Software Information

Adobe Flash
Adobe Flash is a multimedia and software platform used for creating vector graphics, animation, games and rich Internet applications (RIAs) that can be viewed, played and executed in Adobe Flash Player. Flash is frequently used to serve streaming media, advertisement and interactive multimedia content on web pages and Flash-enabled software. It allows bidirectional streaming of audio and video, and it can capture mouse, keyboard, microphone and camera input.
Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop is the go-to image editing and manipulation software used by almost everyone in the industry. Photoshop excels in working with raster (bitmap) graphics and is capable of producing highly detailed compositions. While originally intended to be a photo manipulation program, Photoshop has been taken up by digital painters and design professionals in both the classroom and workplace.
Adobe InDesign
Adobe InDesign does page layouts. It allows you to produce and preview documents for magazines, both in print and online across mobile and desktop platforms. Ideally projects rendered are newspapers, posters, and other marketing material. The way InDesign works allows content producers to easily piece together the layouts for multipage magazines and documents. InDesign operates seamlessly with the rest of the Adobe suite, to enhance creative ability.
Adobe Illustrator
Adobe Illustrator is the Photoshop of vector art, also known as resolution-independent graphics. Illustrator is typically used to create logos and graphics for business cards, infographics, clipart, and icons.
