Adobe Muse is a full-featured website design application that enables developers to create simple to complex layouts without requiring advanced HTML knowledge. Providing the compelling and user-friendly environment that Adobe accustomed its users with, it bundles an extended feature set ready to assist you in generating and publishing professional-looking webpages.
Adobe Muse offers support for the latest technologies and standards, allowing the creation of cross-browser websites for PCs, tablets and phones. Unlike other similar utilities, it does not feature code editing, which makes it perfect for inexperienced users who like focusing on the design rather than the coding process.
Thanks to the so-called 'Plan Mode', you can configure the layout of your webpage by creating a sitemap, rearranging pages using drag and drop actions and creating master pages. Then, you can proceed to customizing the design of each section by adding locally stored images, video content, link anchors or use the rich widget library to insert buttons, tooltips, contact forms, horizontal or vertical menus, tabbed panels or image galleries.
Considering the popularity of social networks, it is a must to embed social buttons into a website. Adobe Muse's library includes predefined buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Vimeo and YouTube.
Scroll effects and animations can be added to make the page more appealing, while the extended collection of web fonts, the rich color palette, the advanced text editing options, the customizable character, graphic and paragraph styles help you make sure that the output website looks exactly as you want it to. Objects can be easily rearranged, locked or hidden and layers can be easily managed and organized.
The website can be previewed within the application or in the default web browser right before exporting the project in HTML format or uploading it with a FTP provider.
Rising up to its developer's name, Adobe Muse is intended to assist beginner designers in creating interactive websites. The source code is automatically generated by the application, which allows them to unleash their creativity and concentrate on the site appearance.
