InDesign
Adobe describes InDesign as "versatile desktop publishing application that gives you pixel-perfect control over design and typography". InDesign is essentially a page layout application used for graphic rich documents like collaterals, catalogs, flyers, post cards, business cards etc. It simplifies typesetting operations as it is enriched with powerful text tools and style sheets which are easy to use.

InDesign enables the typesetter to flip the text resulting in changed reading directions which come in handy especially for languages like Hebrew, Arabic and Urdu. This has the advantage of making the final document look exactly like the original irrespective of the changes in direction of the text. Indesign used with Trados plug-in doubles the advantage, where the text can be exported from InDesign to a Trados friendly format and the same when re-imported into InDesign after processing, can be used to create a foreign language version of the same layout. This leads to cutting down in cost and time for the customer.

Photoshop is the most often used software for manipulating complex, bitmapped graphics. It helps is creating visually powerful images. Photoshop files have the capability to store varied information and also text layers.

Illustrator

Dream viewer's FTP features enables the user to upload files.

Flash
Adobe Flash is used for streaming animation for web pages. It is the most preferred tool of web publishers as it loads fast on the screen.
