News on Adobe CS5

Word has been circulating that Adobe plans to announce version 5 of its Creative Suite sometime this year, and now they’re counting down to a launch date just over 12 days from now. On Monday, April 12 at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT, Adobe is hosting an online event to unveil the new features of Photoshop, InDesign, Flash and other tools. Go to Adobe’s special website to register for the event and catch a few video sneak previews.

Stay tuned to for a full review of the new Creative Suite products by our veteran technology columnist, Stephen Beale. (Sign up for HOW’s free e-mail newsletter to learn when the review is posted after the suite debuts.)

And you can take a look at CS5 during a special session on Tuesday, June 8 at the HOW Conference in Denver, plus catch sessions on Photoshop, InDesign, Flash and more.

(Guess that means we here at HOW need to upgrade, eh?)
