Adobe is hosting a CS5 launch event on Monday (Apr 12) at 11am EST/8am PST. Personally, I’m very excited for this event. If you haven’t signed up yet, hurry! Adobe’s team will be sharing a first look at the top five killer features of CS5 for design, web, video, and photography. I have five CS5 tshirts (from Adobe) to giveaway.

Note: this contest is for Canadian participants only (sorry for the international readers).

Update: the winners are 36, 49, 69, 77 and 93.

    Adobe Fireworks – “Pixel-perfect precision” is my favorite new feature, should of been around ages ago, and im surprised there isnt more interest in it from the visitors of this site.

    Its a web designers dream come true.

    My favourite feature is that I will turn into a wee little young un Wolverine that’s super excited about Adobe Premier :P

    Can’t wait.

    Honestly though the CMS integration with Dreamweaver looks pretty sweet.

    I’m loving the content aware fill. I can’t tell you how many times that would come in handy. No more clone/healing spot areas!

    I also like the CS review feature. That would be great in our workgroup!

    while content-aware fill truly blows my mind, since i do a lot of low-light long exposures my favourite CS5 featured introduced during the launch event is noise reduction in Photoshop CS5.

    I was amazed at the content aware fill! I am also super thrilled that everything is going to be 64-bit, it will make my life a lot easier :)

    Unfortunately, I missed the event but I did heard from a friend about the Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop. It’s truly amazing!

    Well I’m very excited about the Flash CS5 Packager for iPhone Apps. Guess this was a case of the mountain going to Muhammad because Muhammad was too lazy to go to the mountain. Well done adobe!

    Recently I became a big fan of Joomla, I’m really happy to hear that new Dreamweaver can be intergrated with CMS. I can’t wait to try CS5!!!

    Perspective in Illustrator makes me giddy, as well as content-aware fill.

    The new Photoshop CS5 Content Aware fill is breathtaking.

    As for Dreamweaver, I am excited about being able to code WordPress themes easier (locally).
