The sixth version of Adobe Creative Suite is here and with it comes the brand sparkling new Dreamweaver CS6, which you can test drive free for 30 days with this free trial.
As you may know Dreamweaver is the leading software in web design and provides the perfect platform for making and editing HTML sites and mobile applications for mobile devices. As with any Creative Suite upgrade from Adobe, there are a number of new and well thought out features with Dreamweaver CS6.
The new software uses a Fluid Grid Layout allowing for users to create a cross platform and cross browser web design through CSS3. Designers can now easily create projects using industry standard code that can be used on a wide range of devices. Essentially Adobe Dreamweaver makes complex design easy and the way it’s laid out prevents you getting dragged down with lots of coding by offering you the chance to create solutions in a visual manner.
Those looking to design mobile phone apps will also be delighted with the enhanced jQuery Mobile Support the new Dreamweaver provides. It’s now easier than ever to build native apps for Android and iOS and this new software even has emulators for checking designs.
This is one significant step for Adobe and Dreamweaver as the world moves into an ever more mobile position. With screen sizes being continuingly changed and altered and ratios being constantly tampered with, this flexibility is a necessity.
The new Dreamweaver software allows users to design, develop and create sites and mobile apps and comes with more efficient FTP transfers and even better image editing than ever before. All of this allows you to streamline productivity, save time and increase performance.
This is of prime importance as file sizes get bigger and networks faster. Dreamweaver reflects that with these changes. This results in a marked improvement on Dreamweaver CS5 and will be welcomed by many who will be pondering whether to make the leap from CS5 to CS6.
One of the great things about Dreamweaver is that all designs can be previewed with the Live View feature and in the Multiscreen Preview panel, which allows you to see what the design looks like in a range of media.
Looking to develop complex e-commerce solutions with ease, though don’t want to write any server side code? Well you can do this with Adobe Business Catalyst. It allows you to build and host free trial sites. It is a separate bundle but it can really make the whole area a lot faster and easier.
What’s been said?
Across review sites and magazines, Dreamweaver has received a lot of acclaim. The ease of use is apparent in the media field with changes to the fonts and tools for creating CSS transitions increasingly lauded.
The jQuery panel also has been acclaimed for making the creation of mobile sites a lot easier and the faster FTP has been also welcomed. There has been a certain negative feel around weak support of HTML5. However, overall the new Dreamweaver CS5 has received a lot of support and at the very least is worth a try.
