Good news, thanks for sharing. But actual release might be later than that date.

That's good news, Mike, but I'm still skeptical. Did you ask the cats or just their handlers?

P.S. The CS5 news is good, too. But I haven't really exhausted CS4 (or CS3) yet.

I'm still using CS3 on my main computer and for most tasks it performs very well. I'll probably upgrade to CS5…

That’s what I kind of thought but its not too clear. The article up on MacWeek is equally unclear (http://www.macworld.com/article/150044/2010/03/cs5launch.html).

I did receive confirmation from another source that this will be an actual product release.

The operative words being "will be."

I'll go out on a limb and make the same wild, speculative prediction I made recently for Lightroom 3: I fearlessly predict that Adobe CS5 will indeed appear at some point in the future as an actual product release!

Wrong...April 12th is the official launch (announce) and the final release is traditionally within 30 days or so...except for Lightroom, Adobe does not ship on the same day of announce...the Creative Suite will take weeks to get "into the channel" for release....

However, AFTER April 12th, if you buy Photoshop CS4, you will get a free upgrade to CS5 (for the cost of shipping) and since Adobe has limited the backwards version upgrade to 3 versions, people who are currently using Photoshop CS will seriously want to upgrade to SC4 once the announce happens but BEFORE CS5 actually ships. Once CS5 actually ships, only Photoshop CS2 will be eligible for upgrade pricing...

Ouch! And I though maybe I could skip CS5. But no: I need that "content-aware" stuff!

Me too, this could be a huge time saver. I was not thrilled by CS4 but CS5 promises to be very"interesting".

It's not too good - an even more impressive/scary demo was shown at SIGGRAPH in 2007 which I linked to here back in the day. I think the gentlemen were hired or commissioned by Adobe. There was another video around which showed the content-aware editing demoed at a more advanced level than the CS5 clip, but wasn't able to locate it with quick googling. That's not to say that the CS5 implementation should be poor in any way - the video I linked and the other I saw are tech demos and not ready for prime time, while a feature in CS5 should be robust and easy to use.

Apparently GIMP already has that, although haven't tried it - but it's free.

Well, CS4 already has the content-aware resizing capabilty (after a fashion. its not quite like what's in the youtube demo), you lock out the parts of the image you don't want to change and rest resizes around that.  I don't remember the details, I just used it to turn my kid into a dwarf in his Halloween picture year before last (lock the head and shoulders and ankles feet, squish the in between bits).  I was real impressed because it handled the changes to the backround very well.  What CS5 adds is the ability to make something out of nothing.

Today I can officially announce that I have been a beta tester for Photoshop CS5. I can not discuss the features of the program, so please do not ask. I can post images made with CS5.

All the program features will be discussed after the official launch at 11AM on April 12, 2010.

The following images were made from a scan of a 20 year old negative. The first image is the original scan and the second was processed using Adobe Photoshop CS5. That old image of Garth Brooks has new life thanks to Photoshop CS5.
