Check Out Some of Photoshop CS 2's Greatest Hits

A new version of Adobe Photoshop is always cause for celebration in the Mac world, and the corks are popping today: Adobe has announced Photoshop CS 2.

One of my favorite Photoshop books has always been Martin Evening's Photoshop for Photographers. Martin is a fashion photographer in London and he appears on a couple of our Photoshop instructional DVDs, including "Secrets of the Photoshop Masters, Volume 2," which we're still giving away.

Martin is a member of the Photoshop inner circle: one of the small group of Photoshop users who alpha-tests new versions and works with Adobe's development teams to refine Photoshop for the real-world needs of working professionals. So when he talks Photoshop, you listen.

He's talking.

Martin is in the latter stages of revising his book for Photoshop CS 2, and he has posted some PDF excerpts and QuickTime movie tutorials on his book's companion Web site. Check them out and get the inside track on some of CS 2's best features. (I can't wait to try out the high dynamic range merging feature.)
