Adobe Photoshop CS2 software,the professional image-editing standard and leader of the Photoshop digital imaging line, delivers more of what you crave. Groundbreaking creative tools help you achieve extraordinary results. Unprecedented adaptability lets you custom-fit Photoshop to the way you work. And with more efficient editing, processing, and file handling, there's no slowing you down.
In practice this proves to be a major step forward as visual file management has now been devolved to the standalone Adobe Bridge application which offers a number of core image handling advantages (see Adobe Bridge boxout). In the process Adobe has taken the opportunity to graft on a number of Photoshop-based automation features such as the ability to apply image mode and type conversions. Particularly impressive is the ability to select multiple images taken with bracketed exposures to produce a single HDR (high dynamic range) image with no less than 32-bits per channel ??? though the editing options then available are seriously limited.
The most welcome Bridge-based feature for Photoshop CS2 users is the ability to load unprocessed camera images (assuming your camera supports such files) into the Camera Raw module. Here the new automatic image analysis, curve adjustments and shadow and highlight clipping previews help you get the best possible results from your digital negatives. And you can now save export settings or simply copy and paste settings from one Raw file to another. Best of all, you can now load multiple files simultaneously and more.
