CS2 for me is to die for. Still experimenting though.

By: Mark Wainer Mark Wainer Mon, 25 Apr 2005 06:08:47 +0000 I just started withCS2.

Bridge does not recognize thumbnails or build previews for my Canon 20D raw files. It works fine for the 10D files. Any suggestions or help?

By: mattias mattias Sun, 24 Apr 2005 21:41:01 +0000 Hey guys & gals,
Could you please also post system specs when commenting? Is it faster/slower than CS1? What about memory usage? Have the requirements been upped (again)?
In other words, do the new additions weigh up to the responsiveness of older versions?

By: Dave Dave Sun, 24 Apr 2005 00:33:54 +0000 Received the CS2 upgrade yesterday (Friday) and installed no problem. Rebuilt the cache on the hard drive, it took 4 1/2 hours – almost twice as long as CS1 – bummer. Bridge is slow and clunky with raw settings, well maybe its the operator here but I can’t get Camera Raw to batch process files. It also took me 15 minutes of poking around to find the color settings. Like the new healing tool. Like some of the views of Bridge but hate the two app aspect and it is way too slow compared to CS1. Kind of dissapointed at this point.

By: william william Fri, 22 Apr 2005 22:46:29 +0000 I received CS2 on Thurs 4/22. I posted the below on another forum, but thought I’d share it here too.

First impressions (after a couple of hours of use on my Powerbook):

(1) There’s a LOT of new stuff to learn. Many more differences than when upgrading from PS 7 to PS CS (8).

(2) The Bridge application isn’t working properly. It’s running really slowly, hangs and gives me the spinning ball whenever I ctrl-click. (Update: Bridge is now running smoothly)

(3) I really really really like the Bridge “filmstrip” view (a la Capture One), where the thumbnails of the files you’re browsing appear as a “filmstrip” along to bottom or the side (you can change it).

(4) RAW images from my 1Ds Mk II seem to open a wee bit slower in PS CS2 than in CS (I have 2Gb of Ram in the Powerbook). OTOH, filters seem to be MUCH faster. I don’t think it’s just my subjective impression — there seems to be a significant difference.

(5) The “Color Settings” dialog (where you tell Photoshop what color management policies to use, what your color working space is, etc) has been moved from under the “Photoshop” menu to under the “Edit” menu. Took me about 10 minutes to figure out where it was. “Assign Profile” and “Convert to Profile” have been moved to the Edit menu as well, rather than being under Image: Mode.

(6) The Photoshop Help is MUCH improved.

(7) I find myself getting confused as to whether I’m working in Bridge, Camera Raw, or Photoshop. I’m sure I’ll get used to it.

(8) I can’t figure out yet how to enable the new function where Camera Raw (thru Bridge?) can process a batch of RAW images in the background while I continue to work in Photoshop. I’m sure it’s int he manual (which I haven’t opened yet), but it’s definiely not self-evident.

(9) The default Camera Raw settings for Raw images show much more saturation and contrast than was the case for the default Camera Raw settings in CS. I consider this a good thing, since the Raw preview in CS always looked a bit flat to me. The Raw preview in CS2 (and therefore the pre-adjusted Raw file) looks much closer to the images as I shot them.

(10) There’s a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in the top right corner of the Raw preview in Camera Raw. Not sure what that’s about — perhaps a warning that the highlights are blown or the shadows are lost at the default settings? (Again, I’m sure it’s in the manual).

(11) The new color management workflow for printing (File: Print with Preview) is taking some getting used too just because a couple of things aren’t in exactly the same places, but it does seem to be more intuitive.

By: Richard Weisgrau Richard Weisgrau Fri, 22 Apr 2005 22:27:54 +0000 Yes, my upgrade copy came today, Friday, 4/22. I have installed it, but I have only explored the Adobe Bridge function as of this moment. My impression of Bridge is that it alone is worth the price of the upgrade. It will definitely facilitate my workflow.
