Re: Discussion thread -- Photoshop CS3 Beta

for any one else having problems I just found the system requirmentsfor cs3 and you need windows xp or vista to install. I guess my old w2k machine is just getting obsolete.

Thumbs up Re: Discussion thread -- Photoshop CS3 Beta

Be careful! !
I installed CS3 Beta and Bridge no problem on my Athlon 64 3500+, 2GB DDR Kingston and a GeForce 7300GT, and it is all working just fine, apart from some of the already reported bugs. BUT it broke my Bridge in CS2, made it unusable. If I work in CS2 and try to open Bridge it opens in a very reduced window, as what appears to be the folder view panel only, and any attempt to browse to my pictures makes it crash.
No real problem for me as I am a hobby photographer, just an annoyance, but it could ruin a pro's day - week!

Re: Discussion thread -- Photoshop CS3 Beta

Seeing your post I thought I'd better check it - opened the CS2 Bridge with no problems- browsed folders etc...

I'm also on a PC with AMD processor.

Re: Discussion thread -- Photoshop CS3 Beta

From the Adobe CS3 Forums --
"There will be a full 30-day CS3 trial coming for anyone who wants to play with it."

I'm guessing that this will be after the beta period, and when the product is ready for purchase. Any of you folks who don't want your computer to be a "guinea pig" can still find out if you LOVE CS3 Photoshop before you decide to buy it. I may use the 30-day trial, but only if I need the time to get my finances in order I KNOW that I want the features of CS3.

Re: Discussion thread -- Photoshop CS3 Beta

yes. i would also like to know if
CS2 has a ram limit? and if yes, does CS3 have more ram capability?
i have 2GB RAM, and Photoshop wont take more than 1.1 GB RAM
even the images are very big like 1GB with 60 layers, 60x60cm, 300dpi

another questions please:
can i change the color temperature with CS3 (or 2)
after developing to tiff?
the RAW is not here unfortunately, and i cant get it from
the photographer so i would like to change the temp. of that tiff.

thanks

Doug, can you answer any of this?

All I was able to find via search engines was this excerpt from a discussion on an Adobe blog http://blogs.adobe.com/scottbyer/200..._bitswhen.html :

"02:12 PM on December 23, 2006

It's too bad that Adobe hasn't embraced 64 bit yet, but as of now Photoshop CS2 has some support for 64 bit OSes. If you have the RAM (greater than 4 GB) Photoshop will use that RAM as a scratch disk.
Has CS3 improved on this usage? (As an aside, Microsoft has once stated that Vista will spur the move to towards 64 bit computing but their latest efforts have not shown any promotion of their 64 bit OS. I wonder if OS X Leopard will be the bellweather for 64 bit computing)

[What Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop CS3 will do is if it sees your machine has more than 4GB of RAM in it is flip on the bit that allows reads/writes to the scratch disks to be cached by the OS. How well that works partially depends on how well the OS file caching works. - Scott]"

And this about CS2 Maximum file, hard disk , and scratch disk sizes

Photoshop CS2 has constraints on file sizes. The following are the maximum file sizes in Photoshop CS2:

-- For PSD: 2GB

-- For TIFF: 4 GB

Note: Most applications cannot work with TIFF files over 2GB.

Excerpted from:

{Doug -- can you look at questions about CS3 memory allocation in last three posts} - Cole's complaint might be related to memory also?

Hmmm, I'm surprised! The 3 days I ran it, it ran as quickly or better than my Version 7.01 that I own. I'd heard bad things about CS and CS2 being slow, bloated applications and wasn't going to upgrade Photoshop until I bought more RAM, but CS3 ran well with only my 512 megs currently installed.
