Photoshop CS5 update (12.0.2) now available

The Adobe Photoshop 12.0.2 update (Mac|Win) speeds up painting performance and fixes a number of problems discovered after Photoshop CS5 was released.  The most significant fixes in the update include the following:

  • A number of potential security vulnerabilities have been addressed
  • Crashing bugs related to typography & fonts have been addressed
  • Performance of various features has been improved
  • Crashes related to opening 3D layers, sharpening, color management, and scanning via TWAIN devices have been fixed
  • Problems with brush cursors, the histogram progress bar, the display of selection boundaries (“marching ants”), scrolling while using the shift key, and the use of action droplets have been addressed
  • Intermittent file format problems have been addressed
  • Metadata-related bugs related to focus distance and Orphea Studio JPEGs have been fixed

 

In addition you can download a TWAIN plug-in update that includes fixes for multiple document scanning, and a that fixes a crash that could occur when attempting a second scan.

I haven’t tried it & haven’t seen user feedback, but the new VueScan 9 scanning app promises 64-bit compatibility and the ability to create very large scans.  If you take it for a spin with Photoshop CS5, you’re welcome to post your impressions here. [Via Jeff Tranberry]
