Adobe will be showcasing the new features in Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 at an event in London on May 11, 2011.

Adobe worldwide evangelists Terry White, Jason Levine, Greg Rewis and Serge Jespers will all be demonstrating top new features and their individual tips and tricks that will enable creatives to utilise the full power of the new Creative Suite.

Adobe says that the workshop will be especially valuable to those that are on early Creative Suite versions such as CS3 or CS4 and who are keen to understand the value of upgrading, how to speed up their day-to-day workflow and how to design and distribute engaging interactive content across phones and tablets.

The Adobe team will be showing off new features such as Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop, the Bristle Brush and Beautiful Strokes from Illustrator, and the power of 64-bit processing and its effect on performance in features such as the Mercury Playback Engine and its leading video production software, Adobe Premiere Pro.

For those more interested in web design and development, the team will walk attendees through enhancements such as HTML5/CSS3 support and jQuery Mobile/PhoneGap integration. Adobe will also be showing how Dreamweaver across multiple devices, so designers can preview desktop, tablet and smartphone browsers side-by-side.

Also on show will be the InDesign toolset for Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite to enable creative pros to design interactive digital magazines, newspapers, corporate publications and advertising for reading on tablet devices such as Apple iPad,  Blackberry PlayBook and a wide variety of Android tablets.

The one-day event will be held at Vue Cinema in Fulham, London on May 11. It's free but seating is limited.
