Hi Folks:

There's an article here from Rick Sammon on the top 10 benefits of Photoshop CS3.  If you happen to disagree, fine, but don't shoot the messenger...

Thanks, Mike.  I'd been wondering what was new in CS3 relative to CS2, so I could decide whether it's worth upgrading.  I often only upgrade every two versions, only when there's something I can't live without.  It sounds like this time there are some moderately useful improvements (for me), but maybe not enough to make it worth the time and money to upgrade again.

Non-destructive filters is a biggie for me.  I'm still using the original CS (Bridge looked really kludgy to me) so I'm lookng forward to this upgrade.

Those features are very useful, but on my aging 2 GHz dual Xeon system with 2GB of RAM and running XP Pro, the CS3-Bridge 2-ACR 4 is so slow as to be nearly unusable. CS2 runs quite well on this system. Perhaps it is my setup, but it is the same as for CS2. I posted my settings on the CS3 forum, but thus far there is no relief.

Probably not. Frankly, I think I could still happily run PS7.

Some interesting features, but it looks like smart files on RAW data kind of forces you to convert using ACR4, right?

Otherwise the Intel Mac version is one good reason to upgrade for those switching over to the Mac platform obviously.

Cheers,
Bernard

I've been putting up with the mild nuances of the beta version (PC) for awhile now because I find the new features worthwhile.  I'm looking forward to the official release.

One of the glaring problems with the beta release of CS3 on intel based Macs is that the cursor fails to display the working brush size. This is a known bug that hopefully will be fixed before the final release. The workaround is to run CS3 under the Rosetta emulator which effectively negates the benefits of the universal binary release.
