What’s new in Photoshop CS3 for Photographers

cover-versioncs3-low.jpgTo coincide with the announcement and availability of Photoshop CS3 as a public beta, Martin Evening has released a sample chapter from his forthcoming book: Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Photographers, published by Focal Press.

The new edition of this best selling book should be hitting the streets in Spring of 2007, shortly after the official release of Photoshop CS3.

As a special perk for PhotoshopNews readers, Martin has made his Chapter 1: What’s New in Photoshop CS3 available for free download.

The 21 page PDF, outlines all the new features of Photoshop CS3 and Bridge 2, written from a user’s perspective. It offers an honest appraisal of what will be on offer in this new version of the program, if you really want to know what’s NEW!

    Good overview Martin. I especially like the honesty in your opinion of the new features and of course those of Bridge 2.0.

  2. Martin Evening Says:

    I hope people think I am being fair with some of the criticisms made in the PDF chapter. Overall, there are some very good reasons to upgrade and all CS2 customers will be given the chance to try the program out for themselves long in advance of when they are able to buy Photoshop CS3. For those of us who are photographers and who have got used to using Lightroom, the new Bridge spec doesn’t really compete so well with all the things you can now do much faster and more easily in Lightroom. But Bridge 2.0 is still an improvement over Bridge 1.0 for performing those file management tasks where you simply need a good browser. And the speed is much faster on the intel macs.

    The PDF download link keeps bombing out – throws me right out of my ISP. I’ve tried for two days – please fix it.
