Adobe announces immediate availability of PhotoShop CS4 as well as the whole Creative Suite line

Photoshop CS4Adobe is now shipping Photoshop CS4 as well as the rest of the Creative Suite 4 line of products. PC users will be happy to know that Photoshop CS4 is now 64 Bit. Mac users will have to wait for the next release when Adobe completely ports Photoshop from Mac's Carbon to Cocoa environment. It should be noted that the Lightroom 2.0 is 64 bit for both Mac and PC users since Adobe wrote it in Cocoa for the Mac.

The biggest enhancement in Photoshop is the Content Aware Scaling feature. It essentially has an algorithm that compresses the areas of least complexity. Photoshop's camera raw now features some of the camera raw layer masking that was first introduced in Lightroom 2.0. I suggest that you visit both Russel Brown's site resource site as well as the National Association of Photoshop Professional's Learning Center site on PS CS4.

If you have not purchased Lightroom 2.0 and Photoshop CS4 yet, Adobe is offering a 30% discount on Lightroom 2.0 when you order it directly through Adobe at the same time you order any product with Photoshop in it such as Photoshop CS4, Creative Suite Design Premium CS4, etc.

Until I Blog again, remember not to take life too seriously and make sure you tell someone that is close to you how much you care for them.

Thanks for reading,

John :)
