The Stock Market Will Be Death of Me One Day

but back on topic here is the top ten new features for Adobe Photoshop CS
  • Improved File Browser
    Quickly preview, tag, and sort images; search and edit metadata and keywords; and automatically share batches of files from the improved File Browser.
  • Match Color command
    Achieve a consistent look between package shots, fashion photos, and more by instantly matching the color scheme of one image to another.
  • Histogram palette
    Monitor changes to your image in the Histogram palette, which dynamically updates as you make adjustments.
  • Shadow/Highlight correction
    Quickly improve the contrast of over- or underexposed areas of an image while preserving the overall balance of the photo using Shadow/Highlight correction.
  • Text on a path
    Create eye-catching typography by placing text on paths or within shapes. Edit the text at any time, even in Adobe Illustrator software.
  • Integrated digital camera raw file support
    Get truer, higher quality output by working with the complete raw data files from most major digital camera models.
  • Comprehensive 16-bit support
    Perform more precise editing and retouching with expanded support for 16-bit images in core features, including layers, brushes, text, shapes, and more.
  • Layer Comps
    Create design variations for clients more efficiently by saving different combinations of layers within the same file as Layer Comps.
  • Macromedia® Flash™ (SWF) file export
    Use ImageReady CS to create SWF animations, complete with vector artwork and variable text.
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts
    Customize, save, and print a summary of your ideal set of keyboard shortcuts, so the functions you use most are always at your fingertips.

what can i say. another step in the slow evolution of PS. nothing earthshattering there. they never come up with anything that another program hasen't really pioneered before them.

improved file browser- i use ACDsee for that. it links perfectly with PS and is considerably more informative.

text on a path- was available in picture publisher 6 yrs ago. sort of surprized they fnally got there being as they're a real biggie in text/fonts and publishing.

integrated RAW support- been there bought that. evolution at its best.

flash support- why bother? well ok thanks for the bone i won't use.

custom keyboard shortcuts- now thats nice

16 bit color hopefully full support?- see evolution

say goodbye to another $169+tax
