Learn new skills in Photoshop CS3 Beta

Adobe recently surprised the world with the release of a public beta of Photoshop CS3, the next version of its flagship photo-editing and design package. Available to anyone with a valid CS2 installation key, the beta shows many of the features that will be included in the final release.

One key change is the arrival of a Universal Binary version for Macintosh. CS2's performance on Intel Macintosh wasn't the best, and the new version has been developed using Apple's own development tools - giving CS3 a considerable speed boost on the latest dual-core Macs. There's also a new user interface, with a single-column tool palette, and collapsible palettes for most of Photoshop's tools. You'll get more screen real estate, and a look and feel similar to other parts of Adobe's family of creative tools.
