Adobe announced on Wednesday that
a tryout version
of Adobe Photoshop CS, which includes ImageReady CS, is now available for download from the company’s servers. The 248.5MB tryout version expires 30 days after it is installed.
“CS” stands for “Creative Suite,” Adobe’s new moniker for the latest versions of its ever-popular digital imaging applications. New features in the latest edition of Photoshop include: an improved file browser; instant color scheme matching between images; quick contrast fixes with Shadow/Highlight correction; the ability to place text on paths or shapes and edit it any time; integrated digital camera raw file support and more.
ImageReady allows you to create Macromedia Flash animations, complete with vector artwork and variable text, as well as slice images and perform other tasks as part of your Web production process.
If you have an Adobe ID, you can head to a
page for the tryout, or visit Adobe’s
Photoshop CS page
to learn more about the new version.
