howdy folks,

I’ve seen a couple of news sources pointing to a new video from adobe labs.  Whether this makes it into Adobe Photoshop CS5 is uncertain, but it looks like Adobe is trying to catch up with Corel Painter in the area of realistic painting, brushes and simulated media.

here’s the link:

I also talked to a co-worker who attended the recent photoshop world.  He said there was a closed door meeting with some plug-in developers that required non-disclosure agreements (big surprise).  He said he expected photoshop to be announced at one of the bigger trade shows at the beginning of the year and released before July.  I’m still sticking with my april release estimate to stick with an 18 month release schedule (with an announcement in or around February).
