Expression is Microsoft's new set of products for application designers. The Expression suite is due for a general release in 2006 and is viewed by many as Microsoft's response to Adobe's popular Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash graphic design products.
There are three products in the Expression suite:
- The Expression Interactive Designer, which lets designers combine 2D images with multimedia content and 3D images.
- The Expression Graphic Designer, which creates both vector and bitmap images for use in applications.
- The Expression Web Designer, which lets designers add elements such as cascading style sheets to Web applications.
