Can’t “Code It and Load It?” Adobe introduces some new tools to make your life a bit easier.
OK, it’s not going to be a plug and play, no brainer. But if Design is your thing and the visual images and look is what you have control of, this is great news for you. And it’s all part of a bigger picture with the introduction of the Adobe Creative Cloud.
Subscription based, you may want to factor that in to your new fiscal budget.
New Software Enables Designers to Publish Professional HTML5 Websites without Writing Code
SAN JOSE, Calif. — May 11, 2012 — Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the immediate availability of Adobe® Muse™ software that enables designers to create websites without writing code. Previously available as a public beta, Adobe Muse makes planning, designing and publishing original HTML pages as easy as creating layouts for print. With master pages, built-in tools for interactivity, and access to more than 400 Web fonts served by the Adobe Typekit™ service, Adobe Muse makes it easy to produce distinctive, professional websites.
Adobe Muse is available as a standalone subscription or as part of Adobe Creative Cloud™ membership, a new offering also available today that provides creatives access to innovative storage services, publishing services and essential creative applications, including the entire award-winning Adobe Creative Suite® 6 product line (see separate release).
Adobe Muse will feel immediately familiar as it has some of the same features and keyboard shortcuts found in other software, like Adobe InDesign®. Adobe Muse allows designers to easily add engaging, interactive elements such as slide shows and embed content from sources such as Google Maps and Facebook**. Users can preview and test functionality of a website within Adobe Muse or create a temporary site and share the URL with clients for review. When the site is ready to go live, designers can either host it using a third-party solution or use Adobe’s flexible all-in-one hosting service. An Adobe Muse one-year subscription or Creative Cloud membership also includes some site hosting.
PLUS: you can now share all on the Adobe Creative Cloud!
