The Dream Team

Adobe Creative Suite 2 is made up of several components, each with its own set of tools that excel at specific tasks. To get a better understanding of what's included in Adobe Creative Suite 2, let's discuss each of the components and what its primary function is.

Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Adobe ImageReady CS2

Photoshop is a pixel-based program (we'll talk more about this in Chapter 2) that excels at working with photographs and illustrations with painterly effects. Most noted for its capability to manipulate photos (see Figure 1.3), it is also used for designing web graphics. Although most people don't know it, Adobe ImageReady is a part of Photoshop that is geared specifically to web graphics. It's more of a production tool that lets you specify optimizations, rollovers, animations, and more. Competitors to Photoshop have come and gone, but Macromedia Fireworks is similar in many ways to ImageReady.
