Rome wasn’t built in a day

Adobe Rome was officially launched this weekend, with a free public preview. It integrates features found in Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and other Adobe software into an awesome, creative design tool that can be accessed online or as an AIR app.

I first saw Rome in a video from Adobe MAX 2009, then in January I was privileged to meet some of the Rome engineers and discuss some of the features of the infant product. Over the past 9 months I participated in the Rome beta and witnessed how the product evolved through feedback from the many educators and professionals involved in the beta process.

Now, Rome is here for all to see. It boasts a range of tools and features that opens up the creation of animation, websites, online documents and multimedia to a brand new audience. In particular I can see Rome being a popular tool for education. Teachers can use Rome to integrate different media to create engaging lessons, while students can create coursework with a whole new dimension of interactivity. Adobe have even created a special preview just for education.

Rome may not have been built in a day, but that’s because it takes time to make something this good.
