Adobe launches Project Rome, a free (for now) Content Editing Platform

Project Rome is the latest offering from Adobe, a company know for their extensive line of revolutionary products. Adobe describes it as an “all-in-one content creation and publishing application” targeted to consumers, small businesses, and educators, and designed to be easy enough to be used by the average user yet powerful enough to entice professionals.

Project Rome lets users produce printed, electronic, and Web-based documents featuring integrated graphics, photos, text, video, audio, animation, and interactivity. The cross-platform application is available both as an Adobe AIR desktop program and as a browser-based Web service. Project Rome offers output in formats such as PDF, SWF, JPG, PNG, SVG, or FXG or Web files for either an Adobe or third-party-hosted Website.


Users can create projects ranging from printed materials like flyers, business cards, and reports to interactive documents, basic Websites, and animations. Adobe envisions Rome being used in the workplace for presentations, marketing materials, online advertising, and Websites. Individuals and families can use Project Rome for vacation updates, family Websites, party invitations, digital scrapbooks, CD and DVD covers, and other personal projects.

Project Rome is tightly integrated with the cloud that lets user create, collaborate and share projects using, Google Docs, Facebook and Twitter.

The product is definitely not that easy to use as Adobe wants you to believe. The interface contains a bewildering number of menus and options that's enough to intimidate any user who doesn’t know his way around design tools. So at the end of the day, a client who is looking for quality would still approach a professional designer rather than attempt his own creation with Project Rome.

Project Rome is currently available now as a free preview, but it has already been decided to be a paid product once it is released commercially.

Below is a video introduction from Adobe.

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
