  • 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

          Changing the color mode using File >Document color mode is what I was talking about
          It does mess with color values and certainly messes with Black. If you go from an RGB file with the Black swatch...

          I think what's off balance with the Royal Bank logo is the kerning. It's all over the place, especially between the 'Y' and the 'A'.

          To the OP: Looking closer at your other logos, kerning...

          PD, thanks for the link. Will read up on SM vs TM.

          Regarding the logos -- no, I'm not opposed to the first, offsetting the "P." Curiously, I don't think it's so bad when I mock...

          Here's the thing with some clients. They find fonts. Sometimes in weird and sometimes not so savory places.

          As well as font sites.
          There are also lots of sites related to car wrap art that have ''cool stuff.''
