The Adobe Photoshop team was staring into the teeth of a perfect storm when they began the development cycle for CS3. Windows Vista was looming and Apple made a surprise switch to Intel processors. Suddenly, not only did Adobe have to deliver a new version of their venerable photo editing application, they had to completely change the entire development process to do so.
In this interview with Dave Story, Adobe VP of Product Development for Digital Imaging, and Kevin Connor, Senior Director of Digital Imaging Product Management, you will get an insider's look at the development of Photoshop CS3, the thinking behind the Extended Edition, and the directions we'll see Adobe take in the future. This is part one of a two part interview recorded at Adobe headquarters in San Jose, CA.
