Updating from cs2 to cs3
In our latest buying guide we've selected some cameras that while they're a bit older, still offer a lot of bang for the buck.If you want a compact camera that produces great quality photos without the hassle of changing lenses, there are plenty of choices available for every budget.They did break a few things too, print from an action doesn't work properly in CS4, you get weird images that look a bit like photographic negatives.It's not too hard to find a discount coupon for 15% off so you can typically get the upgrade for 9.I'm still running CS3 (and was CS before that)If you have a decent Internet connection, Scott Kelby has a series of 4 videos on his blog that highlights many of the new things in CS4: There are also tons of videos over on Adobe TV.
hth There are really to many enhancements in CS3 and CS4 to comment on ... The bottom line is that there have been significant improvements to all aspects of the product (ACR, Bridge, Photoshop) since CS2. has some great classes to get you up to speed on all of the new features.You can also bundle it with Lightroom fairly cheaply, and if you do any amount of printing Lightroom is pretty good, the printing package features in CS4 really stink, even compared to CS3.We have sorted and assembled the answers to the most frequently asked questions here by subject.Why not download a trial version of CS4 and try it out?That's really the only way to know how the new features work and whether it's worth the cost to upgrade. Although I think if I had started using Lightroom before upgrading I might have just gone to the new version of Elements. This allows filters to be applied and objects scaled without affecting the original image resolution or detail. I don't think there was that much in CS4, bridge works a bit better and has improved filtering.
