The Master Collection of Adobe Creative Suite 6, before the company rebranded the line as Adobe Creative Cloud, features seven main programs. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat X Pro, Flash Professional, Flash Builder and Dreamweaver all come with hefty price tags separately, and even bundled as one Suite, but there are cheaper alternatives to each program that can be purchased online, many from the Mac App Store.
