Still the photoshop franchise continues to soar. I love this little beast, the pro's always outway the negative aspects.

Great review. An excellent producthas just got much better - more versatile yet more user friendly. Pity our Rand is so weak other wise it would be an instant buy!

Good Overview. More detailed reviews often talk over the heads of prospective customers.
He could mention the additional Bridge features in his conclusion as this could obviate the need for a 2nd cataloguing software and in my case will have made a purchasing decision for me if I can use Keywords in Bridge CS4.

yeah, if the adobe company would make their prices a bit cheaper, i dont think any one would look for hacked visrions, but their prices is tooooo high, only companies can handle that cash

wish if the can make their prices cheaper then now

Technology is not for high class only. Developer like Adobe, developer of AUTOCAD, set high price for their product and It's the same as they set their product for middle-high class.

I understand if their product is great, but they should give us a discount, especially for those who has limited budget.

Who should we blame? The developer or the pirater?

compare to Ps CS3, Ps CS4 is waste to use. its not supporting the fonts(design element fonts)and toggling with more files is difficult in CS4. its irritating the users to handle multiple files. like so many drawbacks are there. its not well featured. So before install the CS4, think twice.

CS3 is good enough. i upgraded the new one. now i dont know how to switch over to CS3. in my team everyone feels the same. when you compare to CS2 to CS3 we liked the features. but compare to CS3 to CS4, features are not well packed.

I've been using Photoshop for a while now but not to its full capability.

I was suprised to learn that it was used to create a lot of the textures and scenery in Avatar
