    Default Resources - Photoshop / Illustrator / DreamWeaver / Flash + more

    I don't know what happened to the previous resources thread and i don't really care, so i've decided to start a new one and I know this is a Graphics orientated forum, but i've also included valubale information about other types of software that range in Web and Graphic Design. So I hope it'll be useful to you.
