Adobe ImageReady CS2 icon

Adobe ImageReady was a bitmap web graphics editor that was developed and marketed by Adobe Systems.

Product historyEdit

Version 1.0 was released in July 1998. Starting with version 2.0, ImageReady was bundled with Adobe Photoshop 5.5 and was no longer sold as a separate product.[1] ImageReady 7 had its version renumbered to match that of Adobe Photoshop 7.


ImageReady no longer existed as a separate application with Photoshop CS3 as its software code was integrated directly into the Save for Web & Devices feature. Its functionality as a standalone application was superseded by Adobe Fireworks, starting with version CS3, after Adobe acquired Macromedia in December 2005.[2]
