|Adobe Freehand Training Courses|
Adobe Freehand was a sophisticated graphic creation tool. It was used to create images, logos and text effects for use in publishing or on the web. However, when Adobe bought Macromedia, they discontinued Freehand in favour of Adobe Illustrator CS3.
This from Adobe's website:
"No updates to FreeHand have been made for over four years, and Adobe has no plans to initiate development to add new features or to upport Intel-based Macs and Windows Vista.
To support customer workflows, we will continue to sell FreeHand and offer technical and customer support in accordance with our policies.
While we recognize FreeHand has a loyal customer base, we encourage users to migrate to the new Adobe Illustrator CS3 which supports both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs and Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Illustrator CS3 offers powerful new features, including functionality designed to appeal to FreeHand users such as tight integration with Adobe Flash CS3 Professional, sophisticated color controls, an intuitive Eraser tool, easier Path editing, and more responsive performance..."
