Some thoughts about FreeHand

Richard Hubbard, an avid supporter of FreeHand, maintains a blog on FreeHand. In the past, Richard has interviewed myself and some folks from Adobe as well. Today, Richard posted an interview with myself and also one with Terry Hemphill (Adobe Illustrator Product Marketing Manager). It's a good read and offers some good information and advice.

Interesting read. Nothing really new to learn really. Other than its hopefull that CS4 might have real Freehand features added.

The more I evaluate Illustrator and InDesign the more I think Adobe should offer an upgrade path to InDesign for Freehand users. I am noticing that I do more page layout than illustration and InDesign is suiting me more than Illustrator. Well more so that InDesign feels more like Freehand. I wonder if Adobe has thought about this?

I don't agree with the comment that illustration and page layout tools should be separated though. In essense page layout and illustration tools are vector in nature. Its not like dividing Photoshop and Illustrator as there is a fundamental difference there. But that mindset is what separates Freehand users from Illustrator/InDesign users I guess. One great tool can in fact do both page layout and illustration. And I might add do it with considerably less overhead then the often bloated Illustrator on its own.

Wow look at beligerent me going off on a tangent there :) Sorry.

Page layout and illustration have things in common. But, can you make a complex book in freehand? As the basis of your newspaper? Ummm don't think so. It's an illustration app with page layout features that Illustrator should have, but the two paradigms ar rightfully different.

Hi all, for me I work in a Studio where work or lets say ads need to be sent all around the world to different magazines and newspapers which means different color spaces, because of that Indesign suites me better because it gives me the freedom of controlling the color profiles of each placed file, and it makes me feel more comfortable noticing that my page covers both RGB and CMYK spaces at the same time.
Also Indesign capabilities in Styling Typography gives me to much freedom in creativity.
So for me watching Indesign taking large steps with every release ending with the powerful layer effects from photoshop (drop shadow, glow, etc...) and the Appeareance capabilities from illustrator to give me more control on my shapes strokes and fills.

I think Indesign now is a must for every designer who wants to achieve both creativity and integrity.

and although I was a huge fan of illustrator in the past and still am, but for page layouts Indesign is the best and I think the guys at Adobe know why they have all these softwares floating

Sorry I know that was to much but I just loved to give my opinion.
