Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Adobe Creative Suite 4 Now Shipping

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe announced that Creative Suite 4, its bundle of professional creative applications including Photoshop CS4, InDesign CS4, and Illustrator CS4, is now shipping. (For a look at what's new in this massive revision, see "Adobe Announces Vast Creative Suite 4," 2008-09-23. I also wrote about some of the smaller improvements to the suite in my latest Seattle Times column: "Adobe's big, new Creative Suite helpful in many ways," 2008-10-11.) I would imagine that graphic designers, video producers, and publishers of all stripes are submitting requisition forms to their bosses.

When I say "massive," I don't just mean the number of features rolled into the applications; there are a lot of applications offered in six different bundled configurations. Here's the rundown:

  • The Design Premium includes InDesign CS4, Photoshop CS4 Extended, Illustrator CS4, Flash CS4 Professional, Dreamweaver CS4, Fireworks CS4, and Acrobat 9 Pro for $1,799 new. (Upgrade pricing varies.)
  • The Design Standard includes InDesign CS4, Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4, and Acrobat 9 Pro for $1,399 new. (Upgrade pricing varies.)
  • The Web Premium includes Dreamweaver CS4, Flash CS4 Professional, Photoshop CS4 Extended, Illustrator CS4, Fireworks CS4, Acrobat 9 Pro, Soundbooth CS4, and Contribute CS4 for $1,699 new. (Upgrade pricing varies.)
  • The Web Standard includes Dreamweaver CS4, Flash CS4 Professional, Fireworks CS4, and Contribute CS4 for $999 new. (Upgrade pricing varies.)
  • The Production Premium includes Photoshop CS4 Extended, Illustrator CS4, Flash CS4 Professional, After Effects CS4, Premiere Pro CS4, Soundbooth CS4, OnLocation CS4, and Encore CS4 for $1,699 new. (Upgrade pricing varies.)
  • The Master Collection includes everything (except Photoshop CS4, since Photoshop CS4 Extended is part of the lineup) for $2,499 new. (Upgrade pricing varies.)

Each suite also includes Bridge CS4, Device Central CS4, and Version Cue CS4; the Production Premium and Master Collection also include Dynamic Link.

Additionally, each major application is available for purchase without buying a suite.
