Adobe Systems, the company behind Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and a multitude of creative software applications, has shut its North American operations for a week as part of a cost-cutting effort.

Adobe said it would repeat the week long break at least once more this year. The company took a similar break in April when Adobe asked staff to use paid holiday time during the closures.

Adobe's sales have declined for the last two quarters, although it still reported $126.1 million in profit on $704.7 million in revenue for the quarter that ended 29 May.
