Any CS2 user perceived this?

Any CS2 user perceived this?

Hi all,

I recently upgraded from PS7 to CS2. Felt pretty good at first, but one things annoys me like hell:

The burn tool works as usual, but when I use the dogde tool on the highlight it's acting like a sledgehammer! Even using just 1% opacity is completely impossible because it blurrs everything I touch like a 10 Megawatt beam.

Has anybody noticed this as well or am I the only one?

Patrick

Mine seems to work OK. If you are getting too strong results try changing to midtones from highlites. Sometimes what we think fall into the highlights category are actually upper midtones.

Cheers
Dave

I haven't noticed the problems you describe with the dodge tool - seems to work just fine. My only complaint with CS2 is file browsing....Adobe Bridge is very sluggish, buggy, and eats up resources like crazy, even with a gig of RAM.

You could maybe repair CS2 from disk?

In the mean time, you could try alt-burning highlights as a workaround.

My tests did not show any issue. I agree with the complaint about the bridge, I wish you had the option to run the bridge or the old browser.

Not quite enough. Running 2GB is smooth. 4GB is beautiful. Maybe the processor? Has anyone tried the pentium D with photoshop around here?

Did you update CS2 from 7 without CS?

There is an update to the Adobe Bridge available in the Adobe Site. Version 1.0.2.109. I had a go with it and it does respond a little faster.
