Well i just downloaded it and installed it. I've attached a image for people to look at. Some things i'm loving in the new ability to turn layers into "smart objects" meaning you can apply filters and treat them like seperate entities meaning they can be turned on or off at will, see layers area of screenshot for preview. If you look at the pallets in the screenshot you'll see icons, they are new so you can click them and have pallets hover on when you need them and vanish when you don't, very nifty i must say. Theres also a new tool called quick selection tool meaning you can make a selection by "painting" over the area. New also is most tools (if not all) work in perspective now. Still playing about with it right now, not forgetting its a early beta but so far so good :D.

Yes, that is nice. But couldn't you just link layers together and do the same thing?

Has anyone else downloaded this?

If not, you need a valid CS2 key and go to the Adobe Labs website.

labs.adobe.com

Actually, there is only a 2 day grace period, otherwise you need the serial.

Yeap, it has been removed from CS3. They want you to use Fireworks instead. Most of the features of Image Ready have already been integrated with Photoshop anyway.

the image ready button has gone, so thats one huge feature thats been removed cus it was so easy to hit that button and jump over to image ready. Also i hear the features have been implemented but theres no roll states for buttons, no slices, no exporting html & css. so what gives.

ok after a bit of wondering around the image ready features are only in the CS3 Extended edition and not in the CS3 standard edition, which to be honest is really really crap. Trying out the extended edition now...

With older versions of Photoshop you can Slice and Export to HTML. I don't think it will do CSS but it will export to HTML. You are right with rollovers though, you can't do those in Photoshop like you can in IR.

Whoa, it's going to get hard getting used to the tool bar on the left being one column instead of two. But I heard you can change that in the preferences somewhere but I couldn't find it in there.

It will be interesting to play around with this 3D stuff.


After briefly checking out Dreamweaver CS3, it seemed much more familiar. The work flow is the same as DW8. Comes with much better templates as previous versions and it is supposed to have more CSS support. Also better integration with Flash. Cool.
