Adobe Master Collection 3 (also know as Adobe CS3) is one of the most popular and powerful graphic, photo and Web design software packages in the world, as of 2010. The software typically installs as a full access trial version, so you will need to activate it with your serial number to continue using the program once the trial period is over.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Verify that you are connected to the Internet.
