In their own language, Adobe claims that Creative Suite is the "powerhouse design environment that revolutionized print and web workflows for creative professionals worldwide." The words that define how Adobe relates their Creative Suite to users is "creative professionals." We can safely assume Adobe is primarily referring to all those who work...

Adobe's rationale for releasing a beta version of their next Photoshop CS3 to the public, at least those who are CS2 licensed users, is that they wanted to give support to Apple users with new Intel processor Macs. This would allow those users to have Photoshop running "native" instead of in emulation mode sooner than later. While this does lend support to...

Is a new upgrade on software merely an excuse for a new revenue stream for companies? One could take that somewhat cynical view, but on the other hand I wonder if it is any different than any new model of a product that is made attractive by new and improved features.

Besides putting me on my toes by requiring me to learn new ways of working, I used the release of two graphics applications for the OS X operating system, Corel...

It has been about a year since I first tried Apple's Aperture, reported on in the May 2006 issue of Shutterbug (available at www.shutterbug.com; type Aperture into the Search box). Since, Aperture has been updated via automatic upgrades from Apple. The Apple Aperture application for professional photographers as I described in my report was the first of its kind devoted...

With so many digital SLR cameras sold in the last few years it was inevitable that programmers would put together solutions to serve all of the needs of photographers in a comprehensive application. That Apple would be out front with their slick and powerful Aperture application, I think, caught some off guard. But considering all the independent activity in conversion support...
