Puppies now 30% fluffier with CS3
Workflow, shmerkflow: what we want to know about is how Photoshop can handle cute pet photos, right?
Er, maybe not–but selecting irregular things like hair certainly is important, and it’s a problem that’s bedeviled both users and computer scientists for many years. CS3 makes some real progress in this regard (hint: check out that mysterious Radius slider in the new Refine Edge dialog), and last week Jon Fortt of Business 2.0 sat down with Adobe engineer Gregg Wilensky to look at the results. You can see his notes–along with well-fluffed puppies–here. [For more on how the technology came to be, see "Male-pattern baldness -> Great Photoshop feature."]
