Highly efficient integration
Work more productively than ever thanks to the exceptional integration of the tools in Master Collection.

Import layered Photoshop® files into Illustrator®, InDesign®, Fireworks®, Flash, After Effects®, Adobe Premiere® Pro, and Encore®, or copy and paste from Photoshop to Dreamweaver®. Export InDesign files as XHTML to jump-start web designs in Dreamweaver. Paint video layers in Photoshop CS3 Extended, and then export to a variety of video formats, including FLV, to incorporate into a website or an After Effects or Adobe Premiere Pro project. And much more.
Easy collaboration between designers and developers
Produce rich, engaging content that can be freely deployed on the web and on a wide variety of mobile and other devices. Quickly copy motion to ActionScript™ 3.0 language to hand off to a developer working with Flash, or use scripts to automate tasks across components of the software. Master Collection offers robust features for producing and deploying cutting-edge content as well as improving efficiencies between designers and developers.
