Adobe Photoshop CS4 and CS4 Extended
Posted 22 October 2008 - 09:57 AM
UI is flat - harsh - harder to read
hard to hit pallet close box
pallets will not dock properly
screen redraw is a problem
why does hue "click on photo" adjustment not work? (it works in lightroom)
why does Ps not respect the dock anymore?
tool bar doesnt have any lines between icons - i can probably get used to that, but it looks odd
THE USE OF CAPITALS IS ANNOYING
no upgrade price from CS3 extended
bridge window is cluttered
when quickly flipping trough photos bridge stops momentarily to allow the thumbnail animation to catch up, WTF?
I want function, not cute animation!
some quotes I found on the web:
Wow, looks just like OS 8.5. Way to go Adobe. I guess they are feeling nostalgic for the 90's? All that dark, flat gray is dreary/depressing.
ACR looks different, bridge looks different, photoshop looks different, why not make it look like lightroom (which looks nice) or Apple's FCP
it's like adobe does not care anymore
since CS3 photoshop crashes ( i remember the days when photoshop would crash once or twice a year!), apps seem just unfinished, like bridge CS3
who is running this company? bean counters or engineers?

But Photoshop... this application frame sounds bad. I really really really like freely movable windows and panels better. Also, all these toolbars (application, option, action) would serve better were they regular panels.

I agree with Ratbite, go read the arstechnica review for a proper critique.
And this Macworld review especially does not comment on the growing PC-like interface that is being inflicted on us. It may solve some of Windows' shortcomings but on a Mac it could have been done MUCH BETTER. It's shocking how a company as big as Adobe could be so ignorant about their core market.
