Microsoft getting into web design/graphics software

Microsoft plans to release its first suite of Web and graphic design software by mid 2007, putting it into competition with graphics king Adobe Systems, makers of such software titles as Photoshop and Illustrator.

The new software suite named Expression Studio, is expected to ship sometime in the second quarter. All four components will sell for a combined price of $599.

The suite will include Expression Web, a web design tool that is the successor to the discontinued FrontPage web design software. Expression Blend, an interactive design tool formerly known as Interactive Designer but with a new user interface. Expression Design, a layout and graphic design tool similar to Adobe Illustrator. And a copy of Visual Studio.
