What is Adobe Muse?
Adobe® Muse™ software enables designers to create HTML websites for desktop and mobile devices, without writing code. Design web-standard sites, like you design print layouts. Use familiar features, hundreds of web fonts, and built-in tools to add interactivity. Then, publish with the Adobe Business Catalyst® service and redeem site hosting support, or publish with any hosting provider.
Design with freedom
Quickly lay a smart foundation for your site in Adobe® Muse™ so you can focus on designing with easy-to-use sitemaps and master pages. Use intuitive tools to express your ideas; combine imagery, graphics, and beautiful typography with the power of styles; benefit from roundtrip editing; and more.
Sitemaps - Arrange your pages with an easy-to-use sitemap that allows you to set up and change site structure quickly. Drag and drop, name, and resize your thumbnails.
Master pages - Define and control elements that are common across multiple pages such as headers, footers, logos, and navigation. Simply add them to your master page layouts.
Familiar Adobe tools - Create layouts intuitively with Smart Guides and the Paste In Place and Edit Original commands. Use other familiar features such as the Eyedropper tool, columns, gutters, and more.
Web font choices - Choose from hundreds of typefaces served from the Adobe Muse font menu including Adobe Edge Web Fonts hosted by the Adobe Typekit® service, plus web-safe fonts and system fonts.
Dynamic page resizing - Enjoy automatic page length adjustment. Adobe Muse layouts resize in height as much as needed to accommodate the length of your page content.
Image optimization - Know that your images will look great and load perfectly for the web. Adobe Muse automatically optimizes PSD and PNG files when you publish.
Roundtrip editing - Edit images with Adobe Photoshop® or Fireworks® software using Edit Original. Your changes will be automatically reflected in your layout when you save.
Text and paragraph styles - Create and format text, saving text styles just as you would in Adobe InDesign® software. Styles are preserved in CSS, which is automatically generated sitewide.
Align and distribute panel - Align and distribute objects relative to the page and within widgets, much like you do in Adobe InDesign® or Adobe Illustrator® software.
Backgrounds - Fill your background with a single image, repeating images, or any fill you choose — optimized for the best page-load performance.
Object pinning - Easily pin an object to any spot you choose so that it always displays in that location, even when you scroll up or down the page.
Headers and footers - Assign header and footer areas that repeat on every page. Footers will automatically shift to the bottom of the page no matter what the length of your content is.
Ruler guides - Drag guides onto a page from the horizontal or vertical ruler. Just like in InDesign, guides include all the expected behaviors like view, lock, delete, add, snap, and position.
Flexible display - Get full control over your layout appearance by choosing to set elements to display at 100% browser width or height, so your design adapts to the size of the browser window.
Asset management - Keep track of all image assets associated with your site using the Assets panel, which includes the option to relink your images.
Add rich interactivity
Create an engaging site by adding interactive elements including contact forms, slide shows, and social media buttons. Organize your site content with custom navigation, tabs, and accordions. Plus, easily embed maps and blogs or add animation.
Built-in contact form support - Create and customize contact forms for sites hosted with the Adobe Business Catalyst® service and receive the submitted information via email.
Auto-generated navigation - Drag and drop fully customizable navigation menus that automatically reflect the pages in your sitemap.
Defined object states - Easily define up, over, down, and normal states for any object in Adobe Muse. Create buttons by applying states to individual Adobe Photoshop layers.
Embedded HTML - Add Google Maps, videos from YouTube, feeds from Facebook, and more. Simply copy the source code and paste onto your Adobe Muse canvas.
Anchor links - Quickly create anchor links that take visitors to a specific location in the middle of a page or design.
Slide shows - Drag and drop a fully customizable slide show widget for an easy, eye-catching way to display a series of images.
Tabbed and accordion panels - Organize lengthy information in visually appealing, bite-size chunks by using fully customizable tabbed or accordion panels.
Lightboxes - Create an overlay that brings special focus to an image, video, or other content by having it appear in a layer on top of your page.
Triggers and targets - Define hotspots or triggers that display additional content when a user clicks or rolls over the area.
Easy file attachment - Easily add and link any type of file, including PDF, ZIP, DMP, and EXE, for readers to download from your website. All assets will be uploaded and exported with your site file when publishing.
HTML5 animations - Easily add HTML5 animation files created with Adobe Edge Animate. Simply place the file on the canvas, and preview the action in the Preview mode.
Create mobile versions
Create a unique layout for desktop, smartphone, and tablet versions of your website. Customize each experience by choosing which pages, page attributes, content, and styles appear in each version. Include touch-enabled phone numbers and email addresses. Include interactive elements such as a slide show — touch gestures like scrolling work automatically — without coding.
NEW Mobile layout options - Create unique smartphone and tablet versions of your site by selecting a layout in the Plan mode. Control how your design will look on all brands of smartphone and tablet devices.
NEW Mobile content and style options - Make your site look just as amazing on mobile devices as it does on large desktop monitors. Freely design the smartphone and tablet layouts by controlling the content and style of each experience.
NEW Touch-enabled interactivity - Take advantage of mobile viewing by hyperlinking phone numbers to automatically dial when tapped or email addresses to open emails with the "To" address already filled in.
NEW Gesture-enabled widgets - Use Adobe Muse widgets in your mobile designs. Interactivity will automatically convert to touch gestures, such as finger scrolling or page swiping, without coding.
