Adobe Systems today announced it will introduce a beta version of Photoshop CS3, the next release of its digital imaging software, on Friday, December 15th. The company is delivering a widely available Photoshop CS3 beta to enable customers to more easily transition to the latest hardware platforms, particularly Apple’s new Intel-based systems. Photoshop CS3 beta also includes a pre-release version of a major upgrade to Adobe Bridge, as well as a preview release of the all-new Adobe Device Central, which allows users to design, preview, and test compelling mobile content, created specifically for smaller screens. The final shipping release of Adobe Photoshop CS3 is planned for Spring 2007.
