A sneak peak at Photoshop CS2

...... but it doesn't say that PS CS2 will support the D2X ;). At this moment in time ACR3 (the version which will be released with CS2) will not support the D2X - however Thomas expects that a public beta will be released a few weeks after the launch of Photoshop CS2.

I do not know if you can upgrade the present version to work with the newer version or whether you will have to have ACR3 installed for it to work (i.e. you would have to upgrade CS to CS2). I suspect that if it had been possible to upgrade ACR 2.4 to the D2X /Rebel workable version, he would have already released the public beta - and the reason why it has not is that users would have to have ACR3 installed (but that is pure conjecture).

Scott told me! 8)

He said "George. Adobe says that by the time CS2 ships, they will support the D2X raw file if not before."

All I can say is that at this moment in time the version of ACR which will ship with Photoshop CS2 will not support D2X or Canon 350D/RebelXT. A public beta of ACR 3.1 will be available for public testing two to three weeks after Photoshop CS2 is launched.

Sorry to be a bit pedantic about this, I just don't want see a lot of very disappointed D2X users upgrading to CS2 and finding it won't yet support their NEF files - and then blaming Adobe for saying that it would.

All I can say is that it will be very worth while waiting those additional couple of weeks for :)

Yes, no problem Carol! I do realize that and that is exactly why I asked the question. All I can say is that is what Adobe told him and he has written a book on Photoshop so I would hope they gave him the correct info. I certainly will wait regardless of whether it supports it or not to see the reviews. I don't expect to use PS for my RAW files anyway. 8)

George,

Very interesting article. I knew about this before I (just) bought PSCS, and I decided to go ahead and get the current version, but I hope that Adobe treats me right on the upgrade. This is an expensive application, and I hope that I don't get ripped.... :?

In any case, thanks for the link. With every new upgrade of the software out there, you need to be more and more computer savvy (not to mention the need for more processing power and memory). I hope that this one isn't so complicated that the average user just punts. :lol:

George,

I haven't had any experience with Adobe to speak of. Do they really care about their users enough to respond to a phone call? (Gee, that would be neat....;-))

Thanks,

Here is the official word from Thomas Knoll about what is happening:-

ACR 3.0 and ACR 3.1

Thomas Knoll - 03:54pm Apr 4, 2005 Pacific

There is some confusion about Adobe Camera Raw update plans in the wake of the CS2 announcement. So here are some answers.

ACR 3.0 will be including on the Photoshop CS2 CDs. ACR 3.0 will not support any new cameras beyond ACR 2.4. (Some cameras will be moved from unofficial support to the officially supported list, but that is just a testing issue, since there where no actual code changes in the processing for these cameras).

Because of the fairly long lag time required for testing and CD duplication when releasing a major Photoshop version, some fairly important cameras missing the cut for support in ACR 3.0. Most notably the Nikon D2X and the Canon 350D/Rebel XT/Kiss N.

So our plan is to take advantage of the shorter lag time of the Internet, and to "short cycle" the ACR 3.1 release to add support for these cameras (and possibly a few others). We are planning on posting a public beta release of ACR 3.1 on Adobe.com in early May, about the same time as most purchases of Photoshop CS2 would be receiving their CDs.

ACR 3.1 will only work with Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop Elements 3. Photoshop CS owners will need to upgrade to CS2 to be able to read the native raw files from these newly supported cameras, but they do have the option of the using the free DNG Converter 3.1 to convert the native raw files into DNG format, which can then be opened by ACR 2.4, if they want to delay updating to CS2.
