Photoshop CS4 Extended the best gets better

Taking an already extensive and powerful photo editing tool and making it better is a tall order and yet Adobe has done it with Photoshop CS4 Extended.

SEAMLESS PANORAMA: Although not new in Photoshop CS4, the Photomerge has been made even better with more advanced automated analysis and blending.

MORE DEPTH: Photoshop CS4‘s Merge and Blend allows you to blend several shots of the same subject with different focal points into one photo with extended depth-of-field.

SPEEDY: One of the more major changes in Adobe Bridge is that the application launches faster and displays thumbnails faster too.

Conclusion

As usual, every new generation of Photoshop puts the software even further ahead of its rivals, and Photoshop CS4 Extended is no exception.

While probably not revolutionary, Photoshop CS4 has hundreds of little tweaks and interface changes that together make up for quite a lot.

I for one, am very happy with how Adobe has concentrated on maximising the viewing space and still have all the important tools at your fingertips, something which I feel Creative Suite 3 had really taken a step backwards with in its panels and toolbox design.

In fact, there are so many little changes in Photoshop CS4 I have only barely scratched the surface of the number of new features you can find in it.

Of course, being that the software costs RM4,099 it’s probably not worth upgrading to if you’re a casual user who already has Photoshop CS3, but for an imaging professional, this is certainly a worthy upgrade.

Pros: GPU acceleration; improved menus; lots of small tweaks and new features.

Cons: Pricey.

Microsoft sees big win from Windows 7

[media id=82 width=500 height=400]

The roll out of Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system for PCs will be the largest and fastest compared to that of previous operating systems by the software giant, the company said.

The rollout is scheduled for Oct 23 and Microsoft is pumped up over the feedback it is getting now on Windows 7.

“More than two million people downloaded the RC (release candidate) version (of the operating system) globally and the consensus has been largely positive,” said chief marketing officer for Microsoft Asia Pacific, Andrew Pickup.

Pickup said an IDC research report shows that by 2010, Windows 7 will account for about half of the Windows PCs bought by corporations. “And we expect to ship 177 million units by the end of that year,” he added.

Microsoft said that while XP, a previous version of Windows, is popular among PC users, especially businesses, the product is almost 10 years old now.

Chipmaker and long-time Microsoft partner, Intel Corp, said it has high hopes for the coming operating system. “There will be improved performance from Windows 7 with currently available hardware,” said Ryaz Patel, managing director of Intel Malaysia.

Microsoft has said that enhancements to the Windows 7 kernel have been made to ensure high standards of performance.

The software giant said its research also shows that some 10 million PCs will be sold in Malaysia between now and 2020.

“We believe Windows 7 will dominate in that period, given its advantages and new features,” said Pickup.
