Chapter 10. Muse, Meet the Adobe Creative Suite

In the previous chapter we used Muse's built-in widgets to add a slideshow to our pages. If you use some of Adobe's other products, such as Photoshop, you will be pleased to know that Muse is tightly integrated with other products in the Adobe Creative Suite. Adobe Muse is not part of the Adobe Creative Suite® 6 release, but it is available as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud membership. However, even if you're using older versions of Photoshop and Fireworks, Muse will work well with the files you create using those programs.

In this chapter, we'll look at how we can use Photoshop or Fireworks to create graphics and easily bring them into your Muse-created websites. We will learn how to:

  • Create and add a Photoshop button

  • Add Photoshop or Fireworks-based graphics

  • Edit images with Photoshop or Fireworks using Edit Original
