode to change stuff after starting your design.
          ALWAYS select your document color mode before you begin using Illustrator. Changing...

          LOL. Yeah. Sure you can.
          I've tried everything out there, including this one, and they are all the same.
