Adobe is hoping to do two things with its brand-new Creative Suite 2. First, all of the suite’s applications—GoLive, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop—are getting major upgrades, with promising interface tweaks and new tools for handling the latest graphics technologies. Second, Adobe is attempting to make CS more of a suite, integrating the apps with each other more tightly and providing a new, centralized tool—the Bridge—for managing your projects. (Match that, Quark and Macromedia.) We got an early look at the new suite, and here’s what we saw.
