Pros: THis allows us to send camera ready ads to the news paper. THis allows for 100% accuracy and not relying on people at the paper to complete our ad and potentially report incorrect information. Previously we sent individual modules and they had to be hand delivered and created at the paper. This allows for ad creation to be done in house and loaded into the cloud

Cons: It's complex if you don't have formal training. Can create issues because of the abundance of "buttons" and options. It's extremely complex. But I guess too many features isn't necessarily bad.

Pros: This is the industry standard! No matter what industry, a designer of any kind can make use of this software. All pieces of the suite integrate well, and the addition of CC libraries is a game changer.

Cons: Price! The price can be hard to handle as Adobe software is expensive. It's sad to see young creative professionals being priced out of a platform that is pretty much a requirement in the industry these days.

Pros: The Adobe suite has everything you need to create graphics, edit graphics, create page layouts and more. It is the industry standard for graphic and page designers.

Cons: The software now requires an annual subscription vs. buying the suite or apps and then upgrading as desired. Though you always have access to the latest software updates, you are locked into a monthly or annual fee.

I use Adobe suite at my current position on a daily basis.

Pros: I enjoy being able to edit and merge PDFs; additionally, I enjoy being able to markup various documents and marketing projects.

Cons: When I make a multitude of markups I notice it is possible to overlook some. Also, being able to print documents with or without comments can be confusing. But believe me: Adobe Suite is a must in today's world!

Adobe Publishing Suite is the most complete set of applications for publishing online or offline.

Pros: The package contains everything you can desire for your publishing needs, from editing text to images and video, to setting it up on web or traditional media, publishing is very easy with this suite.

Pros: It was amazingly simple to download and begin using. I have had some difficulties in accessing epub and other media type files. I am now able to open files that I previously was unable to access. Makes it easy for users with limited design talent/experience to create high-quality, professional-looking publications online.

Cons: I think it is a fair product design choice, the software is a little bit pricey. However, hiring graphic designer to make a publication for you would cost a lot more!!

Overall: Excellent results for less money than hiring a designer

Very helpful software if you have some Adobe skill background.

Pros: I use this on a daily basis and i cannot fault the simplicity and functional ease of using it. If you thought Adobe was brilliant for working with on computers, it's even better for working with to create mobile device applications.

Cons: Whilst this is an absolutely brilliant product, the cost is still rather high and could be a little more competitive.

Useful if you only have designers, but there are better solutions out there for the work.

Pros: If you're publishing information and currently build it for print in InDesign, Digital Publishing Suite can be a good option to push out a digital version easily. It's going to be somewhat limited features-wise, but you can get it done.

Cons: The amount of work required to convert your document to digital, if funneled into another resource, could get you a vastly better product for a much larger audience.

Software with a ton of features that you will have to research well to take advantage of.

It is a customizable program and if you know how to use it, you can use it to your advantage and create professional looking designs.

Overall: There is a learning curve - it is difficult to learn how to use but when you know how to use it, it is worth it.

Cons: Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is more difficult to learn than your average Microsoft or online design website. However, the benefits of taking the time to understand and research these skills is worth while.

Pros: What I like most about Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is how the software allows for transforming a read-only experience to interactive text, publications, and documents for a modern reading experience for more content or connecting the reader or viewer to more information or to products. Overall incredibly useful tool for online/tablet publishing.

Cons: What I like least is, as with Adobe products sometimes, is the fact that there is a learning curve when starting out with it, and loading and checking can be a bit tedious sometimes.

Pros: Adobe Digital Publishing Suite makes publishing mobile content for apps very easily, especially for the newsletters and other publications I work on.

Cons: Adobe Digital Publishing Suite can be quite expensive, and its subscription fees are somewhat bothersome. Additionally, I prefer other solutions for further development of mobile engagement, since the tools included in Adobe Digital Publishing Suite aren't as useful as dedicated analytics tools.
