Adobe posts Photoshop 6.01 update  
Friday, March 9, 2001 | by
Michael J. Treola notes that Adobe has released a Photoshop 6.01 updater for Mac and Windows that fixes numerous bugs in the latest version of the industry-standard image editing application.

Changes in the Mac version (from the Adobe web site):

- The painting tool brush picker has new usability improvements including:
* Enter brings up and dismisses the preset picker at the current mouse location.
* Double-clicking a brush in the picker selects the brush and dismisses the picker.
* The current brush is always highlighted in the preset picker.
* The current brush indicator always displays the brush size.
* The First Brush and Last Brush keyboard shortcuts (> and <) work regardless of whether the current brush exactly matches a preset brush.
- Image clipping paths in EPS and TIFF files saved from Photoshop 6.0.1 have been modified so that software, such as QuarkXPress, is able to read them.
- ImageReady is able to save and preview animations under constrained memory conditions.
- There is no slow-down of performance when files in the Open Recent list are unavailable.
- Batch file naming works correctly.
- Export Paths to Illustrator retains path scaling.
- The Contextual Menu system extension no longer needs to be installed in order to use the toolbar flyout menus.
- Photoshop 6.0.1 will remove old Photoshop temporary or scratch files if the operating system has failed to do so.
- Selecting a single color in Color Range now works correctly.
- New Japanese character map (CMap) files are included to resolve conflicts with ImageStyler 1.0 and PageMaker 6.5.2 Plus.
Showing and hiding edges for a selection no longer requires pressing Command+H twice.

The 12.4MB Mac download is available here. Adobe has also posted a plug-in that disables the writing of image information into the Get Info window of a picture document.

Changes in the Windows version (from the Adobe web site):

- The painting tool brush picker has new usability improvements:
* Enter brings up and dismisses the preset picker at the current mouse location.
* Double-clicking a brush in the picker selects the brush and dismisses the picker.
* The current brush is always highlighted in the preset picker.
* The First Brush and Last Brush keyboard shortcuts (> and <) work regardless of whether the current brush exactly
matches a preset brush.
