PixelGenius to release beta updates for Photoshop CS3

PixelGenius, the makers of PhotoKit, PhotoKit Sharpener and PhotoKit Color 2.0 has announced plans to offer beta updates of their plug-ins to run natively on the MacIntel version of Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Because of the changes required for plug-ins running natively under Photoshop CS3 on MacIntel machines, all plug-ins will be required to be recompiled as Universal Binaries for MacIntel compatibility. The only alternative for running non-UB versions of plug-ins under Photoshop CS3 is to launch CS3 under Rosetta which of course, defeats the purpose of running Photoshop CS3 natively.

PixelGenius expects to have “beta” versions of all 3 of their products available for download “by about Christmas” according to Jeff Schewe, PG partner.

Note: plug-ins installed under Photoshop CS3 for PPC Macs and Windows do not need to be UB versions and existing plug-ins should run normally.
