Book: Photoshop CS3 Beta First Look by Ben Long

Adobe Photoshop CS3 Beta First Look by Ben Long

Ben Long’s “Adobe Photoshop CS3 Beta First Look” highlights the performance improvements of the now Intel-native application, and offers some insight into a few of the key new features, including the non-destructive, “Smart Filters,” the enhanced selection and Rubber Stamp tools, and the Camera RAW 4.0 plug-in.

“If Adobe had done nothing more than release a Universal CS2, many users would probably be happy,” said Ben referring to the speed gain of CS3, adding, “Within a few days of playing with the new features, though, you’ll probably forget all about your previous performance concerns.”

Adobe Photoshop CS3 Beta First Look with Adobe Bridge and Camera Raw will be released on January 18, but you may pre-order it now from Peachpit Press for $18.
