Adobe Photoshop 6.0
by Rick Smith (November 1, 2001)
I installed PhotoShop 5.5 on new system to make sure it functioned so I can now easily switch between independent versions (although both 5.5 and 6.0 can coexist on the same system)
While the user interface remains the greatest and most useful change to Adobe 6.0, subtle changes are a joy to find.
Some of these are:
The ability to open damaged JPEG files. Instead of getting the message given in previous version that Photoshop can't read the file, 6.0 tries its best and presents the readable data. To me partial data is better than NO data.
I'd still like to be able to control the Web Gallery buy allowing either ????
Not sure that I like the way brushes are. I got used to these controls on the right side and now they are on the upper left. Changing a brush results in another brush?, not simply subbing one for another. If this is to be the standard then allow me to specifically arrange each brush. Now I have some useful brushes on top and new ones on the bottom. They should be all together in an order I desire.
It will be interesting to see what changes will be in store for the upcoming Version 7.0 that I have recently heard about.
Stop back as we continue this review.
