Several months back, when Adobe released a public beta version of Adobe Lightroom, I pondered about Adobe's step into a new arena -- of releasing major software to the public as a free beta months before its actual release. Well, Adobe today has announced a public beta of Adobe Photoshop CS3! You'll be able to get the beta from Adobe Labs with a valid Photoshop or Creative Suite serial number. This is totally cool!
Along with Photoshop CS3 -- which now is a universal binary that FLIES on an Intel Mac -- is also a brand new version ofd Bridge, and a new application called Adobe Device Central, which allows you to preview and optimize content for mobile devices (cell phones, PDA's, etc). No word about Illustrator or any other apps though :(
I hope to post some more information about the new version shortly, but for now, a special episode of PEN will have to suffice :)
