Adobe Contribute CS3 Windows Upgrade Note:
This is the upgrade version of Adobe Contribute CS3.
Adobe Contribute CS3 Upgrade software enables anyone to quickly and easily update existing websites and blogs. With Adobe Contribute CS3, content authors can post and publish content to multiple websites and blogs from a single application or publish directly from within Microsoft Office applications.
True WYSIWYG authoring capabilities let you edit any website in three simple steps.
Easily update web content
For professional web designers, web developers, and website administrators, ensuring that website and blog content remains fresh and current is an enormous challenge. Often this means delegating the responsibility for updating web content and blog entries to numerous contributors, which can put website integrity at risk, especially when disparate tools are used for the different tasks. With Adobe Contribute CS3, anyone can quickly and easily update multiple websites and blogs using a single application--without compromising site integrity.
Simply browse to the website that needs updating or the blog that requires a new entry, make changes to the content using Adobe Contribute CS3, and publish when finished. You can also publish content directly from Microsoft Word, Excel, or Outlook.
Use one tool for publishing to multiple websites and blogs
With Adobe Contribute CS3, anyone can update website content or create blog entries using a single application. True WYSIWYG authoring capabilities let users edit any website or blog in three simple steps, dramatically reducing editing time. Alternatively, authors can publish directly from within Microsoft Office applications in a few clicks. Just open the document that contains the content you want to post, click Publish, and select the target website or blog.
Even rich media, images, movies, and Adobe Flash (FLV) files can be easily included in any website or blog using Adobe Contribute CS3. In Edit mode, just drag the file onto the website or blog entry. Adobe Contribute CS3 automatically uploads and posts it to the site when published. Because authors edit content and add images in their actual context on the website or blog before publishing, content length and style, as well as image sizes, are right the first time. With Contribute CS3, you can embed PDF documents directly into your web page or blog entry. You can also convert your Microsoft Office documents to Adobe PDF and insert them into a web page.*
Maintain website integrity
Seamless integration between Adobe Contribute CS3 and Dreamweaver templates ensures that your website's look and feel is maintained, even when multiple authors update content across the site. Web designers and developers can create page templates with editable regions during website creation and then delegate routine content updates to business users. Because content authors can update only the areas designated by the designer or webmaster, the website always appears as the designer intended. And just like Dreamweaver, Adobe Contribute CS3 preserves code quality and formats through the editing process.
