Adobe CS5 is a ramped up collection of video editing, web development and graphic design applications of Adobe Systems. It consists of applications such as Photoshop CS5, Acrobat, Flash CS5, Illustrator CS5, InDesign CS5 which are based upon technologies like PostScript, PDF, and Flash.

However, there is a flipside to it. It is just the official unveiling or in the words of Adobe “Launch” day for the public. But the software won’t be available for the public to buy that very day. No release date has been announced as yet. Market experts are skeptical about the release anytime sooner than the late 2010.

This is a common mistake when you need to select an object that has a single-colored background, such as the racecar shown in Figure A. The easiest way to select the racecar is to select the white area, and then inverse the selection. However, if you select the white background, forget to inverse the selection, and then make an alpha channel based on your selection, the selected area will still display as white in the alpha channel, as shown in Figure B—it’s just not the selection you wanted.

Tip: Check your selection before you make an alpha channel. If you notice the marching ants selection around your image’s perimeter, more…
