Adobe Releases Beta Version of Photoshop CS3
Thursday, December 14, 2006
Posted by: Brian

Adobe has announced it will introduce a beta version of Adobe Photoshop CS3, the next release of its digital imaging software, on Friday, December 15th. Adobe is delivering a widely available Photoshop CS3 beta to enable customers to more easily transition to the latest hardware platforms, particularly Apple's new Intel-based systems. The beta is available as a Universal Binary for the Macintosh platform, as well as for Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista computers.

The Photoshop CS3 beta also includes a pre-release version of a major upgrade to Adobe Bridge, as well as a preview release of the all-new Adobe Device Central, which allows users to design, preview, and test compelling mobile content, created specifically for smaller screens. The final shipping release of Adobe Photoshop CS3 is planned for Spring 2007.

Nice droppage of G3 processors and a bump to a G4 minimum (1GHz??). Is there also a 64MB graphics requirement?

The transition to the dark side is almost complete. Laughing

I saw a video of the new CS3 interface and it looks cool.

Well... that basically cuts out almost every PPC Mac Mini, except the stealth upgrade units.

The CS3 beta runs great on my Mac mini, but what's up with these new icons from Adobe? Laughing

I know what you mean, the icons are the worst design I have ever seen. They must be "beta-cons". I can't believe how fast it runs. It opens 5-6 times faster than CS2, and I have 80% of my ram dedicated to Photoshop CS2.

Well, the icons are nice and simple - definitely a change from the old ones on CS and CS2.

Believe it or not, there is already a patch out there for this - saw it on digg I think ...

Oh and Photoshop CS3 is a speed demon on my MBP. It will launch in under three seconds, whereas CS2 took a solid minute.

So you think there are people out there who will fork out more for an upgrade than their Mac is worth ?

Or have I misunderstood your comment ?

I have no idea where you got that assumption.

That is really fast! Shocked

Is this with the initial launch? 12-15 seconds is about the best I can muster with my 2.16GHz Core Duo MacBook Pro with 1gig. My 1.83GHz Mac mini with 2gig does about the same.

Initial launch is about the same as yours, maybe a tad faster. Relaunch is where I see the really fast launches.

I also store Photoshop on an external Firewire drive, so that may give it a little speed boost.
