Hey guys,

I have an Intro to Web Design I course, which requires us to purchase Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash, and Photoshop Elements. Through our discounts with the school, I can get Adobe Creative Suite 4 Web Premium for a good deal. I would like to get that as it also has Photoshop, but only if Photoshop can do what Elements can.

Our teacher finally listed the requirements and stated that we could skate by with using Adobe Creative Suite 4 Web Standard and Elements, so I'm not sure what I want to get.

So as the question stands: Can Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended to the same features that Adobe Photoshop Elements can do?

Thanks guys, I went ahead and purchased it, a much better solution than buying Creative Suite 4 Web standard + Elements. The teacher was also cool with me just using photoshop. I could've saved a few bucks since I have CS2, but I'm not worried about it. Now I just need to see how I can reimburse this through my college loan.

Just out of curiosity, can any of the programs work with video for the web? I'm looking to start doing some videos for my fire department website, so just curious if I am tackling two birds with one stone by getting Creative 4 Web Premium.

Adobe Illustrator CS4
Adobe Fireworks CS4
Adobe Contribute CS4

It looks like Soundbooth is as it sounds, and I already know what Acrobat does.

Thanks!

premier is for video, after effect is just that adding effects after - both of which are not in your collection, there are other tools about, someone should pop by soon and be able to advise you ;)

You do not necessarily have to get rid of them. You can simply reset them to the defaults and load the others only when you need them.BTW, brushes are stored in the Adobe > Adobe Photoshop > Presets > Brushes folder.

Spike: not exactly sure what you're trying to answer here since this thread really doesn't deal with brushes..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
