Consider the Adobe Creative SuiteR Pro
If you design for print, web, or video, consider the new Adobe Creative Suite products. For graphic designers, there’s Adobe Creative
Suite 3 Design Premium software. For web designers, there’s Creative
Suite 3 Web Premium. And for video professionals, there’s Creative Suite 3 Production Premium. All offer unified design environments that include Photoshop CS3 Extended and other professional Adobe creative tools.
Edit 3D and motion-based images
Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended includes key new capabilities that let you incorporate 3D and motion-based content into your image-editing workflow. Now you can render 3D content into your 2D composites, edit existing textures on 3D models, and embed your edited models into Adobe PDF files for easy collaboration with colleagues. Plus, you can animate video frames, paint and clone over multiple video frames, and import and export video files in a wide range of formats.
Work more productively
With improved performance throughout the editing workflow, Photoshop CS3 Extended helps you work more productively—even when editing the most specialized images. Experience native performance on both IntelR and PowerPCR based Macs and on MicrosoftR WindowsR Vista? systems. Maximize your workspace with a streamlined interface, process raw images with increased speed and quality, and manage assets more efficiently in the revamped Adobe Bridge CS3.
Analyze images with precision
Photoshop CS3 Extended helps professionals in manufacturing, medicine, architecture, engineering, and scientific research gain more insight from images. Measurement and counting tools enable analysis of 2D and 3D images. MATLAB users can pull image data from Photoshop Extended into MATLAB and visualize results of MATLAB algorithms back in the software. And medical professionals can correct, annotate, and analyze DICOM files.
Composite and edit with unrivaled power
Leverage the power of the industry standard for the utmost creative control in image editing and compositing. Now you can apply filters nondestructively, manage and correct color more easily, convert color images to rich black-and-white with one click, and retouch images with more powerful cloning and healing tools. Plus, you can enjoy advanced compositing with breakthrough tools for aligning and blending layers automatically and making image selections with one brush stroke.
Edit nondestructively with new Smart Filters, which let you visualize different image effects, and Smart Objects, which let you scale, rotate, and warp raster and vector graphics—all without altering the original pixel data.
2D and 3D measurement tools
Extract quantitative information from images with new tools. Easily calibrate or set the scale of an image, and then use any selection tool to define and calculate distance, perimeter, area, and more. Record data points in a measurement log and export data, including histogram data, to a spreadsheet for further analysis.
Rich painting and drawing toolset
Create or modify images with professional, fully customizable paint settings, artistic brushes, and drawing tools.
Faster, more flexible asset management with Adobe Bridge CS3
Organize and manage images more efficiently with next-generation Adobe Bridge CS3 software, which now delivers improved performance, a Filter panel for easier searching, the ability to group multiple images under a single thumbnail, the Loupe tool, offline image browsing, and more.
Create more accurate composites by automatically aligning multiple Photoshop layers or images based on similar content. The Auto-align Layers command quickly analyzes details and moves, rotates, or warps layers to align them perfectly, and the Autoblend Layers command blends the color and shading to create a smooth, editable result.
Better raw-image processing
Process raw images with increased speed and superior conversion quality using the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in, which now adds support for JPEG and TIFF formats; new tools including Fill Light and Dust Busting; compatibility with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom? software; and support for over 150 camera models.
3D compositing and texture editing
Easily render and incorporate rich 3D content into your 2D composites—even edit existing textures on 3D models and immediately see the results. Photoshop Extended supports common 3D interchange formats, including 3DS, OBJ, U3D, KMZ, and COLLADA, so you can import, view, and interact with most 3D models.
Enhanced Vanishing Point with 3D support
Edit in perspective on multiple surfaces— even those connected at angles other than 90 degrees—with the enhanced Vanishing Point, which also lets you measure in perspective; wrap graphics, images, and text around multiple planes; and output 2D planes as 3D models.
Enhance video directly within Photoshop Extended. Now you can paint, add text, and clone over multiple frames of an imported video sequence.
