Since Photoshop 3 I’ve been one of the first in line to upgrade my version of Photoshop. This time it feels different to me. I’ve been using the Beta Photoshop CS3 on one machine and I have to say I like the feel of the new Bridge but I haven’t run into a CS3 feature I can’t live without. Lately I feel like I’m being over run by new Adobe software.
Maybe it’s because Lightroom just came out and I’m still learning how to be effective and comfortable with Lightroom. Just after Lightroom came out I got a copy of Photoshop Elements 5 and it has all the features I need. At this point I feel I could get by just fine with Lightroom and PE 5 so when the CS3 media circus started yesterday it didn’t grab me like a new version of Photoshop usually does.
I’m sure there will be some compelling feature in CS3 that will become a reason for upgrade, I just don’t see it at this point.
