It was only a few months ago that Adobe began shipping the latest versions of its popular Creative Suite video, sound, and graphics editing tools package. Creative Suite 3 is the 3rd generation compilation of tools designed by Adobe Systems, Inc. or tools acquired by it and integrated into its already powerful set of software.

Now Adobe has begun shipping the final set of Creative Suite 3 packages to bring the CS3 launch to a close with the Production Premium CS3 and Master Suite CS3 packages which include an extensive list of software.
