Today Adobe finally let everybody else in on the details of what's coming in Creative Suite 3, the update to Photoshop and other software. There'll be not one, but six--count 'em--versions of the package, set to ship at different times this year, as well as 13 standalone apps.

As for price, CS3 packages range from about £830 to £2,300, with upgrades coming cheaper.

That's a hefty chunk of cash. So is it value for money? Photoshop can now handle some video image editing, and several applications have a more Web-friendly sheen. Is that what people want?

    To be fair, those are the prices to buy off the shelf. If you're upgrading, it's a lot cheaper: <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/0,1000000193,39286510,00.htm">CS3 Web Premium</a> costs

    It depends on what you want to do. For a very long time I thought that Photoshop 3 was all I would ever need. When I started working on websites I just had to upgrade. Today customers start asking me for video editing. So I am serously thinking about upgrading to the master suite.
