    saw that too. i dun quite understand why Adobe is doing the activation/deactivation thingy by ping-ing to their website. its not only a pain but what if u dun have internet connection? that will render it totally useless!!

    imagine u r out with a laptop installed with this latest ver of Photoshop. your laptop doesn't have wireless connection or for some reason, u dun wish to pay for those internet hot spot zone. then how? cannot use anymore? how about if u r on vacation? got laptop but not internet connection, so totally cannot use. i think i can give this ver a miss.

    This is quite like the XML Spy. If they cannot ping, then you can still continue to work on the version. They know very well they cannot assume that we are continuously online. That said, I agree that it is a stupid move. Even Microsoft's software, which are more pirated, do not do this

    Adobe Announces New Photoshop CS2 with Dramatic Camera Raw Workflow Enhancements and More

    SAN JOSE, Calif. — April 4, 2005 — Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced Adobe Photoshop CS2, a major upgrade to the professional industry standard for digital image editing and creation. Available as a stand-alone software application or as a key component of Adobe Creative Suite 2, also announced today (see separate press release), Photoshop CS2 software brings a new level of power, precision and control to the digital photography experience and to the overall creative process.

    "Photoshop CS2 pushes the envelope with powerful features and simplified workflows that provide photographers and creative professionals the freedom to deliver stunning images," said Bryan Lamkin, senior vice president of Digital Imaging and Digital Video Products at Adobe. "In light of the four million digital SLRs expected to ship this year, more photographers than ever will be making Photoshop CS2 their digital darkroom of choice."

    Photoshop CS2 integrates a new set of intuitive tools, including an enhanced Spot Healing Brush, for handling common photographic problems such as blemishes, red-eye, noise, blurring and lens distortion. Responding to requests from film, broadcast and video professionals, Photoshop CS2 now allows non-destructive editing and the creation and editing of 32-Bit High Dynamic Range (HDR) images, ideal for 3D rendering and advanced compositing.

    The new Camera Raw 3.0 workflow allows settings for multiple raw files to be simultaneously modified. In addition batch processing of raw files, to JPEG, TIFF, DNG or PSD formats, can now be done in the background without launching the main Photoshop executable. Integrated, non-destructive cropping and straightening controls allow raw files to be easily prepared for final output.

    Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Mac OS X version 10.2.8 through 10.3.8, Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or Windows XP with Service Pack 1 or 2, will begin shipping in May to customers in the United States and Canada, and will be available through Adobe Authorized Resellers and the Adobe Store at www.adobe.com/store . International versions are expected to begin shipping in late May and early June. Adobe Photoshop CS2 will be available for an estimated street price of US$599 and licensed users of any previous version of Photoshop can upgrade for US$149.

    who here actually hit the limitations of PS CS already?
    CS2 launch is good. cos that means price of CS will drop.

    They ususally throw in so much features that we actually use more than 50% of it. PS CS too ex? there's always open source
