August 24, 2005 – Just months after the release of Adobe Photoshop CS2, Think Secret has obtained several notes regarding Photoshop CS3, as well as word that Adobe may be developing two other yet unannounced products: Adobe Acrobat 3D and Adobe Full Frame.
Adobe is exploring offering two versions of Photoshop CS3, a Standard version and a Premium version. According to one plan under consideration, some principle new features, such as Camera Raw 4, would be available to both versions, while other functionality, such as Vanishing Point 2, would be available with more advanced options in the Premium version. Still other features, such as rotoscoping that was introduced in CS2, would be moved exclusively to the Premium package.
Editor’s Note: While it is tempting to comment on this story at length, we simply can’t except to say that leaks, whether real or not, are generally not in the best interest of the companies. But, this arguably is “news about Photoshop” so we included it in today’s postings. One should not draw any conclusions regarding the validity of the story based upon our posting however. It’s been our experience that very early leaks are often based upon speculation and misunderstanding–often as a result of “focus groups” being asked certain questions a certain way. It may or may not mean anything in the long run.
