Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection
Take your creativity to the next level with Adobe's comprehensive suite

It's no secret that Adobe make some of the best design tools in the world. It's also no secret that they can be very expensive, but if you're planning on buying most of the packages anyway then it may be worth opting for the CS6 Master Collection: you could save up to 60% compared to the cost of buying the individual packages.

What's included? The suite bundles Photoshop CS6 Extended, Illustrator CS6, InDesign CS6, Acrobat X Pro, Flash Professional CS6, Flash Builder 4.6 Premium Edition, Dreamweaver CS6, Fireworks CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, Adobe Audition CS6, SpeedGrade CS6, Prelude CS6, Encore CS6, Bridge CS6 and Media Encoder CS6.

And what's new? InDesign, Dreamweaver and other tools have a new focus on making sure your designs look just as good on any device: smartphone, tablet, PC and more. Photoshop has powerful content-aware technologies, new effects, even video editing support. But for really professional video editing just launch Adobe Premiere Pro, though: there's now amazing multicam editing, dynamic trimming tools and more powerful video stabilisation.

And although the list of entirely new features can be a little on the short side, for some apps at least, there's still a lengthy list of enhancements and improvements. Many interfaces have been optimised to improve usability and workflow, for instance (Illustrator has seen more than 40 tweaks all on its own). Enhanced memory management means Fireworks can support files up to 4x larger on 64-bit Windows systems. And just about every application here sees a significant performance boost through the Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine and Performance Systems, native 64-bit support and a host of code optimisations.

If there's a problem here, it's that bundling all these applications into a single suite makes for an enormous download, well over 6GB in size. The file you'll download here is Adobe's Download Manager, though, and that can pause and restart the download to suit your needs. Or, if you only want to check out a few of the main applications, then you can always download those separately: most have 30-day trial editions available.

Verdict:

The Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection is a hugely comprehensive set of some of the best design tools around. And while it's not cheap, if you're planning to buy most of them anyway then it could help to save you some cash.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
