Adobe Systems Inc. is offering two newly upgraded web design programs to education customers at an unbeatable price. Adobe LiveMotion 2.0 and Adobe GoLive 6.0 normally sell for $399 each, but schools can buy these two products bundled together for $89.99.
With Adobe LiveMotion 2.0, teachers and students can design animated Macromedia Flash and QuickTime content for the web presentations, educational games, and other projects quickly and easily. LiveMotion enables users to animate objects, pictures, and designs without writing complicated code. The latest version of LiveMotion is now more compatible with Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator than ever before; users simply drag and drop items created in Photoshop or Illustrator into LiveMotion to open the file. Files created in LiveMotion also work seamlessly with Adobe’s other products, GoLive and After Effects.
Changes to Adobe GoLive, which is used to build web sites, allow designers to produce web sites that can be accessed by a variety of wireless devices. The software allows users to preview the page as it would appear on a wide variety of wireless devices, including Nokia and i-mode telephones. In addition, GoLive 6.0 offers the Web Workgroup Server, a web site management tool that allows builders to change, share, and manage files. The new Site Diagram feature allows web designers to create an easily sharable or printable map of the web site links between its various pages.
