Adobe Photoshop CS3 Universal Binary beta due this friday

“Adobe Systems Inc. on Friday will make available for download an early public beta of its next-generation graphics editor, Photoshop CS3, but will otherwise abstain from delivering pre-release copies of other Creative Suite 3.0 applications,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.

Jade reports, “People familiar with the matter tell AppleInsider that Adobe chief executive Bruce Chizen will formally announce plans for the beta release during the company’s fiscal fourth quarter conference call with analysts and members of the media on Thursday.”

“The Photoshop CS3 beta, which will be posted to the Adobe Labs website on friday, will include Adobe Bridge and Device Central components, and be available simultaneously for both the Mac and Windows operating systems,” Jade reports. “People familiar with the Macintosh version of the editor confirm it to be a Universal Binary which ‘simply screams’ on Apple Computer’s new Intel-based hardware. However, they tell AppleInsider that this week’s beta will include only the standard version of Photoshop CS3.”

“In order to download the Photoshop CS3 beta, users will need a valid serial number to one of the various Creative Suite 2.0 distributions,” Jade reports.

  1. So, if it simply screams on MacIntel, will Adobe go dutch with Apple and Intel on an advert in the press saying how its better than CS3 running on a WinDell AMD box?

    It would seem only fair after that Premiere/After Effects thing they ran several years ago.

  2. “People familiar with the Macintosh version of the editor confirm it to be a Universal Binary which ‘simply screams’ on Apple Computer’s new Intel-based hardware. However, they tell AppleInsider that this week’s beta will include only the standard version of Photoshop CS3.”

    This is just poor copy editing. The “However” does imply that what follows is in contrast with what preceded it, i.e. the standard version does not scream and/or is not UB.
