You’ve heard two are better than one
Today, Adobe is announcing that there are not one but two flavors of Adobe’s Photoshop product. You can get some of the details by reading John Nack’s Blog;
I’ve just started to wade into the deep waters of Photoshop Extended which is the flavor I’m most excited about, because it really adds a tremendous amount of features for video workflow and production. As John alluded, we can’t dive into details right now, but most peoples response has been, ‘wow, we knew you were going to make improvements, but we never imagined it would be as good as this.’ Gotta be honest, that makes us all feel really good. If for some reason you’re not aware, you can test drive Photoshop CS3 Standard today by going to the Adobe Labs website.
It’s a cornucopia of public beta Adobe products.
Back to Photoshop CS3 Extended – it’s fun…really fun and if you’re a video or motion graphics person, you’re going to want this version instead of the Standard. John also alluded to 3D and I think it will be a huge change in the workflow for specific market segments.
When you ponder about Photoshop, perhaps you’re like me in thinking, “What else can they possibly add to this program?” Photoshop CS3 Extended answers those questions and then some. Perhaps the best part is when I spoke to John in the Fall, he was already hard at work thinking what CS4 would have. That’s good for Photoshop users everywhere.
