I will be reviewing these products. However, I have reviewed Photoshop CS5 Extended previously. The version of Photoshop contained in this suite is the standard version and not the extended one. Just ignore the discussions of 3D features in my review. If you are not sure of what is contained in the various Photoshop family of products, click on family for a comparison. I, also, reviewed Acrobat X Pro previously. Presenter 7 was a new program for me. Once I played with it for a few days, I found how useful, easy, and flexible it is. For the review, click on Presenter 7. Another program I had not reviewed previously was Captivate. I was incredibly impressed with Captivate 5 and the breadth of learning materials it could produce as well as its authoring tools. For a review, click on Captivate 5.
