Thanks to default1206 and fdiaz2day in BPN for the heads up.
The next major upgrade to Adobe's industry-leading graphics editing software, Photoshop, is set to ship in the fourth quarter of 2003. This year will see the release of Photoshop 8.0, code-named "Dark Matter," and ImageReady 8.0, code-named "Taconite." ImageReady will remain a standalone application.
With this forthcoming release, Adobe is targeting the video and digital photography markets. However, its feature set is still subject to change. The Mac OS X version of the new Photoshop will require v10.2, Jaguar.
Specific updates will include: NTSC/PAL/HD preview choices to compliment the existing CMYK Preview, a Histogram palette, nested layer sets, and text on a path. Photoshop 8 will also include "filter layers," allowing for non-destructive image editing and manipulations, similar to Adobe After Effects' adjustment layers.
