Computer Questions - Adobe related
Can somebody please educate me a little. I bought a new laptop recently and there are pre-loaded softwares on the computer already, namely Bridge CS3, Device Central CS3, ExtendScript Toolkit CS3 and Ext Manager CS3. I have never heard of these Adobe titles, being mostly a photo editing person. Can someone please give me a short preamble to them, and what they are used for?
As well, during the summer and the next term at local university, I will be doing mostly pdf publishing, photo editing. I have Adobe Acrobat 6 as well as Irfanview as my primary publication tools. I am not aware of any other softwares that I have on my computer, saved for the usual MS office XP, and Openoffice 2.4
Can you also advice whether it's worth the money to get Adobe softwares? Thanks a million. Processing power and ram need not be a concern.
