I don't know if this has appeared in the forums already but has anyone else come across any stories about Apple coming out with a software called Photo Pro? I came across this story on this link:

http://www.thinksecret.com/news/0508adobe.html

If this has appeared in the forums before, I'm sorry to have repeated it but I couldn't find anything on this Apple Photo Pro when I did a search through the forums.

An interesting concept, but if its anything like iPhoto (an irritating hard drive space devourer), then I think I'll stick with Photohop CS.

Apple and Microsoft have licking their chops for a long time looking to go after Photoshop. I don't think either of them stands a chance. Have you heard about Microsoft's latest attempt to go after iPhoto.

I wonder if any of their copy editors read this sentence:

"Max is built on built on the next-generation WinFX technology that will drive the development of Windows Vista® applications."

It seems unlike Microsoft to have such a blunder on their website. I guess times are tough, with all the smart ones going to Google.

http://www.macosxrumors.com/articles/2005/10/16/apple-to-release-a-photo-retouching-application/

This rumor site is reporting that Core Image may be an integral part of this software-to-be-released, which if true of course leaves out the Mini.

Do you think Apple will release this app tomorrow? I have my doubts. Although, this might prevent Adobe from dragging their heels with Photoshop once Apple switches to Intel.

I'd love it if they did. Adobe could use some competition. Why should only one company make ultra-super-bloatware for photographers?

A Photoshop like program from Apple for $100 would be killer! Photoshop is too expensive for most people and Adobe stopped making Photoshop Elements for OS X. I wonder what they would call it?

Apple didn't have any problems releasing Final Cut Pro in the face of Adobe Premiere. A little competition is in the end probably a good thing for all concerned. And from what I read, it's not really direct competition for Photoshop anyway--more for Elements.

I think we'll see it in a few hours, along with whatever else Apple chooses to bless us with Laughing

I don't think anyone will apply. I doubt pro users will switch from Photoshop.

It looks to be more of a supplement to Photoshop. My take is that it's Adobe Bridge on steroids--mainly for image management and workflow.

At any rate, it requires a G5 and Core Image. But I doubt that hard-core professional photographers are doing this kind of production work on Minis anyway.
