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.
