Peter Krogh Update RapidFixer for CS3

product_rapidfixer.pngWhen Photoshop CS3 with Bridge 2 shipped, RapidFixer kinda got broken…so now Peter Krogh, author of The DAM Book: Digital Asset Management for Photographers has updated RapidFixer for CS3 compatibility.NEW! Photoshop CS3 Compatibility: The first RapidFixer version for CS3 is now ready to ship and they have made significant changes to the interface, and updated the software to control the new Adobe Camera Raw 4.0+ tools.

NEW! RapidFixer now works on DNG files, as well as JPEG and TIFF files. (In all cases, you must apply a Camera Raw Default to the image first).

NEW! RapidFixer has settings for working on Black and White Negatives. This lets you use a digital camera to copy negatives, and make adjustments in Camera Raw. Check out the last half of the movie to see it in action.

John Nack Wants Help

John Nack (Photoshop Product Manager for those that don’t get out much) has posted a request for feedback regarding a scheme for User-powered help inside Photoshop. Although the way John is describing his approach is kinda icky…he says “I’m proposing that Photoshop (and other Adobe apps) become living organisms, platforms that constantly improve as users learn & share.” Well, as far as that goes, it’s cool, but it’s the “living organism” part that could be a bit creepy :~) Could that be why the new Photoshop logo looks like a head?


In any event, go over to John’s blog to read more and offer feedback (and tell him you don’t want to have to buy Photoshop-Chow at the pet store).

Here’s his post: Feedback, please: User-powered help inside Photoshop?
