Adobe released Photoshop CS5 with some impressive new features for photographers. I'll cover them in more depth in tomorrow's TDS podcast. But here's a quick preview of what's hot in this latest version.
- 64-bit support for Macs, but you need to have an Intel Mac to run CS5.
- Paint on Sharpen tool gives you localized control.
- Content Aware Fill - really terrific for finishing off panoramas.
- Lens correction built in.
- Great noise reduction.
- Terrific new HDR Pro, really nice.
- New processing engine for ACR.
- Mini Bridge, provides image browsing in the Photoshop interface.
Prices for upgrade are $199 for Photoshop CS5 and $349 for Photoshop CS5 Extended.
We'll dig deeper into this latest version in upcoming weeks, but it looks like a much improved application for photographers.
