D-65 now teaching CS2

Press Release: Did you think Photoshop CS was too sloooow. Did the File Browser take forever to load your thumbnails? Were you using a bunch of different applications just to process your files? Do you have a need for speeeed? Well, Photoshop CS2 will accelerate your workflow. The old File Browser has matured, becoming an elegant and sophisticated separate application called Adobe Bridge which bridges the gap in workflow. It acts seamlessly with CS2 and other Adobe applications. In conjunction with Camera Raw 3, raw processing workflow has been completely re-tuned allowing work to really flow, enhancing digital processing, file management and generally reducing time while improving quality. Speed is fundamental for workflow and CS2 is all about SPEED.
