June 8, 2007 -- Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced the immediate availability of Adobe GoLive 9 software for professional designers who want to build web design skills. This intuitive new version empowers non-code savvy design professionals to create modern, CSS-compliant websites using a visual interface and design techniques familiar to anyone who knows Adobe InDesign CS3 software and print layout. Designers can easily incorporate assets from other Adobe products by copying and pasting formatted content from InDesign layouts and by embedding native Photoshop, Illustrator, and Adobe PDF files as smart objects. With GoLive 9, designers can master the basics of web design and then grow into building more sophisticated web experiences using the industry-leading tools in Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 software.
Learn Quickly with an Easy-to-Use Interface
GoLive 9 offers new features to help make the web more accessible to designers who don’t have a background in HTML or other web technologies. A visual CSS layout window allows designers to create standards-compliant code that renders faithfully on the latest browsers. Users can select, edit, and create objects using familiar tools and techniques and automatically create CSS-based text styles using character and style settings similar to those in InDesign.
Work with Other Adobe Applications
GoLive 9 continues to integrate closely with other Adobe graphics applications. Designers can drag and drop content directly from InDesign into GoLive, which automatically translates most existing character and paragraph styles into CSS. Common color settings are maintained from other applications. Native Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Adobe PDF files can be placed into GoLive as Smart Objects, which can be cropped and resized on-the-fly.
Easily Manage Sites
GoLive 9 helps users manage their websites visually, including tracking, maintaining, and updating links and files, using an intuitive new Site Window that works likeAdobe Bridge. Designers can also make changes offline to multiple pages of a site and synchronize them to the web server, uploading only files that have been modified since the last update. GoLive supports the latest hardware and operating systems, including Intel and PowerPC-based Macs running Mac OS X, v. 10.4.8 or PCs running Microsoft Windows Vista™ or Windows XP.
Pricing and Availability
Adobe GoLive 9 is now available for purchase as an electronic software download (ESD) from the Adobe store at www.adobe.com for US$399. The upgrade from GoLive 6.0, CS or CS2 is US$169.
