We the undersigned respectfully request Adobe restore all missing ImageReady CS2 functions in Photoshop CS3. Adobe claims that Photoshop is "Ideal for Web Designers" on their webpage about Photoshop CS3.
See the screenshot at : http://www.strangeterritory.net/ps-cs3-not-so-ideal.jpg (the relevant areas are highlighted in yellow)
Or visit the original page at:
The absence of several important web design features in PS CS3 that used to be in ImageReady CS2 (previously bundled with PS CS2) makes the statement \"[Photoshop CS3 is] Ideal for Web Designers\" clearly misleading and may even be classified as false advertising.
For dictionary definitions of \"ideal\", visit: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ideal
If Photoshop CS3 was \"ideal\" for Web Designers then we would not see forum posts from Web Designers expressing their dissatisfaction that features they found useful in ImageReady CS2 were missing:
Backup versions of posts made on these pages are available at:
These features include, but may not be limited to:
- Live Rollover Previews in ImageReady
- Rollover design and layer linking
- Optimization Palette while you work in the document view
If the missing ImageReady functions cannot be restored in Photoshop CS3 then Adobe should provide a free, alternative way for purchasers of Photoshop CS3 and Photoshop CS3 Extended to accomplish the same tasks that exist in ImageReady CS2 to all CS3 PSD files. Not all owners of Photoshop CS3 will own Photoshop/ImageReady CS2. The omission of ImageReady in Photoshop CS3 is not obvious enough on the Photoshop CS3 page at:
and also archived for backup purposes at: http://www.strangeterritory.net/ps-cs3.html
While Fireworks CS3 may be touted as the solution, it is a solution that forces users to upgrade at their own expense. This is laughable since the same functionality was available for free in previous versions.
We sincerely appreciate feedback from all Adobe employees and look forward to building a dialogue that will restore Web Developer\'s faith in Photoshop and Adobe\'s advertising standards.
Users of Adobe Photoshop CS3, Photoshop CS3 Extended and Creative Suite CS3 Editions that lack the ImageReady CS2 features in their version of the software.
