Adobe Designers Find Their Muse
Adobe has announced the immediate availability of two new products, including a software solution that enables designers to create websites without writing code.
Previously available as a public beta, Adobe Muse makes planning, designing and publishing original HTML pages as easy as creating layouts for print. With master pages, built-in tools for interactivity, and access to more than 400 Web fonts served by the Adobe Typekit service, Adobe Muse makes it easy to produce distinctive, professional websites.
Adobe Muse is available as a standalone subscription or as part of Adobe Creative Cloud membership, the second new offering that is also immediately available. Creative Cloud provides designers and developers access to innovative storage services, publishing services and essential creative applications including the entire award-winning Adobe Creative Suite 6 product line released earlier in the week.
Adobe Muse has some of the same features and keyboard shortcuts found in other software such as Adobe InDesign. Muse allows designers to easily add engaging, interactive elements such as slide shows and embed content from sources such as Google Maps and Facebook.
Users can preview and test functionality of a website within Adobe Muse or create a temporary site and share the URL with clients for review. When the site is ready to go live, designers can either host it using a third-party solution or use Adobe’s flexible all-in-one hosting service. An Adobe Muse one-year subscription or Creative Cloud membership also includes some site hosting.
Adobe Muse is available for individuals at $14.99 per month with an annual subscription and $24.99 per month for a month-to-month subscription. Visit Adobe for more information about Muse.
Adobe Creative Cloud memberships for individuals are $49.99 per month based on annual membership and $74.99 per month for a month-to-month membership. A special introductory offer of $29.99 per month for CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS5.5 individual customers is also available. Visit Adobe for more information about Creative Cloud.
