Interview: Kevin Connor – Adobe Systems, Inc.

PhotoshopNews talks to Kevin Connor, senior director of product management at Adobe Systems.

Kevin, Photoshop CS2 and the entire CS Suite has just been announced, did you really think you would make it?
Of course, I always knew we would make it–I just didn’t necessarily know how! Thankfully, the team has done another remarkable job and delivered a feature-packed release right on schedule.

I know one of the things that you’ve been working hard on is the Digital Negative (DNG) initiative–Adobe’s archival format for digital camera raw files. What are the major advances with DNG in Photoshop CS2? Is there a new DNG rev with CS2?

My title is “Product Manager, Adobe Photoshop.”

One of the big new features of Photoshop CS2 is Adobe Bridge, can you tell us why you guys decided to rip the File Browser out of Photoshop and make it a stand-alone application?
