Adobe Releases Photoshop CS3 Beta

This year, Christmas is coming early, courtesy of Adobe, who have decided to release a public beta version of Photoshop 3. According to the company, this is to “enable customers to more easily transition to the latest hardware platforms, particularly Apple’s new Intel-based systems.”

You can download the beta, which is available as a Universal Binary for Macs or as a Windows XP/Vista compatible version, from http://labs.adobe.com, but in order to be able to do so, you’ll need a serial number from either Adobe Photoshop CS2, Adobe Creative Suite® 2, Adobe Creative Suite Production Studio, Adobe Design Bundle, Adobe Web Bundle or Adobe Video Bundle. If you don’t have a serial, you can still download the software, but it will expire after two days. Whether or not you have a serial, you’ll need to register online with Adobe or have an existing Adobe.com membership account to access the download.

Adobe claim that Photoshop CS3 is “packed with new features,”  including a pre-release version of a major upgrade to Adobe Bridge and the brand new ‘Adobe Device Central’, which, Adobe  say, can be used to “design, preview and test compelling mobile content, created specifically for smaller screens.” 
Though Adobe say there will still be some surprises in store when the final version is released, you’ll have to wait ‘till a yet unnamed date in Spring 2007 to find out what they are.

Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium

Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiOn 4th April 2005, at 12pm precisely, The Technofile delivered a world exclusive preview of Adobe’s Creative Suite 2, based upon very late official beta software. Since then the code’s gone gold master, the product’s shipped and the verdict’s in…and it’s a good one…in fact the best, because not only does CS2 deliver some excellent new functionality; thanks to Adobe’s vision of a ‘unified design environment’…which is not just a sound bite…but also a sound byte…CS2 offers far tighter integration of its constituent parts than ever before.

Adobe Creative Suite 2.0 (Exclusive Preview)

Adobe  Creative Suite 2.0 exclusive preview in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiA few weeks ago Adobe invited me to a very exclusive breakfast presentation at The Soho Hotel in London. Since, it started at 9.30a.m and I don’t get out of bed for less than ten billion, I stayed out and partied all night, which was hardly a sacrifice, but which did leave me feeling a little peckish.

No problem I thought, as my limo drew up at the doors of the Soho, I’ll have breakfast when I get inside. If only…no bagels, no smoked salmon, no cream cheese…not even any champagne. Fortunately the presentation was better than the breakfast… Continue reading “Adobe Creative Suite 2.0 (Exclusive Preview)”
