The new version of Photoshop

It's about time people start talking about the next version of Photoshop. What would you like to see new in the next version? I'll start it off with the ability to change the color of the cursor, because it is at times, hard to see.

I'd like to see Shadow/Highlight as an adjustment layer. Oh, and better sharpening tools!

I'd like to see better use of the menu bar. I'd like to be able to add/create my own menus and modify the ones that are already there. It would also be nice if the docking bar were adjustable.
I'd also like sizable dialog boxes.
Agree that Shadow/Highlight should be available as an adjustment layer.

I don't have CS but so it may have it already or maybe I just haven't figured out how to do it efficiently in PS7. I want to do drag and drop channel calculations and also to leave the marching ants off until I want them on.

"Ctrl H" will toggle the marching ants off and on.

Vikki,
I guess what I'm after is a way to keep them from ever coming on unless I want to turn them on... which is rarely. If I have guides then I have to do the Ctrl-H thing twice to hide them after they come on automatically, likesay, I have them off and feather my selection, they come back on again... two more ctrl-H's. It's not a big problem, just one of those constant annoyances software of all types is so good at. I've tried changing things in the Extras submenu but so far I haven't found a combination they keeps them off until I toggle them on.

Thanks for the answer; I really admire your work.

Chip

I like to be able to select my text and click through my font list and have the text change to the new font as I scroll through the list. CorelDraw has this capability. It's a nice feature to see the selected text change before your eyes as you scroll through your font list.

When it comes to predicting new version availability, scouting publication dates for new books at Amazon has a good track record. Check out this one. (Note date in the Publisher line.)

Since the CS and PS7 editions of this meaty book came out a couple months after the corresponding versions of PS were announced, I'll stick my neck out and predict an announcement about CS2 at the Spring PhotoshopWorld in Vegas.

= = = = =

On my wishlist...

For actions how about:
* The ability to conditionally execute commands, like can be done in ImageReady
* Increase the number of characters permitted in a STOP command from 255 to 511
* Being able to save action sets inside of action sets (nested action sets)

How about some new "arty" filters.

Vikki:
You know about Daryl Pritchard's add-on to Extensis PhotoBars, right?

It works pretty well (I used it with PS 5.5), but an officially supported function by Adobe would a significant improvement.

My wish list is pretty modest. How about slider opacity controls for everything, including " Apply Image".

Cheers
Dave
