Late-breaking news – NAPP’s Photoshop CS4 Learning Center is now live! Go there and check it out to see videos of Photoshop CS4 in action. Also, here are the Top 10 new features of Photoshop CS4.
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.

One more cool thing in attending Photoshop World is that you get a preview of the new products of Adobe.
During the keynote, Adobe’s Johnny L provided a preview of the next version of Photoshop. Dubbed “CS Next” internally, the full details and features of this new product will be announced in Adobe’s CS4 launch on Sept 24.
Here are some photos of Johnny L during the keynote:
John Nack was then brought in to do a demo of Photoshop CS4:
Check out the new icon (not sure if this is the same as the shipping version):

I’m sure the NAPP guys are working on some demos and tutorials for the new CS4, so watch out on Sept 23 for more announcements!
