The professional standard in desktop digital imaging.
Get superior results faster with industry-standard Adobe ® Photoshop ® CS software, the powerful new upgrade from Photoshop 7.0. You're in control with indispensable new features for graphic and Web designers, photographers, and video professionals.
With an interface that still carries the familiar feel and layout, anyone who has used Photoshop v5 or greater will have no discomfort using this. An important factor really. The same features you have come to know and love in v7 are all still in the same places, and the new features are so seamlessly integrated, you'll hardly know they are there until you use them, or go looking. The power of this, now totally meshed in with the other top-line products, makes the workflow so smooth, you'll wonder how you managed to get by with them separated.
And for those who like that sort of thing, yes, I found some Easter Eggs in the first night, so knock yourselves out, they are hiding in there.
ImageReady however does have a slightly different interface. Not much, but enough to make you second-guess yourself for the first half an hour or so. Once you learn the new locations, and get past the default layout, you'll be in home territory again. And yes, again, more Easter Eggs hidden away.
The only thing lacking (or too well hidden for me to find) that I wish was still there is the Render>3D-Transform filter. It had some dinky uses. But the new Render>Fibres filter does look very cool. However, careful use of the Render>Clouds filter and a bit of distortion could achieve very close to the same effect. Even the use of the GRAIN filter could cover this too.
