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. So everyone let’s keep our fingers crossed because CS5 is about to arrive and when it does, it will be here to stay.
