Upgrade time…

I’ve just had CS4 installed on my Mac here in the office and what a difference it makes. I’ve made the jump from Photoshop CS2 to CS4 and I can’t believe how much of a difference there is between the two versions. The main difference is the speed. With all the image adjustments incorporated into the main interface, I think my mouse wondering what’s going on! It’s such a subtle thing but reducing the mouse movement saves so much time! It’s also mega smooth too. Magnifying image parts is so slick …

I’ve just had CS4 installed on my Mac here in the office and what a difference it makes. I’ve made the jump from Photoshop CS2 to CS4 and I can’t believe how much of a difference there is between the two versions. The main difference is the speed. With all the image adjustments incorporated into the main interface, I think my mouse wondering what’s going on! It’s such a subtle thing but reducing the mouse movement saves so much time! It’s also mega smooth too. Magnifying image parts is so slick that I find myself doing it for the sake of it! It makes Cs2 look so juddery in comparison. It’s quite amazing to think how fast technology evolves – we were once marveling over  CS2 and who knows what we’ll be working with in 10 years time. For those who haven’t had a look yet, then check out the demo of CS4 at www.adobe.com. No doubt it will promptly be added to the top of your Christmas wish list! 

  • I’m currently using CS2 which is a result of years of upgrade purchases. I think I’m going to bite the bullet this holiday season and buy the new CS4. Best wishes and thanks for the feedback on the new platform

  • I have been using CS2 since it made it’s first appearance, but am at the stage where I am taking more and more photos. I am an Invalid Pensioner, and follow your magazine voraciously. My only complaint is that, to my way of thinking, there are not enough CS2 Tutorials. I realise you need to cater to the larger community, but my pension has permanently restricted me from upgrading. So, in this light, would it be possible to run a couple more Magazine Tutorials to cater to the CS2 users out here. Apart from that, kudos to you, the magazine is AWESOME!
