    Things I really like:

    1. New and Improved RAW, B&W is really nice.
    2. The ability to work on JPG/Tiff in ACR. Don't know if I'm dreaming, but I seem to be able to save JPG's from my CP that I couldn't before.
    3. All of actions still work.
    4. Noise Ninja still works (although CS's filte is pretty good now).
    5. My FM resize still works (a cheap but great plugin).
    6. Non-distructive filters - a real time saver
    7. Bridge - just the speed increase alone is huge.
    8. With the discount coupon, probably a "must have" upgrade.
     
  2. all good stuff Jeff!
     
  3. what discount coupon?

  8. Dave,
    Did you get a boxed version or did you download? I am still waiting to hear from Adobe on my boxed version.:smile:

    I know it hit the bank now. I am sure it is shipped .. Haven't heard from Adobe.
    I am not really worried at the moment.
    They are shipping thousands of boxes I am sure they are up to thier ears:>))))
     
  10. I got a boxed version. I was on the phone with them asking about the shipment (still showed "pending" on my order history) when it showed up by DHL courier.
    All installed now and looks like no issues. I did this install on my Mac book Pro here at work. Will do my desktop when I get home.

    Gale you are right, yours will probably arrive as soon as today.
     
  11. Hi Gale,
    I just checked my account at Adobe store and it shows my order as pending. I guess that means that I am still in their system. I guess I will just have to wait a little longer.:smile:

    That is what mine showed as well and it still does though I now have the boxed copy here as of this afternoon.

    Actually, not to split hairs, but it was me that found the new code, first, lol. Ya welcome! But Gale got the ball rolling with the 06 code, and prompted me to look for another when I got a invalid return code trying to use 06!

    Just started playing around with CS3. Thus far, I like what I see.

    Hey Gale...you are one of my favorites on this board. Your always, kind, polite and humble. Glad you agreed with my last PM :D

    How bl**dy annoying to see Adobe ripping off non-US customers just like most other firms.

    Upgrade from CS2 in UK = £162 (324 USD)
    Upgrade from CS2 in US = $199

    Guess I will stick with CS2.
