Chapter 1. Pulling Together Tools and Materials > Desperately Seeking Software

Desperately Seeking Software

Throughout this book, we cover many different types of software, but this section gives you a quick‐and‐dirty list of what you should consider. Software is referred to as industry standard when it's the preferred package for a particular function amongst professionals. If you're concerned about building a resume, use industry‐standard software whenever possible. It can give you a skill set that is valuable to the widest number of employers. If you don't intend to pursue a career or to work with other professionals, industry‐standard software is less of an issue for you.

When you're looking for Web and graphic design software, check out bundled packages. Adobe has packages that include everything you need — graphics, Web, and multimedia software. Buying a bundle can save you a bundle of money because the price of the bundle ends up being less than the prices of buying each piece of software individually. On the other hand, if you choose to use software from different companies, the bundled software might not work for you.
