Manning’s comments came in reference to the latest additions to the Photoshop line of products rolled out recently by Adobe Systems Inc. (www.adobe.com/go/photoshop),
Photoshop CS3 and Photoshop CS3 Extended will be available as stand-alone applications or as key components of Adobe’s expanded Creative Suite 3 family. The software will be available as a universal application for both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs and will support both Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista. Customers will experience increased levels of performance and speed running Photoshop CS3 on Intel-based Macintosh systems and the latest Windows hardware.
While the new Photoshop packages may open new application areas in manufacturing engineering, Adobe believes the products’ new features—including its extended 3D capabilities—will have major implications across a range of industries and disciplines.
