Me and Photoshop get along great, so when I heard about this, I was very excited to say the least!

On December 15, Adobe Systems released a public beta of Photoshop Creative Suite 3 (CS). Among the features of the new release are a new user interface, camera RAW enhancements, a Quick Select tool, and improved print dialog and print preview function. Adobe has also added some new features like Auto Blend and Auto Align tools and improved black-and-white conversion control.

"Photoshop is one of the most widely used digital-imaging software applications in the world, and its release is being eagerly awaited by creative professionals working in the web- and print-publishing industries. The new version of the software will feature significant enhancements of Photoshop's user interface and functionality.

By releasing a beta version of the next Photoshop early, Adobe hopes to gather feedback before the product's official launch next year."
