With the release of Adobe's Creative Suite 4, the integration that Web developers and graphic designers had once only dreamed about continues to become a reality. The Web Collection Revealed Premium Edition is the first book on the market to feature Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash, and Adobe Photoshop all together in the same text. Readers gain practical experience with the software as they work through end-of-chapter learning projects and step-by-step tutorials.
