Adobe updates Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge

Adobe today (16/11/2007) has updated Photoshop CS3 to 10.0.1. The update brings the following:

  • The speed of moving objects contained within multiple layer sets has been improved.
  • Converting images to CMYK using certain profiles no longer results in black files.
  • The Save for Web feature now includes an option to “Include XMP” (metadata) in the settings menu within the main Save for Web interface, making the existing capability easier to access.
  • When using Save For Web with “Include XMP” enabled, all XMP data is now included in the optimized file.
  • Print color matching has been improved.
  • Images saved as DICOM and reopened in Photoshop CS3 are no longer corrupted on PowerPC based Mac computers.

Adobe has also updated Bridge CS3 to 2.1.1.9 and brings the following changes:

  • A new preference to enable High Quality Preview has been added to Bridge’s Preferences > Advanced panel. When enabled, the preference addresses the problem of a soft or blurry preview appearing in the Preview panel and in Slideshow mode.
  • Data loss that could result from replacing a folder with another folder by the same name has been prevented.
  • Issues that could cause Bridge to crash (for example, when encountering a PDF or AI file) have been corrected.
  • A problem that could cause Bridge to lock up when using arrows to navigate has been fixed.
  • XMP data is now handled correctly when added to CR2 files.
  • A problem that could cause the Loupe tool not to be available after exiting from Slideshow mode has been corrected.
  • Rapid clicks to select multiple files are no longer interpreted as a double-click, so unintended opening of multiple files is now reduced.

And finally, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.3 is available:

  • Additional camera support for the Canon 1Ds Mark III, Nikon D3, Nikon D300, Olympus E-3, and more.
  • Updated Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard support.

The update files are quite large (170MB for Photoshop, 43MB for Lightroom and 59MB for Bridge).
