Experience native performance on Intel based and PowerPC Macs and on Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista systems. Maximize your workspace with a streamlined interface, process raw images with increased speed and quality, and manage assets more efficiently in the revamped Adobe Bridge CS3. And enjoy complete compatibility with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software (sold separately), so the changes you make to an image in one product will automatically appear in the other.

With Adobe Photoshop CS3 software, you can perfect all of your images with nondestructive filters and more powerful color-correction, cloning, and healing tools, and you can create sophisticated composites more easily than ever with breakthrough tools for automatically aligning and blending layers, making quick selections, and more. The top reasons to upgrade include:

  • Better raw image processing—Process raw images with increased speed and superior conversion quality using the Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in, which now adds support for JPEG and TIFF formats; new tools including Fill Light and Dust Busting; compatibility with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software; and support for over 150 camera models.
  • Smart Filters—Add, adjust, and remove filters from an image without having to resave the image or start over to preserve quality. Nondestructive Smart Filters allow you to visualize changes without altering original pixel data.
  • Peak performance—Experience native performance on Intel and PowerPC based Macintosh computers, and on Microsoft Windows XP and Windows Vista systems.
  • Black-and-white conversion—Easily convert color images to rich black-and-white and adjust tonal values and tints with a new tool. Experiment with the included black-and-white presets, or create and save your own custom presets to achieve the best results.
