Some of the things that I’m excited about are the new user interface, the Depth of Field via Auto-Blend Layers and of course, the Adjustment Panels and the On-Screen Image Controls. The other new features are already in Lightroom (e.g. Graduated Filter, Adjustment Brush, Post-Crop Vignetting) and I’m glad to see them put it in Photoshop.
Also, some screenshots and pricing of the new Photoshop CS4 is available from Rob Galbraith’s site.
Pricing is US$699 (US$999 for the Extended version) with an upgrade price of US$199 (US$349 for Extended) from CS3. Photoshop CS4 and other Creative Suite 4 apps are shipping 4th quarter of 2008.
Here are some screenshots of the packaging of the new Photoshop CS4.
