We’ll go through many of the major features of Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, After Effects and many of the other apps in the new Creative Suite. What’s the can’t miss items? The stuff you could avoid. Which app got a massive upgrade and which ones stayed the course? You’ll find out all sorts of interesting material on April 22nd.

After our demos are completed (around 9:30-10), we’ll keep things going with a party featuring all sorts of music, including a RockBand tournament for prizes. So stick around for a long and fun night!

And this is just the start of our celebration of Creative Suite 5! We’ll have more in May with Colin Smith of Photoshop Cafe coming in and the finals of Photoshop Idol. And a few other surprises to come as well!
