    Adobe Set to Update Its Creative Suite

    Mon Mar 28, 6:00 PM ET

    Adobe Systems is readying the second version of its popular Creative
    Suite bundle of professional graphics software applications. The
    current version includes Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and GoLive.
    Adobe plans to announce the Creative Suite update on April 4, but a
    statement announcing part of the bundle was inadvertently posted to the
    company's Web site over the weekend. The statement has since been
    removed, but not before it was indexed and cached by Google's search
    engine and picked up by enthusiast Web site

    In the statement, Adobe announces Photoshop CS2 and says it will ship
    the update in May. Photoshop CS2 is a key component of Creative Suite
    2, which, according to the statement, will also be announced on April
    4. PC World will post its review of the new Adobe suite on April 4.

    Adobe spokesman Russell Brady declined to confirm the authenticity of
    the statement because of an Adobe policy not to discuss unannounced
    products, but did say that "Web hiccups happen from time to time."
    New Features

    In lte 2003, Adobe released the first Creative Suite software bundled
    with new versions of its applications. That release was the first time
    Adobe put out new full versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign,
    and GoLive simultaneously. The company said at the time that it planned
    to synchronize new releases of the applications in the suite.

    According to the statement, Photoshop CS2 includes a host of new
    features that are designed for digital photography professionals. For
    example, the product will have an enhanced Spot Healing Brush, a tool
    to correct photo problems such as blemishes, red eyes, blurring, and
    lens distortion.

    Also, Photoshop CS2 includes improved support for working with "raw"
    digital camera images, unprocessed digital camera files that are
    increasingly popular among professional photographers and digital
    photography hobbyists. Photoshop CS2 will allow batch conversion of raw
    files and offer better cropping and straightening tools, according to
    the statement.

    The new Photoshop version will also offer access to a new service
    called Adobe Stock Photos, which will be announced on April 4 according
    to the statement. The service will let users shop for images from five
    stock image providers right from the Adobe Bridge, which is an upgrade
    to the old file browser in Photoshop.

    Photoshop CS2 for Mac OS X and Windows is slated to begin shipping in
    May in the United States and Canada. International versions are
    expected to begin shipping in late May and early June, according to the

    Photoshop CS2 will retail for $599. Licensed users of any previous
    version of Photoshop can upgrade for $149.
