Adobe Photoshop CS4 officially unveiled  
Monday, September 22, 2008 | by Rob Galbraith
Photoshop CS4, alongside the rest of the applications that comprise Adobe's Creative Suite, has been officially unveiled.

Leading the list of changes for photographers in the new version of Photoshop for Mac and Windows is a revamped and much improved user interface that replaces various image adjustment dialogs with an Adjustments panel, simplified masking, a new Vibrance control, new panorama creation features and a new depth-of-field blending function plus quicker, smoother navigation of really large photos.

The Mac version gains 16 bits per colour printing, while the Windows version will operate as a 64 bit application for faster performance when large amounts of memory are required to complete a process.

Camera Raw 5, included with Photoshop CS4, adds localized adjustments (by painting or using a gradient to selectively apply the adjustment) and natural-looking vignette filtering even after a crop is applied.

Also included with Photoshop CS4 is Bridge CS4, which offers faster startup, faster browsing of RAW files (by optionally displaying the JPEG inside the RAW file), direct contact sheet and web gallery creation (gallery options include some from Photoshop Lightroom 2) and more.
