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.

Sidewinder X3 Left or right is alright

Sidewinder X3 Left or right is alright

Good news for southpaws and those with small hands. Microsoft has a gaming mouse just for you.

IT SEEMS as if Microsoft has at least been listening to users like me who have been complaining about the size of its Sidewinder series of gaming mice.

Every model so far has been oversized and very firmly right-handed in design, therefore leaving those of us with small- to medium-sized hands looking elsewhere for a more suitable gaming mouse.

However, with the Sidewinder X3, Microsoft seems to have addressed this issue, producing a gaming mouse which is not only a reasonable size, but is also ambidextrous in design.

So does it pass muster in the other important areas of gaming? Well, you’ll just have to read on to find out.


BETTER FIT: The X3 is much smaller than its siblings, making it a better fit for small- to medium-sized hands.

Conclusion

Overall, I like the Sidewinder X3, although there are some qualifications to this.

For one thing, I really would have liked an option to add a bit more weight to my mouse, as the X3 is a tad light for my liking.

However, this is really a personal preference, since I know some gamers actually like their mice to be as light and nimble as possible.

My only real complaint is that the one gaming mouse that Microsoft makes that is both ambidextrous in design and small enough to fit my hands is a relatively entry-level product.

Come on Microsoft, I’m sure there is a place for a mouse like this in the upper end of the market — perhaps one that’s both wireless, slightly heavier and with more customisable buttonsSince the price is actually quite reasonable for a gaming mouse, however, so should warrant a serious look if you’re on a budget.

Pros: Ambidextrous design; suitable for small- and medium-sized hands.

Cons: Not enough customisable buttons; a little lightends.
